Stompnorth Pedals - Boost Guitar Pedals

Stompnorth Pedals

Stompnorth founder Duncan MacKinnon describes his pedals as 'a labour of love'. Using highest quality components, the pedals are designed to keep your core tone intact, with minimal noise and maximum mojo.

Based in Edinburgh, Scotland, Stompnorth makes a small range of high quality guitar pedals. The Clipshear Getter Drive is the flagship pedal - a valve-based drive with silicon and germanium clipping - but perhaps the most distinctive pedal in the range is the Midgie Booster, which features real Outer Hebridean midgies collected by Duncan  placed within the power light, Very Jurassic Park!

STOMPNORTH Midgie Booster Overdrive

£180.00

Designed as an 'always on' pedal, the Stompnorth Midgie Booster Overdrive features a single MOSFET transistor offering over 20dB of boost, with selectable silicon or germanium diode clipping.

This handmade pedal is wired point-to-point and features high quality components, such as the large Jupiter capacitor which takes pride of place.

From subtle harmonics and gentle boost to vintage crunch, this pedal brings the vintage vibes. Throw in the option to select either silicon or germanium clipping for different flavours and this is a fantastic loud clean boost/mild overdrive pedal that you'll never want to turn off.

Oh, and the power indicator features several of the finest Inner Hebrides midges, personally collected by Stompnorth founder, Duncan!

This is a superb, super-stackable pedal, working just as well after a clean boost or before another overdrive.

Features:

  • Volume, Gain, Overdrive & Boost Controls
  • High quality components
  • Power: 9V power adaptor, centre-negative (not included)

STOMPNORTH Clipshear Getter Drive

£199.00

Stompnorth's flagship pedal combines MOSFET, valve, and silicon and germanium diodes to achieve a multitude of low to mid-gain tones.

Duncan MacKinnon designed this pedal to be an integral part of your rig, an 'always on' pedal that enhances your core tone. Based around a 12AU7/ECC82 valve, it can thicken up your tone and layer on harmonically rich gain in a progressive way, enhancing rather than masking your core tone.

The Stompnorth Clipshear Getter Drive provides up to 21dB of boost that can really drive the input of your valve amp, but the analogue character and true valve gain also makes it a brilliant solution for recording.

Controls

The Gain control adjusts the amount of pre-amplification applied to the input of the valve circuit, and can be used in conjunction with the Volume control to “goose” the front end of your amp, or Clipshear’s valve circuit.


The Valve control adds gain to the valve signal path, which produces an amazingly responsive and transparent overdrive ranging from subtle boost to sweet overdrive. Used in tandem with the Gain control, you can achieve tons of sustain and a thick overdrive sound.

The Si / Ge / Off toggle switch adds silicon or germanium diode clipping to the signal path. Engaging it with high gain settings turns an overdrive tone into distortion, or at lower settings to a responsive crunch. Si is transparent and precise, Ge is “squidgy” and vintage. Note that engaging either diode results in a considerable volume drop. This is normal.

Use the active Volume control to either trim the output of the Clipshear Getter Drive to parity with the bypassed signal, increase the volume of the signal when the diodes are engaged, or to drive your amp’s input. There's also enough headroom to experiment with rolling back guitar volume to further expand the range of available textures.

The blue power indicator glows when the Clipshear Getter Drive is connected to an appropriate live power supply. When the pedal is activated, an orange indicator light glows from within the pedal.

Handmade in the UK from the highest quality components - just take a look at that beautiful Jupiter capacitor! - the Stompnorth Clipshear Getter Drive is perfect if you're after superb translation of your core tone for low to mid-gain purposes.

Features:

  • Gain, Volume, Valve, Si/Ge/Off controls
  • 12au7/ECC82 Valve drive with silicon and germanium diode clipping
  • 21dB of boost
  • Highest quality components
  • Handmade in the UK
  • Power: 9V power adaptor (min 100mA), centre-negative (not included)

STOMPNORTH Bass Midgie Overdrive

£185.00

The bass-tuned Stompnorth Bass Midgie Overdrive is in similar tonal territory to the Electro-Harmonix Bass Muff - but that's where the similarities end...

Its handwired point-to-point circuit is built around a single Darlington transistor and symmetrical silicon diodes. 

This is a great pedal to enhance your bass tone and get it growling. Use the toggle to switch between silicon diode clipping and "Fauzz" (faux fuzz derived from transistor feedback) to get your preferred flavour of drive tone.

The power indicator features several Inner Hebrides midges, personally collected by Stompnorth founder, Duncan! They won't bite, but this pedal will.

Features:

  • Handwired point-to-point bass overdrive
  • Made in Scotland
  • Select from silicon or 'fauzz' tones
  • Volume, Gain, OD & Si/Fauzz controls
  • Power: 9V centre-negative (not included)

STOMPNORTH Fishmoth Vintage Fuzztoner

£180.00

Stompnorth's Fishmoth Vintage Fuzztoner is based on the classic Fuzz Face circuit made famous by Jimi Hendrix.

Built around low noise, expensive foil capacitors, this very useable fuzz can be adjusted using the A/B toggle, which switches between bright and normal frequency response. In addition, the Bias control enables you to dial in gated, splattery, dying battery sounds.

If you love the Fuzz Face sound, this will get you all those silicon tones and more.

Features:

  • High quality, low noise circuit based on Dallas Arbiter Fuzz Face
  • Fuzz, Bias, Volume & A/B Controls
  • Power: 9V power adaptor, centre-negative (not included)
