Gear Supply Co. Guitar Pedals

$21,538

Hi, we’re Gear Supply Co. and we make high quality guitar goods.

Why Pedals?

Since we started this company 2 years ago, we’ve been asked nonstop when we’re going to begin making guitar pedals. Our goal is to be the one-stop-shop brand for all guitarists, so it's a logical evolution for us. Because we only make high quality products that we ourselves use, we wanted to do it the right way.

So… Pedals!

We teamed up with Paul Spears, who is an amazing pedal designer, to make some really cool circuits for you. We wanted to keep things simple. All of the pedals feature 4 knobs, and are designed with ease of use in mind. They have a massive sweet spot of tonal availability.

Low Prices?!

We're able to offer such low prices on our boutique quality hand wired pedals because of our business model. We're the manufacturer, the distributor, and the retailer, allowing us to cut out the middle men, and pass the savings directly on to you, our customers. On top of that, to get the ball rolling, we're offering special early bird pricing for the first 25 units sold of each pedal.

Why Kickstarter?

We decided to go the kickstarter route because we need help hitting manufacturing minimums so we can make boutique pedals affordable without compromising on quality. Your voice matters and we want you to be a part of this journey with us. So we need your help. Check out our rewards, preorder a pedal, and even if you can’t, help spread the word so we can make our vision become a reality.

Thanks for your support.

- The Gear Supply Co. Team.

Risks and challenges

We are a very communicative brand. Should any issues arise, we will update everyone immediately, and work swiftly to resolve them. We have contingency plans in place for multiple things that may arise.

1. Turn times could be out of our control.

There may be an instance where parts or materials used for manufacturing are out of stock, or do not arrive on schedule. This may lead to unforeseen delays, however our sourcing for parts is very reliable and do not see this being an issue.

2. Demand could exceed our expectations

In extreme circumstances, because these pedals are handmade, the demand for pedals might exceed our manufacturing capacity. This could result in moderate delivery delays. However, we are confident in our ability to scale with demand and don't foresee this being an issue.

3. There could be unforeseen manufacturing issues

We have working prototypes, but as we move into the full production phase, new problems may arise that require extra attention. It is very important to us that we release great products. There is a buffer built in on our schedule just in case, and we will continually update our backers with any and all relevant information.
