About

It began in the summer 2015. After working for years in the guitar business we decided to get back in time to the old analog sound of the 50s and 60s. Ignoring all the standards we learned and knew about we began to search for new ways to integrate tubes into a guitar effect pedal. We discovered some little very durable tubes and began to experiment. And so we created „ERIC“...

„ERIC“ is a so called „Tube Saturator“. He richens the sound of every guitar amp. Of course he is able to produce high quality crunch and overdrive sounds. But it also brings your clean sound to a higher level.

In addition to the tubes only best parts are used to provide the highest quality for you.

"ERIC" is completely analog. You got 3 pots for changing level, saturation and low. You engage him with a soft touch switch. That´s all, an easy and amazing friend not made for a ton of features. 

About the team

Face Pedals is a division of Janssen Guitars. The members of Janssen Guitars are musicians, technicians and inventors. Our facility is located in Northern Germany, so we use high quality parts mostly produced in Germany. We are playing guitars, basses and other stringed instruments since we were young. We are graduates from different jobs. Working with wood, metal, lacquer and electronical parts, in every realm we need we have the people we need. Since 2006 when Uwe Janssen founded his first guitar business, the team found together step by step and today we are not only a business with a boss and his employees, we are a community of specialists and friends, working for a vision to grow.

What`s your part in this campaign ?

We worked long and hard, to make “ERIC” become a representative for the tone, everyone of us was searching for. We already got feedback of some musicians in our area, testing the prototypes we built. And they confirmed us. They love him like we do. So we want you, to take part in this project. Become a member in this community, buy your "ERIC" and help us, to raise the project to a higher level.

ERIC in Action!

Listen how "ERIC" works on a premium tube amplifier. Great licks with a Fender Stratocaster powered by "ERIC". 

Amp used in the video: Friedman PT20 (2x12" with Greenbacks)

Even on a cheap amp, "ERIC" lets his magic speak in the next video. It's a low priced Career Combo with a small 8" speaker. 

The next video shows you how amazing "ERIC" sounds with some ambient effects involved.

Risks and challenges

The only risk we face would be a shortness of supplies. Even though we are well stocked and only working with highly reliable companies based in Germany, there is a chance to get delays in our production line caused by our suppliers.

In the worst case, we can switch to another company getting our parts to keep the production running.

If this Kickstarter campaign will hit the ceiling, the delivery time could differ. We are well prepared for a high amount of orders. Since our pedals are handcrafted in Germany, we can promise a top notch quality. And we won’t change that. In case of a huge amount of orders, we have some extra helping hands just waiting to be called.
