I began to design pedals in my late years of secondary school. I decided then, that this is what I wanted to do with my life, and have remained dedicated ever since. This has grown to be my professional occupation.
Pedals provide me with a perfect balance of mental stimulation, as well as hand craft. It is my belief that the universe can be understood as an expression of rhythm and pattern. Building pleasant sounding effect circuits is my way of playing back with the universe, and it’s a real trip. My design style might be thought of as a hybrid combination of vintage and modern technologies. I build each pedal myself, by hand, as I would for myself or for a close friend.
This is a one-person operation. I work from home, by humble means. The enclosures are drilled and powder coated in my garage. My name is Darron Thornbury, and I live in the outer south-eastern suburbs of Melbourne, Australia.
