I started Tonetuga because the pedals that I wanted to play didn’t exist. They didn’t sound how I wanted, they didn’t look how I wanted, they had features that I thought were silly and impractical. I went to a few smaller companies about making some specialty stuff and always got some version of “we don’t have any plans to do anything like that right now”. So, I bought a few books and a bunch of broken craigslist pedals, burned myself with a soldering iron a few times and landed here.
There is more to a pedal than simply changing your sound. There is an important link between the artwork and the sound that is missed out on. I want you to have a perception of what the pedal is going to sound like before you ever step on it. I want to create a feeling that translates to inspired playing. The feeling of opening a pedal box for the first time, every time you step on it.
So let's make some noise together!
What’s with the Turtles?
You might notice the logo is a turtle. Why? Because they’re beautiful animals that are on the brink of extinction. I am also from North Carolina where they are pretty common during nesting season. If you head on over to our Sea Turtle Conservation page, you can read up on why this is important. We also donate a portion of our profits every year to sea turtle conservation efforts. Won’t always be a lot, we’re a small company after all, but we are doing what we can in the best way we know how.

Is the Clockwork Multidriver supposed to make that noise?
Yes, the Clockwork at maxed out gain make a neat-o sputtery oscillating thump. This is on purpose. When you go into that sputty fuzz area try rolling your volume to 10 to get a glitch synthy fuzz tone. Then try going rolling your volume back and forth from 0-4 to change the pitch slope of the gain, you can noodle around in that area to make some pretty cool noises. We encourage you to check out any of the demos for it on YouTube to hear all about it!
