French pedal manufacturer Puzzle Effects is attempting to eliminate cables with their fit-together pedals that… well, they’re puzzle pieces. Puzzle Effects recently launched a Kickstarter seeking what works out to a little over $20,000 for the creation of their first three pedals. They are:
- Rocket, which is born from the company’s love for JFET boosters, for their unmatched dynamic response and natural compression
- Submarine, which is a delay pedal with a deep, ambient echo based around a PT2399 chip, and
- Buggy, which is an overdrive emulating the roaring sensation that can be produced by a big saturated amp
The pedals are all True Bypass and all analog. Puzzle Effects also addressed the possibility of delays with the pedals due to COVID.
“The COVID-19 health crisis has had a heavy impact on the electronics industry, as well as on the transportation of goods. As a result, we are not immune to component shortages and delivery delays. That’s why we have identified problem components in advance and allowed for a margin of error in our estimates. This way, we believe we can keep our promises and deliver your pedals on time.”
