Overview of Blackout Effectors
For a great many people across the world, the dream is to find a job which indulges their passions;
this dream has come true for the team at Blackout Effectors. This North Carolina foursome design
and build boutique effects pedals they want to use. Through a highly selective process they only
market the ones they think are “Cool as S**T”.
Designing and selling the pedals which matter to them has built Blackout Effectors a worldwide
reputation for quality and individuality.
Blackout effectors pedals are forged on variety – from the eclectic tastes of the team to the
incredible selection of amps and guitars used to test the pedals at every point during the production
process. This, they say, ensures that Blackout Effector’s pedals sound fresh and unique on any rig

With lead designer Kyle Tompkins’ foot firmly planted in the swamp of psychedelic rock, it is
unsurprising that the focus for Blackout Effectors has been on a variety of fuzz, overdrives and
Blackout’s speciality, however, lies in blended circuits. Although the Musket, perhaps their best
known pedal, reliably belts out simple Muff style fuzz, other models like the Blunderbuss and the
Twosome intertwine fuzz, distortion and overdrive. These blends can be subtly tuned by the player
to produce a wealth of unearthly sound control.
By further adding a string of pitch, phase and ring mod circuits – alone and in combo with their fuzz
circuits - Blackout Effectors ensured their guitar effects pedals a unique place on the world’s pedal
boards. Recent adventures in sound have seen them branching into an ethereal reverb which brings
a distinctly vintage edge to the collection.
