Malekko was formed back in 2006 and is now recognised the world over as being a leading Guitar Effects brand. In its starting stages the fates of so many prototypes unable to achieve the high expectations of Malekko were scrapped. Too dark and horrible to describe, these pedals' demise would make every fan of guitar effects wince, shudder and cross themselves. But all was not lost-- the Echo 600, soon followed by the Echo 300, met the highest standards for Malekko’s hand-built pedals and are considered by many to be the best examples of new/old analogue delay technology.
Check out the rest of the Malekko range we have proudly on offer here online at Guitar FX Direct. A "chance" encounter with a Port Wine Cheese Log led Malekko to strange lands in the north and Grant Richter of WIARD SYNTHESIZER COMPANY. Black, esoteric rituals lasting hours and hours ensued in the form of phone calls. After completing other strange customs, Grant was willing to indulge the Malekko brand. The WIARD 1200 series eurorack modules followed. They continue to build and release classic and new Wiard synth modules with many new, unreleased designs to come.
Malekko’s sixth year promises more modules, more big little pedals, more visionary designs, more hand-built custom pedals and more happy accidents. In the mean time, check out the Malekko Omicron Fuzz Guitar Effects Pedal, and the Malekko Ekko 616 Analog Delay Guitar Effects Pedal.
