Service pricing breakdown

  • We charge à 100 € for planning your pedalboard.

We’re not super strict about the time frame, but we feel that if a session drags on for too long, decision making tends to get more complicated, and concentration will slip. If needed we can book a second appointment, deciding on the additional charge on a case-by-case basis. Read more about the planning process from our Planning your pedalboard -tutorial.

1) Effect pedals

A detailed list of all effects used will be printed on your final pedalboard receipt. You will pay a most favourable price for your pedals, based on current price levels in Central Europe. Our products all come with a three-year warranty.
