I am a bit of a guitarist, a composer in my spare time, I love sound and of course electronics. My thing is building tube amps for electric guitar (but not only), I have made more than 20 to date but I do not sell it.
When I can't find what I'm looking for on the market, I happen to manufacture it, which is the case for The Curve: I have a collection of booster pedals but none have ever satisfied me except by modifying them heavily.
Chexbres: a beautiful place to live and work serenely
My little lab a home: inventing at any time is therefore possible, that's comfort!
It all starts on a breadboard : here a light bulb compressor (another one of my crazy ideas, maybe on sale as a pedal one day if I manage to master the process):
Pre-production version, very first test: there are still some mechanical details to adjust (machining not yet perfect) but the sound is already there ... at 110%!
Specially designed to overdrive the preamp tubes of your favorite guitar amplifier, this booster offers a compensation of the frequency response when the gain is pushed to avoid hugly blocking distortions which gives a terrible farting sound. Ultimate tool for obtaining massive distortion but which retains the definition necessary for the virtuoso's playing.
I assemble The Curve myself then I test all the parameters
Making a good and beautiful pedal is ok but then you have to show it in its best light: thank you to my pro photographer friend:
Other in house productions
Dynamics is life! Any musician will tell you. In search of the sensations experienced in concert, I have always been disappointed by everything I have been able to test in hifi, so I tackled the problem according to my criteria and it gives:
MnZ's Grand Monitor: active triamplification with a total of 1000 Watts, no limit in the lows, AKM DSP filtering and flat response, ridiculous distortion, frightening dynamics thanks to professional Class D amplifiers from Pascal-audio (https: // www .pascal-audio.com), specifications of a studio monitoring system in your living room in fact.
The musicians are so present on good live recordings that we think we can go and circulate between them on stage !
If there are amateurs (only in geographical proximity given the compulsory installation by myself in your listening room), contact me for a study followed by an offer - minimum budget 18'000 Chf
It's not just music in life! An exceptional spot for us longboarders: the Vallée de la Jeunesse in Lausanne
Okay, here we are having a drink on the shores of Lake Leman but we sweated a lot just before - little vintage note: who knows the skate on the right?
