Some beautiful stompbox / guitar fx pedals from Bologna in Italy.
Name: Pasquale
Company Name:   

A quick introduction please, name, company, location:
Creation of custom pedals for electric guitar and bass built entirely by hand, from the circuit to the graphics. The graphics can follow a standard line or be customized on request and are produced by the use of the technique of "reverse etching". We also do repairs and modifications on stompboxes and guitar effects pedals. The brand is named after my last name and the works are manufactured in Bologna (Italy)

What got you started making gear?
It started by passion to play the circuits of my favorite effects pedals already existing on the market, and then insert them into my pedalboard. Then I started to make changes to get a personal sound even more satisfying. Then I felt the need to develop and broaden the use of a technique that I employ to realize the personalized graphics on standard aluminum box that contained the circuits made by me. Now I can finally say that I found the right balance in order to create beautiful sounding and looking pedals at a high standard of quality.

What gear do you make?
At the time I build pedals distortion, fuzz, overdrive, buffer, booster, compressor, tremolo but I plan other types of effects.

Where do you operate from?
Bologna (Italy)

What about making gear do you like the most?
I think the overdrive pedals are my favorites

Is this a hobby or full time operation?
I carry out my work as a hobby because I already have a main job

Who inspires you/who do you look up to musically, IE what gear do you admire?
I like many artists, but David Guilmour, Stef Burns, Eric Clapton would say that they are my favorites and as a style of music and touch, that sounds like products

What pisses you off/what do you like; about the boutique audio gear building industry?
Negative at the moment I have nothing to say. I can only say that the world of boutique pedals is a beautiful world and immense. Especially if they are handmade. Also know that we can fulfill the desire of a guitarist making him the pedal of his dreams and receive compliments for the work done, even after a long time, it is a great satisfaction.

Are you still in a band or play music and do you use your own gear?
Currently play in two bands and use for most pedals of my realization. My goal is to have a pedalboard which is composed exclusively of pedals of Pavone FX Pedal
