Ivan Richards Class A Distortion Effects Pedal - RARE, handmade in OZ!






Ivan Richards is a renowned amp technician/modifier, effects pedal builer and guitar repairer based on the Central Coast of NSW.

Ivan has worked with some of the best musicians in Australia. The Hoodoo Gurus and Bob Spencer (The Angels, Skyhooks) have used Ivan's pedals including the Class A Distortion. You can see pictures on his website of this beautiful handmade distortion pedal on many famous guitarists' pedal boards.

This is the only one currently available online. It's handmade with the highest quality components, so it's guaranteed to provide you a professional distortion tone not many others possess.

Whilst it's not the first one we have ever played it is the first we've ever had available for sale so get in quick!

How does it sound?

Warm, fat, harmonically rich, great at low and high gain settings and it sounded HUGE through every amp we tested it on.

Exceptionally touch responsive all discrete class-A NPN/PNP transistor circuitry, no IC's or clipping diodes for a predominantly 2nd harmonic distortion output. Adds a nice valvey brilliance. The sort of pedal you will find yourself leaving on all the time.

We'll try and find some time this week to get a video demo up so you can hear just how good this pedal is. We also offer live video chat to answer any questions and let you hear the pedal as close to in-person as possible.

There is also numerous mentions on various gear forums and all are VERY positive when it comes to this pedal.

Standard 9V Adapter or 9V battery operated.

If you already know Ivan Richards, and regrettably let one of these Class A Distortion pedals go in the past, here's your chance to get it back! If you're a YouTuber and want to be the first ever to post a review, now is your chance!!

Like all products listed by TMA you are welcome to come plug in and play this awesome pedal (post lockdown) so just reach out to arrange a time.

Feel free to get in touch!!
