Sound Devices

I have been releasing batches of handmade electronic audio devices since 2004. My main early output was a wide variety of Weevils and BugCrushers along with the WOM kit for workshop teaching events - check the Old BugBrand site for details on the early years.

Since 2013 I have moved mainly to 'The Reds' - standalone processors designed for live and/or studio work, many with CV (Control Voltage) potential. They are all designed to be played - featuring large controls and characterful sound.

Several of the older designs here are now Archived and will not be produced in the same manner again - but designs do regularly get re-imagined, so.. To stay informed of new developments and releases, join the BugList via the Contact Page.
