We make guitar pedals and electronic effects in a house in the woods. Each unit is adorned with unique artwork hand painted by our artist friends, making every EAR pedal a true one of a kind.
Who we are
Hi there. We’re Emma and Ryan. The E&R in EAR.
We love acronyms.
Other things we love—music, friends, dogs, food (fried or otherwise), hoppy beer, fine whiskey (or cheap whiskey).
Most of all, we love music. And people who play music. And having people over to our house in the woods to play in our music room (formerly known as our garage). Our love for music drives EAR.
We don’t have a fancy workshop. Our pedals are all hand-crafted in our home. We keep them in our china cabinet because we don’t have any china.
Where we make our pedals
Ryan drills the holes and assembles the box in our hallway/ music-room-foyer/adapted-assembly-line (some call it the Scary Room).
Emma the circuitry-nerd and electronics-wizard works her magic in a coat closet, meticulously and lovingly soldering the pedal brains to spark the soaring sounds of rock & roll.
Why we make our pedals
We work independently, in our free time, on our own terms, after our day jobs, because we love making pedals.
Why do we love pedals? Good question. We’re glad you asked.
It’s because every musician has a unique sound. We love that about music. And we want to help you amplify the sound that only you can make.
What we put on our pedals
We like our pedals to be unique, too. So each is covered with art created by our artist friends.
Odds and ends
Our pedals are powered by a standard -9 volt power supply.
They’re covered by our guarantee against malfunction as long as EAR is in business. You ship, we fix, no hassle.
We’re open to trades for other music gear (unique effects, amps, guitars) so send us a message to let us know what you have and we may be able to work something out!
