We’re moved by what moves you. That directly correlates to the development of a sound, a box, a pedal. Before we ever sell one, these creations, these prototypes get sent to a chain of artists that we look up to. They give it a strenuous workout that includes tour, studio use, weekend gigging, and maybe an occasional Instagram tease. After we get everyone’s notes back, we make changes, then do it again. When it’s perfect (to us), you see it. Then you play it and make songs that move us and inspire us to make better gear.

Creating a great sounding guitar effect product is all about trial and error. Whether you are hot rodding a tube amplifier or developing a great sounding analog circuit, the process involves building, modifying and rebuilding until you arrive at just the right combination and configuration of components. It is adherence to the process that leads to great tone. To build products that endure through the ages, there needs to be a focus on the integrity of the craft. At Big Joe, there are no short cuts or compromises. Sometimes it is more magic than science, but we tinker until it is right. When you see the Big Joe Crown, know that you are always getting a quality product.
