High voltage steam engines!

Tube amplifiers!

A delicious blast from the past, still as contemporary as they can be in passionate niche markets.

After making guitars and effects units and plugging it all into my trusty and great Rivera amp the challenge to build my own came all to convincingly to me! How do they work? How can I hotrod something classic into my own version? Can I make it work, will it sound good?

Yes! They sound delicious and they are fun, full stop! Would like to find out more, get some advice or something big bold loud and beautiful made? Drop me a line!

I make effects units, stompboxes and tube amps under the label 'BigNoise Amplification'.

Would like to find out more, get some advice or something unique and customized to your needs?

The ultimate hotrodded Tubescreamer of your dreams?

A warm wobbly optical tremolo circuit in a box, just like they used to make them in the ol' vintage amps?

Don't just take my word for it....!

I couldn’t drive my Mesa for tone and was left with a feeble, bee-in-a-bottle sound.
Stephan sorted it!
He built me an attenuator and combined with his pedals, there’s a warm, organic sound - but with plenty of definition and tonal range.
Great customer service too. Thanks Stephan!

Stephan's vintage pedals are great, I have a tubescreamer/compression, treble booster & high gain pedal which I use in every performance.
hey deliver the great tone that I like.
I recommend them to anyone who's searching for the holy grail of vintage tones for your sound.

I had Stephan build me an analog double delay unit fx pedal. Completely customised with a name sticker as well!
It is by far the best sounding pedal I own. I also bought a Blues crunch pedal, which is lovely and mellow.
Since I'm not a heavy metal band, it is more subtle than most off the shelf & sounds beautiful when mixed with the delay pedal.
It has become part of my signature sound.
I totally recommend Big Noise pedals to anyone who wants a well priced fx pedal with a world class sound. www.brycewastney.com

I recently purchased the 10w valve HARPMAN amp from BigNoise amplification teamed it up with a weber 10" speaker noted for its early break up and "Chicago HONK".
Man what a little beauty I cant go a day without blowing my harp through it!

Guitar sounds great thru it also but primarily its for harp honking blues.

I love it! Well done Stephan!
