Founded in 2007 by Mike Blakemore and Daniel Minton and with an operational base split between Oklahoma City and Nashville, DMB Pedals is what we call an ’emerging-but-already-quite-established’ stompbox manufacturer.
DMB’s mission is to offer original and inspiring hand made pedals (no clones), and will be showcasing all their ten creations at Summer NAMM later this week through our Stompbox Exhibit.
Their line offers your usual smorgasbord of distortions, but it looks like one of their most popular offerings is the Lunar Echo (one of the “tallest” pedals we’ve seen), a true analog, bucket brigade delay that features a 3-way modulation toggle switch for Normal/Tape/Wrecked, and a “Take Off” footswitch that sends the pedal in self isolation mode. With the toggle in Normal mode, the modulation circuit is bypassed; Tape mode adds in the internal modulation for controllable chorusing vibrato on the repeats, while Wrecked mode unleashes the full potential of the modulation section – check out the video below for some sound.
For those who can’t live without distortions, here are two videos of some of DMB’s more popular Drives.
