Lotus Pedal Designs is a Minnesota based stompbox manufacturer that focuses on the beauty of simplicity. Designer Sean Earspamer’s credo, “I design Lotus pedals to be simple, because I want to keep your focus on playing guitar, not fiddling with your gear” is readily apparent just from looking at any of the products, all of which use single unit housing and minimal knobs. Of course, the simplicity of function rather than form is what gives these pedals their charm though, and their latest, the SnowJob Dual Mode Underdrive, is a perfect example: the simple concept of an underdrive (instead of driving the amp like an overdrive, it drives the guitar, which fills the space between the notes with harmonic content) implemented into a simple design for simple and effective use. – Eric Werner
