I founded Lovekraft Effects in 2006 with the concept of bringing great sounding pedals to players at moderate prices. The two most popular Lovekraft pedals are the Mojo Drive and the Chupacabra, based on the Tube Screamer and Proco Rat, respectively.
In addition, there's the Crawlin' Kingsnake, a modded Marshall Bluesbreaker and the Kronos, based on the Son of Screamer DIY project. Last but not least is the Pusher, a single knob clean boost intended to "push" a tube amp into overdrive.
Generally, Lovekraft pedals are available two ways: in a "Stealth" version with a powdercoated box or a "Deluxe" version with a swirl painted Lucibox enclosure and other upgraded features.
After taking numerous electronics courses in the 80's, I received a Bachelor's degree in Radiography (X-ray). As x-ray systems are based on a large ultra high voltage electron tube,
I was able to apply this knowledge to tube amps. Local guitar players began bringing over Blackface Fenders and old 4 input Marshalls for repair and I also built several Marshall style amps.
Later, after encountering a few extremely good sounding pedals, I built a few for myself. Friends that came over to jam wanted one for themselves, and so did so their friends. These players posted on various web forums and with that, numerous requests to buy pedals came in. Thus, Lovekraft Effects began.
All current Lovekraft pedals use custom designed circuit boards, Cardas audiophile grade silver solder, Switchcraft jacks and other top quality parts. Each pedal is handmade in the USA and are true bypass.
The name "Lovekraft" is derived from the writer H.P. Lovecraft, whom I admired. Another company name under consideration was "Most Excellent Effects" but Lovekraft won!
