hotpicksThe PedalStation 1 contains a host of classic analogue guitar pedals all crammed very neatly into vintage one games console. Built by one mad genius, this thing is pretty epic!

Posted on Instagram by Thiago Ferri, aka tethinhas, the PedalStation 1 contains a whole load of guitar effects crammed into an old Sony PlayStation console. It contains an Ibanez Tube Screamer TS808, a ProCo RAT, the Mad Professor Deep Blue Delay and an Electro-Harmonix LPB-1. Now that’s a great set of analogue effects pedals! I love that they’re all contained into one compact unit.

Here’s the man himself explaining why he chose these four pedals, and how he modded them while building the PedalStation 1.

“The combination TS + RAT is incredible and you can take a huge range of tones with these two, ranging from light saturation to high gain. Deep Blue is a clean and direct to-the-point delay that opens the door to creativity.”

“I modded it to increase the maximum volume of repetitions. The LPB-1 worked very well with the TS and the RAT and is great for giving that highlight at the time of solos.”

You can see and hear the PedalStation 1 in the Instagram posts below – what a great combination of old technologies and classic guitar effects! The whole pedal is true bypass and features an internal 9-Volt source. A P4 output can power other pedals, as well.

#PedalStation 🇺🇸: And it is finally ready! This is a project that I have been thinking about for over 4 years, but only now it has been materialized 👽 Another one for the video game pedals team, along with the GameBoy pedal and the Nintendo 64 pedal (that you can check here in the photos). As I really like video games and building pedals, I had the idea of mounting an “analog multi-effect” inside the shell of a PlayStation Fat, containing the main effects that I use when I'm going to rehearse. I thought about the combination of a drive, a distortion, a booster and a delay; the choices were: – Ibanez TubeScreamer 808 with clipping mod, offering 3 distinct tones (silicon / bypass / red LEDs); – ProCo RAT also with clipping mod (silicon / bypass / red LEDs); – Mad Professor Deep Blue Delay; – Electro Harmonix LPB-1. I spent the weekend testing and it was exactly as I expected. The combination TS + RAT is incredible and you can take a huge range of tones with these two, ranging from light saturation to high gain. Deep Blue is a clean and direct to the point delay that opens the door to creativity. I modded it to increase the maximum volume of repetitions. The LPB-1 worked very well with the TS and the RAT and is great for giving that highlight at the time of solos. PedalStation 1 is TrueBypass and features an internal 9V source + a P4 output to power other pedals. I also placed a metal handle on the back of the housing for easy transportation. Everything 100% handmade… the internal modification of the housing, the drilling, the making of the circuits of the pedals and the wiring of the project. Anyway, I was very happy with the result and took several pictures of the construction. Check it out! Hope you like it ☺️ So, what you think?

🇺🇸: A lot of people asked me to record a video showing the #PedalStation in action. Okay! But don't expect any mega production, haha. The demo starts at 6 minutes, before I talk a little about the project and answer some general questions. In BR-Portuguese. Sorry. FB LINK IS IN MY BIO 🇧🇷: Muita gente pediu pra gravar um vídeo mostrando o PedalStation em ação. Tá aí! Mas não esperem uma mega produção, haha. A Demo começa aos 6 minutos, antes eu conto um pouco do pedal e tiro algumas dúvidas gerais.
