Welcome to ClinchFX!

Our goal is to design and build the best hand assembled analog effects available.  Our first product was a guitar effect, the Blue Classic boost / overdrive pedal.

Our EP series of pedals has been incredibly successful. Although we designed a very quiet charge pump power supply for our EP-PRE, I chose to stick with the original 1970s schematic for the preamp itself, because any change to the original circuit takes something away from the rich and spacious tone of the original circuit.  Even in our EP+, the first stage is identical to the EP-PRE, and the second stage is pure transparent boost that doesn’t compromise “that” tone.  The EP-PRE, EP+ EP+ Custom and Pico-PRE will remain in our lineup.

It’s now time for us to return to our original designs.  The first of these is the Burnish Boost, and we have more designs on the way.

We have plans to install a shopping cart here on our website. Until then, if you wish to enquire about buying a pedal, please go to our Contact Us page and send us a message.

ClinchFX has a dealer in Belgium.

Gosia Guitars is stocking ClinchFX EP-PRE, EP+, EP+ Custom and is the first in the world to stock our Burnish Boost.

We suggest that customers in Europe contact Gosia Guitars for ClinchFX pedals.
