SolidGoldFX effects pedals

Established in 2006, SolidGoldFX is located in Montreal, Quebec, Canada and specializes in the development and manufacturing of high quality, handmade effects. We believe in a no-nonsense approach to design that is both innovative and intuitive, giving our products a fresh yet familiar feel. Carefully constructed to exacting standards using only select full size components, each pedal we produce is an instrument in and of itself, built to enhance tone and inspire creativity. Our passion for sound and continued commitment to excellence separate our pedals from the pack. More than just the sum of their parts, SGFX pedals are worth their weight in gold.

SolidGoldFX Stutter-lite

The Stutter-lite is designed to recreate the soft flutter and bubbling pulse of vintage bias modulated, tube amp style trem. The Stutter-lite is built around an all analog, discrete circuit and JFET audio path, offering a rich and complex sweep that ranges from subtle and subdued to up front and assertive. A simple streamlined control set complete with a pulsing LED makes the Stutter-lite a breeze to dial in, while its retro cream graphics and frosted winter green enclosure give it just the right amount of old school class. If simple lush set it and forget trem is your thing, the Stutter-lite is sure to please.
