SUGARCUBE | ALEXANDER PEDALS

Handmade pedals with a positive effect.

Founded by seasoned effects designer Matthew Farrow, Alexander Pedals handcrafts exciting effects and accessories in the small town of Garner, North Carolina. Intended to be “instantly familiar yet completely unique,” the brand’s builds are some of the most satisfying and original on the market, but as their architect would have it, they affect much more than just your tone.

Named for Farrow’s late brother Alex who passed away from neuroblastoma (a form of cancer) in 1987, Alexander Pedals’ mission goes beyond providing players with mold-breaking effects. AP actively participates in the fight against childhood cancer by donating a portion of the profits from every pedal to charity, encouraging even those who’ve bought one second-hand to join in the effort.

But is that why you should buy an Alexander Pedals? No. It’s one reason, and it’s certainly enough on its own, but the benefits of AP’s effects speak lovingly––and loudly––for themselves.

Alexander Pedals Sugarcube Stereo Chorus

Sugarcube Stereo Chorus

AP’s newest pedal, the Sugarcube Stereo Chorus, Vibrato, Rotary, serves up the sweetness of your favorite choruses, laying on a scoop of classic ‘80s vibes with an optional sprinkle of rotary or vibrato action. Top it some pitch-shifting, MIDI connectivity, and four easily accessible parameters with alternate functions, and you’ve got a loaded stompbox sundae, cherry and all.

Alexander Pedals Superball Pitch Shifter/Delay

Superball Pitch Shifter/Delay

Put some bounce in your board with Superball, an utterly bonkers pitch shifter/digital delay pedal that uses a master LFO to modulate all the delay parameters simultaneously. Sculpt the top or bottom of an LFO waveform and sync it tap tempo, or let it run free. For some real fun, try Bounce mode. Set the wave, the rate, and how many times you want the effect to bounce. The modulation decreases in intensity with each bounce, just like a Superball. 

Alexander Pedals Super Neo-Matic Delay Modulator

Super Neo-Matic Delay

Limited to just 100 units, the Alexander Pedals Super Neo-Matic Delay Modulator replicates the sounds of the legendary Pefftronics Randomatic. When in vintage mode, the Super Neo-Matic acts as a spot-on sonic likeness, mimicking the original pedal’s distinctive 8-bit codec. But unlike the Randomatic, you don’t have to pay four-figure prices to get it. And when you switch the mode to Modern, you get the same functionality, but with expanded, 24-bit, ultra-high-fidelity processing for a more contemporary take.

The ‘68 Customs have become an extremely popular amp series for guitarists who love classic Fender sounds along with toneful modifications that resonate with today’s players.

The ’68 Customs have become an extremely popular amp series for guitarists who love classic Fender sounds along with toneful modifications that resonate with today’s players. 

At just 5 watts, the original Vibro Champ was famous for classic Fender tremolo, tube sparkle and killer grind at a reasonable level. The ’68 Custom Vibro Champ Reverb improves on this classic amp by adding hall-emulating DSP reverb and using a larger 10” speaker for increased low end. These additions make this little wonder perfect for rehearsal, home recording and even small gigs.

Alexander Sugarcube Stereo Chorus, Vibrato, Rotary Pedal

$199.99
Some like their chorus tones toothache sweet. Others just want a hint of syrupy swirl. And no matter where you fall on that spectrum, Sugarcube delivers. 

We captured the essence of all our favourite chorus pedals from the 80s, added in a dash of rotary whirl and some crystallized pitch-shifting for good measure — and then wrapped it all up in a pedalboard-friendly package.

Of course, you get the MIDI, preset and expression pedal support you’ve come to expect from Alexander Pedals, but look — sugar addiction is real. Consider this your only warning.

From Alexander Pedals:

From Alexander Pedals:

It was the best of times, it was the worst of times.  Back in the go-go ‘90s, a band of mad scientists emerged from a lab in the wilds of Iowa with a strange pedal that altered the very fabric of time and space.  This pedal found its way into the hearts and minds of a select few - the dreamers and the music makers, the wild and free.

But those pedals weren’t made to last.  As the years have passed, their fragile circuitry has begun to fail, until one day they will be only a memory.  Wise grandfathers will tell the children tales of the strange black pedal from the west, and that will be the end of the story.

Or will it?

Alexander Pedals designer Matthew Farrow decided to recreate the magic using modern DSP technology and high-quality construction techniques.  All the strange sounds of the original lurk within the Super Neo-Matic, along with some fun new surprises.  The original pedals may be slowly fading, but your journey has just begun.
