Description & Specs

From Collision Devices:

It is our modern vision of a Ranch.

We have built this pedal to be very dependant on the dynamic and on your playing.

We have tried to find some materials alternatives in the aim to be conscient of our ecological impact.

This pedal is made of noble materials. The stompbox is manufactured in US Walnut which grows up in Europe to reduce carbon footprint.The US walnut is very interesting first for its tint composed of black grain. It offers a superb aspect once it is nourished. Its medium density allows an easy machining while staying very resistant.

To create some relief and work with textures and colors, it is covered by a Pinatex slice. To remind leather, but without hurting animals. The Pinatex is made with pineapple leaf fibre. It is an agricultural waste product.

For ecological reasons, each pedal is polished with not chemical treated linseed oil. Cold pressed here in France.

Linseed oil allows to protect the wood. We advise you to pass an extra oil layer each year to preserve your pedal for a long long time. We provide a little can of wax to better protect The Ranch and to make it sparkle. It is made by us in our workshop with beeswax and linseed oil. The beeswax comes from a local beekeeper. We also provide a little pad to apply the wax. These pads are made by hand by the wonderful BCFQ here in Angers. Each pad is GOTS certified (ecology and social responsibility).

Each pedal is shipped in a recycled cardboard box to go on this ecological way. Wrapped with linseed string. The Ranch is protected in the package by forest wood fragments. We wanted to highlight the natural products like wood and our local partner Valdéfis. The wood fragments come from a collect done in our country and are locally crushed. It is the first time that this packaging is used. The little extra is that you can use the wood fragments as mulching for your plants or your garden.

The Drive controls are the 3 on the top of The Ranch.
  • Dust : It’s the drive knob. Nothing to add here. From a very smooth drive to a huge distortion. Very sensitive from your playing and the type of pickup and amplifier you use.
  • Bright : This control adds some high mids and treble to your signal. Without cutting the bass. Here to break through the mix.
  • Strength : Volume knob. Allows you to reduce the volume from the drive or to increase it.

Tremolo settings are inside the pedal. Set them with a screwdriver.

It’s a Dynamic Tremolo. The more you attack your strings, the faster it oscillates.
  • Depth : Controls the presence of the tremolo.
  • Sensitivity : Turn it clockwise to make the tremolo more sensitive to your attack.
You can have a very sensitive tremolo but not that much present or a more gated tremolo with a lot of presence. Turn Depth control to the left and Sensitivity setting to the right to obtain the most present and sensitive tremolo.

The Boost volume is set with a trimmer inside the pedal. Pre set it before playing so that you just have to play it when you want your sound to be louder.

We're right off the CTA Brown Line 'Paulina' Stop Just North of Belmont and just West of Ashland.

We’re all musicians here at Chicago Music Exchange and we want you to love the gear you get from us. We understand that sometimes you get a piece of gear that doesn’t work out for you. That’s why we offer an easy return policy to take the stress out of purchasing from us.

If you decide you'd like to return an item, please contact your Sales Rep, chat us, or give us a call.

If you placed your order on Amazon or eBay, we advise issuing the return request from your account on the platform of purchase - our Customer Service team will process a refund upon receipt of the item(s).

Most new items may be returned within 30 days of delivery and most vintage & used items may be returned within 3 days of delivery for a full refund, exchange, or store credit. Please pack the product safely for the journey back to us. If the product was shipped for free, the charge will be deducted from refund, unless the reason for the return is outside normal circumstances.

Please contact us as soon as possible if your order was received incorrectly, damaged, or defective. Most times we will give you an RA number (Return Authorization). Why is that number important? This will allow us to speed up the process of the return.

We reserve the right to charge a restocking fee based on the return condition. Some items we just can’t take back for returns, due to a one time function like strings or drums heads and other times it’s not sanitary to do so with microphones or harmonicas. If you aren’t sure if what you bought falls into a category like this, call us (773) 525-7773!

We strive to get your return processed quickly. Most of the time we have it done within two business days. Funds going back to credit cards usually takes two to four business days. CME strives to make sure all customers are happy with their experience. It is our priority to provide great service along with great gear. We always want to be helpful, and open to your feedback.
