Small Grey Pedals is a very small, one dude operation based in Philadelphia, PA, run by me, Ryan McNeill. My interest in the inner workings of musical gear first started as a result of me and my bandmates having little to no money, coupled with a basement full of broken or wonked up gear.  However, I've since found it much more rewarding to design, tweak, and build things from scratch.  Not being a guitarist by trade (I'm a drummer actually) has allowed me to explore the world of effects without succumbing to pitfalls of tradition and superstition built up around some of the most famous units.  Each design is meticulously prototyped.  Each pedal is made to order.  Every single step of the process is done by hand, and with durability and sustainable practices in mind.
