What It Is.

Balls Effects produces 100% handmade effects and amplifiers for guitar and bass and whatever else you think sounds wicked running through them. My whole mode of attack is to keep things simple.  All of the best sounds ever committed to record were made using the most basic effects and amps, which were all finely tuned old-school machines and sounded fantastic.  So why fuck it up?  Balls units are built with that in mind and try to capture as much of the old sonic charm as possible, while still holding to what is practical and necessary in the modern world.  Some of what is offered are representations of the old classics with a few modern twists and turns.  Others provide some more ground-up circuits tuned to my ear to provide what I think the world is missing

Everything is made entirely by hand, by yours truly, in Brooklyn, NY.    In my builds you’ll find no PCB-mounted pots, jacks or switches that weaken the reliability of the product.  Everything is hard mounted and wired for maximum quality in every build.

Who The Hell.

Balls originates from a long running nickname, Dr. Tony Balls.  I’ve had a gear-obsession for longer than I care to remember and ive been tinkering and building ever since.  I’ve been building pedals, amplifiers, and assorted electronics for years on end and I do builds for touring musicians, studios, and local, national and international customers, alike.
