RPS Effects is a brand of original, hand-built pedals, based in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
Although the brand officially launched in 2018, founder Ryan Sarver has been building pedals since 2009. Our goal is to produce high quality instruments that can be picked up and played by anyone, while providing nuanced and deep possibilities that reward exploration. So whether you count yourself among the sonically adventurous, or are just looking for a solid piece of gear, you've come to the right place!
We use only the highest quality components, and test our products to make sure that they’ll be reliable under any condition, even at extreme temperatures. Which means whether you're using them at the hottest summer festival or the coldest Siberian gig, you can rest easy.
Musical electronics live in a world where art and science collide. A technical foundation is important, but really it’s just a jumping off point for finding something that actually sounds exciting and feels good to play. We have the patience and experience to make sure a design is rock-solid from an engineering point-of-view, while never forgetting the fact that we're designing a musical instrument – it needs to inspire.
