Many Cleveland Music Co. effect pedals are small batch clones of timeless classics that fetch silly prices on the used market. But the lower price isn’t the only differentiator, because our versions are usually souped-up with additional features for more tonal options. We use new, high-quality electronic components, and we design and use our own PCBs. Our pedals are housed in industry-standard size aluminum enclosures featuring brand name jacks, switches, and knobs so they can stand up to the rigors of the road. Custom orders for clones of that hard-to-find or stupid-expensive vintage pedal you’re after are welcome!
Cleveland Music Co. amps are built from the tried-and-true designs and schematics of the golden age of low-wattage combo amps and heads. From “Tweed” to “Brownface” to early “Blackface” classics, we hand-wire our amps in small batches, and house the chassis in handmade cabinets with classic coverings. To complement our heads and the gear you already have, we also make extension speaker cabs in very limited numbers. We welcome custom orders for amplifiers or speaker cabs.
Handmade electric instruments in extremely limited quantities, made from raw materials—these are not “Partscasters”. We source reclaimed wood whenever possible and specialize in the most beloved body shapes and configurations ever manufactured. We only use high-quality hardware and electronics from boutique and major manufacturers. Because the environment is important to us, we try to avoid solvents and high VOC compounds and prefer natural oils or poly-based finishes. Cleveland Music Co. guitars are a labor of love; each year, only a handful are produced and those are mostly custom orders. But occasionally, you might find a one-of-a-kind instrument for sale in our online store.
