So… what’s the deal with this Daft Paragon thing? Well that’s a new venture of mine. My loooong term goal is to own my own guitar store. Since I’m not crazy enough to just throw every penny I have into a store and hope it works out, I’m starting small. The first step in this plan is a site dedicated to boutique effects pedals for guitar. At first I’m carrying awesome brands like Catalinbread and Keeler Designs. In the near future, expect similar brands to appear. I’m only interested in carrying hand-made pedals that are of amazing quality from very small companies. Part of that is because I’m a snob and am not interested in the mainstream brands, the other part is it’s just a smart business move to carry the stuff that you can’t get everywhere else. As the store develops, I plan to add extensive demo videos, tons of reviews and even a semi-regular effects focused talk show. Whenever I’m done working for other people, I really want this to be a career – so I’m trying to create a unique and exceptional customer experience. Since I don’t have a storefront to demo these pedals, expect as much information as possible to help you decide what is right for you. And if there’s anything you want to know, see, or hear about one of these boutique effects pedals, just let me know and I’ll do whatever I can to comply.
