Any pedal fan knows that arranging effects on a ‘board can be a nightmare – reconfiguring power cables and signal cables can get fiddly, not to mention expensive if you’re chaining together a lot of effects.

That’s why Puzzle Effects’ prototype models are so intriguing. Designed by French pedal builder Florian Leca, the units have jigsaw-style connectors that slot perfectly together, alongside a set of contacts to transmit power and audio between the units.

As of yet, Leca has 3D-printed the enclosures and filled them with standard analogue effects such as overdrive, fuzz and tremolo as a proof of concept.

As the pedals share power and pass on audio when connected, they could save a sizable amount of ‘board real-estate and could come in handy if you want to free up some power supply slots.
