Red Witch’s latest pedal project involves 54 uniquely finished overdrive pedals that pay homage to the 54 lines of Samuel Taylor Coleridge’s poem, Kubla Khan: or, A Vision in a Dream: A Fragment.
Each Nonpareil overdrive features a unique iteration of a dual germanium/FET circuit for vast drive flexibility. The collection was hand-built by Red Witch head honcho Ben Fulton, who has hand-signed and numbered each pedal.
According to Fulton, the point of the series is to offer players a chance to own a completely unique pedal: “Something that nobody else has. Something special. Something we can treasure”
In the control section are four knobs, two of which set the input and gain levels of the first and second gain stages respectively. The other two adjust the presence and master volume of the effect.
The unique pieces of art which adorn each pedal were created by New Zealand artist Rachael Gannaway, and correspond with each line of the poem.

If you’re planning on picking up one of these unique overdrives, be sure to do so quickly. They go for $449 apiece now, but as collectable things are, it’s expected these will rise in value on the second-hand market.
