UPDATE (15/3): The Teisco pedals are now available, with free shipping in the continental US. Check out teisco.com for the details.
Teisco has returned to the fray with three exciting pedals: the Teisco Delay, Teisco Fuzz and Teisco Boost. These stompboxes feature boutique components and come at an affordable price point. Here’s a closer look:
This analogue delay pedal is designed to produce dark and warm repeats, as well as oscillating madness. It comes with up to 600ms of delay time and a rich Modulation section that can be tweaked for an array of different sounds. Additionally, you can hook up the pedal to dry/wet rigs – via a Direct Out jack – for unique tones.
Retails at $149.
The Teisco Boost can function as a tone-enhancing buffer or be used to push both drive pedals and amps. It features a FET design that caters for softer and more organic clipping. You can also shape the boost’s character via a voltage switch and an EQ profile switch. The former has a 24-volt option that provides you with extra headroom, while the latter lends extra tweakability.

This pedal is geared towards a range of hairy tones, including searing leads, chunky textures, and synth-like overtones. Its key feature is a classic silicon fuzz circuit that comes with a switchable upper octave. According to Teisco, the circuit is inspired by a “furry 70s predecessor”.
Retails at $129.
