As a teenager, Bob Weil taught himself how to build
stompboxes by disassembling off-the-rack pedals and adding
the features he wanted. Before long, he was coming up with his
own designs and taking them to industry trade shows. Then he
enlisted the help of DIY pedal guru R.G. Keen, and the two came
up with their now-famous line of stompboxes that fall
somewhere between boutique and mainstream.
