Overdrive, delay, and reverb are cascaded in series, with true-bypass switching.

Los Angeles, CA (April 10, 2017) -- The BW-1 effects pedal, the first product by Biltworth, is the ultimate all-in-one tone solution. Overdrive, delay, and reverb effects are cascaded in series, with true-bypass switching offered between every circuit. Featuring nearly unlimited tonal possibilities, the BW-1 is ideal for players looking to significantly shrink their pedal board, take their tone on the road, or simply expand their sonic palette.

Whether you’re a psych rocker sending solos to outer space, a metal shredder kicking an amp into high gear, or a blues player looking to add some grit and depth, the BW-1 takes your sound where it needs to go.


  • Three effects, nine knobs, and four switches—control your tone with exacting precision.
  • True-bypass switching between individual effects, as well as a true-bypass master switch.
  • Our 7.38” x 4.7” enclosure saves valuable space, ideal for backpacks and other small bags.
  • One 9-volt DC input for all three effects, no daisy-chain required.
  • Every unit is assembled by hand in California.

Long before the BW-1 went into production, Biltworth enlisted the services of Doktor Ross Sewage of Impaled and Exhumed to design the graphics for the pedal. The BW-1 has since been making its way through underground music circles. Guitarist Sonny Reinhardt of Saviours and Necrot has taken his BW-1 on several tours across North America and Europe and guitarist Scott Hoffman used his unit on High Spirits’ recent tour of the United Kingdom.

The BW-1 is available for $299.99 - they can be purchased online at bilt-worth.com.

Bach’s BWV 995 Sarabande is a special piece of music. It’s sparse, delicate, and deceptively complex even though it looks simple on the page! There are some approaches, informed by Baroque performance practices, that will open your ears to discovering your own musicality within Bach’s music. The piece doesn’t require advanced right-hand classical guitar technique. You can play with a combination of pick and fingers, or fingerstyle. This lesson is not so much about technique, but about the subtle nuances that bring the written note to life. With a little knowledge of Baroque performance practice, you can lend your own interpretation to Bach’s masterpiece.
