VINTAGE ANALOGUE GUITAR EFFECTS PEDALS

Rhodium Electronics certifies every handmade built individually, keeping records of the corresponding effects serial number and year of manufacture, also keeping protection of these details under a company registration book. 

Offering lifetime warranty and technical support for all Rhodium Electronics effects pedals. Our stock of vintage parts are all brand new NOS (New Old Stock) electronics components. The main goals of the Rhodium Electronics pedals are reducing SNR (signal to noise ratio) by means of PCB layout, selection of audio grade electronics and wiring configuration whilst simultaneously improving dynamic response, bandwidth and output level of the circuits, all designed to Hi-Fi standard.

STANDARD PEDAL SERIES

ARB64 DANDY TREBLE-BOOST VER2

RHODIUM ELECTRONICS TREBLE BOOSTER ARB64

Dandy Boost ARB64 silicon transistor treble booster based on the 1964 Range-Master, with a different approach to the late '70s SRV guitar tones. A noiseless mini pedal design featuring more predictable dynamics and control; a contemporary silicon treble booster built with a selection of vintage electronics.

ARF66 MKII REV. 5 FUZZ

RHODIUM ELECTRONICS FUZZ MKII Rev.5 Germanium

ARF66 Germanium Fuzz is a take on the classic Fuzz-Face circuit, modified following different concepts and variants of the original design. Built in small runs in order to to standardise every small batch to have the same features of the germanium transistor family selected from our stock.

ARA67 SAM ASTRO DRIVE-FUZZ

RHODIUM ELECTRONICS ASTRO-TONE 2N3566

ARA67 Astro-Tone is a version of the 1967 silicon fuzz Sam-Ash circuit, popularised by Leslie West and Tommy Bolin. This design follows a vintage specification as per original circuit, with a selection of audio grade electronics and a selected pair of mid seventies silicon 2N3566 transistors. 

ARF 68 MKIII/IV FUZZ MKIV .3

RHODIUM ELECTRONICS TONIBENDER LONDON FUZZ

The new ARF68 (following the previous ARF-72 fuzz series) is a take on the classic Tone-Bender MKIII with added mods, allowing it to leak bass frequency signals from the volume control and clean-up the guitar signal well from single pickups; it includes an internal pre-set trimmer to dial the required output gain. Changes in the trimmer setting alter the final EQ of the pedal so it's a very experimental control which can take you to the MKI and F-1 Maestro Fuzz Tone territories and beyond. 

ARO70W GRANDTONE

RHODIUM ELECTRONICS  ONE TRANSISTOR FUZZ

ARO70W Fuzz is a single silicon transistor design - an early overdrive pedal that can re-voice your amplifiers, achieving a fuzzy distortion range. It performs better with Humbucker pickups at unitary gain. Classic '60s and '70s guitar sounds.  

ARF71 CAMDEN STONER

RHODIUM ELECTRONICS  ONE KNOB FUZZ

One Knob Fuzz take on the legendary Colorsound Wah Fuzz Swell — fuzz part of the circuit setup with two vintage silicon transistors, with the same early seventies family of transistors found in the original pedals. Audio grade capacitors and vintage true bypass setup. Noiseless. Click-less.

LIMITED CUSTOM SERIES

R-MASTER 1962 TREBLE BOOST

RHODIUM ELECTRONICS TREBLE BOOSTER MULLARD OC44 GLASS SPECS 1960s GB

Treble Booster R-Master 1962 Great Britain Mullard Germanium OC44. Built in Tanquelab PCB board and setting up Carling switches, Neutrik jacks and Alpha potentiometer. Vintage electronics parts according to the book of reference, based on Rangemaster Maestro Treble Booster, a stolen circuit from early Roger Mayer designs which dated from 1962.

GOLD TONIBENDER MKIII

RHODIUM ELECTRONICS 1968-1972 LONDON FUZZ

A modern take on the classic Tone-Bender, built in PCB with a selection of 80's germanium Eastern Europe equivalent to the very scarce... original 70's Mullard British family of ransistors. As a vintage circuit, like other germanium fuzz pedals, this circuit behaves differently in front of different amplifiers or playing with different guitars.

TANQUELAB - BOUTIQUE PEDAL SERIES

TANQUELAB DRIVESTORTION ODD-1

Drivestortion ODD-1 introduces a new configuration of the classic op-amp circuit layout, offering underdrive, boost, overdrive and distortion, setting up a classic passive tone and master volume controls.


TANQUELAB SINGLE COIL BOOSTER

Single Coil Pickups Booster is a vintage analogue electronics mid boost circuit for guitar. An Op-Amp amplifier circuit, improves the amplitude guitar signal from your guitar single pickups to the next amplification stage or effects pedal with a clean mids freq. boost.. 

TANQUELAB 3-WAYS GUITAR BUFFERED SPLITTER

3-Ways Guitar Buffered Splitter, a vintage analogue electronics circuit for guitar. An Op-Amp clean buffer circuit to split your guitar signal or preamp output into three different ways, adequate your guitar signal or preamp volume to the unity, gaining a consistent signal through long cables to the amplifier.

TANQUELAB FUZZ FUZZ FUZZ MULLARD AC128 RED DOT

TANQUELAB FUZZ FUZZ FUZZ MKI.5 AC128 setup with a selected pair of NOS Mullard AC128 germanium transistors, designed with an exclusive selection of NOS parts and other electronics components tough to audio grade and military standards.

BACKGROUND

THE LONDON INTERNATIONAL GUITAR SHOW 2022

Northern Guitar Shows

My name is Antonio Rubio and l am a fully qualified electronics engineer, gaining my bachelor degrees at Lancashire and Seville universities in 2006 and 2009. My understanding of electronics and passion for guitar and effects pedals have lead me to pursue and achieve new approaches to creating exciting all-analog circuits which deliver both the familiar sounds we all love as well as new circuits which offer a broader palate of tones.

 

After I moved to Central London from Spain, I finished my first clean boost tube preamp pedal and discovered the meaning of “warm” guitar sound. I continued training my ears, designing my own electronic circuits in the City, growing my workbench and stock of parts while modifying guitars, repairing old amplifiers and building effects pedals in the evenings after work and at weekends.

 

My ideal rig is a simple selection between clean boost, overdrive and fuzz pedals, together with some modulation pedals such as tremolo or analog delay - a maximum of three or four pedals in total. Normally, I play small tube combo amplifiers and I have found that impedance matching is an important factor to consider when playing with vintage pedals, particularly germanium fuzz pedals.  

 

The main goals of the Rhodium Electronics pedals are reducing SNR (signal to noise ratio) by means of PCB layout, selection of audio grade electronics and wiring configuration whilst simultaneously improving dynamic response, bandwidth and output level of the circuits, all designed to Hi-Fi standard.
