A LONG TIME AGO ON A CONCERT STAGE FAR FAR AWAY...
The Beings at Interstellar live by one philosophy: Produce revolutionary, high quality & long lasting guitar effects pedals that open the door to a new level of musical artistry for everyone.
It all began when studio & touring musician Eric Bice noticed made an observation while out on the road playing at the infamous Red Rocks Amphitheater. Numerous professional & hobby guitar players all loved their guitar fx pedals like they were their children. Eric tapped his long time friend & fellow musician Sam Hindmarsh to help in creating out of this world guitar tone that was attainable for everyone, not just those with diamond hands.
Utilizing their years of cumulative music industry experience and relationships, they spent the better part of 2 years leveraging every resource to build & test numerous pedal component combinations and ultimately arrive at the promised land: an affordable pedal that adds a cosmic boost of interstellar guitar tone. Interstellar Audio Machines was born.
Since then we have been spreading the word and connecting with guitar players and enthusiasts all over the world! Truly we are loving every minute of this and can't wait to release our next interstellar fx pedals for you all. Stay tuned as the best is yet to come!
