A companion book to Stompbox: 100 Pedals of the World’s Greatest Guitarists
Originally created to expand the sound of the electric guitar, stompboxes have become collectible, highly-fetishized objets d’art, often prized as much for their looks, quirks and history as for their sonic properties.
Photographer Eilon Paz and writer/editor Dan Epstein—the team behind Stompbox: 100 Pedals of the World’s Greatest Guitarists—have scoured the globe in search of some of the rarest, weirdest and most iconic stompboxes in existence. Vintage & Rarities: 333 Cool, Crazy and Hard to Find Guitar Pedals features lustrous, exquisitely-detailed photographs of primitive fuzzboxes, one-off prototypes, whimsical boutique creations and elaborate multi-effects units—many of which have never been seen before, even by hardcore collectors.
Vintage & Rarities also features profiles of 25 pedal collectors from around the world—including legendary musicians Adrian Belew, Henry Kaiser and David Torn, Beastie Boys producer Mario Caldato Jr., and celebrated pedal builders Oliver Ackermann (Death By Audio), Mike Piera (Analog Man) and Josh Scott(JHS)—all of whom share their personal tales of stompbox addiction, while offering additional insight into these fascinating devices.
