We make gear we love

The Story

MOD Devices' founder, Gianfranco Ceccolini had a dream: having a multi-effects pedal that would never run out of effects, did not need a computer to be brought on the stage and could withstand the scrutiny of audiophiles everywhere. He set out to design a digital pedal that would provide more creative freedom and be more practical for live playing.

With the help of free software developers, the MOD ecosystem came to life, combining analog-digital hybrid hardware, an intuitive graphical interface, a Plugin Store and the Pedalboard sharing platform. After an initial product launch in Brazil that led to a successful Kickstarter campaign for the MOD Duo in 2014, MOD Devices is now based in Germany and has assembled an experienced and talented international team.
