Information: 

BMF Effects is a hand made effects pedals company founded in 2005 in Southern California by Scott Kiraly. All BMF Effects pedals feature custom made steel enclosures, industrial grade powder coating and silk screening as well as true bypass switching and DC jacks.

Scott revealed the history of BMF Effects in an interview with Stomp That Box:

"I had been tinkering with stuff for quite some time and the more I did it the more I wanted to learn. Selling pedals wasn’t the first thing that came to mind, it just kind of happened. I started off building effect pedals in my home and still work out of my home. Building my first pedal was not really to hard. Actually things went very well until I tried to tackle a Fuzz Face for the first time, that threw me for a loop as far as getting to sound right and/or how I thought it should. I have a friend that works in a local store and he was a big help in getting the ball rolling. From there it was word of mouth, getting on the forums…things along those lines.

Marc Ford and Jeff Massey from The Steepwater Band play on my pedals. Andrew DeRoberts, a very talented player who has done work with the Jonas Brothers and American Idol winner Kris Allen. I’ve heard from people that “so and so bought one of your pedals” but Marc, Jeff and Andrew are guys that I have direct contact with. One of the cool things about doing what I do is that I get to hear from independent and locals bands…guys who are really talented but that I don’t know that I would have heard about."
