One Control

One Control is a Japanese company founded in 2010 by Tomokaz “Kaz” Kawamura whose main focus is guitar pedal switchers. One Control switchers range from a one-channel true bypass looper all the way to a 10 channel programmable switcher with MIDI capabilities. With most loop switchers guitarists would have to use a separate power supply to power their pedals, but One Control has made the innovation of combining a multi-power supply and an effect loop switcher into one product with products like the Iguana and Xenagama, so pedal-boards can be less crowded and more efficient.

Wampler

Brian Wampler founded Wampler Pedals, Inc. in 2007 as a guitar effects pedal company. Wampler started out by modding existing pedals before making his own designs. Wampler was active in the online DIY pedal-building community and self-published a series of books on guitar pedal design that helped launch the careers of other boutique guitar pedal builders. The very earliest Wampler pedals were made in Brian's garage, before production was moved to a factory in Kentucky and circa 2019 Wampler effects were made and distributed by Boutique Amps Distribution in California.

EarthQuaker Devices

EarthQuaker Devices was founded in 2004 by Jamie Stillman in Kent, Ohio. Stillman was a musician who began designing effects pedals after repairing his broken overdrive pedal. The first EarthQuaker production model was the Hoof Fuzz, released in 2007. Up to that point EarthQuaker was a one-man enterprise but the success of the Hoof meant Stillman was able to hire employees and concentrate more on designing new effects. At this point Stillman was operating a 9-person effects factory from his basement in West Akron, Ohio - the range included the Hoof, Grand Orbiter, Disaster Transport, Hummingbird, and Ghost Echo pedals. They moved out of the basement in 2011 and then again in 2015 into a two story factory employing 53 people making over 40 effects products.
