About Us

Take me directly to Range of services

After years of playing guitar, searching through, purchasing and selling stacks of guitar effects, Austin at Mercy Seat Effects decided to jump in the exciting world of boutique effects and build his own. With a simple goal, "to create effects pedals that inspire," Mercy Seat Effects set out to craft effects that not only sounded great, but oozed that DIY attitude in appearance as well.

That’s why EVERY Mercy Seat Effects pedal is made by hand, from the powdercoated enclosure, handpopulated and handwired circuits, right down to the last dab of paint on the custom painted enclosure.  Since every pedal is made with high quality parts including Alpha pots,  Neutrik jacks, Panasonic and WIMA caps, 1% tolerance resistors and even USA made Davies knobs you can be assured that the tone passing into each Mercy Seat Effects pedal will be treated with dignity and respect.

The Tree of Life overdrive, a favorite of professional touring musician Chris Wrate (Colbie Caillat) is called "An impressive overdrive with vast tone shaping options," by

Mercy Seat Effects is located in a sleepy little town in Southwest Germany, 15 minutes from the Swiss border.
