NEW! The Alienist Voicing Boost


Thanks for stopping by. Use the categories to the left to check out the store.

Got a wah pedal that needs repair? I do that too. Go here for the details.

Use the sticky notes on the left to check out the different products available.

I build Area 51 products to a higher standard than most you'll find available today. In fact, many of the types of parts and techniques that I use are typically only found in devices made 40+ years ago. Switchcraft chassis mount jacks (board mounted jacks commonly fail), audio-grade opamps, transistors, resistors and capacitors, hand-wound wah inductors....all these things may not matter to some - but they matter to me. My goal is, and always has been to provide the BEST possible bang for your buck. Much of the gear available on the market today is not even repairable. Yeah, they may be a little cheaper to buy, but not when you have to buy ANOTHER a year from now. Hey - maybe I'm a little naive, and maybe that's just how things are done in 2017. But that's not the way I do things. Not now - not ever. Am I making a killing? Haha...no. But I AM making things up to a standard that wasn't even common in the 1960s. And I'm damn proud of it.

Lead times: Because each pedal is handcrafted by me for you, there's usually a wait time involved. The typical is 1-2 months. If you don't want to wait - be sure to check my dealers (link to the left), they may have the item you want in their stock.
