William Mathewson Devices' pedals (WMD) are designed and crafted based on a few specific principles.

WMD hates digital modeling. Digital modeling pedals and amps suck the life from your playing. Tone, depth, feel and response become muddy and bland when sound is "processed". WMD pedals are entirely analog. The difference is in the way they feel when you play through one. The Geiger Counter uses digital technology defects in an analog way as a destructive effect.

Depth and tone. Tone is king, but it's also subjective, which is why WMD pedals provide incredible tonal variety. WMD have sculpted our filter stages and preamps to provide killer yet versatile tone. To connect you to the tone, the upmost of depth and responsiveness is designed into WMD pedals. Responsiveness yields intuitive and dramatic performance possibilities.

Control. WMD pedals have knobs that actually do stuff, and more of them. Plus, they provide a bigger range of control. WMD understand that tone is subjective, and different players want different things. WMD design the controls to go further, giving the player the freedom to experiment, even if our pedals end up making some funny noises at some settings.

Nontraditional Features. WMD pedals are designed to inspire creativity, WMD include features that allow the pedal to be used in strange ways. All of our pedals have key inputs for fruitful experimentation

Quality. WMD scrutinize over every little detail from design to production. WMD uses only the very best and most musical components. 1% film resistors, polypropelene caps, and long life pots and switches. WMD uses heavy duty die cast aluminum enclosures, powder coated and baked at 400° giving them an indestructable and beautiful finish to withstand the rigors of the road.

** Of special note, William was given the title of honourary Canadian at the NAMM show long ago.  A title he earned and well deserved.  He is a really good dude!
