About Manufacturer

The Philosophy:
We want to build products with no compromises. We want to push the limits of technology in music. We want to redefine what is possible with music gear. We want to use exceptionally great components and ridiculously powerful processors. We want to make gear that sounds better than anything you've ever heard. We want to make our customers happy. We want you to be inspired to create amazing music.

The People:
We're a small company and we'd like to stay that way. We do this because we want to create gear that is fun to design and fun to play. We want to experiment and try new things. We don't want to work for the man. We don't like authority. We don't want to grow up. We want to work hard and have fun doing it.

The History:
Damage Control was founded in 2004 with the release of our line of tube-driven effects pedals, which earned critical acclaim and became favorites among guitarists across the globe. In 2009 we teamed up with Strymon to begin co-developing products, and the rest is history.
