Hello everybody, 
a few words to begin.

After more than twenty years of rehearsals and gigs as a professional musician and pedal enthusiast, I decided to develop my own line of guitars and bass effects.

A line that could fulfill all the needs I have gained over the years and that could hopefully meet the needs of other musicians as well.

Having graduated as an Electronic Engineer in 1996 the learning curve was quick and soon I had in my hands good sounding prototypes.

My first goal was to create pedals that could deliver maximum dynamics.

Many times, on big and small stages, I had to face the fact that the rhythm section could easily overpower the guitar player.

Even when I used bigger amp heads delivering higher headroom, the weak link was always the limiting that occurs in almost all of the pedals available on the market: playing harder often equals smaller sound.

In order to resolve this problem I have hardly worked to find a solution for eliminating or limiting the typical heavy compression of overdrives and distortion boxes (i.e. clipping diodes).

Once the basic circuit was completely satisfying, I began to select the components based on their sound quality and that took a very long time because I found incredibly huge sonic differentiations between different brands and between different materials used to build the same type of component.

NGR pedals do not sport a buffered switch, I decided to make them all mechanically true bypassed. This because I am not particularly fond of modern buffers, which I find almost always too sterile sounding and not truly representative of what I intend as a good guitar sound.

They all feature a true analog discrete circuitry and employ the best quality components available and can be powered by a standard 9VDC power supply with negative ground and a 2.1 mm center pin DC jack (Boss type).

All of my pedals have been tested through my amp collection, namely a 1972 50W Marshall head and matching cabinet, a 1969 Fender Super Reverb, a 1972 Fender Princeton Reverb, a 1965 Vox AC50 with matching 1x18” speaker cabinet and a 1972 Hiwatt DR103 head, in order to analyze their behaviour in different environments.

Of course NGR Pedals sound their best if used with a well pushed tube amp in order to emphasize the amp characteristics.
All of the pedals are handmade and hand painted by me, with great love and care. One by one.

I’d like to give a special thanks to my friend Piero Quadri, co-owner with Edoardo Fradeani and Carlo Baldi of the musical instruments shop Epica Music Center (
After trying one of the first prototype pedal I made, Piero enthusiastically encouraged me to keep on producing more pieces.
It can be said that NGR pedals were born in that moment, and Epica has been a great supporter of my products since the very first day.
