Red Witch are a pedal company based out of New Zealand who produce pedals for the working musician, and aim to fill gaps in tone that Red Witch owner Ben Fulton has identified over his 25 years of playing, recording and touring as a guitarist.
By their own admission, Red Witch aim to "inspire the player - sonically and visually" and they're certainly making their mark. Intuitive pedal designs like the Xenia and Omnia, with a single knob on the side of the pedal to reduce risk of it being bumped mid-set, or the Fuzz God IV with it's DIP switches to carefully craft and shape your tone, they're making waves.
The company was started by Ben in 2003. Ben has been an international touring artist and an active member of the New Zealand music scene for more than a quarter of a century. His obsession, not an 'unhealthy obsession' in his words, with Jimmy Page and his tones throughout the 60s and 70s have led to a growing range of fuzzy, driven pedals design to break through the mould of modern, contemporary sounds and re-introduce us all to germanium transistors, warbling modulation and one-knob fuzz machines.
