Our Cannonball™ pedals are the legacy of our original Wave Cannon™ stompboxes. Each is a work of art, with the enclosure custom painted by a noteworthy artist and then specially wired by hand in our shop.
Each begins with the original version of our Wave Cannon® distortion circuit, but we put a couple special tweaks inside to make each pedal unlike any other. Then we load the Havoc switch, but this time we put it on a rugged latched or momentary footswitch that you can activate with your foot. Other mods may include a voltage sag for cool, “broken” sounds or a control to fine-tune the amount of feedback that Havoc will create. Most Cannonballs made since 2014 have a fifth mystery knob with one of those two functions.
While this is by no means the complete collection of custom Cannonballs we’ve made, we encourage you to scroll through the images.

Each Cannonball™ also includes the following extra treat: *An invitation to the original owner of the pedal to join us for a drink at one of our favorite watering holes on our dime. should they ever have occasion to visit Columbia, SC. The bearer of this certificate is expected to have a conversation topic; should they be unable to afford one, a conversation topic WILL BE ASSIGNED TO THEM.
