Collision Devices has unveiled the Ranch, an eco-friendly drive, dynamic tremolo and boost pedal.
The eco-minded pedal is constructed of medium-density walnut and covered with a slice of Pinatex, a leather-like pineapple leaf fiber that is also an agricultural waste product.
Each pedal is then polished with linseed oil that is cold-pressed in France and has not been chemically treated.
As for Ranch’s functioning?
There are three knobs at the top of the face – Dust (drive), Bright and Strength (volume) – that serve as the Drive controls.
The tremolo settings, meanwhile, are located inside the pedal and can be set with a screwdriver.
A depth setting controls the presence of the tremolo, while sensitivity handles the attack response.
Finally, the Boost volume is set with a trimmer inside the pedal.
Continuing the eco theme, each pedal is shipped in a recycled cardboard box wrapped with linseed string, and the unit is protected in the package by locally-crushed forest wood fragments. Collision suggests using the extra fragments as mulching for plants or gardens.
The Ranch is available for $371.94, with pre-orders shipping on July 20. The first 25 pedals are also shipped with a handmade Pinatex handbag.
