Mini-VUMPs back in stock!

I finally got myself a powder coating gun and an air compressor and I’m back in business! I’m constantly juggling machining the cases, soldering PCBs, building up sub-assemblies, and engraving, so there’s plenty of work in progress.

Analog VUMPs are undergoing a production sprint of eight right now.

Back in Mini-VUMP production!!

It took until the end of November 2023 for the critical part to be available at the suppliers. Thanks for all of your incredible patience this year. I’ve been offering them first to people on the waitlist, but expect to have extra stock (no waitlist) in early 2024. Until then, contact me at to get on the waitlist for a Mini-VUMP.

The Analog-VUMP pedals will be starting production again soon too. Waiting on those classy analog meters to get delivered!

VUMP Updates

Analog VUMPs got more attention this year, both the 1/4″ jack-only type, and the 1/4″ jack plus XLR jack type. These have been limited in production due to my time, which is scant, unfortunately!

The Mini-VUMP faces serious delay by non-availability of a critical component at every supplier I know of until at least December 2023!!! SO MANY of you want to buy one and I am truly sorry that it will be further delayed due to an out of stock (but apparently not out-of-demand!) part.

…… OH, have I even mentioned it yet? The Mini-VUMP is now upgraded to STEREO capability and comes in a new blue finish to make the engraving “pop”. Photos coming soon once I have a few prototypes finished up.

Sorry for the delays!!!

Folks, I mentioned that I moved across the country for an awesome new job at the beginning of the year. It’s been great, but super busy, so I haven’t had much time to devote to these guitar pedals, unfortunately. As of 6/3/23, I have a few Analog VUMPs ear-marked for customers, so I am turning some out, just more slowly than I’d like to.

I haven’t mentioned this until now, but I’m overhauling the digital Mini-VUMP to work with stereo inputs and pre-set calibration, and that turned out to be a major change (stereo jacks, more expensive 3PDT footswitch, more/larger parts, etc), and my first round of the PCB had some issues I haven’t had time to scope out yet. Once I get that figured out, it’ll be a 1.5 month delay to production of the first 40 units.

After those 40 are done I need to buy a powder paint gun to do the next batch. I was borrowing one from a friend previously.

Thanks for your patience! Many of you have told me you’ve been looking for something like this for 20-30 years, so I hope a few months more of waiting will be tolerable!

The Analog-VUMP has arrived!

Customers have been asking about an old-school analog voltage unit meter pedal. Well, it took me a few months, but here it is!! The Analog-VUMP!! Now XLR input/output, AND stereo or mono 1/4″ input/output! Beautiful backlit display is easy to read. Features slow-fast response, level scaling knob (calibration), and compatibility with XLR Phantom Power. Reserve one today!

Mini-VUMPs for 2022

Thank you all for making 2021 a strong year for the Mini-VUMP. Lots of happy customers! Lots of pedalboards equalized, lots of pickup heights adjusted, lots more awesome guitar music! Please don’t keep the Mini-VUMP a secret… pass the word on to your friends. More Mini-VUMPs are being handmade this week. I’ll be up to serial number 80 soon.
