Matthews Effects is a Christian owned and operated effect pedal company. Grown from humble beginnings out of Eastern Washington, Matthews Effects has made a name for itself by innovating the effect pedal market with designs that challenge the status quo of the pedal industry. Rick started by building switches as he tried to learn more and more about circuits and what made them tick. He was hired and then mentored by Keith Vondurhulls of buildyourownclone.com which set him on the path to build his own circuits. Through approaching designing from a different perspective Rick has been able to design circuits and pedal layouts that are unique and inspiring. They awaken a call to be creative when you use them.
