At Throne Room Pedals we have a commitment to our customers to bring the highest quality pedals we can possibly build into your hands at a price that is affordable for everyone. Our intention is to pass savings along to our customers, while never sacrificing the quality standards our company was founded upon. When we think of the term “boutique” or “hand-built”, the first word that comes to mind is “expensive”. We want to show that hand-built pedals and gear don’t have to be expensive and unaffordable, but they can still be some of the highest quality gear you can get your hands on.
Today we’re happy to announce that, effective immediately, we’re lowering the prices on most of our hand-built effects pedals. Our pedals previously at the price point of $179 are now $159, and other pedals have similar adjustments. Our Throne Room Tap Tempo Tremolo has gone from $249 to $219. As we make these adjustments, we want to make it clear that we have had zero sacrifice in our quality. Our product assembly is not outsourced and we are not using lower quality parts. Our pedals are still built by hand in the USA and, in fact, we have increased the parts and construction quality since we began. We also now have every part of our effects built right here in Bellingham, WA – everything from the enclosure drilling, powder coating, and labeling to the final hand-wired assembly. Even as we lower prices to make gear more affordable, we have a constant obsession to find higher quality parts and increasingly better ways to build our products. Our pedals now also feature clearer and more durable labeling that is sure to last for years to come.
We can make these price adjustments by lowering our manufacturing costs – not by sacrifice of quality, but by increasing speed and efficiency while still increasing quality – while also benefiting from increased economies of scale as we expand our manufacturing operations.
Thanks for being such great customers and even better friends! We renew our commitment to serving you first, and we’re excited to launch some new products over the next several months. As always, if you ever have any questions, comments or concerns or just want to chat gear, contact us at your earliest convenience and we’ll be happy to assist you. We read every email and do our best to respond in a timely manner.
