About Neunaber Technology
Neunaber Technology designs and manufacturers effects pedals for the discerning musician.
We operate under the following principles:
- The best solutions are simple and elegant.
- While music is art, audio is a science that is understood. It is not black magic.
- Digital is not inherently bad. It is only a tool, like vacuum tubes or solid-state analog. It is how one uses the tool that makes the result sound good or bad.
How are we different?
Neunaber Technology is certainly not a mass-producer, but we don't see ourselves as boutique either. We strive to practice the best from each approach:
- We prefer to remain small and agile.
- We design for maximum value—using the best parts and practices, but
only when it results in a noticeable improvement in sound, appearance,
- We use modern design and assembly techniques, including double-sided PC boards and surface-mount components. Despite what others may claim, modern machine assembly techniques—when properly implemented—are far more reliable than hand-made.
- Whenever practical to do so, we use local suppliers. We work with local companies for PC board
fabrication, assembly, and enclosure drilling.
- We believe that making great products is the best marketing strategy, and we rely on happy customers to spread the word.
- We continually look for new ways to improve, so please send us your feedback!
We care about the environment
- Our products are lead-free and RoHS compliant: no lead is used in the components that make up the products, and no lead is used in the assembly process itself.
- When possible, we buy recycled materials and recycle waste materials.
