Builder 1: Industrialectric // http://www.industrialectric.com/
Where they're made: Toronto, Canada (stab: Walrus Audio Jupiter Fuzz)
Builder: Andrew Ferrari
Industrialectric is a small company run by Mr. Andrew Ferrari in Toronto, Canada. They're really for the adventurous musician, the "screw the rules" type of player. They're lo-fi, they're noisy and brutally beautiful. His pedals are guitar, bass and synth friendly. Alessandro Cortini, of Nine Inch Nails fame, demos one of Andrew's pedals on That Pedal Show (Will provide link).
Current Run of Pedals:
RM-1N: Reverb and Dirt machine. The RM-1N features 9 knobs, two switches and a momentary switch--Plenty of control that ranges from clean and lush, or dirty and chaotic.
Level - Overall output of the pedal
Reverb Depth- How deep and massive the Reverb will sound
Feedback - Produces longer Reverb trails and oscillation
Pre-Gain - The Gain stage introduced into the Reverb
Post-Gain - The gain stage introduced after the Reverb
Drone - THIS KNOB WILL GENERATE A MASSIVE NOISY OSCILLATING DRONE, SOMETHING VERY UNIQUE TO THE CIRCUIT AND STARTS WORKING WHEN TURNED ALMOST UP. YOU CAN GET MORE RANGE WHEN DRIVING THE GAIN STAGES INTO IT
Reverb Output 1 and 2 - PANS BETWEEN OUTPUT 1&2 OF THE REVERB MODULE, WHEN THE KNOB IS IN THE MIDDLE IT COMBINES BOTH OUTPUTS. THIS IS MEANT TO BE A VERY SUBTLE CHARACTERISTIC AND IF YOU HAVE KEEN EARS YOU’LL BE ABLE TO TELL THE DIFFERENT TEXTURES
Hi/Low Switch - SELECTS BETWEEN A HIGHER OR LOWER FREQUENCY OF THE REVERB
Reverb Length Switch - WHEN THIS SWITCH IS ENGAGED IT DISABLES THE FEEDBACK KNOB AND THE REVERB MIX, REVERB DEPTH, AND REVERB OUTPUT KNOBS CAN BE USED TO DIAL IN VERY LONG REVERB TRAILS AND INFINITE DECAY!
MOMENTARY SWITCH TRIGGERS OSCILLATION AND FEEDBACK ON THE FLY AND IN OTHER SETTING CAN BE USED TO CONTROL THE REVERB DECAY
ECHO DEGRADER: LO-FI Delay Madness (stab: Earthquaker Disaster Transport)
CONTROLS: OUTPUT The overall volume of the effect
TIME The time of the echo repeats, from a very tight reverb tank/tub sound to extremely slow and very degraded, crunchy, repeats.
REPEAT / BLEND This is one of the unique parameters of this pedal, it serves as the overall volume of the repeats as well as the dry and wet blend of the echo and can serve as a nice warm boost.
TONE / THRESHOLD The other unique parameter of this pedal, it serves as an overall tone control and a threshold for oscillation and many other functions when combined with other parameters.
DEGRADE This control will cut down the signal going through the delay and can act as sort of a comb filter static noise sound. In other settings it will produce arpeggiated delay rings and in others sound like a really old screaming destroyed tape machine when the stability is thrown off.
TAPE STABILITY This control emulates how a tape can produce subtle pleasing modulation to being completely torn up and thrown off of the machine!
TAPE INPUT These modes are very interactive and dynamic with how loud or heavy your signal going in is. If playing guitar, you can produce subtle to very drastic modulation based on how hard you hit your strings. This switch works in conjunction with the tape stability control.
TAPE FIDELITY There are two modes with this switch, in the down position the repeats are full with tape noise. In the up position the repeats are of a higher frequency and more lo-fi and noisy.
MOMENTARY FOOTSWITCH This footswitch can be used as a killswitch, stutter switch, trail switch, oscillation, and can modulate the tape stability function when used together.
SPECIAL FUNCTIONS - What sets the Echo Degrader apart from other delay pedals is that it has the ability to repeat your signal for a long time without going into oscillation. These lengths vary from pedal to pedal because the components are all made differently the lengths aren’t always the same. You can essentially make beats and orchestrate a whole song out of it! It’s a lot like a loop pedal but very organic and it evolves over time. There a infinite possibilities with this pedal
His 3rd pedal is a wild Synth madness pedal based on the Schumann PLL. It's hard to describe but if folks are interested they can check the site and KNOBS did a demo of it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ldll03Ocg8o
You can find Andrew's pedals at Axe and You Shall Receive...a Canadian retailer.

KNOBS also did a 4 minute feature on Andrew where he talks about design philosophy-- an excellent watch : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=csCh_9zICoE&t=4s
