Tucked away in a back alley on the out skirts of Chicago is Tim Schroeder’s Guitar and Amp Repair. Tim has a very comprehensive skill set. He is a a triple threat in the world of boutique builders. As a luthier, effect designer, and amp builder Tim is equally comfortable crafting archtops as he is designing circuits. This summer, while exploring all the Chicago music scene had to offer, I was lucky enough to discover Tim’s shop where he introduced me to a very unique pedal design. In this first of two episodes with Tim take a listen as he talks about his background and his innovative pedal, the ‘Blister Agent’.
