Handmade guitar effects with a theological bent

Frequently Asked Questions


Every Westminster Effects pedal is made by one guy out of his home office in Lyman, South Carolina, located in the Upstate right between Greenville and Spartanburg. My goal is provide high quality guitar effects at reasonable prices for everyone, but particularly to the worship leading community.

Custom


love custom builds, and I do believe my prices and quality are among the best in the industry. If you want me to build a one­ off, email me at westminstereffects@gmail.com and use “Custom” as the first word in the subject line.

Warranty/Repair


I’m only human, so I’m bound to screw up a pedal or two, but I also stand by my build quality. Every Westminster Effects pedal carries a limited lifetime warranty, so as long as this company exists, I’ll fix any errors in functionality at no cost (minus shipping, of course).

Broken knobs, pots and jacks are not covered, because these aren’t meant to be stomped on via you jumping off your half stack. I will, however, repair these for a small, reasonable fee. Additionally, any attempted modification to the circuit will void the warranty, just like running any pedal at higher than recommended voltages will void it.

If you need your pedal repaired, email westminstereffects@gmail.com.

Returns


We typically don’t accept returns or trade-ins of our own products. Extenuating circumstances may rarely prompt it, but our goal is to fulfill every order in a timely manner and make sure everyone’s happy.

Note: Custom orders are not eligible for refunds.

Power


Every Westminster Effects pedal runs on a standard DC adapter with a negative ground. It seems industry standard to recommend an isolated power supply, and those are great, but you should be able to use these in non­isolated environments with minimal problems. Many pedals will also accept up to 18V, but check the specific product pages, because using power above the approved rating will both fry your pedal and void the warranty. Additionally, Westminster Effects don’t include any battery adapters.

Churches and Seminaries


If you’re a church or a seminary student, email us at westminstereffects@gmail.com from your official church or school domain, and we’ll work out a deal in the form of a discount code.

International Orders


Yes, we will ship internationally. Please understand, however, that this junk takes a while to ship and can get caught up in customs, because governments.

Also, tariffs are legalized theft, but I can’t in good conscience claim something as half the item cost. I’ll be as generous as possible while rendering to Caesar what is Caesar’s (even if he is a jerk).

Circuits


You’ve opened up the pedal I built and found some logo of a dude with crazy hair and glasses. What gives? I have an arrangement with Kyle at delyk PCB. (http://pcb.delyk.com/)  I can’t/won’t give you all the details, but we’ll just say I throw him schematics and we both benefit. Sometimes, all I have to throw him is an idea; he’s just that awesome. So, if you want to build your own close approximation of my pedals (I don’t follow any of his PCBs build docs verbatim) and you’re the DIY type, you can. All told, this is my version of a gutshot. I’m being honest with you, the buyer, about what’s inside my pedals while not compromising how awesome the tone is.
