What is A.I.B Custom Fx?

Well...the acronym stands for Arts In Bloodshed© and the whole thing is a small guitar and bass pedal workshop, founded in 2013 and entirely dedicated to built the best, the gainiest and most unconventional one-off custom pedals in the heart of the eastern forests of France.

The credo is pretty straight forward: conjure almost 10 years spent in the scientific research area, channel more than 20 years of experience in the music industry and brew it with a life long dark fantasy, horror films and role playing game culture to build the most unique metal fuzz & distortion pedals. The brand provides all metal genres, but specializes in heavy, muddy,  low tuned styles like funeral doom, sludge, stoner and death.

As of today, more than 200 custom one-off and custom utilitarian have been built, for anonymous aspiring musicians, international pride like Dave Krocker, Billy Cordell, ted Venemann, Anneke van Giersbergen, or legends as Brant Bjork, Nick Oliveri, John garcia.
