Carl Martin

Carl Martin Guitar Effects, Guitar Amplifiers, Strings and Accessories.

Designed by East Sound Research of Denmark, Carl Martin effects are among the best in the business, offering superior tonal quality and built-like-a-tank mechanical endurance that will even outlast their owners. Thanks to their extensive knowledge of the professional music industry and close relationships with a wide range of demanding musicians, Carl Martin is able to consistently create critically acclaimed effects that are sure to impress even the most ardent stompbox aficionado.


Founded in 1990 as a professional PA sound rental company, the brand found new life soon after as a custom-made audio equipment manufacturer. By 1993, Carl Martin had unleashed their first pedal to the world, the Hot Drive’n Boost, a booster praised for its no-nonsense, tough as nails construction, exceptional sound quality and features not seen on any other stompbox. With over 40 effects and counting, Carl Martin has the perfect pedal for even the most demanding musician!
