This international team created one-of-a-kind versions of each company’s premier hand-built effects, and auctioned them on eBay. Many of the pedals were painted with a unique tsunami scheme by relief organizer and custom pedal painter Donner Rusk. So far, the builders have raised more than $10,000, with 100 percent of the funds going to the American Red Cross and Save the Children tsunami charities. Contributors include FoxRox, Jack Orman (pictured), Andy Nichols, OZFX, Skreddy, BJF, Paul Cochrane, Sweet Sound, Donner Rusk, Cusack, Barber, Monster FX, Xotic, Red Witch, Effector 13, D*A*M, Analog Man, MI Audio, Musictoyz.com, Clark Amplification, and Jeorge Tripps.
