Barber Electronics is well known for their high quality effects that are priced affordably for working musicians. While the word "boutique" gets thrown around a lot in the effects pedal world, David Barber will have none of it. He simply refers to his pedals as "hand-made." Pedals such at the LTD, Direct Drive, and Burn Unit are already "cult-status" amongst a wide group of guitar players. Barber pedals are also unique, original designs, not just more Tube Screamer clones.
The company is committed to producing high quality effects, using matched components, and offering excellent customer service and support for their pedals. With clientele such as Eric Johnson, Joe Satriani, and Rick Derringer, you would expect Barber to charge a premium price; however, all of their pedals are affordably priced and built to last.
