I worked a lot on my first homemade effect : I was only 15 but I already had my own laboratory. Here, I used to love and enjoy creating various types of circuits, from amplifiers to effects.

Like many, I have always been looking for an authentic effect for the sound of my guitar . I could never bear a pedal that would lose even one of the vibrations that come from the instrument up to the amplifier, as often happens with the common pedal effects.

99% of these effects sound exactly the same way, this made me realize that a quality product was missing on the market. My engineering background has led me to put a maniacal attention to every detail to create an outstanding production that goes out of the standards and can create a unique sound to a musician like you.

I understand that the sound of a pedal is satisfying, feeling the result with the ears and the belly.

Don’t you just love that warm buzzy feeling in your stomach listening to the song you are most fond of?

Here it is, I know I’ve created the perfect effect when I feel exactly that same feeling.

  • Three words to describe the DOPHIX® effects: Uniqueness, Quality, Creativity
  • The most beautiful thing about this profession: Turning my biggest passion into a job and staying in direct contact with musicians
  • Music genre best represents you: Alternative Rock ?

The demon of music took possession of my body in the ’80s, decade in which I began my experience as a guitarist in several Florentine bands. The musical emotions I felt during that period are the same ones I still search today.
This is precisely what led me to know and trade effects. I wanted other musicians to experience real emotions through the sound of their own guitar. How could this be done? By finding the most suitable effects to give life to the sound they were looking for.

I spent years discovering and importing from all over the world different types of effects created by the most disparate people : hobbyists, structured societies, misunderstood geniuses and even cheaters (because, believe me there are those too J). But this was not enough; I had not yet found the pedal that fully satisfied my expectations.

I felt I had to create my own project : produce sought-after guitar effects, totally designed and made by hand. My dream came to life when I met Stefano. Immediately, a perfect synergy was created and gave the spark to the evolution of a winning idea.

Deeply devoted to research and care of the image, she is the feminine and attentive heart of the group Everything that surrounds a DOPHIX® pedal passes through her hands and under her supervision, because the attention to detail is not only heard but seen. As they say … behind a great effect there is always a great woman!

What I am about to tell you might amaze you. I don’t play any instrument and I don’t sing.

It seems strange, doesn’t it? However, I think this is precisely what allows me to contribute to the development of the DOPHIX® brand.

I take part in the creation of each effect going beyond the sound it creates. Each DOPHIX® pedal belongs to a trilogy that tells a story, brings us straight in a narrative path, as well as sound. This is the distinctive element of our production.

A pedal has its own personality, it is not just a simple technical instrument.

The David, for example, embodies the heroic personality of the character who bears his own name. My job is to stand out all this through graphics, images and other tool of communication. The first visual impact is the key to communicate the character of the sound for each effect.

I follow the musicians during their concerts. I’m excited to hear the music they create thanks to our effects. Every time is a different sound experience. It fills me with pride to know that they are happy to share the stage with the DOPHIX® trilogies, to bring the public into a sea storm with Neptune or to descend to the hell of rock .
