NAMM 2023!!!

First things first, I have closed custom ordering for the time being as I am getting ready to go to the NAMM convention in Anaheim April 13-15. I expect to resume building custom orders in early May upon my return. This also gives me time to get parts in to repair my UV printer, as it’s currently in bad need of refurbishment.

The main purpose of my visit to NAMM (aside from ogling awesome gear) will be to promote Venus X, a new preamp designed in collaboration with the amazing bassist Tony Puleo. Venus X is a two channel tube preamp with an active 4-band EQ, dry passthrough, switchable cabsim, and D.I. XLR output featuring magnetics from Lightning Boy Audio. Currently I expect to have Venus X available for ordering in early Summer 2023, so you can stay tuned for more info on that.

Venus X is my current #1 priority, but I do also have some other exciting designs in the pipeline, so stay posted!

Pedals in Stock and New Ordering

In-Stock Options


I’ll start with the biggest thing first. Starting this year my goal has been to start regularly stocking SMD versions of all the pedals I offer for those that don’t want to wait for a custom build. A couple models sold out almost as soon as they were posted and I’m working on getting more built up to re-stock. I’m allowing backorders on models as I will be actively trying to keep stock on hand, so when something runs out I will build more to get posted within 2-4 weeks. You can check out what’s in stock and ready to go here.

Custom Ordering Open

In addition to the in-stock options, I’ve also opened up ordering for the February batch of custom builds. I’ve changed the way the ordering is set up, you can take a look here. I will still be building in monthly batches, but I’m going to leave ordering open all the time. Every order placed before February 1st will get built in the February batch, and anything ordered during the month of February will be built in March, etc.

New Model Available

I had pulled JC Emerald from ordering in December while I redesigned the circuit, and the new version is available now. I have a couple in stock with a handful more to be finished and added to stock in the next day or two, but it is also available for custom ordering.

New Model Incoming

I’ve mentioned a couple times in a couple places already, but I’m very excited to be working with legendary bassist Tony Puleo on a new preamp, Venus X. It’s still under development but is getting very close, and we’re excitedly planning to have it ready to officially announce with all its details in April 2023.

That’s it for now, stay loud my friends.

August Ordering and More

August and More

August ordering is now open! This will be the last business-as-usual batch, starting in September I’m going to be limiting finishing options to keep things more uniform and easy to manufacture. Sushi Box has been having a bit of growing pains as I try to balance my time between building, developing, and customer support. I’m sure I will have more info on that in the future.

Speaking of more, there is a new pedal being offered in the August batch. More is a simple clean preamp, it’s essentially the same circuit as the now-discontinued Deep Dish compressor, but with the compression circuit removed. It’s an excellent option as an always-on tube tone sweetener. You can check out More here.

That’s it for now, as always feel free to reach out with any questions!
