Chicago, IL – January 28, 2021 – DOPHIX® are handmade high-end guitar effects produced in Italy with point-to-point soldering aimed to recreate a warm vintage sound of the 70s. On the market since 2015, their sound research is manic – music must express emotions. Each DOPHIX® pedal is unique and entirely handmade in Dophix’s Florence, Italy factory, and they personally take care of every stage of production and testing, to guarantee the highest quality. The effects line is characterized by our robust box structure, potentiometers and switches. There is no substitution for quality. The DOPHIX® effects are extremely quiet, excluding any background noise. A distinctive element of their products is the presence of an LED at the base. Not only beautiful to see, but useful in giving more visibility to the musician on stage. The current effects range consists of overdrive, fuzz, distortion, boost, compressor, booster, tremolo, chorus/phaser and blender.

The pedal company has selected Chicago-based Lyon & Healy Corporation as their exclusive distributor in North America.  Lyon & Healy Corporation’s COO, Massimo Dolce, said, “We are extremely pleased to have forged a relationship with DOPHIX in Italy.  The brand and their products exemplify all of the quality traits of innovation that we search for in new products to distribute within the North American Territory.”  He went on to say, “Our goal, to offer the most elevated line up of boutique products across the musical premium retail space, is one step closer with the addition of DOPHIX handmade guitar effects to our family.”
