MacDaddy MDP1 "Platypus" Compact Stomp Box - Natural Finish
The MacDaddy MDP1 "Platypus" Compact Stomp Box is a half size body with a huge bottom end thump, compact enough for the travelling musician. Ideally suited to a match up with the Taipan model for those who want to play with both feet or to place together as a heel / toe combination or mount in line on a pedal board. Natural camphor laurel finish highlighting stunning individual grain patterns.

Stunning Grain
Each MacDaddy stomp box has it’s own unique finish. It features a beautifully grained timber, boasting enormous colour variations, and it is a fairly soft timber, which produces excellent acoustic properties. No two pieces are alike – and when you’re making hand crafted musical instruments, that’s a really good thing. Stompboxes are primarily the realm of acoustic guitarists (and acoustic guitarists love timber).

Camphor Laurel
Camphor Laurel has a unique perfume. If you’ve never cut into a piece of camphor laurel, try it – the smell is amazing. Camphor Laurel is a noxious weed in Australia. It has the ability to adapt to a disturbed environment, grows at a prolific rate and has an enormous abundance of seeds. It is  mildly toxic if eaten and therefore doesn’t have any natural predators. It is relatively immune to disease. Being a big shady tree it is difficult to remove and tends to create a single species environment because it is so dense. It is the perfect timber for MacDaddy Stomp Boxes!

History of MacDaddy
The Macdaddy story began in June 2012 when professional musician and amateur woodworker Adam Truscott, became frustrated with the stompboxes available at the time. This problem led him to designing and redesigning the pickups and trialing different body shapes until he had a product that became the MacDaddy Wombat, the staple of the range. When Adam was content with the Wombat he turned his attention to designing the other models in the range. The Platypus was the next model, a smaller foot print with the same wombat thump.

The  next challenge was to produce something unique and different sounding, leading to the development of the Kookaburra and Artist models, using tambourine jungles. Both had their own individual characteristics that were quite striking. Finally the Koala model emerged. The concept was to combine the bottom end thump of the Wombat and Platypus with the characteristics of the Artist and Kookaburra, and a double ended the heel toe action provided the answer. Rather than using two stompboxes that were EQ’d differently, the Koala has two outputs and sounds in the one pedal.

MacDaddy believe that their stompboxes are the best on the market and are awfully proud of them!
