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!
