The Stupid box was the first pedal introduced by Subdecay Studios in 2003. I had been looking for something to get a big ballsy sound out of my amp, but my ultra clean 100 watt 6L6 based tube amp combo just did not seem to agree with anything I threw in front of it. Sustain, and good harmonic response were a must. After going through plenty of overdrives and distortions, and building a few 'clones', I finally decided to build my own.
I wanted something with a big low end, without getting muddy, and an in your face sound, without the high end sizzle I got with a lot of other pedals. After a few weeks of experimenting after band practice, I came up with the stupid box.
