What's Hot

Does anybody know if the British Pedal Company is the same as JMI or if it's the music ground lots new business?
I'm looking for an accurate tone bender MK 1.5 and they both offer one but there is a substantial price difference.
Many thanks

    British Pedal Company's contact telephone number - 01977 620851

    A Google search for that number brings up Rockers Guitars and Justin Harrison. 

    Rockers Guitars Ltd has one director, a Mrs Samantha Jane Harrison. 


    Oddly enough she was the director of the Rock of Ages Evangelical Church in Doncaster. Presumably she hasn't got the ability to take five loaves and two fish and turn them into a batch of vintage guitars (bought honest, guv'nor, nothing shady here etc).

    Hiwatt as a company was dissolved and is now a trading name beloning to Hylight Electronics. Hylight also have the JMI name. 

    The sole director listed for Hylight Electronics is one Mark Lodge. Back in 2007, Steve Giles (when he was working for JMI) mentions a Mark Lodge working for Music Ground:


    Given the location of Hylight and the name connections, I'd say JMI and the British Pedal Company are at least on conversational terms. Personally I wouldn't touch either of them.

    Apologies for thread necromancy, but I wanted to add:

    I have very good cause to believe that these two pedal brands/marques are very closely related to one another.

    They are. Well established years ago. Over at HCFX a poster claiming to be a former employee threw up some pictures that are sadly lost to the mists of time. They featured a Dumble that the poster claimed was fake. What nailed it on as being MG was the large number of boxes marked JMI in the background and some order sheets you could observe when zoomed in. 

    Wouldn't spend money on either brand especially after Steve Giles had less than complimentary words about MG after working with them.

    Yeah! I reckon he was about to crack and tell us who the two crooked pedal companies operated by Music Ground were!
