VauxFlores


VauxFlores is an audio electronics company founded in San José, Costa Rica in 2011 currently operating out of Baltimore, Maryland - we know - strange transition. Either way, we specialize in the design and manufacture of unique guitar effects and other unusual sound-makers. Inspired by a long-time fascination with analog electronics, as well as a good minute spent in the trenches of experimental music, we strive to create effects that tip the hat to the unheralded relics of the past – foregoing the main-stage recreations and instead focusing on the sounds of the underground – whether it be garage rock, tropicalia, space music, swamp blues, harsh-noise, field hollers, non-idiomatic western free-improvisation… well you get the drift. We’re not looking for the brown, green or blue sound, or the perfect approximation of a particular player’s aesthetics, and have absolutely no desire to produce a compelling clone of the commonplace. What we are after, is offering a decent selection of tools for unconventional musicians in search of something just far enough off the beaten path to be sonically interesting, yet still functionally useful – high-quality, yet rugged; complex, but still just a little raunchy at heart – all lovingly hand-assembled in small batches to ensure quality. Curious? Intrigued? Confused by what VauxFlores even means in the first place? Drop us a line and say hello. Regardless, it’s a pleasure to meet you.
