I think people were overdriving the mixer but satisfaction - maestro is one of the first commercial pedals.

Back to topic, as far as I know two very first "effect boxes" ever were a volume pedal, simply titled "Volume Pedal", and an electro mechanic tremolo effect, titled "Tremolo Control", from DeArmond. Both manufactured by Rowe Industries in the early 1930's. The latter, initially a carry-on effect, was refined to foot-operated form in circa 1948.

I think I need one now!

> using a slashed speaker

Link Wray was known for this. Also popularizing the Power Chord. Did not get along with corporate music, worked a lot on a 3-track in his chicken shed.

Now battery powered. Remove plug when not in use, please.

Windex conducts really good and doesn't resolve over time, leaving residue, where salt does leave residue and stuff
i also like those knobs a lot

OP, I found this site to be helpful. While not quite the 'phylogenetic tree' or tree of life, it's a wheel of pedals and that's gotta be worth a spin, eh?
