Shipping: Orders are shipped using USPS Priority mail, which includes a tracking number, both for US and international orders. Shipping times within the US are generally 3 to 5 business days (Monday through Friday). For international orders, shipping times are generally 6 to 10 business days.
Warranty: Iron Ether products are warranted to be free of defects in parts or manufacturing for one year to the original owner. After one year, IE will fix anything for a small fee. The warranty is void if you take the pedal apart, attempt to modify it, or operate it in a way that goes against warnings in the manual.
Return Policy: You may return a pedal or module within 5 days of receiving it, if it is still in like-new condition, for a refund of the purchase price (does not include shipping costs for international orders). You are responsible for return shipping costs.
Q. Do you offer endorsement deals, free pedals, or artist discounts? A. No. All of my customers are musicians, and it's important to me to treat them equally, regardless of album sales or fame. I prefer to know that anyone using Iron Ether equipment is doing so because they like it enough to purchase it.
Q. Can I use a battery to power my Iron Ether pedal? A. No, only a 9 volt DC, center negative power supply may be used. Current draw for each pedal is listed on the pedal's individual page, but for all IE pedals is within the range of 40mA to 90mA.
Q. Do the expression jacks on Iron Ether pedals accept control voltage (CV) signals? A. No, they do not. They are meant to be used with passive expression pedals.
Q. Which expression pedal(s) do you recommend for use with expression-equipped IE pedals? A. The Moog EP-3 is an affordable choice that works well. It includes a range knob that is especially useful for tailoring the sweep. If you're looking for a more rugged solution, Mission Engineering makes a series of sturdy metal expression pedals. They also carry a device called the Expressionator, which is a very useful tool for controlling multiple expression jacks at once, so you can control your FrantaBit and Xerograph Deluxe simultaneously with one foot, for example.
Q. Do you ship outside the US? A. Yes, Iron Ether ships to any country in the world. Shipping to Canada is $32 USD. Shipping to all other countries outside of the US is $39 USD. Shipping charges will automatically be added to your shopping cart while checking out, based on your location.
