Dear Friends

I am writing to notify you that Plutoneium will cease business as of May 1st 2014. At this date, we will take no new orders, and will cease product support to existing customers for repairs/replacements for faults reported within 14 days of this date. After this, sadly, we cannot provide any further interaction and the business will close.

Plutoneium has been a labour of love for us for the past 5 years and continues to make a profit, however, with the departure of one of our key partners back to the United States (family reasons), there is no longer sufficient time for those of us remaining to be able to continue the business and give it the attention it really needs to thrive and grow more, given all of our other life priorities here in Singapore. With the bandwidth we have now, we are really in a very reactive mode and struggle to build and ship even the smallest orders.

I would like to thank each of you – all of our customers and dealers, for your interest in buying/selling our product and helping get us known around the world – it really exceeded our expectations – the support and help I got from the effects community in getting established. I am sorry that we will no longer be able to supply you.

The company IP is up for sale (rights to name, designs, inventory) – if any of you are interested in persisting the Plutoneium brand, please let me know and we can discuss a very reasonable deal – if not, that’s also OK, we will be disposing of everything, ceasing operations and hope to treasure our memories of the wild ride we had from the day we dreamed up the design, through the day the first unit rolled off the production line, through the time we got our first order of 100 units and many other key milestones during the journey and thrill of running our own business selling a product we made with our own hands that people actually wanted around the world.

Kind regards, best wishes

Plutoneium Chi-Wah-Wah featured in Premier Guitar Magazine

Posted in Uncategorized on August 3, 2012 by plutoneium

Very exciting for us to be featured in Kevin Bolembach’s column ‘State of the Stomp’ which is a regular spot in Premier Guitar magazine.  Kevin loved the wah and you can read his full thoughts on it here.


Some quotes:

“every so often a daring maverick grabs the wheel and steers the industry in a decidedly forward—if not slightly off-center—direction”

“every single aspect of the Chi-Wah-Wah screams quality”

“I believe Plutoneium has successfully raised the bar of wah design and I suggest other manufacturers take note. “
