This page provides the required warning when a product is being sold to a customer in California, where consumers are subject to California law adopted by their voters with Prop 65.  We would like our customers to be aware that all parts are made using processes that involve chemicals.  This means that any effects pedal that you have, your television set, your car, or anything else that you own containing a circuit board was made using such chemicals.


Your likelihood of actual exposure to these chemicals is remote. So, as long as you aren't using it for a cutting board surface for your food or sawing it up and breathing the sawdust you are very unlikely to experience any ill effects from these parts. Most of them are RoHS compliant, with some parts containing lead (primarily vintage, NOS, or leaded solder). We are simply complying with the law in stating this warning to avoid suit pursuant lawyers from suing for non-compliance with California law.  For more information on Prop 65 and the requirements, please visit
