About Becos FX
We are a small team of tech-geeks based in Constanta city, on the Black Sea coast of Romania - which is part of the European Union.
We manufacture what we like to believe are great tone-shaping tools for professional musicians and sound producers. We focus on dynamic processing effects that offer control and flexibility for a wide range of applications. Our product portfolio is small but highly specialized, with the potential to be recognized as the best in class.
We design our products in-house, including the circuit boards. We outsource PCB fabrication, SMD assembly, and enclosure printing to third parties. We perform the CNC machining ourselves and we use only original Hammond aluminum enclosures for our pedals. We put everything together by hand, one product after another, in our micro lab, using the best electronic components we can source from reputable suppliers in the USA, UK, and other European countries. We do not mass-produce our products.
We use audio-grade polyester and C0G capacitors for the audio path in all our products. This not only contributes to great audio performance but also to a lifetime of usage without worrying about sound degradation, even in extreme environmental conditions. To complement that, we use sealed potentiometers and gold-plated contact switches. All semiconductors in our circuits are selected for best audio reproduction, with low noise and low distortion characteristics. We prefer FETs for their high impedance and warm tone print but we won't limit to that. Where space allows, we offer IC sockets for future technology upgrades. We often design our PCB's in multi-layers, to follow the best design practices used in high-end audio products. This also allows us to downsize the products while adding more features. We are using Electroless Nickel Immersion Gold surface finish in all our PCB's for perfect surface alignment, corrosion prevention while aiming for lifetime endurance. Although cheap and practical, we avoid using wires in our builds, especially for audio signals.
We build to order but we try to keep a small buffer-stock of products for faster delivery. Sometimes we are either outpaced by demand or encounter delays in production due to unforeseen events. When building to order you may need to wait a few days for your product to be dispatched.
We strive to be very good at what we are doing, and we have a built-to-last manufacturing philosophy. Our products are not cut for simplicity but tailored for audio performance and problem-solving instead. Performance comes with complications which may add to manufacturing costs but we want to put more value into our products. We want them to be highly competitive and have your investment secured for many years to come.
We stand by our products with after-sales support and we offer a premium 3-years international & transferable warranty policy.
We respect and value the relationship with our customers and users and we strive to provide the best customer support possible. If anyone encounters issues with our products, even post-warranty, we will do our best to solve things in a fast and easy way.
