At the request of friends and fellow musicians, Creation Pedalboards (Later renamed Creation Music Company) was started in the Summer of 2013 by John Snyder and father Bruce Snyder to meet the growing demand of the custom pedalboard world. We are driven by a love of music and providing quality gear to the music world.
John Snyder has a long history in the music industry working at various music stores and giving private guitar and drum lessons. He has served as a staff worship leader alongside his wife and actively continues to play at church. John also has years of textile and woodworking experience which are skills that have helped set Creation apart in terms of quality.
Bruce Snyder has years of wood working knowledge that help to make products that are both beautiful and built to last. I mean... his dovetails are simply magical. He is also a muscian with decades of experience playing saxophone and other woodwinds.
In late 2016, Creation Music received a Cease and Desist for one of their pedalboard designs. This cause them to innovate their current design for The Elevation Series, as well as spurred the conversation for Creation to acquire Risen Amps and re-brand them as Creation.
Today, Creation specializes in Pedalboards, Amps, and accessories along with other pro audio and wiring services. Alongside with their sister company Foxpedal (acquired January 2018) Creation as a whole offers a wide selection of products for the modern guitar player.
