Today my guitar teacher gave me an old distortion pedal he no longer used. Neither of us had heard of the company before (printing in big bold letters along the rubber stomper is STEVEN). Does anyone know about a Steven pedal company (my guitar teacher bought it in the 80's, and there's no information about them anywhere). The pedal itself is the DI-5 Distortion by Steven. It actually sounds pretty awesome (very fuzzy, raw distortion) and the pedal looks like a wider, flame red DS-1 from Boss

According to some quick browsing, they were made in korea. The HC effects forum might know more about it.
