The initial problem for Matti Mikkola was that he had gigged with a small board and a selection of separate pedals, so the setup took time and effort. The amount of people on stage with Saimaa can vary from ten to hundred, so extra hassle has to be minimized. When Matti had decided that Tehosekoitin is going make a comeback in summer 2020, he wanted to upgrade his pedal collection to a compact unit needed in festival shows.
