The usual guitar pedal circuit is powered by a single +9 V rail
which complicates sharing circuits between the two worlds. Also,
power consumption is a bigger deal for guitar pedals.

Unless by "guitar DIY" you meant amps ?

I'm also under the impression that the average ratio of
fetishism to rationality + technical insight is somewhat higher
amongst guitar DIY enthusiasts than synth DIY enthusiasts. But
that may be my personal bias. At least they're not into wooden
