If you’re reading this, you must be getting ready to party like it’s 1983. We’ve kept your original, dry signal path analog and pure, then given you a +21db boost/overdrive preamp to smash a low fidelity digital delay chip designed for karaoke machines and kids’ toys into smeared, repeated glory. Yeah, we’re going back in time – back to when they measured data in KILOBYTES!
This pedal is VERY capable of fun runaway oscillations, both by turning up the summation knob, or a controlled, high-pass filtered oscillation from the Havoc momentary foot switch. If you’ve ever struggled to make your delays come through prominently in the mix, or lost definition from your original signal, the attack and level controls can allow you to dial up everything from crisp, clean slapbacks to dirty, muted echoes and loud, powerful repeats. A beautiful, subtle modulation circuit courtesy of our friend Jack DeVille also sweetens the repeats with just the right amount of movement.
ATTACK adjusts the gain in the repeater preamp, allowing you to boost or
overdrive the echoes.
CLOCK sets the amount of delay time.
SUM is the
number of repeats; set this high and this pedal can run away and self
LEVEL is the overall volume of the repeats relative to your original
MODULATION controls a gentle amount of pitch shifting in the
repeats. It was designed for us by our friend Jack DeVille at Mr. Black Pedals.
Holding down the HAVOC footswitch will allow the pedal to run away in a
focused, less ‘woofy’ manner than simply turning up SUM. Releasing it will
return to the level set by the SUM control.
Proudly made in the USA at our small batch distortery™ in Columbia, S.C.
IMPORTANT: use only a 9V DC center negative tip power supply, BOSS PSA or
equivalent industry standard units. Powersupply not included.
