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.
Adjusts the gain in the repeater preamp, allowing you to boost or overdrive the echoes.
Setes the amount of Delay time.
Sum is the number of repeats
Level is the overall volume of the repeats relative to your original signal
Modulation controls a gentle amount of pitch shifting in the repeats.
Holding down the havoc footswitch will allow the pedal to run away in a less focused, less 'woofy' manner than simply turning up the sum. Releasing it will return the level set by the sum control.
