Also, inside there is a trim-pot adjustment on the small daughter board attached to the bypass switch to set the mix of ring-modulated sound versus direct guitar... when shipped from the factory, this is mix is set for pure ring-modulation.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eSetup: \u003cbr\u003eThe way I've set up the Ringtone in the setup video on the zvex.com website is as follows: Set the upper left switch to step mode (far right.) Switch the bypass stomp switch to on, so that ring modulation begins. Turn the first carrier knob (with the illuminated led) to a pitch which matches your first chord or note selection on the guitar and gives a pleasing tone. The pitch of the carrier is lower to the right, with the extreme setting resulting in tremolo-like pulsing.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003ePush the left stomp switch to advance to the next carrier knob and repeat the process until you have prepared all of the carrier knobs to pitches which work with your chord or note progression. For sequenced operation, set the small upper left switch to the left for Run mode, and adjust the speed knob next to it for the proper speed. The left stomp switch selects sequenced or random action in this mode.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eFor sequencing, set the small upper left switch to sequence mode and use the left stomp switch to set the tempo, one-for-one tapping for each channel change. To set the speed with the speed knob, simply turn the knob more than 10% from its previous position and it will take over tempo control. Tap at any time to set tap tempo. You must tap an even number of times to initiate tap tempo. Tapping 3 times, for example, will confuse the unit as it waits for the 4th tap. You may set the small upper left switch for random mode to create unpredictable patterns. The rest of the functions work as in sequence mode.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eInternal adjustment: To set the mix control as demonstrated in the first video for the Ringtone on zvex.com, begin by removing the four screws on the bottom of the unit. Set the lid aside and use a small flat-blade screwdriver or your fingernail to adjust the blue trim pot for the proper mix of guitar\/ring mod. Note the original position... this position is pure ring modulation. The other extreme setting is pure guitar.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eBattery: \u003cbr\u003eIf operation becomes intermittent, replace the dead battery with a fresh alkaline 9 volt battery. The Ringtone has special circuitry which helps drain the battery to a very low voltage before it fails, to extract as much power as possible from the battery before diminishing the quality of operation. This helps save on batteries as well as helping the environment. Be sure to recycle your batteries!\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eFor use with a 9V adaptor, you must purchase a Z.Vex power plate and be sure to protect the unit from damage by securely taping the battery clips to avoid shorting inside, and taping the clips into the battery compartment securely away from the jacks.","published_at":"2017-09-06T14:11:10-04:00","created_at":"2017-09-06T14:11:10-04:00","vendor":"Zvex","type":"Pedals and Effects","tags":["15_percent","Brand_Zvex","reverbsync-offers:off","reverbsync-shipping-profile:free 2 day","Type_Ring Modulator Pedals"],"price":38900,"price_min":38900,"price_max":38900,"available":false,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":0,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":45058496654,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"855245003145","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":true,"featured_image":{"id":26902331470,"product_id":11356077902,"position":1,"created_at":"2017-09-06T14:11:10-04:00","updated_at":"2017-09-06T14:11:10-04:00","alt":"Zvex RingTone TT","width":800,"height":800,"src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2015\/7205\/products\/ZvexRingtoneTTTapTempo.jpg?v=1504721470","variant_ids":[45058496654]},"available":false,"name":"Zvex RingTone TT Ring Modulation Pedal","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":38900,"weight":0,"compare_at_price":0,"inventory_quantity":0,"inventory_management":"shopify","inventory_policy":"deny","barcode":"855245003145"}],"images":["\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2015\/7205\/products\/ZvexRingtoneTTTapTempo.jpg?v=1504721470"],"featured_image":"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2015\/7205\/products\/ZvexRingtoneTTTapTempo.jpg?v=1504721470","options":["Title"],"content":"To view a Quicktime movie demo of this pedal click \u003ca target=\"_blank\" href=\"http:\/\/media.zvex.com\/ringtonedemo.mov\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: rgb(0, 0, 255);\"\u003ehere\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/a\u003e.\u003cbr\u003eHere is a setup video for this pedal click \u003ca target=\"_blank\" href=\"http:\/\/media.zvex.com\/ringtonesetup.mov\"\u003e\u003cspan style=\"color: rgb(0, 0, 255);\"\u003ehere\u003c\/span\u003e\u003c\/a\u003e.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cstrong\u003eDescription:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThe Ringtone TT by Z.Vex Effects is the world's first dedicated tap-tempo sequenced ring modulator for guitar use.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eControls: \u003cbr\u003eThe controls are as follows: from the upper left, there is a sequence\/random\/step switch which sets the function of the left stomp switch, a speed control for the sequence\/random mode, 8 individual carrier pitch adjustment knobs, the left stomp switch which enters tap tempos or operates as a manual step control, and the true-bypass stomp switch on the right.

The pitch of the carrier is lower to the right, with the extreme setting resulting in tremolo-like pulsing.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003ePush the left stomp switch to advance to the next carrier knob and repeat the process until you have prepared all of the carrier knobs to pitches which work with your chord or note progression. For sequenced operation, set the small upper left switch to the left for Run mode, and adjust the speed knob next to it for the proper speed. The left stomp switch selects sequenced or random action in this mode.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eFor sequencing, set the small upper left switch to sequence mode and use the left stomp switch to set the tempo, one-for-one tapping for each channel change. To set the speed with the speed knob, simply turn the knob more than 10% from its previous position and it will take over tempo control. Tap at any time to set tap tempo. You must tap an even number of times to initiate tap tempo. Tapping 3 times, for example, will confuse the unit as it waits for the 4th tap. You may set the small upper left switch for random mode to create unpredictable patterns. The rest of the functions work as in sequence mode.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eInternal adjustment: To set the mix control as demonstrated in the first video for the Ringtone on zvex.com, begin by removing the four screws on the bottom of the unit. Set the lid aside and use a small flat-blade screwdriver or your fingernail to adjust the blue trim pot for the proper mix of guitar\/ring mod. Note the original position... this position is pure ring modulation. The other extreme setting is pure guitar.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eBattery: \u003cbr\u003eIf operation becomes intermittent, replace the dead battery with a fresh alkaline 9 volt battery. The Ringtone has special circuitry which helps drain the battery to a very low voltage before it fails, to extract as much power as possible from the battery before diminishing the quality of operation. This helps save on batteries as well as helping the environment. Be sure to recycle your batteries!\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eFor use with a 9V adaptor, you must purchase a Z.Vex power plate and be sure to protect the unit from damage by securely taping the battery clips to avoid shorting inside, and taping the clips into the battery compartment securely away from the jacks."}

This pedal is so dangerous that Zvex is sure they’ll be getting a lot of complaint emails that people have blown up their amps using it. So let’s just start this off by saying ZVEX WARNED YOU TO BE CAREFUL. When using this pedal, start off slow, and monitor your amp for potential damage. Don’t have too much fun! OK, have too much fun, but don’t blow up your amp in the process. Unless that’s what you want, of course, and well, gosh darn it, it’s your right. Good ol’ Pete Townsend did it. Well, at least he poked his speakers out. All right, Zvex’ll try to stay on track here.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eAhem. The SUPER-DUPER 2-IN-1 has two of Zvex's infamous but rather delightful Super Hard-On pedals in one small box. Also, in this SUPER-DUPER 2-IN-1 is a Master Volume control that lets you use it as an overdrive\/distortion\u003cbr\u003ewith any output volume. \"My my! How conventional\", you say! Well, suffice to say, if it weren’t there, you’d go deaf with both of those channels cranked up. This pedal is dangerously loud. Don’t do what Zvex did, and lean over in front of your speaker cabinet while turning it up. Ouch. Dang.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eChannel 1:\u003cbr\u003eThis channel is a conventional Super Hard-On, which Zvex will henceforth refer to as the SHO, in order to reduce potential offense to young ears and sensitive persons. Its gain control is on the far right, and it’s LED is yellow. If you are familiar with the SHO, you’ll know that it’s a very sparkly sounding high input-impedance preamp with incredible headroom, wide-ranging gain (unity to 60 X), and a maximum volume that will knock out your fillings. Channel one has no Master Volume control, but it’s cascaded into Channel 2, which does...\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eChannel 2 and the Master Volume:\u003cbr\u003eThis channel has the very same circuit as Channel 1, but the bleeder resistor on the output has been replaced with a Master Volume control, which allows the user to turn down the output volume even if the gain is set quite high. The knob on the left is the gain, and the middle knob is the Master Volume, and the LED is red. When both channels are on, or if only Channel 2 is on, the Master Volume is active. If you leave the Master wide open, you have two identical SHO pedals in one box, which are cascaded.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eWhat does this pedal sound like?\u003cbr\u003eYou might wonder just how insane this pedal sounds when you crank up both channels and turn them both on. Zvex could’t get their Les Paul to stop feeding back at any audible volume level on their Marshall when both channels\u003cbr\u003eare wide open, and that’s with the amp set at 1. They're happy about that. Of course, this is not the only setting on the pedal. They don’t think there’s a musician around who wouldn’t be happy to have multiple clean boost pedals set to predictable levels available on stage. This pedal gives you a total of four volume levels, ranging, at your choice, anywhere from perfectly clean to ragingly overdriven. Level 1, your guitar is true-bypassed with both channels off. Level 2, you turn on Channel 1. Level 3, you turn off Channel 1 and turn on Channel 2. This is easy because you can put your foot on both switches at once and alternate between the two channels if you want. Level 4, you turn on both channels.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThere is no tone shaping in this pedal. It’s two perfectly linear high-gain high input-impedance preamps that can be cascaded, with a total gain that ranges from unity to 3600. That’s right, the maximum gain with both channels wide open is a whopping 3600, which is so completely distorted, hissy, feedbacky, and insane, that you’ll never ever have a steady relationship again. Or a lease. Or a pet. Luckily, with the Master Volume, you can listen to what it would sound like to lose everything you love at a reasonable volume. Naturally, because there is no tone-shaping, your guitar just sounds like a really loud version of your guitar, and your amp sounds like a really big version of your amp, and if your normal tone is somewhat bloated, it will get very very bloated when you use this pedal set to high gains. It does best if you are close to getting the tone you want out of your gear already, but just need a boost to make it go over the top. Keep in mind that you can set up the two channels to give you any amount of gain, from a soft bluesy boost in two stages to a crunchy rock level, to a wild sustaining beast.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eHow to set it up:\u003cbr\u003eFirst off, with your amp on standby, plug in the guitar to the input jack (it has a guitar next to it), activating the battery, and the amp to the output jack (it has a speaker). Set the levels on both gain knobs (outside knobs) anywhere up to 3:00, and the Master anywhere you want. Step on the switches several times to equalize the voltages on the input capacitors and eliminate popping noises during switching. Turn your amp volume to a low level to start, and try listening to the two different channels individually and together, adjusting them slowly until you get to the levels you want. Set the Master Volume so that your final output level with both channels active is low enough not to blow up your amp. Remember that Channel 1 works best as the loud clean boost, and has no Master Volume when used alone. Channel 2 can actually distort by itself at any volume level using the Master to limit it’s output level. When you turn the gain knobs, it’s ok if you hear a rushing\/crackling noise. That indicates that the gain and bias of the transistor are being reset. This noise gets more intense toward the right on each of those knobs, but does not in any way indicate anything is wrong with your unit.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eComments on the gain controls:\u003cbr\u003eZvex has taken a lot of flack for the SHO “crackle okay” knob’s noise, which people mistakenly interpret in many different ways. They’ve seen reviews where the user believes that the pot is “cheap” or that it’s “old,” or “bad.” This is not the case. The SHO uses a revolutionary approach to controlling the gain that resets the headroom, gain, and bias of the transistor at the same time, effectively re-designing the circuit for the optimum settings at each volume level. When the knob is not being turned, the unit makes no crackling sounds. It’s not a simple volume control. If it were, the SHO wouldn’t be so special. The SUPER-DUPER 2-IN-1 has this same kind of control for each channel.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eImprovements over the Super Hard-On:\u003cbr\u003eThis pedal has several improvements over the original SHO. The most obvious is that it’s actually 2 SHO’s in one box. Hence the name, SUPER-DUPER 2-IN-1. Also, you may notice that the name can be safely spoken in mixed company, in front of young ears, and used in church. Yes, believe it or not, I get regular emails from people who can’t use or buy an SHO because they are afraid of 1) being beaten up by their redneck friends\/bar patrons\/fans, 2) verbally abused by their girlfriends\/wives\/moms\/dads, 3) raising questions from young people or giggles, pointing, and other goofy behavior, 4) generally feeling like idiots trying to explain why their pedal has such a controversial name. To my credit, the original name only meant to infer that the pedal is “super hard on your amplifier.” Honest. No, really, HONEST! Ok, I took my cue from Mike Matthews Big Muff Pi, I guess. So sorry, everybody. But there are those people who think the name is it’s best feature. Heh. Enough about that. Anyway, the SUPER-DUPER 2-IN-1 is a name I can proudly say in front of my mom. Until she asks, “two whats in one what?” which she will, eventually. She’s that kind of mom.","published_at":"2017-09-06T14:11:13-04:00","created_at":"2017-09-06T14:11:13-04:00","vendor":"Zvex","type":"Pedals and Effects","tags":["15_percent","Brand_Zvex","reverbsync-offers:off","reverbsync-shipping-profile:free 2 day","Type_Distortion Pedals"],"price":31900,"price_min":31900,"price_max":31900,"available":true,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":0,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":45058497934,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"855245003176","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":true,"featured_image":{"id":26902332174,"product_id":11356078222,"position":1,"created_at":"2017-09-06T14:11:13-04:00","updated_at":"2017-09-06T14:11:13-04:00","alt":"Zvex Super Duper","width":758,"height":758,"src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2015\/7205\/products\/ZvexSuperDuper2in1.jpg?v=1504721473","variant_ids":[45058497934]},"available":true,"name":"Zvex Super Duper 2-in-1 Overdrive\/Distortion Pedal","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":31900,"weight":0,"compare_at_price":0,"inventory_quantity":1,"inventory_management":"shopify","inventory_policy":"deny","barcode":"855245003176"}],"images":["\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2015\/7205\/products\/ZvexSuperDuper2in1.jpg?v=1504721473"],"featured_image":"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2015\/7205\/products\/ZvexSuperDuper2in1.jpg?v=1504721473","options":["Title"],"content":"\u003cstrong\u003eDescription:\u003c\/strong\u003e\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eIntroduction:\u003cbr\u003eGentlemen\/women, start your engines.

Always alters the original tone and dynamics.\u003cbr\u003e24] No learning curve! Five simple knobs, two stomp-switches for bypass and record, and a safety switch.\u003cbr\u003e25] Has simple LED status indicator. Lights up solid while recording, blinks once at the end of every loop. Stops in bypass mode.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eWhat it does NOT do:\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003e1] No sound-on-sound. No multiple layers, no overdubbing, just one simple loop.\u003cbr\u003e2] No digital crispness. No dynamic preservation. No high-end detail except on direct guitar. No hi-fi.\u003cbr\u003e3] No reverse playback. Sorry. I wanted this too. The analog recorder chip won’t play backwards.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eZvex has made something. You'll have to decide if it's worth it. It took them years of goofing around with this strange analog recorder but they think it's finally finished. They've put thei best foot forward to make your guitar sound really special this time. The recorded version of your performance may never sound the same as the original, but sounding the same isn’t always the most important part of what effects do.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThis is the Lo-Fi Loop Junky. It’s really low fidelity... the recording of your guitar is filled with hiss, moan, distortion and warped-record strangeness, but everyone will be able to tell the loop from your real guitar. Because the processing of your direct guitar is done with my new bootstrap circuit, with the very highest impedance circuit Zvex has ever developed (even higher than the super hard-on circuit) your direct guitar will have detail incomparable with anything you’ve ever heard. The juxtaposition of your direct guitar against the smashed, distorted, shimmering\/warbling recording of the loop mechanism will make it clear once and for all who is the guitarist and what is the machinery.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eZvex has always been bothered by digital loopers. Who knows who is you and what is the device? Enter the Lo-Fi Loop Junky. No one will ever question who is who and what is what again.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThere are distinct advantages and disadvantages to the new, tiny, battery-saving device. You may only record one loop. There is no sound-on-sound available with this technology for now. But, if you unplug your cables, take out the battery, and bury it for a hundred years, the last loop you recorded will still be there when you drag yourself out of the grave and plug it in for the centennial resurrection gig. That’s because it uses really bizarre technology that literally crams analog signals into static digital storage cells without A-to-D conversion. That’s right… THERE IS NO ANALOG TO DIGITAL CONVERSION. It’s pure analog storage, just like the old bucket-brigade technology, for 20 seconds straight. It would take 25 800ms analog delay pedals to hold the loop that this thing can play. For those of you who know how an A-to-D converter works, Zvex offers this brief explanation: Inside the big fat chip, the voltage of the analog signal is sampled thousands of times per second and stored in sample-and-hold cells. The voltages of these individual cells are transferred using a horrifying silicon machine that squirts charge (something like a caulk-gun) into digital storage cells normally designed to hold ones and zeros. When the circuitry decides that the voltage in the cell is close enough to the sampled voltage (who can predict?) it moves on to do it again. It’s like some kind of electronic Russian roulette, where the recording may or may not be accurate when compared with the original, but at least no computer ever puts its paws on the signal. Dig? There are no computers and no a-to-d conversion chips in this pedal!\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eHow does it sound? Some people compare it to a warped, damaged 45-rpm record. Some say that the compression is immaculate, while some say it destroys any concept of the original dynamic. Some say that the noise is intolerable... some say it’s as precious as snow in the middle of nowhere. Some people have no taste. Lucky for me, taste is not the issue. Zvex can promise one thing... your direct guitar will sound impeccable. They can’t promise that the loop will sound good… you’ll have to make some adjustments to your concept of “good” to be sure of that. Zvex can promise that the loop will be different from any sampler you’ve heard.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThe controls:\u003cbr\u003eVol: loop volume. Gets really loud if you need it.\u003cbr\u003eTone: cuts noise and distortion. Makes the final sound of the loop rolled off and organ-like if necessary.\u003cbr\u003eRec: record volume. You can decide how loud to drive the recorder… to overdrive if you like.\u003cbr\u003eDepth: vibrato depth. Adjust for the level of pitch twisting that makes you happy.\u003cbr\u003eSpeed: vibrato speed. Adjust for the speed that spins the sound around in a way that fits the music.  \u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThe buttons:\u003cbr\u003eOn the left: bypass. When you kick this in, the loop starts playing. When you kick it out, you have true-bypass, pure silence, just like all other Z.Vex effects.\u003cbr\u003eOn the right: the record switch. Hit this just as you start recording a new loop. Switch it off on the exact same beat when you finish recording your loop. If you’ve made a mistake, quickly hit it twice so you can hear the gentle hiss of nothingness instead of your bad loop. You can defeat this switch with the safety switch located between the two vibrato knobs. You will record silence if you hit the record button while the pedal is true-bypassed.\u003cbr\u003eAt the top right: the safety switch. This tiny switch lets you save a favorite loop so you won’t accidentally erase it, no matter what condition you might be in while stumbling over your pedal. Woo-hoo! Yee-haw!\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eRecording tips:\u003cbr\u003eWhen using a loud guitar, such as a Les Paul with PAFs, turn the record level down a bit. You’ll hardly be able to hit a chord or strike a string without overloading the delicate analog recorder otherwise. Don’t use the record volume at the highest setting unless you don’t mind a faint “pop!” at the start of each loop (which c","published_at":"2017-09-06T14:11:06-04:00","created_at":"2017-09-06T14:11:06-04:00","vendor":"Zvex","type":"Pedals and Effects","tags":["15_percent","Brand_Zvex","reverbsync-offers:off","reverbsync-shipping-profile:free 2 day","Type_Looper Pedals"],"price":28900,"price_min":28900,"price_max":28900,"available":false,"price_varies":false,"compare_at_price":0,"compare_at_price_min":0,"compare_at_price_max":0,"compare_at_price_varies":false,"variants":[{"id":45058495694,"title":"Default Title","option1":"Default Title","option2":null,"option3":null,"sku":"855245003152","requires_shipping":true,"taxable":true,"featured_image":{"id":5234372051010,"product_id":11356077710,"position":6,"created_at":"2019-05-01T15:09:54-04:00","updated_at":"2019-05-01T15:09:54-04:00","alt":"Zvex Lo-Fi Loop Junky","width":944,"height":944,"src":"https:\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2015\/7205\/products\/ZvexLoFiLoopJunky.jpg?v=1556737794","variant_ids":[45058495694]},"available":false,"name":"Zvex USA Handpainted Series Lo-Fi Loop Junky Pedal - DEMO - LAST ONE!","public_title":null,"options":["Default Title"],"price":28900,"weight":0,"compare_at_price":0,"inventory_quantity":0,"inventory_management":"shopify","inventory_policy":"deny","barcode":"855245003152"}],"images":["\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2015\/7205\/products\/ZvexLoFiLoopJunky_1461cced-9dd4-4d71-9e72-0888ccce59a1.jpg?v=1558706461","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2015\/7205\/products\/Zvex_Lofi_Loop_Junky_02.jpg?v=1558706461","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2015\/7205\/products\/Zvex_Lofi_Loop_Junky_03.jpg?v=1558706461","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2015\/7205\/products\/Zvex_Lofi_Loop_Junky_04.jpg?v=1558706461","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2015\/7205\/products\/Zvex_Lofi_Loop_Junky_05.jpg?v=1558706461","\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2015\/7205\/products\/ZvexLoFiLoopJunky.jpg?v=1556737794"],"featured_image":"\/\/cdn.shopify.com\/s\/files\/1\/2015\/7205\/products\/ZvexLoFiLoopJunky_1461cced-9dd4-4d71-9e72-0888ccce59a1.jpg?v=1558706461","options":["Title"],"content":"This is our last Zvex USA Handpainted LoFi Loop Junky, our former display model.

There are no computers and no a-to-d conversion chips in this pedal!\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eHow does it sound? Some people compare it to a warped, damaged 45-rpm record. Some say that the compression is immaculate, while some say it destroys any concept of the original dynamic. Some say that the noise is intolerable... some say it’s as precious as snow in the middle of nowhere. Some people have no taste. Lucky for me, taste is not the issue. Zvex can promise one thing... your direct guitar will sound impeccable. They can’t promise that the loop will sound good… you’ll have to make some adjustments to your concept of “good” to be sure of that. Zvex can promise that the loop will be different from any sampler you’ve heard.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThe controls:\u003cbr\u003eVol: loop volume. Gets really loud if you need it.\u003cbr\u003eTone: cuts noise and distortion. Makes the final sound of the loop rolled off and organ-like if necessary.\u003cbr\u003eRec: record volume. You can decide how loud to drive the recorder… to overdrive if you like.\u003cbr\u003eDepth: vibrato depth. Adjust for the level of pitch twisting that makes you happy.\u003cbr\u003eSpeed: vibrato speed. Adjust for the speed that spins the sound around in a way that fits the music.  \u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThe buttons:\u003cbr\u003eOn the left: bypass. When you kick this in, the loop starts playing. When you kick it out, you have true-bypass, pure silence, just like all other Z.Vex effects.\u003cbr\u003eOn the right: the record switch. Hit this just as you start recording a new loop. Switch it off on the exact same beat when you finish recording your loop. If you’ve made a mistake, quickly hit it twice so you can hear the gentle hiss of nothingness instead of your bad loop. You can defeat this switch with the safety switch located between the two vibrato knobs. You will record silence if you hit the record button while the pedal is true-bypassed.\u003cbr\u003eAt the top right: the safety switch. This tiny switch lets you save a favorite loop so you won’t accidentally erase it, no matter what condition you might be in while stumbling over your pedal. Woo-hoo! Yee-haw!\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eRecording tips:\u003cbr\u003eWhen using a loud guitar, such as a Les Paul with PAFs, turn the record level down a bit. You’ll hardly be able to hit a chord or strike a string without overloading the delicate analog recorder otherwise. Don’t use the record volume at the highest setting unless you don’t mind a faint “pop!” at the start of each loop (which c"}

It's probably exactly what you think it is: a theremin-style antenna controlling a wah, getting brighter as your foot approaches. It has one extra feature, however. There's a Super Hard-On boost circuit in front of the wah, with a knob to set the exact level of boost for driving your wah sound. It can be turned up high enough to make the wah crack up a little for that \"something's gonna blow\" sound. It gets pretty darn loud!\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eHow it works: \u003cbr\u003eThe probe circuit generates a small (one or two inches high) \"bubble\" of RF energy at about a million cycles per second above the copper plate. As your foot or hand (or any wet or metallic object, for that matter) approaches the copper plate, the RF field is disturbed and the circuit reacts by increasing the brightness of an LED, which drives a photoresistive cell and controls the Z. Vex wah circuit. The wah circuit is actually the Seek-Wah sound circuit without the sequencer control. It's also the same wah circuit as the one in The Drip guitar that I make. The only difference is the boost circuit in this Wah Probe model.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eAdjustments:\u003cbr\u003eThe simplest one of these is the volume level of the \"drive\" knob... just set it so that when you kick on the wah it's doing its stuff at the right intensity. It goes from slightly lower than the normal guitar volume to completely bonkers when turned up all the way. Zvex personally doesn't think it's necessary to turn it up all the way, in fact, it seems to pretty much obliterate the wah sound, but, to each his own. Abuse those transistors, please! \u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThe next adjustment is the RF field screwdriver adjustment on the bottom of the pedal. If you turn it in the direction of the arrow (usually to the left for that one) it will make the probe circuit more sensitive and set the \"bottom\" setting of the wah higher and higher. It's best to hold the pedal completely upside down so that the cords are dangling away from the antenna, with your hand and arm completely away from the antenna, and strum your guitar's open strings (you probably have to have it on a stand or strapped on) thru the Wah Probe. Gently adjust the RF pot with a tiny screwdriver in the direction of the arrow until you hear the wah get to the level you'd like it to be when you are not putting your foot near it. There's a region where the sound of the guitar is kind of \"muffled\" and the wah kicks in after your foot gets near the pedal, which is how i ship the unit. If you like the wah to be partway cocked into the lower wah region just park the adjustment right where you like it. As you get closer to the unit, it will wah higher. \u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eThe other adjustment isn't too intense... it's the LED current control. You can usually leave this one at exactly halfway. That's how I usually ship the unit. If you think the wah is too bright when your foot is all the way on it, just turn this control to the left to make it a little duller at the top end.

Turning it up slightly introduces lovely intermodulation distortion. Turning it clockwise narrows the waveshape into asymmetrical pulses, making the tone reedier and brassier. This also introduces an unusually smooth 'gating' action, which gives you an absolutely eerie silence between notes.\u003cbr\u003e\u003cbr\u003eAt most settings you will notice that low frequency pressure is preserved.

That is less than one-hundredth the current consumption of most 'commercial' pedals, giving this pedal about as high a battery life as you can find anywhere. In fact, if you use an alkaline battery and always unplug the input cord between sessions, you may never have to change it at all!
