Limited Edition Bellwether
Posted on 11 January 2017
The crowd is angry, tired, hungry. But a passionate hope stands as they rebel against the totalitarian society that has plagued them for so long now. A flame now stands as a signal of hope. A rebellion has started. The bell tower that once stood for freedom, will once again ring for change.
We're kicking off the new year with a special limited edition version of the Bellwether Analog Tap Tempo Delay. Limited to only 30 units, our warm, lush, delay has been made even hotter. The enclosure has been changed to a glossy teal blue and topped with dark blue, red and cream ink. Grab one today before they get burned up!
The Bellwether is a bucket brigade delay pedal with tap tempo. Offering analog circuity and up to 1000ms of lush delays, the Bellwether ushers in a rich soundscape of long and short trails. It can achieve the warm saturated sounds found in delays like the Maxon AD999 and the coveted Boss DM-2. Inversely, the repeats can also be brightened up with the tone control for more pronounced rhythmic delays. The Analog Chorus Engine allows you to manipulate the depth and rate of the chorus effect applied to your trails; creating a deep soundscape of ambient modulation. Set the time and repeat controls low to get that classic western slap back sound or drag them out to achieve shoegaze perfection. Take it all the way to 10 to achieve a self-oscillating delay.
Four tap division options are offered to control the rhythm of your repeats: quarter notes, eighth notes, dotted eighth notes, and triplets. Expression control options are offered to swing either the time or repeat controls back-and-forth. Manipulate the time control to get that Johnny Greenwood oscillation or use it on the fly to manipulate the repeat control; adding long tails to your diamonds.
