Exciting new technology

Posted by on 01 Apr 2014 | Tagged as: Uncategorized

There is a new technology going on in the forums. By feeding the right type of audio signals through resistors and capacitors, you can change their properties. Right now we have only tested 2 types of signals but the results are really promising.

1: Analog sine wave through resistors and capacitors. Results in less intermodulation and a smoother tone overall - VERY analog! 

2: The second type of signal is very old – it’s called Frequency-Shift Keying. We have found that by sending this information through the resistors and capacitors, you get more of a digital type of sound. More edgy, yet still clear – kind of like a slightly harsher digital to analog converter.

Right now, of course, this tech is in early development but the results are extremely promising. By using sockets you can remove the critical components and then solder them into your pedals. Since the components have now been “seasoned” you can use them in your pedals to get the desired tone.

Of course there are other signals we could inject but we want to keep this scientific and the results will be published shortly.

These light plates fit in between the bottom plate and the box. They provide a way to light up the edges of your pedals and make a cool lighting effect!!!!! So instead of a single LED lighting up, you see the entire border of the bottom of the box lighting up!!!!! It’s very cool. All you need to do is drill the holes on the plate and mount an LED.
