Cyclone is an all-analog phaser effect with tap tempo, voiced after classic phaser designs of the past. We set out to emulate the phasing notches – frequency shifts and the behavior of the original unit that each of the voicings is modelled after.
With the addition of extra controls, not part of some of the classic designs, a whole range of classic and non-classic uses becomes available making it an ideal texture machine with unparalleled harmonic richness.
Besides guitar and bass, it can be used on any instrument and works particularly well with classic keyboard sounds. We included an expression pedal input to control rate (speed) of the LFO that can also be set to receive clock signals (0-5V) in order to synchronize phasing speed with synthesizers and drum machines.
Place before or after your favorite overdrive pedal to create different sound effect and texture.
- 45: Voiced after a classic 2 stage phaser born in mid 70s. Add dreamy ambience to your sound with this subtle and musical effect somewhere between a warm, organic phaser and a rotary speaker effect.
- 90: Voiced after a classic 4 stage phaser from the 70s. From subtle warm, shimmering modulation to jet sounds and all-out high velocity swoosh.
- ST: Voiced after the 1st implementation of another classic 4 stage phaser design of the 70s. Stronger and dirtier mid frequency notches for a whirling and pulsating phaser effect.
- LT: Mesmerising phaser/vibrato. Voiced after a highly sought-after boutique phaser pedal that came to life during the 90s in the UK with 4 distinct phase shift notches. Takes an ideal space between a phaser and a vibe type of effect (depending on settings). Our take focuses mainly on the classic phaser/vibe, not the extreme sci-fi, sounds that were also available from the original unit.
Each unit is hand built and tested in our workshop in Athens, Greece, features true bypass switching via a high quality relay and operates with external 9V DC power supply. Max current consumption 45mA @9V DC.
