The effects box features four independent modulation sections – Vibrato, Flanger, Chorus or Phaser. The Depth knob lets you set the amount of the effect while Feedback controls the resonance of the Flanger and Phaser.

  1. Damn, that’s like a killer synth module. Electro-Harmonix gear is endlessly inventive, like the early-synth days of anything goes. Its one of the Top 5 destinations for guitarists who want to trick things out, but a lot of their tools are good for keys and other instruments, too. I’m afraid that if you link 15 of them together, you’ll get Skynet. :O
