I'm very excited to announce the newest addition to the Sonus Fluxa line. The Page of Wands is a free spirit, embodying exploration and transformation. He goes beyond his limitations.
This is a delay pedal with a unique random modulation. The variety of sounds that come out of this thing are pretty amazing, from subtle warbles to aggressive jumps in pitch and volume. See for yourself.
I found myself searching for a delay pedal that had modulation that didn't just go up and down, back and forth. I wanted something that leapt from here to another astral plane, and came back unannounced with gifts of esoteric knowledge. As far as I know, this pedal didn't exist in the capacity that I desired, so I sought to create it myself.
The heart of the character is the random modulation source. Normal modulated delays have a wave that tweaks the delay time as it ebbs and flows. This pedal has multiple waves vying to shape the delay, all at slightly different rates, which produces a random effect.
The delay time and modulation depth controls on this are very interactive. On one end you can have an eerie reverb that can trail off indefinitely. On the other end, you have a choppy delay that asserts itself and then recedes, only to come back again stronger.
The shape of the modulation wave form can also be switched between a sine wave for smoother textures, or a square wave for more dramatic shifts.
One last thing to point out about the circuit: the tone and feedback controls are also interactive. As you roll back the tone, the feedback increases. As you can see, from the drum segment at the end, I'm having a lot of fun live tweaking it.
These weirdos are now available from my store! As always, everything hand made. Hand drilled enclosure, hand etched PCB, put together by hand.
I'm already hard at work on the next addition to the family, which should be ready soon. In the meantime, let me know what you think!
