Carl Martin Vintage Series Surf Trem Guitar  ...Carl Martin – Carl Martin Vintage Series Surf Trem Guitar Effects Pedal
The Surf Trem gets its tremolo circuit from the Carl Martin Tremovibe. With just speed and depth controls (just like an old tube amp), those classic tones are easy to achieve. The Surf Trem features a retro heavy die-cast case with 9V battery compartment, cool color, and heavy-duty bypass switch. Slow and dramatic (twin peaks) For the slow song with a lot of drama in the tone, tweak the depth knob up and set the speed to match the tempo of the song. Subtle vibe To give the guitar a subtle timbre or vibe, go easy on the depth knob and set the speed fairly high. This gives a light effect that can be used very often, as it will not dominate the song with a heavy character. Chainsaw Set both the depth and speed knobs high and use together with a fairly high-gain drive for a very powerful effect.Carl Martin Tremovibe circuit Speed and depth controls Retro heavy die-cast case with 9V battery compartment Heavy-duty bypass switch

Carl Martin Octa-Switch Mkii Effects …

Carl Martin Octa-Switch Mkii Effects  ...Carl Martin – Carl Martin Octa-Switch Mkii Effects Switching System
Ok, so you have eight effects pedals which you use regularly. You use various combinations of these pedals in various songs, but you are not good at tap dancingor you are just clumsy and have (once or twice) stepped on the ultra tricked out-metalized-distortion pedal for the lead in your one ABBA cover. You have seen the digital effects controllers they use on the big stages, and have secretly yearned for one even though you may never make the big stage. Enter Thomas Guldmann’s Octa-switch II. Your eight effects plug into the eight effects-loops on the back of this unit (all true-bypass, impedance free, gold relays so you can run any of your pedals, new and old without problem), and then by turning on or off the numbered switches in each of eight DIP Bank switches, you determine which effects you wish to use simultaneously in each Bank. There is a blue LED for every effects loop used and for each Bank (so once you are programmed, when you step on Bank 6 you will see the lights of all the effects you have assigned to Bank 6 and the Bank 6 LED). The Octa-switch II has incorporated a couple new features as well! The ninth switch on the left side of the case is a BYPASS Switch which allows you to completely bypass all eight pedals and enjoy only the unaffected sound of your amplifier. There are also two External Switching jacks which allow you to use two amplifiers and/or switch channels on those amps. Once you have all the Banks programmed, we recommend placing a piece of scotch or electrical tape over each DIP (just to protect the switch from accidental switching, damage or floods like beer). There is a buffered Mono input and a stereo Output, and the unit is powered by dual 9V batteries, or by a regulated power supplylike the Big John or the Pro Power (both by Carl Martin).Blue LED for every effect and bank usedSlide type DIP switchesBuffer circuit at input Choose between 100% true bypass or buffered bypassMono send and stereo return on stereo jack plugNine switches, eight presets and one bypass

With classic guitar tone disappearing down the road of digital modeling amps and effects, Carl Martin is proud to introduce the Quattro four of the most popular Carl Martin effects in one package. The Quattro begins with Carl Martin’s award winning Compressor/Limiter circuit with single controls for compression and level. The Two-Channel Overdrive has switches for on-off and for selecting between the crunch and high-gain stages, and controls for tone and level. In classic fashion, the Vintage Chorus has a speed and a depth control. Finally, the vintage style Echo has controls for level, tone, repeat and tap-tempo, as well as an on-off switch. No hard to read screens, no menus to scroll through, just set-up and play. There is no simpler multi-effect pedals on the market! There is also an effects loop built in between the overdrive and chorus effects for that special drive or fuzz pedal that is part of your sound. You also get famous Carl Martin build quality, ultra quiet switching, a high quality on-board regulated +/-12V power supply which allows use of the finest components allowing the greatest amount of headroom, and low output impedance which leaves your amp sounding exactly like your amp.Compressor/Limiter Two-channel overdrive Vintage Chorus Vintage Style Echo

The Octa-Switch MK3 multi-effects looper lets you create banks for your effects and eliminates the tap dancing. Your eight effects plug into the eight effects-loops on the back of the unit (all true-bypass, impedance free, gold relays so you can run any of your pedals, new and old without problem), and then by turning on or off the numbered switches in each of eight DIP Bank switches, you determine which effects you wish to use simultaneously in each Bank. There is a blue LED for every effects loop used and for each Bank (so once you are programmed, when you step on Bank 6 you will see the lights of all the effects you have assigned to Bank 6 and the Bank 6 LED). The Octa-switch MK3 has incorporated a couple new features as well! The ninth switch on the left side of the case is a BYPASS Switch. This allows you to completely bypass all eight pedals and enjoy only the unaffected sound of your amplifier. There are also two External Switching jacks which allow you to use two amplifiers and/or switch channels on those amps. There is a buffered Mono input and a stereo Output, and the unit is powered by dual 9v batteries, or by a regulated power supply.Please note, the DIP switches are slide type, NOT push down. They are easily operated with a small screwdriver, a pen, or a very small finger.There is a buffered or True Bypass (non-buffered) switch at the back of the Octa-switch which you select depending on the stage set-up or your personal preference. On large stages when running long connected cables, there is a definite drop in the high end of your guitar sound (more or less depending on the input impedance of your amplifier). So the enginneers built in a buffer circuit at the input, so the user can choose between 100% true bypass, or a buffered bypass to beef up the signal.The Octa-Switch MK3 has stereo outputs as well as the stereo return on Loop 8 (this is a stereo jack with tip-left and ring-right).
