US pedal company EarthQuaker has launched the Pyramids stereo flanger which features five user-definable presets, eight flanger modes, tap tempo, tap subdivision via the Rate & Tap mini-toggle, a multifunction Modify control, positive and negative feedback, and a variable Mix control.
Pyramids’ “Activate” foot-switch features EarthQuaker Devices’ exclusive Flexi-Switch technology. This relay-based true-bypass switching platform allows for momentary or latching operation, making it easier to engage the effect for individual notes or phrases.
The pedal includes stereo input and outputs which allow for a variety of routing options onstage or in the studio. Routing possibilities include: Mono in / Mono out – Mono in / Stereo out – Stereo in / Stereo out. In addition, Pyramids’ Trigger Up/Down modes allow for Side Chain Flanging, in which an external control source (drum machine, sequencer, CV) may be used to trigger the flanger while the user plays another instrument. In this configuration, the primary instrument is routed through the Right Input and Right Output while the control source is patched into the Left Input. Also, Pyramids’ Manual control may be modulated in all modes via expression pedal (sold separately).
The UK retail price will be £319.
