Roger Mayer / Voodoo-Blues / 2012 / Effect Pedal
The Voodoo-Blues is a dual purpose guitar pedal with clean sustain and overdrive. It can be set to provide both overdrive and clean boost and uses an unique circuit to produce a very musical set of overtones with feedforward compression as it slips into overdrive.
"I have over the years repeatedly refused to make an updated copy or clone of the Tube Screamer because I personally was never happy with its nasal tone and lack of detail and dynamics. A new innovative design approach was needed to make a unique product that would be a significant improvement. The Voodoo-Blues is the result. A unique new guitar effects pedal that uses a completely different circuit to produce a set of very musical overtones with feed forward compression as it slips into overdrive. The full dynamics and detail of the guitars tone are faithfully preserved and the unit cleans up perfectly with the guitar Volume control.
I urge you to compare the Voodoo-Blues with any type of overdrive pedal for you to "experience the difference" and not agree that it does its job beautifully and gives the discerning player an alternative for those who demand this type of overdrive. Our "Forward Ever - Backward Never" approach to effects design has fuelled our success since 1964 and has enabled us to move the goal posts forwards again setting new benchmark standards. "
The output level is high enough to drive the 1st Stage of Tube Amplifiers into distortion if required and the Fatness control does what it says and is not just a simple EQ section.
Don't imagine that it can only be used for Blues as its characteristics lend itself very well to Rock and Country as well.
MULTI-MODE OUTPUTS / HARD WIRE BYPASS/ TWO BUFFERED OUTPUTS :The Voodoo-Vibe Jr has a true hard wire output plus two buffered outputs that can drive long cable lengths with no high frequency loss. These buffered outputs are disconnected when the hard wire output is being used. This means that all performance situations are catered for whether you want a true hard wire output or your situation calls for the advantages of buffered outputs.
RAPID BATTERY CHANGE :No more screws to loose!. Slide the front panel back and there is the battery. It could not be simpler or faster.
BATTERY LIFE :50Hrs or more using a premium grade alkaline 9 Volt type.
EXTERNAL POWER ADAPTER / SUPPLY :An external AC adapter (not supplied) can be used and access is through a standard DC power jack situated next to the jack sockets. It uses the standard negative centre pin connection protocol used by many leading manufacturers. Internal onboard filtering ensures that optimum low noise performance is maintained and diode protection provides peace of mind in case or polarity setting mistakes.
ERGONOMIC DESIGN :The position of the jack sockets and DC power jack are all on the same side of the enclosure and face away from you thus enabling the effect to be optimally positioned in pedal board set-ups.
Size: Width 170 x Depth 112 x Height 57mm. Weight: 640g with battery.
