KALEIDOSCOPE



Kaleidoscope - Multi Reflector Unit

 

If you are the kind of earth-dweller who loves to drench their chords in ambient infinitude, drown their fuzzes in a ceramic cave or even just subtly coat your rhythmic playing in a liquid swirl of overtones, then the Kaleidoscope is exactly the reverb pedal that you’ve been searching for.

 

With a medley of reflective possibilities at each turn of a knob, the Kaleidoscope is a breath of fresh air to add to the end of any pedal chain. In fact, the only downside might be that your signal chain may never sound as exciting when it's turned off!

Controls and features

Like its optical namesake, the Kaleidoscope reflects your signal, be it once or more, each duplicate meshing together harmoniously while adding compression, modulation and copious amounts of feedback frenzy to your signal. It comes equipped with controls for Volume, Compression, Feedback, Swell and Mix, ranging from the warm and haunting cloudscapes we have come to love, to an all-wet, crispy whisper with the help of the designated Kill-Dry Switch. To achieve a ramp of feedback which causes your reverb to go into self-oscillation, keep the Hold switch pressed down.

Roll back the reverb and dime the Feedback control for lush, rhythmic wobbles that twist and gyrate along to your sound beds or turn everything up for a saturated, sustained sound. The Compression Dial comes right after the reverb, which really helps to really push your tails - as the reverb fades out, the compression pulls it back up to help elevate your position in the mix.

A pedal’s musicality is fundamental at JPTR FX. So, whether you use the pedal with your guitar, bass, drums, synths or even vocals to further explore the cavernous and layered reflective depths within, the KALEIDOSCOPE was designed to complement and adapt to all manner of musical styles and input signals.

FERNWEH



Fernweh - Vintage-Voiced Dual Delay Pedal

 

In today’s arena of delay effects, the longing for a far travelling, expansive sound and the thrill of uncharted spaces dictate the game. The FERNWEH - Multi Echo Module is the time-bending answer from JPTR FX to exactly those needs, seeing multiple switchable delays move you and your sound from your quaint earthly realms and into the sonic unknown.

 

This expansive delay is more than a temporal effects pedal. It is a trampoline between the unsophisticated and habitual, or the wondrous and the uncommon. Its fast response and dynamic range make it a perfect live tool for haunting sceneries and frenetic solos. The Fernweh (wanderlust in German) is, without a doubt, a delay pedal that wants to take you places.

Controls and Features

The Fernweh operates as two stacked delays that can be controlled separately, to cover your sound in a soft, atmospheric haze. This unique design allows the player to configure different time settings between the two delays, which can often result in elaborate rhythmic patterns or reverberating textures, followed by a lush trail.

In addition, Fernweh sports a momentary switch for infinite self-oscillation and another switch to warp between time settings, switching from time A to B repeatedly. Set the Time settings further apart for a rich, textured delay warping into a drenched, glistening reverb. Turn both times up and swap back and forth between the launch into space and the shattering descent back into orbit. Throughout all of this, the Fernweh‘s core sound always remains soft and familiarly vintage.

While the two delay signals are always running into each other, you can easily isolate either delay simply by turning down one of the mixes, and voilà - a straightforward delay.

However, for those of you who find yourselves looking to further push the limits of the Fernweh, we suggest dimming the Mix knob. A light boost will be engaged with the mix turned all the way up, adding some extra dirt for your sonic extravaganza. Couple this with an FX loop, for hooking up your favourite mix of other pedals internally between the two delays, helps to create even more possibilities for delayed cacophony, making Fernweh to be in your complete time-travelling control.

This beautifully crafted and bizarre vintage style delay is hand-built with tender love and care, prepared to weird up your sound.



Internal adjustment options

- A switch inside the Fernweh determines whether the feedback loop (which is activated by the centre footswitch) passes through both delays when switched towards the input jack or only the first delay when switched towards the output jacks. Having it towards the input jack makes the effect more extreme.


Technical specs

- Hand screen printed, diecast Aluminium enclosure

- Size: 12 x 15 x 6,5 cm with knobs

- Power requirement: 9 V DC PSU (centre negative, 2.1 mm)

- Current draw: <80 mA


Please notice

Holding down the momentary switch which drives the Fernweh into self-oscillation can get extremely loud on clean amps!

Depending on what position the internal switch is in, you need to have the delays activated (mix not on zero) that are in the feedback loop for the momentary switch to have any effect. We ship them with the switch set towards the input jack so that both delays are in the feedback loop.

Also notable, when using the Fernweh into a dirty amp you get a ducking effect, making your guitar pop out with nice delay trails when notes ring out.
