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, 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!
However, this isn't just any ordinary big reverb in a pedal. 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.
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.
· Textural Reverbs - from subtle spring-like tones, to vast ambient soundscapes and anywhere in between
· Compression Dial - add everything from subtle presence, to walls of distorted reverb
· Hold Switch - momentarily increases reverb feedback, for sustaining ethereal textures
· Kill-Dry Switch - instantly disappear into a pool of ambience by removing your dry signal with a single press
· Powered by regular 9 V DC PSU
(centre -, 2.1 mm, <120 mA current draw)
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 helping to elevate your seat in the mix. At the same time, 3 separate control stages offer you instant shifts in depth, texture and oscillation, 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.
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.
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.
· Vintage-voiced Dual Delay - from classic rhythmic tape-like echoes to otherworldly cascading dreamscapes
· Warp Switch - instantly jump between two different delay times
· Feedback Switch - hold to momentarily max out feedback, for walls of rolling ambience
· FX Loop - allows you to add other pedals internally that helps to create and expand upon your very own delay tones
· Powered by regular 9 V DC PSU

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 and prepared to weird up your sound.
