Washington, NJ (May 3, 2013) -- European Musical Imports is pleased to announce the release of a new and exciting addition to the Heptode line of guitar effects: The Virtuoso Phase Shifter. The Virtuoso is a boutique recreation of the original Maestro PS-1A Phase Shifter, as used in the 1970s by keyboardist John Paul Jones (Led Zeppelin) and guitarists Steve Howe (Yes) and Ernie Isley (Isley Brothers), among many others.
Footswitches below three colorful LEDs select SLOW, MEDIUM or FAST phase. The effect ramps up or down when changing from one speed to another and like the original, sounds superb with guitar or keyboards.
The Virtuoso’s modern accoutrements include a footprint that is pedal board friendly, can be powered by either a 9v battery or AC Adapter, is true bypass and has a much improved signal-to- noise ratio.
The Virtuoso Phase Shifter will be available thru authorized Heptode dealers in the USA in mid-May. Street Price: $285
