Vertex Introduces New Pedals

Point Richmond, CA (October 26, 2012) – Vertex Effects has announced three pedal additions to their lineup, including modifications of two existing effects. Here's the details from their press release:

Vertex Axis Wah
The Vertex Axis Wah is the finest representation of a vintage Wah-Wah pedal, designed for the most vowel-like and vocal characteristics. The Axis Wah uses a hand wound Halo inductor and hand-picked premium components to optimize the Axis Wah's distinctive voice.  The wah features a unique "BODY" control to adjust the intensity of the wah to best pair it with single-coil and humbucking pickups.  Lastly, many vintage wah pedals have been plagued with a significant volume drop when engaged.  The Axis Wah however, is carefully matched to unity gain, allowing the signal from the guitar to remain consistent whether the effect is on or off.

The features include:
• True Bypass switching
• Hand built in the USA
• Premium components
• 9VDC operation (center-negative)
• On/Off status LED

Price:  $349

Vertex Mono Volume/EXP Pedal & Vertex Stereo Volume/EXP Pedal
The Vertex Volume/EXP Pedal modification results in the most transparent passive volume pedal on the market. The modification beings with the bullet-proof platform of Boss FV-500 volume pedal, and then completely strips all unnecessary components, re-wires the potentiometer to the input and output jacks with the highest quality ribbon wire, and simplifies the circuitry to its most basic elements. The modification completely transforms the quality of the pot taper and sweep of the volume pedal and yields a very OPEN sound that interacts better with the guitar and amplifier.  Available in both stereo (low impedance) and mono (high impedance) versions.

The features include:
• 100% passive volume pedal 
• Modified in the USA
• Compatible models for mono or stereo
• Compatible models for low and high impedance
• EXP capabilities
• Premium components 
• Refined aesthetic design

Price:  $210

Vertex Landau Stereo Chorus
The Vertex Landau Stereo Chorus is the result of a modification developed with guitarist Michael Landau to re-engineer the unique sound and specifications of his original Arion SCH-1 Chorus with a few new features. The modification begins with the platform of an Arion SCH-Z, but then completely redesigns the circuit to replicate the signature sound of Michael's original Arion SCH-1 (originally a factory defect), and adds a second chorus voicing with faster chorusing speeds and greater intensity. The modification completely transforms the tonality of the mid-range and low-end and creates a more useable effect.

The features include:
• Stereo True Bypass switching 
• Mono or stereo operation
• Modified in the USA
• Premium components
• 4 controls (Rate, Depth, Tone, and Volume trim)
• 2 distinct chorus voicings
• Refined aesthetic design
• 9VDC operation (center-negative)
• On/Off status LED
