NAMM '10 - Red Witch Medusa Chorus/Tremolo Demo

February 11, 2010
PG's Rebecca Dirks is On Location in Anaheim, CA, for the 2010 NAMM Show where she swings by the Red Witch Analog Pedals booth. In this segment, we get to check out two of their newest pedal offerings -- the Medusa Chorus/Tremolo and the Titan Delay.

The Medusa is a reissue of a popular pedal first built years ago by Red Witch's creator Ben Fulton. Upon popular demand, they re-released the Medusa which is a Chorus and Tremolo pedal that can work as either or a combination of the two.

The Titan Delay is an analog delay pedal with not one, not two, but three completely independent delay units. The Titan's triumvirate of time tantalizers allows you to create an array of truly unique and original delay sounds. Voiced for the ultimate analog styled sound, the Titan provides three 800m/sec delays. They use the classic analog delay compander to ensure the ultimate recreation of an analog flavored delay, which works hand in hand with their more contemporary delay engines.
