Features:

  • Five selectable waveforms with symmetry control
  • True stereo
  • Tap multiply for faster tapping
  • Save and recall eight settings
  • CV I/O and Expression In for sync with other pedals
  • Selectable stages for subtle to intense effect

Designed to be versatile and easy to use. The Arctic Wolf has two footswitches, a bypass footswitch, and a multi-mode tap tempo/recall footswitch. This allows for on-the-fly recalling of settings without bending down and messing with the pedal. The Arctic Wolf utilizes a rare "pulsed switch" system to create a lush and transparent sound, different form standard LDO and FET phasers.

he Arctic Wolf retails for $349 (street $319) and is available at Dogmatek's webpage.

Luthier Maegen Wells recalls the moment she fell in love with the archtop and how it changed her world.

I had no idea that I had fallen head-over-heels in love with everything about what’s commonly perceived as a “jazz guitar.” No clue whatsoever. And, to be honest, I kind of miss those days. But one can only hear the question, “Why do you want to build jazz guitars if you don’t play jazz?” so many times before starting to wonder what the hell everyone’s talking about.
