FLEXeFX has started a new Kickstarter campaign to help fund a new innovation in guitar pedals, the Foot Wheel.
Charleston, SC (February, 19, 2013) -- FLEXeFX has re-imagined the guitar effects pedal or “stomp box”, and is proud to announce the launch of their Kickstarter.com campaign.
“We live in the Golden Age of guitar pedals with nearly 600 new guitar pedal companies launching in the past 2 years. However, none of them addressed the fundamental short- coming that plagues the pedal’s housing - the inability to change their sound, on the fly with their feet. FLEXeFX pedals solve that problem.” - William Gadol, FLEXeFX President. “FLEXeFX pedals allow the player, real-time, dynamic control over the parameters of their guitar pedal tones which allows for greater expression and artistic creativity.”
Each FLEXeFX pedal features two large wheels that are mounted on either side of the pedal. Each wheel is connected to a potentiometer that controls a single setting on the pedal. For the Delay pedal, the wheels control Mix and Feedback. For the Tremolo pedal, the wheels control Speed and Depth. For the Reverb pedal, the wheels control Mix and Dwell. FLEXeFX is also introducing a Dual Expression pedal with Tap-Tempo and a Mixer pedal. The Mixer’s wheels blend between 2 separate effects loops and blend between wet and dry. The Mixer gives players a level of tonal flexibility that will cause players to completely re-think the capabilities of their existing pedals. The FLEXeFX video on Kickstarter.com demonstrates these pedals brilliantly.
FLEXeFX wheels come with mechanical stops which allow the user to set the wheel’s upper and lower thresholds. These stops act as manual presets and prevent the wheels from traveling past their desired positions. A US Patent has been awarded to FLEXeFX, Inc.
