Free the Tone Unveils the Flight Time FT-2Y

Free The Tones’s high sound quality digital delay Flight Time reappears with improvements responding to strong requests from players all over the world.

Yokohama, Japan (April 25, 2017) -- Free The Tone’s high sound quality digital delay Flight Time with the world’s first Realtime BPM Analyzer and Delay Time Offset features, reappears with improvements responding to strong requests from players all over the world. For the Flight Time FT-2Y, we have redesigned not only the analog and power supply circuits but also the digital circuits and firmware to realize dramatic improvements in sound quality. While keeping all of the FT-1Y’s ample feature set, the FT-2Y has advanced in both sound quality and functionality with the addition of 3 new functions below.

Features:

  • Instrument/line level switching which enables the FT-2Y to be used with amp effect loops.
  • Instant preset switching which allows you to switch Preset 1 and Preset 2 instantly while playing.
  • MIDI out functions so that you can now save the preset data to external storage.

Flight Time carries a suggested retail price of $420.00, and can be purchased after June 23, 2017 through our North American dealers listed at: http://www.freethetone.com/en/dealer/.

Charvel’s first Guthrie Govan signature model was released in 2014, after an arduous two-year effort to get the design just right. Since then, the guitar—now in its second edition—has become one of Charvel’s most coveted models. Unfortunately, its $3,699 price keeps the U.S.-made axe out of reach for many.

This year, though, the company released the Made-in-Japan signature MJ San Dimas SD24 CM, which sells for a slightly more manageable $2,799. Needless to say, that’s not cheap. But depending on your priorities, it’s a fair price for a very high quality, pro-level instrument.

Take a moment and think of your favorite guitar solo. Can you hear it in your head, note-for-note perfect as if you were listening to the track itself? I’m willing to bet the answer is yes. Indelible guitar solos tend to get lodged in your brain that way. Every practicing guitarist not only strives to play these solos as well as the guitar heroes who composed them, but we all long to craft such a brilliant lead ourselves. The million-dollar question is: Where do you begin when attempting to play the next great, iconic solo? The next “Stairway to Heaven” or “Kid Charlemagne” or “Hotel California”?
