Jacques Pedals Releases Trinity Wah

The pedal is a combination envelope filter, auto wah, and wah wah in one compact pedal and unique dome foot controller.

France (January 15, 2013) -- Jacques Pedals has announced a new breakthrough in the world of effect pedals, the Trinity Wah. The pedal is a combination envelope filter, auto wah, and wah wah in one compact pedal and unique dome foot controller. Modes include:

  • Classic Wah: Thanks to its dedicated dome controller, the Trinity can be used as a wah wah pedal. The unique Trinity wah tone is more vowel-like and more human than any other wah. Adjust the Q factor with the Manual knob to come back to classic wah tone.
  • Stuck Wah: Getting a "stuck wah" tone is easy on the Trinity, and control of this type of effect has never been easier - from throaty "Money for Nothing" to squealing hard rock tones.
  • Filter Wah: The Trinity offers an incredible rendition of the envelope filter tone with a complete range of controls for a dramatic effect that's usable in any setting.
  • Auto Wah: The Trinity has a full-function auto-wah with rate and depth controls, that can range to the boundaries of flanger and phasing. The foot controller can be used to slowly bypass the effect as well.
  • In Betweens: As a pure analog device, the Trinity can be anywhere between two settings.

The emotional wallop of the acoustic guitar sometimes flies under the radar. Even if you mostly play electric, here are some things to consider about unplugging.

I have a love-hate relationship with acoustic guitars. My infatuation with the 6-string really blasted off with the Ventures. That’s the sound I wanted, and the way to get it was powered by electricity. Before I’d even held a guitar, I knew I wanted a Mosrite, which I was sure was made of fiberglass like the surfboards the Beach Boys, Surfaris, and the Challengers rode in their off time. Bristling with space-age switchgear and chrome-plated hardware, those solidbody hotrod guitars were the fighter jets of my musical dreams. I didn’t even know what those old-timey round-hole guitars were called. As the singing cowboys Roy Rogers and Gene Autrey strummed off into the sunset, the pace of technology pushed the look and sound of the electric guitar (and bass) into the limelight and into my heart. Imagine my disappointment when I had to begin my guitar tutelage on a rented Gibson “student” acoustic. At least it sort of looked like the ones the Beatles occasionally played. Even so, I couldn’t wait to trade it in.
