JPTR FX Unveils the Fernweh Multi Echo

A dual delay that gives you up to 450ms of delay time.

Wilhelmshaven, Germany (February 27, 2018) -- Ever wondering how to travel through time? With German engineering on your side, the Fernweh by JPTR FX can defy logic and explore the limits of our sonic landscape.

Two stacked delays can be controlled separately to cover your sound in a soft haze. Different time settings will result in elaborate rhythmic patterns or spring reverb-like textures followed by a lush delay. For your noise needs you will find a momentary switch for infinite self-oscillation and another momentary switch for altering the time settings. But be careful, unqualified use may cause anomalies in space-time!

Features:

  • Status-LED for each delay time
  • Max. delay time 450 ms
  • Hardware True Bypass
  • +9V power supply and standart DC input
  • Expression IN for BOTH repeat and time traveling
  • 2x Mix / 2x Time / 2x Feedback and an alternate Time Control time A/B for delay 1  / Repeat oscillation intensety with switch
  • Lifetime warranty
  • Handmade in Germany

Designed and build in JPTR FXs custom shop in Germany, the Fernweh is available for 259 € at www.reverb.com/de/brand/jptr-fx or www.jptrfx.com/pedals/.

A bone nut being back-filed for proper string placement and correct action height.

It doesn’t have to cost a lot to change your acoustic guitar’s tone and playability.

In my early days, all the guitars I played (which all happened to be pre-1950s) used bone nuts and saddles. I took this for granted, and so did my musician friends. With the exception of the ebony nuts on some turn-of-the-century parlors and the occasional use of ivory, the use of bone was a simple fact of our guitar playing lives, and alternative materials were simply uncommon to us.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
