Magnetic Effects Introduces the Electrochop

A versatile trem circuit that includes tap tempo and 10 different waveforms.

London, England (November 12, 2019) -- Magnetic Effects are pleased to release the Electrochop tremolo.

The Electrochop is a versatile optical tremolo.

A wide range of tremolo sounds from vintage to modern are available with a set of controls that are easy to use yet offer many options. The Electrochop excels at subtle, smooth tremolo sounds as well as choppy sounds or pattern type tremolo sounds.

The Electrochop has a total of ten waveforms which can be selected with the wave Control. Waveforms include Ramp Up, Ramp Down, Square, Triangle, Sine.

Speed settings range from super slow to frenetically fast. The rate of the tremolo can be controlled with either the speed control or an external tap tempo footswitch. The multiply control selects the tempo multiplier. (Quarter note division) This allows you to tap a wide range of speeds easily as well as expanding the range of the speed control.

A volume control allows you to compensate for any perceived volume difference that can occur when using tremolo.

An LED located next to the foot switch indicates the speed and depth setting of the pedal in both bypass and active modes. The LED colour changes to signify whether the pedal is active or bypassed.

Great tone and features make the Electrochop a worthwhile addition to any pedalboard.
