An updated version of the company's vintage-voiced echo.

Onalaska, WI (June 19, 2019) -- Spurred on by every pedal freak’s desire to maximize ever limited pedalboard real estate, Mattoverse Electronics has released a smaller format Warble Swell Echo. The Warble Swell Echo is still a vintage voiced digital echo/delay pedal with the dynamic foot-controllable Swell feature and gooey tape like modulation. Providing echo/delay times that range from short clean slapbacks to 800ms of warm analog-esque repeats and smooth optical modulation that goes from subtle tape like flutters to seasick warbles, the smaller format Warble Swell Echo may fit perfectly in your mix.

  • Foot-controllable swell feature with swell onset control
  • Vintage echo voicing & gooey modulation
  • Intuitive controls
  • True-Bypass
  • Pedalboard friendly compact enclosure with top-mounted jacks

The Warble Swell Echo sells for $189 and will be available in limited quantities directly from Mattoverse Electronics and through the Mattoverse Electronics Reverb Shop

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.
