MSL Pedals Releases the Night Witch

An updated take on the classic Roland AP7 Jet Phaser with a few modern features.

Oregon (November 4, 2020) -- The Night Witch Fuzz + Ramping Phaser is our take on the Roland AP7 Jet Phaser. This classic circuit has been modified and updated for today’s pedalboard without losing any of the original’s unique characteristics. Changes include expanded Fuzz controls: Volume, Tone, and Fuzz; individual true bypass footswitches for each effect; a 4 / 8 stage Depth toggle switch; and internal charge pump for standard negative tip 9vdc power supplies. The ramping footswitch will slowly speed up from the Rate control’s setting to the fastest rate possible. When disengaged it will slow down from the fastest rate to your Rate control setting acting like a two-speed Leslie. We have also included an internal trimmer to boost the phaser output to unity level. This pedal is designed for use by guitarists or bassists. The tone control is unique in that it cuts the highs while boosting the bass and vice versa. With a smaller footprint and price point, the Night Witch will provide timeless fuzz and ramping phaser tones that can be heard on classic albums that vary from the Isley Brothers to the Sex Pistols.The pedal is currently available in Teal, Purple, and Black. The Night Witch is $300 plus shipping.

  • Demonstrate a variety of drone guitar techniques and approaches.
  • Examine drone points of reference from an array of genres.
  • Learn how to use standard, drop D, and uncommon alternate tunings in drone contexts.

Playing a melody or solo with a “drone” means playing over just one note or, in some instances, one chord. Besides playing without any harmonic accompaniment, it is about as simple a concept as one can image, which also means the possibilities are endless. We’ll look at ways to use drones in a variety of contexts, from ancient to contemporary, blues to metal, traditional to experimental.
