CopperSound Announces Revamped Telegraph Pedal

CopperSound Announces Revamped Telegraph Pedal

Retaining aspects of the original design, Telegraph V2 has been updated and adorned with all-metal hardware.

CopperSound has designed a brand new Active circuit from the ground up, featuring new modes and parameters effectively impossible to attain on the original Stutter. In addition to the classic Kill and Activate modes, we are excited to present: Burst mode! Burst mode is an automatic, tremolo-like stutter, adjustable from 110 bpm to an astonishingly fast rate, set by the Burst Knob. In Burst mode, the effect can either be latched (with a quick press of the key) or momentary when the key is held. For the player that would prefer to only have momentary mode, we provide an internal dipswitch to turn off the latching feature.

Additionally - emulating aspects of the original Kill and Activate modes - the “Polarity” toggle on the side of the enclosure further enhances the possibilities of Burst mode. When Polarity is set to “Kill”, your clean signal will pass through until the key is pressed(engaging Burst). When set to “Activate”, no audio will be heard until the key is pressed, allowing for controlled bursts of sound! The rate of Burst mode can also be controlled externally by an expression pedal or synced to a CV clock source to match the tempo. This is a crucial feature for matching a given BPM in the studio or playing to a click track.

The session ace’s signature model offers a wide range of tones at the flip of a switch … or five.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. Not long ago, I came home late from a band rehearsal, still overly excited about the new songs we played. I got myself a coffee (I know, it's a crazy procedure to calm down) and turned on the TV. I ended up with an old Bonanza episode from the ’60s, the mother of all Western TV series. Hearing the theme after a long time instantly reminded me of the great Al Caiola, who is the prolific session guitarist who plays on the song. With him in mind, I looked up the ’60s Epiphone “Al Caiola” model and decided I want to talk about the Epiphone/Gibson Tone Expressor system that was used in this guitar.

Slinky playability, snappy sounds, and elegant, comfortable proportions distinguish an affordable 0-bodied flattop.

Satisfying, slinky playability. Nice string-to-string balance. Beautiful, comfortable proportions.

Embracing the idea of an acoustic flattop made with anything other than wood can, understandably, be tricky stuff. There’s a lot of precedent for excellent-sounding acoustics built with alternative materials, though. Carbon-fiber flattops can sound amazing and I’ve been hooked by the sound and playability of Ovation and Adamas instruments many times.
