Mile End Effects Launches the JULEP

The JULEP stereo panner/phaser is based on the Ibanez FP-777 Flying Pan and offers variable waveform sculpting and independent depth controls.

The effect is affectionately named after a beloved Montreal landmark known as Gibeau Orange Julep or more recognizably “The big orange on Decarie Blvd." From syrupy, frothy vibe effects to dizzying, choppy, stutters, the Mile End Effects Julep is by concept a semblance of the infamous Ibanez FP-777 Flying Pan, but functionally and electronically, it is an expansion on the idea.

This optical stereo panning and phasing effect gives a wide variety of sounds with variable waveform sculpting, independent depth controls for both left and right channels, a vast sweep in panning rate from a slow crawl to a worried tremble, and a subtle, vintage voiced phaser that at certain depth settings will take you into rotary simulation/uni-vibe territories and viscous swirls. The Julep requires 100 mA at 9VDC with the typical 2.1mm center negative power supply connector. It is also True Bypass.


  • Variable sine wave, square wave and everything in between tremolo/panning

Kenny Greenberg with his main axe, a vintage Gretsch 6118 Double Anniversary that he found at Gruhn Guitars in Nashville for a mere $600. “It had the original pickups, but the finish had been taken off and the headstock had been repaired. So, it’s a great example of a ‘player’s vintage instrument,’” he says.

On his solo debut, the Nashville session wizard discovers his own musical personality in a soundtrack for a movie that wasn’t, with stops in Africa and Mississippi hill country.

Kenny Greenberg has been Nashville’s secret weapon for decades. He’s the guitarist many insiders credit with giving the Nashville sound the rock ’n’ roll edge that’s become de rigueur for big country records since the ’90s. It’s the sound that, in many ways, delivered country music from its roots to sporting events.
