The pedal lets you choose between digital and analog-simulated versions of normal, ping pong, reverse and reverse pong delay types.

Santa Barbara, CA (May 10, 2017) -- Seymour Duncan, a leading manufacturer of pickups, pedals, and power amps, announces the Andromeda Dynamic Delay, a digital delay that employs the same Dynamic Expression technology found in the Catalina Dynamic Chorus to let you control certain effect parameters with your picking strength.

The Andromeda lets you choose between digital and analog-simulated versions of normal, ping pong, reverse and reverse pong delay types, while Dynamic Expression can be applied to the Mix, Modulation or Saturation parameters so you can vary the intensity of these effects in real-time simply by changing your picking strength.

A Tap Tempo footswitch and a Tap Value control let you quickly sync your echo repeats to the song, and the Andromeda can also store your presets for easy recall or be controlled via MIDI. It has stereo inputs and outputs, and you can decide whether the repeats cut off immediately when you hit the Bypass switch or trail off naturally. The Tap/Presets switch also has a Hold For Freeze function that gives you a further level of interaction during live performance.

“We created Andromeda to sound amazing and solve a few unique problems for delay users,” says Seymour Duncan SVP of Products & CRO, Max Gutnik. “First, nobody likes paging through layers of menus to find key features inside an LCD or LED display, so we put all of Andromeda’s features and functionality on to the surface of the pedal.”

“Second, players want the ability to create different colors and textures with their delay tone. So we provided both analog and digital delay palettes with a lot of tone-shaping functionality that can easily tweaked and shaped to taste. And finally, Dynamic Expression’s ability calibrate how much effect you’re getting based on your playing intensity is huge. It’s almost like having a virtual engineer riding the effects mix for you. When players get a hold of Andromeda and see how much it can enhance their performance, I think they’re going to be stoked.”

With Andromeda, digital delay is finally given the same natural interactivity and intuitiveness as effects like overdrive and wah-wah. Delay is no longer just an ambient effect that follows your guitar sound - it can also become an integral part of your performance.

Walrus Audio is a prolific builder, but, as the five reverb pedals in their lineup suggest, they have a real affinity for manipulating time and space. The beauty of the Slötvå reverb (which is derived from the company’s very similar Spin FV-1 chip-based Slö reverb) is how satisfying and simple it makes dramatic shifts between time/space textures.

With such a flashy flame top, the Silvertone 1445 was built to catch the eyes of department store shoppers.

I don’t know what’s going on lately, but I’m breaking down all over and my shoulder is the latest to crumble. When I was a kid I would practice guitar in my bedroom near a radiator with an ungrounded amp plug and I’d get a zap right through my guitar and into my hands. Well, my shoulder pain is like that now, only without the cool story of rock ’n’ roll survival. I simply woke up one day like this. After a few weeks of discomfort, I figured I’d try out a new pillow, since mine are flattened like a wafer. I ventured out to the mall and, much to my sadness, saw the local Sears store shuttered, with weeds growing up from the sidewalks and concrete barriers blocking the large glass doors. I know I don’t get out much, but, man, was I sad to see the Sears store I’d known since childhood closed-up like that. My wife was laughing at me because apparently it had been closed for some time. But since I seem to exist on a separate timeline than most folks, it was all news to me.
