SubDecay Releases Echobox

Pedal Features a Unique Noise Reduction Circuit

Newberg, OR (March 22, 2008) - SubDecay describes their new Echbox Delay pedal as registering somewhere between a digital and an analog delay, but without the coldness of the typical digital delay or the sometimes "icky" artifacts heard with analogs.

The company put plenty of intuitive and useful features into the Echo Box. According to their lit, the repeats degrade each time they are recycled but without the clicking or popping often caused by "noise reduction" compandor circuits in older delays. Instead, the Echo Box uses a discrete noise reduction circuit that was designed from the ground up. 

The natural decay mode allows the echo effect to naturally trail off after being bypassed. With this feature off, the pedal is true bypass. The modulation can be turned completely off, it can add just a little tape-like warble, or it can push your tone to near insanity. Delay time ranges from 35 to 800ms. Infinite repeats are possible, and the scaling of the repeat knob can be altered via an internal trimpot.

The Echo Box is hand made in Newberg Oregon with high quality components. It has a durable diecast metal enclosure and 3PDT switches for true bypass switching. It has a blue LED and can be powered by 9 Volt battery or DC adaptor (draws less than 100mA).

King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard started out as a “joke” band. As guitarist/songwriter Joey Walker says with a grin, “Now the joke’s on us.”

With their 26th release, Flight b741, the prog-rockers make it hard but highly rewarding for fans to keep up. Behind that drive lies a wealth of joy, camaraderie, and unwavering commitment to their art.

There’s a dangerous, pernicious myth, seemingly spread in perpetuity among fledgling artists and music fans alike, that when you’re a musician, inspiration—and therefore productivity—comes naturally. Making art is the opposite of work, and, conversely, we know what happens to Jack when there’s all work and no play. But what happens when the dimensions of work and play fuse together like time and space? What happens to Jack then? Well, behind such an instance of metaphysical reaction, undoubtedly, would be King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard.
