VFE Pedals Announces the Springboard and the Yodeler

The reverb is not created via DSP algorithms, but rather a patented network of delays with interwoven feedback paths.

Puyallup, WA (July 17, 2015) -- VFE Pedals is launching two new ambient effect pedals on Indiegogo – the Springboard echo-verb and the Yodeler delay-verb. Save $10 to $40 by pre-ordering here.

The Springboard yields lush and springy verb soundscapes from the BTDR-3H brick. This reverb is not created via DSP algorithms, but rather a patented network of delays with interwoven feedback paths that creates its own reverb category. Two feedback controls have been added to tailor both the length and tonal structure of the reverb trail. With the active EQ section, the Springboard can go from bright to brooding.

$199 Street

The Yodeler somehow crams a delay and reverb into one compact box, with independent mix level controls for each. Not only that, but an internal switch lets you choose if the reverb is in series (reverberates each delay repeat) or parallel and independent from the delay. This lets you use the Yodeler as a standard delay or reverb, as a reverberating delay, or as a reverb with infinite trails & control over the pre-delay.

Street TBA

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
