VFE Pedals Announces the Springboard and the Yodeler

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

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.

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.
