  • Mr Black Tunnelworm TZF

    I'm realizing I'll never find an affordable FoxRox Paradox and I'd love to have a through-zero flanger.
    Saw the Mr Black (Jack Deville) Tunnelworm Flanger does through-zero.
    Anyone have an experience with this pedal yet?
    I'm tempted.

    Whoa, didn't even know about this pedal. Figured I bump this 'cuz I'm interested, too. I wonder if it goes 100% wet....doesn't look like it since it doesn't have a mix/blend? I want those Goodhonk tones!

        Just started shipping Friday! Here's a little video with some sounds:

          Jack- I have listened to that clip many a times. Very Nice!

          Just some standard questions-
          -can it do Police/Rush/etc? (non-TZ flanging?)
          -any experience with it in an fx loop? (my Suhr Badger just has a simple loop- no volume/blend/level controls and I don't think it is a tube-buffered loop)
          -do you need to run some dirt into it to really get the TZF?
          -how many mA does it need? (or can you safely say less than 100mA?)

            In order of appearance:

            -Yes. Turn the Zero knob to noon.

            -As long as your FX loop isn't kicking out a 20V P-T-P signal you'll be fine and it'll sound excellent. This is how I use it.

            -No. If you want the really dramatic vacuum-crazy-inside-out-blackhole sound, dirt helps, but it isn't required. TunnelWorm's algorithm includes dynamic regeneration to ensure the signal fully cancels at the zero point. Clean or dirty.

            -TunnelWorm needs a little less than 60mA. Impedance specs and control operations are detailed in the owner's manual.

              Saw/heard it briefly at the Kent Guitar show yesterday. Sounded pretty awesome.

              Pretty sure Mr. Black had the loudest booth there for a while!

                hopefully it has a higher headroom than the mod zero

                          Through Zero Flanging.



                          >>>

                          The common electronic flanging effect is accomplished by mixing one delayed signal with the original undelayed signal. As such, one of the signals is unaltered in time, while the other signal is alternately delayed behind the original and then speeded back up to produce the effect. In analog tape flanging, first one signal is delayed (by slowing down one of the tape machines by pressing the flange), then the other signal is slowed down (by pressing the flange of the other tape machine) to "catch up" with the delayed one, "passing" through the point of perfect time alignment (the "zero point") and continuing to slow down, thus becoming itself the delayed signal. This effect is sonically much more dramatic than simple one-track flanging. Zero-point flanging (also known as "through-zero flanging") can't be easily replicated by simple digital delay circuits because both signals are progressively slowed down one after the other and before long the delay time limits of the circuits are reached

                            I still don't get it. Sounds like other flangers I've heard. Do they all do this?

                              its just that one part of the sweep where it sounds like its getting sucked up then spit back out the other side of a singularity

                              not really something you'd need often but its a neat trick

                              Like I said the flanger hoax does TZF better than any other I've heard along with a million other crazy sounds
