Long Island City, NY, August 21, 2012 – Hot on the coattails of EHX’s revolutionary wah pedal, the Crying Tone, the brand new Talking Pedal brings vocal expression to the guitar player (no plastic tube or mic’ required). The pedal uses the proprietary design shared by all of EHX’s Next Step Effects.
As with the Crying Tone Wah, the Talking Pedal is completely free of moving parts including potentiometers and switches that can wear out and require replacing. The pedal also features the same smooth rocking chassis for exceptional control and bypass switching that is completely silent.
Like a wah, the Talking Pedal is a rocking filter-type pedal, but the similarities end there. The tone of the pedal is unlike a traditional wah because it passes the guitar signal through 2 bandpass filters that give the tone a male vocal quality and create a selection of vowel-like sounds.
Additionally, a specially designed fixed fuzz circuit can be blended in to the player’s taste with a scroll wheel located on the side of the pedal. This circuit was added to enhance the definition of the effect and add growl and grind to the pedal while used without additional effects.
With its state-of-the-art design and unique sound, the Talking Pedal will inspire musicians with tones worth talking about. The Talking Pedal will ship in September 2012, comes equipped with a 9 volt battery (accepts optional AC adapter) and carries a U.S. List Price of $121.20.
