The Bleak District Electric RecHead V2 is an update using cassette tape-style modulator pedal, replicating the tape saturation, flutter and lo-fi organic character of this good-old physical media.
What's New with the RecHead V2?
The main difference between the original and the V2 is that in this new version, the circuit used to follow the guitar envelope is different, allowing for a much stronger effect even when playing very gently.
The Character control gives a different range of saturation and tone combined, while the dry signal is now just on or off, rather than a blend control.
RecHead V2 Controls
Sensitivity - At its heart is an envelope following vibrato; sensitive to how soft or hard you play, which can be fine-tuned using the Sensitivity control. The harder you play (and the higher the Sensitivity), the more it bends the pitch, giving some really dynamic wow/vibrato effects.
Character - The Character control combines tape saturation and tone in one. Anticlockwise is clean and jangly, while clockwise gets woolly and more saturated.
Tape Return - Controls the amount of emulated signal going to the output. This is the overall volume of the effect if no dry signal is present.
Kill Dry - The Kill Dry toggle switch lets you have either a completely wet signal for tape emulation and dynamic vibrato sounds, or a combination of wet and dry signals for lo-fi sounds, thick chorus and wide doubletracked effects.
