Big Ear Pedals introduced ALBIE an ambient modulator pedal. It is priced at $199.00 and can be ordered now. Big Ear Pedals will be shipping out ALBIE as soon as they can, but you should expect 2 to 4 weeks for delivery. All Big Ear Pedals are assembled by-hand in the USA.
ALBIE is an ambient modulator featuring eight settings specifically built and curated to cover the jangly, shimmering, modulated sounds associated with the New Wave & Post Punk music of the ’70s and ’80s.
ALBIE has two knobs, “Effect” and “Blend.” The “Effect” knob allows the user to change between eight different pedal-chains or “stacks” of effects (the LEDs light up with the corresponding effect). These effects chains consist of several kinds of modulation as well as reverbs and delays, even some compression. The “Blend” knob mixes the chosen effect setting into the clean-tone of the guitar, making this pedal especially perfect for those with option-paralysis.
The clicking momentary footswitch operates like a standard footswitch, but when held down provides a secondary setting for each effects chain. These extra settings are called the “Neil Modes” – named after Neil Graham of Dr. Scientist who programmed the code for ALBIE, as well as these secondary settings. These modes can be accessed with latching functionality, meaning they will stay on even after lifting your foot off the footswitch!
ALBIE does not contain a battery snap and requires a 9v (111ma minimum) power supply with a 2.1mm barrel connector (negative center). This pedal does not come with a power adaptor. Big Ear Pedals recommends using an isolated DC power supply.
