Chase Bliss Wombtone Mk II Analog Phaser is an analog phaser pedal
with unprecedented amount of control features. The signal path of the
Wombtone Phaser is 100% analog. Each control is attached to a
microprocessor which controls the analog effect circuitry. Your guitar
signal will not be digitized inside the pedal. Digital controls make it
possible to have features that have not been possible before with analog
- Controls and connections:
Feed (Ramp): In basic settings this control acts a the feedback control for the effect, which raises the effect resonance and intensity when you turn it towards 5 o'clock. Close to 7 o'clock the sound is mild and it gets more intense and syrupy towards 5 o'clock. Highly interactive with the amount of phase stages you have selected. When one or more dip switches behind the pedal are in the "On" position this control adjusts one or several of the following parameters: volume, mix, rate, depth, form. Each of these can be set to modulate, rise or fall.
Volume: Sets output volume level. The Wombtone Phaser has an internal voltage doubler and a boost circuit so, if needed, you will get a huge amount of boost and headroom. This control can also be controlled with an expression pedal or Drive (Ramp) control.
Mix: Sets the mix between the dry and the effected signal. Goes from 100% dry to 100% wet.
RPM: Sets effect speed. A lot of range from very slow to very fast. This control can be overriden with the tap tempo footswitch.
Depth: Controls the range of the phase effect. At 5 o'clock you will get the strongest phasing.
Form: This control adjusts the center point of modulation. Close to 7 o'clock the modulation rises quickly and falls gradually. Towards 5 o'clock the rise slows and the fall gets faster. At 12 o'clock you will get a perfectly symmetrical waveform.
1-2-4 (3-6-8) switch: Sets the tap tempo subdivision. Turning the tap tempo dip switch behind the pedal to "On" position you will get options 3-6-8. You can also set the tempo for RPM or Ramping features depending on how you have the dip switches set.
Left waveform switch: Sets the waveform for the first half of the modulation cycle. Options are sine, triangle and square.
Right waveform switch: Sets the waveform for the latter half of the modulation cycle. Options are sine, triangle and square.
Expression pedal / CV input: Volume, Mix, RPM Depth and Warp can be controlled with an expression pedal. 1/4" TRS input. Can also be controlled with 0-5V control voltage.
Tap/MIDI: Can be used as a tap input or output with a regular 1/4" instrument cable.
- Power Requirements: 2,1mm 9V DC centre negative power supply or 9V battery. 50 mA.
- True Bypass (very silent switch)
