A few weeks back we were hanging with our pal Mason Stoops and he mentioned that Flint was one of his all time favorite pedals. We were certainly incredibly glad to hear that, but it also sparked an idea. When we released Flint a few years back we hadn’t yet started writing and recording song videos for each of our pedals. Why don’t we team up with Mason, along with one of his favorite pedals, and put together a music video demo for Flint? So that’s what we did!
Mason wrote the song and played most of the guitar parts, and his buddy Ian Maloney played both drums and bass. DSP designer Pete Celi contributed a couple guitar parts, and I stepped in with some Wurlitzer and produced it in my little recording studio. We hope you dig it.
Flint gives you the soothing, pulsating, and hypnotic effects that were pioneered in vintage amplifier tremolo circuits, along with three classic and completely unique reverb algorithms. You get the sonically complex ’61 Harmonic Tremolo, the swampy and sultry ’63 Power Tube Tremolo, and the sharp and balanced ’65 Photocell Tremolo. You also get the classic ’60s Spring Tank Reverb, the inventive ’70s Electronic Plate Reverb, and the nostalgic ’80s Hall Rack Reverb.
With eight parameters to tweak, you get extensive control over the tremolo and reverb characteristics. Go from splashy, pulsing twang, to throbbing, swampy blues, all the way to ambient, trembling, and serene reverberated pads. Couple that with true bypass, and a high quality analog front end and output section, and you have yourself the history of tremolo and reverb in a pedal-board friendly format.
