Product Details


The Shape Shifter is one of the most versatile tremolo pedals you will find, whether your style is a classic textural vibe or unexpectedly experimental. The Shape knob lets you control how evenly the signal rises and falls; set it in the middle for a traditional, even rise-and-fall effect, or turn it left or right for wild effects that can simulate backwards recording or the attack of an analog synth. When you’re running in stereo, the mini Phase knob lets you select whether the pedal is in phase or up to 180 out of phase, taking you from a traditional stereo effect to a swirly phase tone that effectively feels like surround-sound.


Use the Speed control or Tap Tempo foot switch to set your modulation speed from 0.5 pulses-per-second to over 15 pulses-per-second, and the Ratio/Rate mini-switch to select whether the Speed knob acts as a straight rate control or as a selector for between 1:1, 2:1, 3:1 or 4:1 speeds relative to the Tap Tempo. The illuminated Speed knob gives you an instant visual indicator of the effect speed, and it’s always flashing so you know where you’re at before you hit the effect switch.


The volume auto adjusts so you avoid the “dip” that sometimes comes with tremolo pedals. And stereo inputs and outputs mean you can get creative with your signal chain. Like all of our pedals, the Shape Shifter is True Bypass and is designed and assembled at our Santa Barbara, California factory by the same team responsible for our legendary pickups.
