Hope For The Best But Fear The BLURST
NAMM 2017: Introducing The New BLURST Modulated Filter From Electro-Harmonix.
One of the more wacky and zany pedals out there. The BLURST Modulation Filter from Electro-Harmonix is a pedal for the sonically adventurous.
Somewhere In The Middle
Apart from standing out on your pedalboard, this pedal modulates your guitar sound like an envelope filter, but instead of the filter’s response being controlled by playing dynamics, it’s controlled by an internal oscillator. This pedal is somewhat of a blend between an Envelope Filter, meets phaser, meets tremolo.
– Features an analog low pass filter with adjustable resonance
– Three modulation waveform shapes: triangle, rising saw-tooth and falling saw-tooth
– Modulation rate is set by either the rate knob or a combination of the tap footswitch and tap divide toggle switch offering quarter, dotted eighth and triplet rhythms
– Three EXP modes, range, rate and filter, can be controlled by an expression pedal or control voltage source like EHX’s 8 Step Program Analog Expression/CV Sequencer
– Range knob sets the frequency range of the filter’s modulation, Blend control adjusts the dry/filtered signal mix
– Includes an EHX 9.6DC200mA power supply
– Dimensions in inches: 2.75 (w) x 4.5 (l) x 2.1 (h)
– Dimensions in mm: 70 (w) x 115 (l) x 54 (h)
