[NAMM] DigiTech Eternal Descent Lyra Pedal
The new Eternal Descent Lyra is a limited edition multi-effects pedal, inspired by a comic book and music series.
Eternal Descent is a cross-genre story that blends elements of fantasy, action, music, superhero, gothic, science fiction, supernatural and other elements into an ongoing saga featuring Lyra, the series' heroine. Lyra is a rock singer who is quick-witted, beautiful, talented, has attitude to spare - and is immersed in a battle with demons both internal and external awaiting her at every turn.
Featuring the Eternal Descent logo, distinctive Lyra graphic and a dark metallic purple finish, the DigiTech Lyra has the signature tones, sounds and effects that producer/engineer Eddie Kramer (Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Kiss and others) and his team used to record the Eternal Descent albums. Seven preset tones, from clean to moderate overdrive to crushing distortion, are available that match seven songs from the albums.
Each preset tone can be further modified by the Lyra's Gain and FX Mix knobs. When the knobs are in the 12 o'clock position, the sound matches the sound of the actual song. Turning the Gain knob left or right increases or decreases the amount of amp/distortion gain, while turning the FX Mix knob left or right increases or decreases the amount of the modulation, delay and reverb effects for each of the seven presets. A Level knob controls the output volume. The pedal has mono and stereo outputs and can be powered by a 9V battery or the included AC power supply.
Pricing & Availability
The DigiTech Lyra is expected to ship in March 2011 priced at an estimated £159 RRP inc VAT (price may be subject to change).
