[NAMM] Pigtronix Gatekeeper and Echolution 2
Pigtronix introduces at Summer NAMM 2013 two new guitar pedals, the Gatekeeper and Echolution 2.
The Pigtronix Gatekeeper is a noise gate stompbox that uses a J-FET circuit designed to eliminate any noise in the audio signal patch. It features two Threshold and Release controls, the Release knob will set the time the gate slams closed. Pigtronix adds that you can get up to 100% attenuation and true bypass is included.
The Gatekeeper works with the included 18V DC power supply. US price announced is $149.
Pigtronix also unveiled the new version of the Echolution echo pedal. It retains the two Tap and Engage footswitches from the original, as well as the Repeat, Mix, Preset, Depth, Time and Speed knobs, but Pigtronix completed the control panel with six new features, each with various options. You can, for example, choose the LFO waveform, select one the 5 filter types, the taps (Phi included), etc. The pedal still offers stereo operation, with two inputs and two outputs and the USB port is still present.
