MGR/Baked's review"Electro-Harmonix Zipper Envelope Follower"

Electro-Harmonix Tube Zipper
Got it used from music store for $200. I got it cause i collect filters.

The sound. It is by far the best sounding envelope filter you can put on a guitar.


Old skool, very tempermental.

Handtraced circuits very EH 70 wich lots of analog love.

This box is the best filter you can find.... forget the mutron III, ibanez AF-9, Line 6 FM4, all of them. I know cause they all sit in a box. Here it used with my band www.freshlybaked.com

mooseherman's review"Fat-sounding Envelope filter"

Electro-Harmonix Tube Zipper
This is an envelope filter made by Electro-Harmonix, which is one of my favorite pedal manufacturers. It basically works like an auto-wah or other envelope filter but it has the addition of real tube distortion, which gives it a bit of an edge, and helps make the effect sound fuller and more pronounced while also retaining some of the punch of the original effect.
It has two 1/4" connections and a 9V adapter input (it also can use a 9V battery).

UTILIZATION

This actually has quite a bit of parameters that can be adjusted. The resonance knob controls the size of the filtering effect. The frequency knob adjusts the range of the frequency that the pedal will effect. The Sensitivity knob controls the amount of the effect.
Underneath these are the master volume, drive, and input gain controls, all of which affect overall volume as well as the amount of extra distortion thrown in. This will give you a far bigger amount of tonal options and also help dial in the right tone.
There is also a switch for the envelope that has "up" and "down" settings, which will give you a higher or lower response, as well as two different modes "trill" and "tron" which will make the pedal behave differently.

SOUND QUALITY

I really like the sound of this pedal. It's got a really cool, quirky, funky vibe to it. In fact, it really does give you a classic George Clinton/Parliament-esque vibe that is really cool. It can go everywhere from a light coloring of the tone to a full on squiggly, funky assault. You can make it sound like it's not even a guitar! There's also the possibility of running it straight as a distortion pedal, which is cool but ultimately not its strongest suit. There's a whole lot of tonal variety. I think the tube really fattens up the sound nicely, which makes it a lot more useful and relevant to the guitar than ordinary envelope filters tend to do.

OVERALL OPINION

I like this pedal a lot. It's a little on the pricey side, but it's honestly better than a lot of the automatic envelope filters out there. While I do prefer to use a pedal that has a rocker (like a wah), this one has such good tone that that is easily overlooked. Definitely not for everybody, but really cool for those who do like it, this is a really great pedal and a stellar addition to the EHX lineup.

redpill's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)" I miss you!"

Electro-Harmonix Tube Zipper
a filter based on the envelope tube. Marriage of a bandpass filter and a distortion-tube.

UTILIZATION

simple? the roles of each knob is marked on the pedal. Some may be obscure but use it to realize what they can do.

Fuck the south and digital in there would make no sense. And clearly does not give the same price in outlet store.

the particular choice of the power supply connector is made exprés. This is no way to blaze a supply (pipe = big energy consumption) way. So not the guys at EHX are not stupid, it is even quite the opposite!

SOUND QUALITY

This wedding was a tube distortion and a filter envelope is evil! That hand in every sense, one could almost say that it is alive. It does not go unnoticed.
Others are more discreet its possible course.
it works better alone facing the entrance of the amp rather than a pedal.

OVERALL OPINION

It's been a while since I did more. Traded with a boss PH2. Well I bitterly regret every day!

Not easy to use, certe! completely branque a goodly! but totally endearing and once part or realize she was great!

Therefore not sought not very expensive, I think I'll take one and this time the preserve.
