Boutique pedal manufacturer Heavy Electronics presents Radio Havana, a sonic-deconstruction-oriented stompbox aimed at providing a tone reminiscent of a small transistor radio - tinny with washed frequencies.
Don't let its name mislead you, this box does not deliver 6-hour-long political speeches but rather seeks the odd frequencies and pushes them to the forefront. Gain knob does not only deliver overdrive but also increases interactivity between frequencies, sometimes even allowing notes to oscillate between each-other. Radio Havana uses ceramic capacitors (among other techniques) to accentuate grit and overall signal degradation. The Voltage Starve circuit, found within all of the Heavy Electronics Series One pedals, allows the user to adjust the voltage all the way down to .1 Volts. In application with the Radio Havana, the Voltage Starve circuit accentuates the core function of the pedal as a whole. This looks interesting especially for breakdowns, but also for use with bass and baritone guitars.
