“Digital brain, analogue heart”, says the motto of the brand Chasebliss Audio, whose pedals have been looking spectacular in the maxi Smart Track pedal board that we have displayed in our booth during the days of the winter NAMM Show. This brand, which offers the perfect mix between analog and digital pedals, has lined up in the world of effects pedals as a boutique firm, with very personal designs and a very characteristic and well defined corporate identity.
During the NAMM Show, the American brand opted for the Fasteners system, which is part of the Smart Track pedal board, to display their new effects pedals without having to stain them with adhesives nor altering their surface and design. Two of their new releases are the Brothers and Warped vinyl MKII which we could see closely!
"Chasebliss Audio offers the perfect mix between analog and digital pedals"
Brothers & Warped vinyl MKII
Brothers: the biggest release of this winter NAMM Show is a pedal developed together with Resonant Electronics. The Brothers is the overdrive that any love of classic saturations and distortions would wish to have on their pedal board. From a clean and smooth crunch to a wild fuzz, this pedal offers all the combinations. The circuit contained by this pedal recreates six different models of drives, boosters and fuzzes, in addition to offering the ability to mix. All of this results in 33 signal routing, which makes it really easy for the perfect drive to be found with this pedal.
Warped Vinyl MKII: this pedal goes far, far beyond recreating the sound of an old vinyl, which was the starting point to develop this device. Without a doubt, it is the most versatile, characteristic and fun analog vibrato and chorus pedal we have ever tried. As in all its catalog, the Warped Vinyl MKII consists of an analog pedal with digital controls in all its parameters. The sonic and creative possibilities are inexhaustible.
In a very short time, Chasebliss Audio stands as one of the benchmark brands within the boutique market. All of this is largely thanks to the perfect combination of digital control and analog circuitry on your pedals. Some effects, such as the Tonal Recall or the Warped Vinyl were highly demanded and no one so far had put them up for sale. If we add a compact but very versatile design and the great quality of its sound, careful to the extreme, they make every guitarist, bass player or keyboardist want to have this brand on their pedal board.
