The Element is a pedal that takes back the very essence of the analogue reverb, which is obtained by physically stimulating springs thanks to the guitar signal. Simply. No artificials. No calculations. From beautiful mechanical coupled to analog signal processing. It is always a standard pedal, it is the same size as all our other pedals. You scratch it (or not) on the pedalboard. It always has an input jack, an output jack and a 9V power jack. So far, nothing new! What’s more? There’s a mini jack cable to plug on the back of the pedal. Then, it will be connected to the box full of springs (called a tank) through RCA connectors. This tank is indispensable because it is the one that allows to generate an analog effect of Reverb. Compared from other Spring Reverb that use huge boxes, the tank is detached from the pedal, and connected by a cable. Then the tank can be hidden under the pedalboard or kept on top of the board, this is up to you! Self-drilling screws are supplied with the tank to help you attach the tank to the desired location on the pedalboard. 3 sizes of tanks Le Bon, is the smallest of them, small in size but full of resources, it is amply sufficient for guitar and will save room to the point of leaving it scratched on top of the pedalboard, while admiring the beauty of moving springs! La Brute, well, that’s the middle ground! Big enough to offer lot of shpouing and make most of musicians crazy. Its average size makes it possible to fit easily under a pedalboard, right next to the pedal power supply block or on the keyboard table. It provides much more harmonics than its friend Le Bon. Le Truand, is simply out of competition! It’s the one that offers the richest sound! With endless shpouingwingwigouing! A monstrous cavity and an unusual resonance. You will have to find a place for him not far from the amp or near the pedalboard because his size is really big! This is the team’s favorite team. That’s why we decided to propose it despite its size. Settings • MIX, a pot that set the Dry/Wet ratio of the signal. Primordial for dosing the amount of reverb. At min, there is no more reverb (100% dry, 0% wet) and at max, we only have reverb (0% dry, 100% wet). • OUT, a pot that set volume of the Wet branch only. At min, there is no more reverb and at max, the reverb gains about +9dB. +18dB in SPRING SATURATION mode. • LOW, a pot playing on the 2 band active EQ, precisely on low frequency side. At min, we remove the basses completely, at max, we gain +6dB. This is very useful when you want to dose if you want big layers or just a tiny reverb on the back of the mix. • HIGH, is the same setting but for the trebles. • SPRING SATURATION, a switch to put springs in saturation mode! When switched up, the spring is intact, the signal passes normally. When switched down, the spring saturates and the output level increases significantly, you get a kind of fuzz/overdrive that comes from the spring! Pretty unique, right?
