In today’s arena of delay effects, the longing for a far travelling, expansive sound and the thrill of uncharted spaces dictate the game. The FERNWEH - Multi Echo Module is the time-bending answer from JPTR FX to exactly those needs, seeing multiple switchable delays move you and your sound from your quaint earthly realms and into the sonic unknown.
This expansive delay is more than a temporal effects pedal. It is a trampoline between the unsophisticated and habitual, or the wondrous and the uncommon. Its fast response and dynamic range make it a perfect live tool for haunting sceneries and frenetic solos. The FERNWEH (Wanderlust in German) is, without a doubt, a delay pedal that wants to take you places.

The FERNWEH operates as two stacked delays that can be controlled separately, to cover your sound in a soft, atmospheric haze. This unique design allows the player to configure different time settings between the two delays, which can often result in elaborate rhythmic patterns or reverberating textures, followed by a lush trail.
In addition, FERNWEH sports a momentary switch for infinite self-oscillation and another switch to warp between time settings, switching from time A to B repeatedly. Set the time settings further apart for a rich, textured delay warping into a drenched, glistening reverb. Turn both times up and swap back and forth between the launch into space and the shattering descent back into orbit. Throughout all of this, the FERNWEH’s core sound always remains soft and familiarly vintage.
While the two delay signals are always running into each other, you can easily isolate either delay simply by turning down one of the mixes, and voilà - a straightforward delay.
However, for those of you who find yourselves looking to further push the limits of the FERNWEH, we suggest dimming the mix knob. A light boost will be engaged with the mix turned all the way up, adding some extra dirt for your sonic extravaganza. Couple this with an FX loop, for hooking up your favourite mix of other pedals internally between the two delays, helps to create even more possibilities for delayed cacophony, making FERNWEH to be in your complete time-travelling control.
This beautifully crafted and bizarre vintage style delay is hand-built with tender love and care and prepared to weird up your sound.
