Diamond Guitar Pedals

The new Diamond Vibrato is a dedicated pitch vibrato design using bucket brigade analog delay technology for true pitch modulating vibrato. In addition the pedal also offers analog chorusing via the Chorus control to blend a variable amount of dry signal with the effected signal.

We've included 2 mini-toggle switches on the Vibrato. The 'JAZZ' switch darkens the tone of the effect offering a more 'vintage' flavor. The 'HIGH' toggle switches to a higher depth range for more extreme pitch bent sounds.

Expression control of depth, and speed for on-the-fly adjustment and special effects. Mono true bypass operation. Extended headroom 15V internal voltage rail operation. NOS MN3007 bucket brigade delay chips.

Please note: The Diamond Vibrato is a true vibrato - not a Univibe (phase shifter) or a tremolo (often incorrectly referred to as vibrato). The terminology can be confusing to say the least!

For fun, here are some pics of the guts of the original prototype Vibrato. Ugly!

Check out the rewired IC... LOL...
