  • Coppersound Pedals Labyrinth ********** (stab: SD Warp Drive)

    • Routing pedal built to work with anything involving an FX loop

    • Some reverb/delay pedals have loops that allow you to stick external effects into the repeats, but then you can’t use that external pedal normally

    • Labyrinth allows you to route that external pedal normally, or through an FX loop

    • EXP and THRU modes. THRU is normal signal chain operation, EXP is the loop.

      • Think, blown out speakers, overdriven tape, amp sag, fuzzzzzzy OD

      • Multiple JFET gain stages

      • “Crackle” function is envelope controlled drive. Play harder, get more dirt. Can be momentarily engaged/disengaged

    • Mini is based on the FUCK, but smaller, and slightly different so they can work well together

      • Same JFET build, but now has extra bass and a bass cut knob for wider range

    • Pretty Years

      • High gain subminiature tube fuzz/distortion. Has lowpass filters that also shape texture of the distortion.
