The "Four 40" Envelope Filter at Alpha Omega Guitar Effects

Here it is! The new "Four 40" envelope filter from Alpha Omega Guitar Effects. A vintage circuit analog envelope filter (auto wah) using the VTL5C4/2 Opto-Coupler and 4558 Op-Amp for true vintage tone. A very versatile pedal with a fixed wah selection. Switch to manual mode, add a distortion pedal into the chain, set the sweep knob to your sweet spot and you have instant classic rock vibe. Select auto mode and a clean channel for Funk and Reggae styles. Turn the level knob down and let your picking attack trigger the filter for great playing dynamic. Turn it up and just let the filter do its thing. You still can trigger the filter with pick attack but with less effort. The harder your picking attack the harder the filter hits. This is a must have pedal for any vintage tone freaks pedal board.

Delay in product update.

Please pray for Dana the owner of Alpha Omega Guitar Effects and his family. His mother was called home to be with the Lord this week. He apologizes for not updating his blog or retail site in a timely manner but needs time to get personal issues on track in these trying times. Thank You for your prayers and understanding. He looks forward to bringing you new products and updates soon.

I ran across this on Ebay today. As an effects builder I often buy used vintage pedals to get circuit ideas. I use these old circuits to replicate and modify new pedal designs. However I also need to pass on a product at price that is competitive and fair for the products I build. I would love to have a vintage Uni-Vibe but wow, how can I pass on a fair price when I would already have a starting point like this. I know I would own the pedal but its still all about cash flow. Don't get me wrong, I think its probably worth every dime this seller is asking, and some really licky but soon to be poor guitar player will get this great pedal,
but for now I will just not plan on a Uni-Vibe clone. So lets just all enjoy the picture of this great vintage pedal for now.
Please let me know if anyone who views this blog buys this I can have pedal envy.

Not much time left!

Just a quick note. I know I haven't been posting much lately. Some family stuff like anniversary's, birthdays, out of town guest and taxes have been taking up all my time. Please don't forget that our discount promotion will end on February 29th, so take advantage and save some hard earned money (look at our last post). We are going to be RAMPING UP in March and April so keep looking.
Have a great week,
Dana @ Alpha Omega Guitar Effects
