WHETSTONE v2 ANALOG PHASER & MODULATOR

$275.00

Another Blackout classic and a “Best Of…” industry pick in the analog modulation category!

The vintage sound of an analog OTA-based phaser melded with contemporary parameters out the wazoo. From classic and not-so-classic sounds, subtle and over-the-top phase tones, mellow through seasick pitch vibrato, ringmod, glitchy octave effects, and outright strange phased/autowah/tremolo hybrid sounds you won’t find anywhere else. No doubt the Whetstone can do things that your current phaser can’t.

STANDOUT FEATURES |

  • Killer old school analog phase tones
  • The slowest phaser cycle you’ve ever heard (1 minute; peak-to-peak at slowest setting of PADS mode)
  • Quasi-rotary, pitch vibrato, low pass tremolo, ring mod, cocked-wah, and uni-vibe tones also on tap.
  • Speed Ranges: Normal, Pads (super long), Ring (super fast/ringmod), Fix (kills LFO, manual filter adjustment with Rate)
  • Too many combinations to list. Tweaker’s paradise.
  • Try it at 18V for more headroom
  • Alluring aesthetic

VERSION 2 UPDATES: RING mode has been updated to provide even cooler ultra-fast phase tones and more usable ringmod effects. V2 also incorporates several new circuit tweaks to lower the overall noise floor and to resolve some of the early V1 quirks.

PLEASE READ |

Wait times: When ordering direct from us understand that sometimes what you’re ordering will be on the shelf, but sometimes we are wiped out of stock by big dealer orders and currently building per-order. When building per-order you can expect your pedal to take at least 2 business days to build before we’re ready to ship, excluding weekends. If you’re concerned, please contact us prior to ordering to see what we have ready immediately.

Return Policy: Our policy is basically this: if you want the option of returning a perfectly functional pedal please order from one of our dealers instead. We run a skeleton crew of builders and our primary focus is on building pedals. Product returns add a lot of administrative work to our day and in the end takes someone away from concentrating on what we do best. We do offer the option to buy direct from us, but it is more for your convenience and not ours. If the sales process becomes inconvenient or too time consuming for us administratively, it quickly becomes very unprofitable for us. On the other hand, our dealers’ primary focus is on the sales aspect. They employ people to do exactly the things that need to happen to facilitate more complex sales transactions, including product returns, refunds, exchanges, etc. Most of them have very flexible policies, because they have the manpower to do all of that.

Power: We recommend the Visual Sound 1Spot for single space power supplies. We’re not affiliated in any way with Visual Sound, but we do use 1Spots prolifically in our shop so they’re guaranteed to work optimally with our pedals. For $$ power supplies with recommend and use the Pedal Power Plus. Blackout pedals do not use batteries.

Knobs: The knobs that come on your pedal will sometimes vary from the photos provided. If you’re curious about which knobs we’re currently using on a particular pedal please contact us prior to ordering.

Candy: All Blackout pedals currently come with a sticker and a pick (when in stock). Printed manuals are not included. It’s just a waste of paper for something you may look at once, or not at all. All manuals are available on the website in PDF form.
