INTRODUCTION
Do you want true and original compression? The Vintage Compressor
gives you an uncolored and unbiased sound. With clarity and dynamics
of virtuosic dimensions and steadfast character, you can crank up the
compression level to max. Even out any indecisive signals by cranking
down the high-input signals and boosting the low ones - and do it
without loosing any of the tasty lucidity and dynamics of your original
sound. From classic percussive compression types to loads of sustain,
the options are right here.

OPERATION
Connections
Input - 1/4” connection for input signal. Connect your guitar here.
Output - 1/4” connection for output. Connect the output to your amp or
mixer.
LED - On/Off indication.
Controls
Comp Drive - Sets the compression amount. The higher setting the
lower Threshold and the more makeup-gain is applied.
Attack Time - Determines how fast the compression is achieved. A
short Attack time combined with a high Comp Drive setting gives a very
aggressive compression, where a longer attack time gives a more
subtle compression that reduces the dynamics of the signal.
Output Level - Output level control that in maximum position gives a
boost of approximately 3dB.

INTRODUCTION
Remember those tube amps with that extremely creamy and alluring
tremolo? The Vintage Tremolo reconstructs exactly that sound, yet it
gives you all the power to adjust according to your taste or mood. If you
dig a more saturated expression, just boost the signal. If you want to go
really slow and really deep adjust the speed and depth knobs. The
mode knob lets you switch between soft and hard tremolo.

INTRODUCTION
The soft yet crusty and crunchy sound that comes from the Vintage
Overdrive will make your guitar sing. Normally you would have to use
an old tube amp of the past to acquire the balmy overdrive that this
pedal delivers. Your dynamics are loyally reproduced and the Vintage
Overdrive will give you delicious harmonics and a broad natural
sounding tonal spectrum.

INTRODUCTION
Often versatility is called upon and the Vintage Distortion pedal gives
you all the choices you need, with a vintage twist. Go from jazzy laidback sounds to mega fuzz sledge hammer action that will blow your
toupee off. With the boost function bypassed you'll get a sound that
makes you think of late night jazz sessions. Turn on the boost and your
guitar is on the fast track to roaring thunders similar to legend rock
albums of the past. Adjust the TONE knob for that extra edge to your
sound - it won't have an effect on your original sonic quality, so don't be
a cheapskate, crank it up!

The Vintage Dual Distortion brings you back in time. The full-bodied
vintage sound is pleasantly warm and crispy, and adds solidness to the

INTRODUCTION
The Vintage Delay will instantly bring you back to the time of warm,
lush vintage echoes, and at the same time it can deliver clean state-ofthe-art digital delays. Resurrect the tape echo of the 60'ies, recreate
the "analog" temperate sound of the tubes, or be cool with the studio
quality delays. Tap-tempo lets you set the pace, and combined with the
Triplets function many of the common delay functions are covered. If
there was such a thing as a reincarnation of the ultimate delay, the
Vintage Delay pedal could be it.

OPERATION
Connections
Input - 1/4” connection for input signal. Connect your guitar here.
The input also accepts a line signal (sensitivity is -10dB as on most
common semi professional equipment).
Output - 1/4” connection for output. Connect the output to your amp.
MIDI - Two functions can be externally controlled from and external
MIDI device sending MIDI CC’s.
Send MIDI CC 20 to control the Tap Tempo.
Send MIDI CC 21 to switch the delay On/Off.
Direct - The direct output sends unprocessed signal to e.g. a tuner or a
second amp.
Controls
Delay time - Sets the delay time. The delay time can be set from
approx 10ms to 1500ms.
Feedback Level - Sets the amount of signal that is fed back to the
input of the delay line. The higher setting the more delay repeats.
Vintage Delay
21
OPERATION
Delay Level - Controls the level of the delay repeats.
Output Level - Output level for the effect.
Filter - To reproduce the slight deterioration of the delay repeats that
was significant to old tape echoes the Filter can be switched on. This
function gives a warmer sound on the delay repeats that allows long
relatively loud delay repeats to blend much better in your overall sound.
Triplets - In off position (up), the tapped tempo equals the delay time
between the repeats. If you e.g. tap quarter notes at tempo 120BPM,
the delay will repeat times 2 per second pr. second.
When the triplet function is acivated - the delay repeats will play
quarter note triplets according to the tapped tempo. That means 6
repeats per bar.
