The new Triplegraph pedal from Jack White and Coppersound Pedals is an octave pedal with a built-in momentary kill switch/effects loop. This three buttoned effect looks very steampunk and should be perfect for all manner of wondrous noise making.
Jack White of White Stripes and Raconteurs fame has teamed up with Coppersound Pedals to bring us the new Triplegraph octave pedal. This funky looking black and yellow coloured pedal features a digital octave, along with a momentary kill switch and an effects loop. You can quickly and effectively add any of the three effects by pushing down on one of the three morse-code telegraph-style keys. The octave sound has zero-latency tracking and can work in momentary or latching modes.
Kill & Auxiliary modes
This simple, yet very immediate effect should be perfect for all manner of noisemaking. The left key triggers an octave down effect, while the right key triggers an octave up. You can set the middle key to Kill mode, which cuts off the dry sound, or when used in conjunction with the other two outer switches, will let only the octave up and/or down sound through. In Auxiliary mode, you can use the centre switch to send the signal through to the pedal’s effects loop instead.
Standard & Limited Edition
The Standard Edition is finished in matte black with yellow and white print, whereas the Limited Edition version comes in yellow with a signed certificate by Jack White. There will only be 100 pieces of the Limited Edition available. Both versions come with a 130 page book that details the four year long development of the pedal. That’s about how long Jack poured over with the prototypes, which also ended up being used on the The Raconteurs’ latest record Help Us Stranger.
RRP – USD 399 for Standard Edition or 449 for Limited Edition yellow version
