Electro-Harmonix NYC DSP Series
This Electro-Harmonix NYC DSP Series now contains 9 pico-sized stompboxes that draw from some of Electro-Harmonix’s most iconic effects, now in an ultra-compact format.
Joining the previously released Pico POG and Pico Platform pedals are the new Pico Pitch Fork, Pico Oceans 3-Verb, Pico Canyon Echo, Pico Deep Freeze, Pico Attack Decay, Pico TriBoro Bridge, and the Pico ReRun.
As mentioned above each one is a small compact version of existing EHX effects pedals. Just now they are super easy to squeeze a load of them onto one pedalboard setup.
Pico Pitch Fork
The Pico Pitch Fork offers a total of 30 pitch shift options and expanded controls
The Mode button selects between Pitch Up, Pitch Down, and Dual Modes, while the Volume and Blend knobs make for perfect multi-voice mixing.
The new Sweep control adjusts the pitch sweep speed from instantly up to 4 seconds.
The Pico Pitch Fork offers Latch and Momentary switching functions for bursts of bent tones or retuning capabilities for full songs.
MSRP – USD 217.60
Pico Oceans 3-Verb
The Oceans 3-Verb offers Spring, Plate, and Hall reverbs from the Oceans 11 Reverb.
With flexible controls including pre-delay, spring length, and tone.
Additionally, Infinite Reverb can be accessed in an instant by maxing the time control or by pressing and holding the footswitch for an ambient wash of swelling reverb.
MSRP – USD 154.20
Pico Canyon Echo
The Pico Canyon Echo digital delay distills the original Canyon Delay and Looper’s simplicity and versatility into a no-nonsense echo effect with performance-ready features and tone.
The Canyon Echo is a pristine clean digital echo with up to 3 seconds of delay time. With Tap Tempo with 3 beat subdivisions, a FILTER knob that cuts treble or bass, switchable delay tails, and a new Infinite Repeats mode which acts as a looped tape machine.
MSRP – USD 149.50
Pico Deep Freeze
Pico Deep Freeze falls somewhere between the original Freeze and Superego pedals.
With the ability to freeze a moment in sound, the Deep Freeze is capable of acting as a sustain pedal for holding chords and notes as backing for your playing or as a platform to manipulate your tone into new sounds impossible with a normal guitar.
Features include Latch, Moment, and Auto Modes, plus Speed/Layer, and Gliss controls, as well as 3 bypass topologies for enhanced performance options.
MSRP – USD 193.10
Pico Attack Decay
The Pico Attack Delay features a simple control layout of Volume, Sensitivity, Attack, and Decay knobs.
Known for producing volume and reverse swells, backward tape sounds, artificially short staccato notes, and bowed instrument effects, the recent full-sized Attack Decay reissue brought the vintage effect into the present. Now it is more compact and just as usable.
The Pico Attack Decay also offers the Poly mode that gives each note its own attack envelope and makes playing arpeggios and fast lead lines effortless.
MSRP – USD 136.90
Pico Triboro Bridge
The offers Pico Triboro Bridge Overdrive, Distortion, and Fuzz tones.
Taking dirt algorithms from both the Platform and Attack Decay, the Triboro Bridge connects the 3 drive styles.
With a simple and convenient control set of Volume, Gain, and EQ controls plus a Gate for the fuzz.
An additional Input Contour Mode applies additional EQ at the input for more modern tonal capabilities.
MSRP – USD 144.40
Pico Rerun Tape Delay
Finally, there is the Pico Rerun Tape Delay which is based on the tape delay algorithm found in the Canyon Delay & Looper.
The Rerun Tape Delay gives off vintage vibes with modern convenience.
Three modes of Flutter and a Saturation knob bring a wide array of classic Tape Delay tones.
Cranking the Feedback knob or pressing and holding the footswitch creates runaway tape delay effects that are playable as their own instrument.
MSRP – USD 137.90
Add in the previous two releases from earlier this year and there are now 9 classic miniaturised EHX effects to choose from now.
Mike Matthews has been busy and I can really see this new range of Pico effects being popular. Hopefully, we will see more mini Pico versions in the future as well.
