The new Mile End Effects Julep is a stereo panning/tremolo and phaser effect that mimics the vintage Ibanez FP-777 Flying Pan stompbox. Available for pre-order now and available early in 2022, this Canadian made pedal looks like a lot of fun.
Mile End Effects Julep
Inspired by a classic vintage ’70s Ibanez FP-777 Flying Pan pedal design, the new Mile End Effects Julep offers players a stereo panning/tremolo and a phaser effect. Control knobs for the stereo panning and tremolo consist of Left Depth, Right Depth, Rate, plus Waveform. The latter has options for switching/morphing between triangle and square wave shapes. The phaser side of the effect is controlled by Depth and Rate knobs.
Each side of the Julep has its own footswitch to engage the effects, and a Sync/Separate toggle also allows the user to sync up the panning/tremolo effect between the stereo outputs. You can even separate them by 180 degrees.
These Canadian-built pedals are pretty nicely priced, and you can go between all manner of chewy modulation/phases. The stereo/panning operation means plenty of width if you need it. If you run the unit in mono, the panning effect will just become a regular tremolo effect.
The original Ibanez pedal is now a vintage collectable and if you can find one, it will normally cost you an arm and a leg. So this modern day take on the old classic is more than welcome. Plus, it should be a lot more reliable than an 40-plus-year-old stompbox, and a heck of a lot cheaper to replace if lost or damaged. The Julep is true bypass and takes a standard 9V DC power supply. You can pre-order the Julep now and shipping is expected around 1 March 2022.
RRP – CAD 279
