Calling all guitarists seeking unique sonic textures and effects! Red Witch Pedals has introduced the Euphemia, a limited-edition sample hold filter pedal designed to unlock a world of creative possibilities. Inspired by the legendary tones of Frank Zappa and Carlos Santana, the Euphemia offers a distinct approach to effect manipulation.

Euphemia – What is a Sample Hold Filter Pedal?

For the unfamiliar, a sample hold filter pedal captures snapshots of your guitar’s signal, essentially “freezing” it momentarily before taking another snapshot. This creates a warbling, synth-like effect that adds a layer of unpredictable, bubbling textures to your sound.

Think of iconic tracks like Frank Zappa’s “Ship Ahoy.” The Euphemia aims to capture that essence, drawing inspiration from vintage pedals like the Maestro FSH-1 and Oberheim VCF-200. While those vintage models are highly sought-after and expensive, the Euphemia offers a more affordable and modern take on this classic effect.

Unleashing Your Inner Sonic Alchemist

The Euphemia goes beyond simply replicating vintage sounds. It empowers you to sculpt your own unique sonic landscapes. Unlike traditional sample hold filters that only control the effect’s speed, the Euphemia boasts additional controls for in-depth customization:

  • Velocity: Adjust the rate at which the filter shifts, creating faster or slower warbling effects.
  • Frequency: Target the effect on specific frequency ranges, focusing on the lows, mids, or highs of your guitar tone.
  • Aggression: Dial in the intensity of the effect, ranging from subtle psychedelic swirls to full-on sonic mayhem.
  • Mix: Blend the wet (effected) signal with your dry (unaffected) signal to find the perfect balance.
  • Bandpass Filter Mode: Turn the Aggression knob fully counter-clockwise to unlock this mode, allowing you to tether your guitar tone to a specific frequency for those classic “notched” EQ sounds popularized by Carlos Santana and Brian May.

It follows another limited edition run, with the Falcor chorus pedal created as a tribute to Fulton’s late father.
