The LEVELER is a unique volume pedal. Unique because the analog signal is maintained yet levels are digitally controlled. Crisp clear tone is preserved at all volume levels. The inspiration for this pedal came from years of frustration when performing live and not having the correct volume levels. Now there is volume control.
For the past two years, we have been refining the Leveler to meet the demands of musicians around the world. Here's what we've changed:
- added internal gain trimmer so you can adjust the overall volume level...increasing the volume moves unity gain downward from default level 4...decreasing the volume moves unity gain upward from level 4
- changed output capacitor for better bass response...extremely transparent tone!
- added true bypass option
Analog-controlled volume pedals are great for crescendo/decrescendo but it is very difficult to hit a consistent volume level somewhere in the middle of the total volume range. Because the LEVELER volume pedal is digitally controlled, precise and consistent volume levels are easy to achieve.
Tap the up button a couple of times and you have a boost for solo. Then tap the down button a couple of times and you are back to the EXACT volume you were before the solo.
I have adjusted the volume of my effect patches over and over again prior to setting up at a gig. However, when I'm on stage, the dynamics of the hall and sound mix are so variable that more often than not my volume levels are off. Sometimes it will even change from song to song. The LEVELER volume pedal allows me to dial in the correct volume on the fly!
Unlike passive volume knobs like on your guitar, the LEVELER volume pedal incorporates a booster circuit that produces nice clear tone at all volume levels.
The signal path is all analog and includes a mosfet pre-amp followed by volume attenuation. The level however, is digitally controlled with up/down buttons and displayed on a 7-segment display. Volume levels go from 0 to 7.
This pedal has true bypass using a 3PDT heavy duty stomp switch. Powered by a 9V, negative post AC adaptor (not included), or battery.
All Pfeiffer pedals are hand-wired and finished with attractive laser printed lettering sealed in a polymer coating.
