Harmonic Tremolo + Tonal Amusement Park
This Butterfly has endless patterns for all you tone freaks and tweakaholics..
While most tremolos modulate the signal by rhythmically lowering and raising the volume, the Red Noise Butterfly utilizes a Low Pass Filter to achieve a warm and articulated tremolo sound, providing pliable tonality and flexibility.
Here are a few of its special features:
- Manual Mode turns off the LFO and allows manual control of the low pass filter’s cutoff frequency.
- Dry/Wet Signal Mixer allowing for parallel processing
- Two EQ controls: Bass / Treble tilt + Mid Boost/Cut (only on the ‘Wet’ signal)
- Tap tempo Foot switch
Controls the overall output volume from the pedal.
Dry / Wet
The Butterfly splits in input signal in such a way that a “dry” signal can be mixed with the “wet” processed one.
All functions, knobs and switches on the pedal apply only to the “wet” signal except for the Vol Knob which controls the mixed output.
The “dry” signal is buffered.
B / T
The Bass and Treble knob accentuates lows while reducing highs and vice versa around a center frequency of 800Hz. When the knob is centered the response is flat.
Mid Boost/Cut at center freq of 800Hz.
When the knob is centered the response is flat.
This control was designed to compensate and emphasize when lacking mids so it can amplify a lot… If you get distortion just take it down a notch.
Determines the range in which the filter is functioning. Clockwise = higher in the frequency range. Counter clockwise = lower in the frequency range.
Soft / Hard
Sets two mods of operation with different Q and depth:
Soft - More subtle and shallow
Hard - More pronounced and choppy
LFO / Man.
Determines the modulation source:
LFO – The Butterfly modulates automatically and moves according with the chosen wave shape and speed. In
Manual – The Butterfly can be used as a low pass filter. Control the cutoff frequency using the Speed / Freq. knob.
*Please note that the range of the filter still depends on the position of the ‘Range’ and ‘Soft / Hard’ functions so be sure to set those controls to fit your filtering desires.
This is an external sync input connected to the Tap Tempo button. This allows the LFO to be synchronized to an external clock signal. The circuit provides protection against negative voltages and signals up to 18V or so
Turns the effect on and off. When in the ‘Off’ position the Butterfly is true bypass
Tap while the pedal is on or off to set the desired speed.
Power 9V negative center
The Butterfly loves you, love it too, feed it clean 9V negative center and it will gladly and delightfully flap its shiny wings for all to see.
Turn the Blend knob all the way clockwise (maximum tremolo)
Switch the Soft / Hard toggle on “Hard“
Switch the LFO / Man. Toggle to “LFO”
Range, mid and T/B knobs at the center.
Set a comfy Volume.
Using the Speed / Freq. knob or Tap Footswitch, set a desired speed.
Play with the Range knob and get a feel of the filter range.
Play with the wave shapes to get acquainted with the different accents they provide
All Red Noise Pedals come with a 14 day money back guarantee as long as pedals are returned in their original new condition and are in perfect working order.
At Fuzz Audio, all vintage/NOS vacuum tubes purchased through our website are guaranteed for one year from purchase date. We accept returns for tubes going noisy, losing output/performance prematurely, and of course losing function all together. (Read about power tubes below).
We will not cover damage from red plating neglect, glass breakage of any kind, loose bases, or other obvious faults that are due to neglect, rough handling or egregious constant use.
This policy is meant to protect the buyer from having a tube go out on them prematurely from a flaw we missed. Tubes, especially preamp tubes, should last half a lifetime, and well beyond a year, so we want to guarantee each customer that you get a tube that will last.
For power tubes, although we will honor any faults mentioned above, we will not accept a return for a power tube that has obviously been used for 6+ hours a day for every day of the year for one year. Power tubes that have clearly been used beyond their normal wear point will not be accepted.
If you suspect one of your vintage Fuzz Audio tubes has gone bad within one year of purchasing, simply reach out via our chat or at Support@fuzzaudio.com and we will assist you in the warranty exchange process. No receipt is needed.
Please note, it is possible we will be out of stock of the tube that is in need of a swap. If this is the case, we will either offer a refund, credit, different tube, or send the first available tube of that type when it comes back in stock.
