The Crimson is a volume modulation circuit that creates a tremolo effect similar to that found on classic amplifiers.
The Crimson is housed in a tiny 2” x 2” enclosure that’s sure to squeeze onto any pedal board. Step on the footswitch to turn the pedal on and off. The LED lights up to indicate that the effect is active. The effect is completely removed (true bypass) from your signal chain when the pedal is off.
DEPTH – trimpot on the left when footswitch is down and LED is up. This controls the intensity of the tremolo effect and goes from almost unnoticeable to choppy
SPEED – trimpot on the right when footswitch is down and LED is up. The range is similar to a typical amplifier tremolo or “vibrato” speed control.
The Crimson comes factory set with a medium speed setting and medium intensity setting for a nice shimmery ring.
Configuration: As you look down at the front of the Crimson, the LED is near the top, and the on/off footswitch is near the bottom. The input jack in on the right side, the output jack is on the left side, and the power jack is on the left side.
Power: You can only power the Crimson with an external power supply (9 VDC) with the commonly used center-negative barrel connector. The maximum current draw is 5mA.
