Pfeiffer Electronics

Guitar Effect Pedals For Those Seeking The Ultimate Tone!
Every design from Pfeiffer Electronics is carefully evaluated to ensure minimum tone loss. We believe less is more when it comes to effect pedal technology. We remove as much tone-shaping circuitry as possible to produce a pronounced effect but still retain the original tone.

This delay pedal uses a digital echo processor to produce extremely accurate repeats. What you play is what you get! Delay speeds up to 500ms.
Repeats controls the number of echoes
Volume controls the echo volume. This is very useful for creating repeats that don't step on or cover up your original notes.
Speed controls the speed of the echoes; up to 500ms of delay
This guitar pedal has true bypass using a 3PDT heavy duty stomp switch. Powered by a 9V, negative post AC adaptor (not included), or battery. Includes reverse polarity protection circuitry.
Dimensions: 125B enclosure (4.7" x 2.5" x 1.5")

This is an Octavia Fuzz guitar effect pedal based on the Tycobrahe Octavia circuit. Originally designed by Roger Mayer and possibly copied by the Tycobrahe Sound Company. Rumor has it that Jimi Hendrix brought his Roger Mayer Octavio in for repair to Tycobrahe and that’s when they supposedly cloned it.
This guitar effect pedal uses a small audio transformer to create the octave-up sound. Two germanium diodes and three high-gain silicon transistors create a screaming, yet surprisingly controllable fuzz effect.
Level controls the overall volume. Because of the high gain transistors used, the fuzz-o can get very loud. Use this knob to set a desirable output level.
Gain controls the amount of overdrive/distortion. At low gain setting, the octave effect is more pronounced.
ByPass engages the pedal on/off.
Octifier engages the octave effect on/off. When turned off, the Fuzz-O is just a normal fuzz effect.

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
Distinct & Consistent Volume Levels
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.
Also works well with other instruments such as keyboard or bass.
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 phaser guitar effect pedal is modeled after the MXR Phase 90, probably the most popular four stage phaser of all time. The design uses four carefully matched JFET N-Channel transistors and TL071 op-amps to create its signature sound. With the modifications below, it is capable of both the block and script phaser sounds.
Two modifications have been made to the original phaser effect. First, in order to gain more control of the sweep and have both script and block phaser capabilities, we added a depth knob. When the depth knob is fully clockwise, you have a script phaser, all other positions are different variations of a block phaser. The second modification is the addition of the feedback knob. This knob controls how much of the output signal is fed back into the input path. This creates a more pronounced phaser effect and makes this guitar effect pedal more versatile.
Depth The depth knob controls the depth of the effect. When the depth knob is fully clockwise, you have a script phaser, all other positions are different variations of a block phaser..
Rate controls the oscillation speed.
Feedback enables extremely pronounced phaser sounds. It does this by sending the 4th stage of the phase shifter signal back into the 1st stage. This knob is what sets the Pfeiffer Phaser apart from other phaser effects. Experiment with different combinations of feedback and depth to discover some very unique tones.
ByPass engages the pedal on/off.
Dimensions: 125B enclosure (4.7" x 2.5" x 1.5")

All pedals have true bypass using a 3PDT heavy duty stomp switch. Powered by a 9V, negative post AC adaptor (not included), or battery. Includes reverse polarity protection circuitry.
All Pfeiffer pedals are hand-wired and finished with attractive laser printed lettering sealed in a polymer coating.
Two year warranty.
These will be available soon at Tym guitars.
