Our Telegraph pedal gets a makeover.

Make way for the new Killswitch on the block! The successor to our popular Telegraph Stutter pedal, Telegraph V2 is our all new, redesigned killswitch and stutter system. Retaining aspects of the original Telegraph pedal was important to us. Instead of plastic, Telegraph V2 features an upgrade of proprietary, all-metal hardware. This sturdy (and stylish) upgrade now allows the player to control the effect with their feet, whilst still retaining tactile efficiency for hand operation. This greatly helps to improve the user experience. Furthermore, on the inside, we’ve designed a brand new Active circuit from the ground up. Featuring new modes and parameters effectively impossible to attain on the original Stutter.

In addition to the classic Kill and Activate modes, we are excited to present:

Burst mode!

Burst mode is an automatic, tremolo-like stutter, adjustable from 110bpm to an astonishingly fast rate. This BPM is set by the Burst Knob. In Burst mode, the effect can be latched (with a quick press of the key), or triggered momentarily (when the key is held). Meanwhile, for the player that would prefer to only have momentary mode, we provided an internal dip switch to turn off the latching feature.

A Telegraph pedal with more than just swag

Additionally – emulating aspects of the original Kill and Activate modes – the “Polarity” toggle on the side of the enclosure further enhances the possibilities of Burst mode. Firstly, when Polarity is set to “Kill”, your clean signal passes through until the key is pressed (engaging Burst). Secondly, when set to “Activate”, no audio will be heard until the key is pressed, allowing you to generate controlled bursts of sound!  Lastly, Telegraph V2 features an integrated, power loss fail-safe. Subsequently that if the pedal should lose power, it will automatically revert to a bypass state. Secure your peace of mind. Similarly, when unpowered, Kill mode can still be accessed.

Expression capabilities

Telegraph V2 was designed with expression capabilities in mind to increase the user experience. As a result, the rate of Burst mode can be controlled externally by an expression pedal. We recommend ≤ 10K. Similarly, it can be synced to a CV gate clock source to match the tempo. Utilize Telegraph with your favorite DAW!. Lastly, Telegraph can be used as a passive dual tap. Simply connect the IN and/or OUT jacks to a device that receives a Normally Open(NO) tap source.

This newly re-imagined telegraph pedal serves as a unique and creative tool for both live and studio use. Where rugged engineering meets on-the-fly inspiration! What will you create?
