Eddy

DESCRIPTION

No one does bucket-brigade effects like Electro-Harmonix and with the Eddy you get lush EHX vibrato and chorus in a compact, pedalboard friendly package with unique control options.

The Eddy gives you envelope and expression pedal control over modulation rate and depth. That means you can control either with your playing dynamics. Plus, if you plug in an EXP pedal, you can use it to control the rate or depth at the same time.

The Eddy also features LFO shape warping which can transform the shape of the modulation from a standard sine wave to something totally asymmetric. Plus, the pedal’s tone control lets you make the sound brighter or darker.

EHX Founder, Mike Matthews, says: “EHX’s long history in creating bucket-brigade based pedals goes all the way back to the Electric Mistress Flanger, the Memory Man Analog Delay and the Clone Theory Chorus/Vibrato. The new Eddy springboards off that rich heritage and adds modern control to classic sounds.”

  • Bucket-brigade based vibrato and chorus with an all analog signal path
  • Envelope and EXP pedal control over modulation rate and depth expand the versatility of the Eddy’s classic sounds
  • LFO shape warping can take the modulation shape from standard to totally asymmetric
  • Tone knob lets you tweak the tonality of the effect
  • Pedalboard friendly footprint, but a full complement of controls
  • White status LED plus a blue strobing LED to display the modulation rate and shape
  • Power adapter included

Owner's Manual
VIBRATO/CHORUS SWITCH
This switch determines which effect you are currently using.
ENV/EXP SWITCH
This switch determines whether the envelope and/or expression pedal is affecting the rate or depth of the effect.
VOLUME KNOB
This knob sets the output volume of the effect.
SHAPE KNOB
This knob affects the LFO (low-frequency-oscillator) shape of the modulation. With the knob at center, you have a symmetric sine wave, the most standard sounding effect. As you turn the knob one direction or the other, the LFO shape is warped to be less symmetric the further you turn the knob.
RATE KNOB
This knob sets the speed of the modulation. The rate can be further controlled with your playing envelope and/or an expression pedal, which is explained later in this manual (see numbers 8 and 9).
TONE KNOB
This knob affects the tonality of the effect. Turn this clockwise for more treble (a brighter sound), turn this knob counter-clockwise for more bass (a darker sound).
ENVELOP KNOB
This knob effects how your playing envelope, or dynamics (how loud/soft you are playing) affects the modulation. With the knob at center, your envelope has no effect. As you turn the knob above center, harder playing will result in a faster rate or higher depth (depending on the state of the ENV/EXP switch). The further the knob is turned up, the more dramatic this effect will be. As you turn the knob below center, the opposite happens: harder playing results in a slower rate or lesser depth. See manual for more.
DEPTH KNOB
This knob sets the amount of modulation. The higher this knob is, the more dramatic the effect is. The depth can be further controlled with your playing envelope and/or an expression pedal.
FOOTSWITCH
Press this footswitch to switch between effect and buffered-bypass modes. You can also use this footswitch to enable a momentary effect. If, when in bypass, you press and hold the footswitch for over a half second or so, upon pressing it the effect will engage, and upon removing your foot the effect will switch back to bypass. You can disable this momentary option by opening the back of the pedal and switching the internal “mom. enable” switch on the bottom left to “OFF.”
INPUT JACK
Plug a standard TS instrument cable from your guitar (or the output of another effects pedal) into this jack. The input impedance of the Eddy is 1MΩ.
EXPRESSION JACK
Plug an external expression pedal into this jack using a TRS (tip-ring-sleeve) cable. The Eddy, like all Electro-Harmonix effects, sends out its reference voltage on the ring and expects the control voltage on the tip. Which parameter the expression pedal controls depends on the state of the ENV/EXP switch. The current position of the RATE/DEPTH knob will serve as the maximum level, the level you will get when the expression pedal is at toe.
OUTPUT JACK
Plug a standard TS instrument cable from this jack to the input of a suitable amplifier or a different effects pedal. The output impedance of the Eddy is 470Ω.
BLUE STROBING LED
This LED strobes based on the current rate and shape of the modulation. As the rate is changed, by either the RATE knob, your envelope, or the expression pedal, you will see the speed of this LED’s strobing change. This LED also helps visualize changes in the LFO shape controlled by the SHAPE knob. The current depth of the modulation is not reflected in this LED.
WHITE STATUS LED
This LED lights when the pedal is in effect mode, and is off when the pedal is in buffered-bypass mode.
