Signal Pad Passive Attenuator

The Signal Pad is a passive attenuator that allows you to instantly switch to a different preset volume. It's like your guitar's volume knob, with a fully-passive and color-free circuit. Leave your amp's volume set high for overdrive, and use the Signal Pad to lower your level for a clean sound -- then switch it off to kick in your amp's natural overdrive. You can also experiment with the Signal Pad anywhere in your effects chain -- you'll bring out new tonal combinations from your favorite old pedals.

In Effectology 14, pedal guru Bill Ruppert takes us on a journey to previously unchartered sonic territory. Using only Electro-Harmonix pedals and his guitar, Bill creates a series of “believe it or not” soundscapes. Whether it’s the sound of songbirds singing joyfully by a babbling brook or a vintage vinyl “lo-fi” recording complete with clicks and scratches, Bill’s mastery of effects will amaze you. As he says, “Never judge what an effect pedal will do by what you have heard it will do. Experiment and you will find new sounds not yet discovered!” Indeed!

Please note: Bill will be in the EHX Forums to discuss his sounds, settings, and process. We hope you join us there.
