Used by a number of professional guitar heroes, the Jam Pedals Waterfall is a distinctly analog circuit based on the MN3207 bucket brigade chip.
It can do chorus and vibrato equally well. It’s based on a simple design with depth and speed knobs and two switches: one selects between chorus or vibrato mode and the other addes more depth to the chorus setting or more detuning to vibrato.
Jam Pedals Waterfall, Builder’s Notes
A JAM pedals favorite for a lot of guitar, bass and keyboard players, the WaterFall is serving as a mainstay on boards of such greats as John Scofield, Nels Cline, Steve Lukather, Anthony Jackson and John Mesdeski for many years now, and has established itself as one of the best analog chorus/vibrato pedals in the market.
It features BBD chips faithful reproductions of the Panasonic MN3207, 2 toggle-switches, the first to select between chorus and vibrato modes, and the other to switch to a “wetter” effect resulting in a deeper, more contemporary sounding chorus, or a more intense, deranged vibrato sound! Max out the Depth and Speed controls to get Leslie-speaker type effects!
The WaterFall is an extremely versatile, rich, 3D sounding, tone- machine that has converted even the most rigid of chorus-haters!
*The WaterFall features soft-click (relay) switching.
