Volume Pedals

NEW ACTIVE/PASSIVE PEDAL

The Omni Pedal
A new level of standard features for a volume pedal.
Our new Omni volume pedal is either an active or passive pedal, whichever suits your needs, switchable by the push of a button. The Omni inputs and outputs are available from either side and are in parallel. Along with the tuner out on both sides, in active mode this pedal utilizes our signature Goodrich impedance matching circuitry, updated for guitarists and other musicians desiring the "old-school" technology, but who also appreciate its subtle sophistication.

PASSIVE MODE: In Passive Mode, we decided to stay with the tried and true method of potentiometer and string actuation. A string failure is extremely rare in our experience and a passive pot is what we all have used and relied on for years. Our Goodrich 470k-potentiometer* will give you a subtle and slight mid-range bump that has become part of our classic pot sound. High-end loss is minimal with superb feel and sound.

ACTIVE MODE: The Active Mode is selected by depressing the button located between the input jacks on the right side.  Out/Active. IN/Passive. In Active Mode, our circuit is enabled that the input from your instrument first will go through our circuit and then to our custom potentiometer, back to the circuit, and then to the output(s) and tuner.  You will notice a really even feel to the sound through the full range of the taper. There is a slight DB bump at the end and also a slight high-end bump that makes for a clear tone evident throughout the taper...created through much testing and research to achieve the right combination of components. We incorporated many great players' opinions and utilized our electronics engineers to help us dial in the tone that we agree to be exceptional.  Our engineers sat with us through seemingly countless combinations of components and values to come up with something we are pleased with.  In Active Mode there is absolutely no loss of highs or volume.

POWER SUPPLY: The Omni Pedal uses a 9v battery or the DC input when in active mode. Active mode battery life when plugged in will last for up to 1,000 hours. Unplugging your input will turn off the battery. Using the supplied adapter also disconnects the battery. In passive mode the battery is disconnected.

*Our Potentiometer
The passive electronics at the heart of our new Omni Pedal and all of our pedals is the custom engineered Goodrich 470k potentiometer. We spent timeless hours testing and defining the absolute best audio taper for this pot and designed it to be trouble free for many years of use. We engineered the taper to be an audio or logarithmic feel...years ago that desired feel or taper was described as a “J” taper because when the resistance taper when plotted out, it looked like a capital “J”. In sound terms, there is not much volume increase until about 30 percent of motion...then the remaining volume comes on rather quickly.
