2016 was a great year for new guitar effects, but my favorite has to be the Viktrolux from Recovery Effects. The company describes it as the “ultimate unstabilizer”, but it does so much more.
The Viktrolux from Recovery Effects is the weirdest and most versatile modulation effect you’ve ever heard. It’s echo with grit and drive, twisting and warping with an unstableness that only a broken tape deck could do until now. Driving slightly like a signal hitting tape right before the point of breakup, the Viktrolux redefines echo and modulation in an effect pedal that can be used on a wide variety of instruments and recording applications. Guide the shape and speed of lighter irregularities with the Flutter controls. Manage sonic melting and tape spilling onto the floor with the dynamic sensitive Wow control. Voltage control input manipulates the delay time, opening up a whole new world for adventurous users.
