Auto-fire Tremolo and Death-Ray Generator
Includes the Striptease™ ribbon controller!
Are you ready to wreak havoc and unleash a battalion of sound waves
that will slay your opponents, or at least have them begging for mercy?
Good, because the Kill Switch from Kilpatrick Audio has the power you
need to create substantial sonic damage. And it does it under your
complete control using the Striptease™ ribbon controller.
(included) The death-ray generator uses an internal oscillator
to create sound without even playing your guitar. Any frequency from
earth-shaking bass (if your amp has the balls) to soul-piercing squeals
and chirps is possible. You can make steady drones using the
FREQUENCY control, and adjust the frequency in real-time with the
But in addition to the built-in death-ray generator, the Kill Switch
has a hard tremolo effect which gives the pedal its name. You can
either leave it on all the time (by using the SPEED control), or
momentarily activate it by touching the Striptease™ ribbon
controller. The speed of the tremolo is continuously variable with
either the SPEED control or Striptease™, and the pulse
width can be set by using the WIDTH control. The tremolo affects
both the guitar signal and the death-ray generator's oscillator,
or can be disabled if you want to use the oscillator by itself.
A wide range of incredible effects is possible.
With high-quality construction using only top name parts,
the Kill Switch is designed for a lifetime of rocking. The
enclosure is made from cold-rolled steel with a powder-coated
paint job for long life. Circuitry is hand-wired and tested
for perfection. Battery life is long due to a low-power
design, and with the unique Pure Bypass technology, pristine
sound quality is maintained in your signal path when the
effect is out of the circuit.
