The JHS Kodiak is an all-encompassing tremolo designed to give you a classic clean modulation with loads of variety. Appropriately designed with a bear graphic, the Kodiak will wrap your tone in its furry effect.
Ratio and Wave settings
Use the ratio and wave knobs to get the most expansive array of sounds out of the Kodiak. Using the ratio, switch between quarter notes, eighth notes, triplets and sixteenths for increasingly faster speeds. Pick from Rhythmic, Square and Ramp soundwaves to drastically alter the timing and stutter of the effect. This Kodiak has a wealth of variation for unique takes on tremolo, like a classic choppy effect or shoegaze warbles.
A wet dial lets you blend the effect into the guitar signal, from dry to fully wet. Roll back on this and up on the volume to act as a preamp or driven boost. The speed does exactly was it says on the tin, offering everything from lingering passes to quick fluctuations.
Each dip cuts sound entirely so there's no bleed from overdrive or general noisiness. Go nuts experimenting with different pedal combinations.
You'll notice the two footswitches on the standard-sized stompbox. One being tap tempo, as this pedal is designed to work musically with your sound rather than random and dysfunctional. Simply press on it in time with the BPM of what you're playing to produce a rhythm-minded tremolo. Flick the switch on the side of the pedal to hook the Kodiak up with an expression pedal. This way you can change the rate on the fly for versatile live use.
