Just got an email from a company called Chaos Sound who’ve created a new pedal, The Anti-Effect, which essentially F’s up your sound by simulating a burning amplifier or shorting cable. I can’t even begin to describe it, so I’ll let you view the video demo:
I don’t know whether to like it or absolutely HATE it. 🙂 I do have to tell you that it’s completely different than anything I’ve ever seen or heard.
My first though upon reading the email was, “Who the f%&k would want to mess up their sound.” Then I realized that an uber-weirdo (in a good way, of course) like Jack White might dig something like this. I actually liked the kind of stuttering effect that pedal introduces when engaged, though I did not like the MAX setting; too messed up.
So if you want to check out something totally different, check out their site: www.chaosound.com
