Caroline Guitar Company
Founded in 2010 to alleviate all of the pedal pain points that he experienced during his touring days, Philippe Herndon dares to dream differently to bring musicians the effects he wished he had when he played the big stages.
Caroline Guitar Company’s Kilobyte Lo-Fi Delay and Météore Lo-Fi Reverb currently stand as two of the most exciting ambient devices on the market today.
Built around a delay chip commonly found in old karaoke machines and toy pianos from the 80s, the Kilobyte Lo-Fi Delay offers some of the most stunning delay tones ever heard. Warm, round and supremely lush analog-voiced delays envelope your notes. Now blend in some of the on-board modulation and analog overdrive and you’re suddenly in tape-delay land. And with the unique HAVOC switch, you can instantly send your delays into gorgeous and surprisingly musical self-oscillation on your command.
The Météore Lo-Fi Reverb is a one-of-kind reverb that seeks to emulate the wild and crashing ambience found in the tunnels of the French Metro line. Sure, you can get sweet and subtle spring-like tones, but blend in some of the analog distortion and crank the feedback, and you’re suddenly deep in the metro tunnels, right next to the high-speeding trains. And with the HAVOC switch you can create everything from subtle oscillating reverb pads to full-on ambient chaos.
