Solid Gold FX NU-33 Vinyl Engine Pedal

A one-of-a-kind effect that'll bring your tone back in time, SolidGold FX's NU-33 Vinyl Engine delivers unique textures to your tone with vinyl emulation.

There are very few things that the great people at Solid Gold FX enjoy more than guitars and records. What could be more satisfying than putting your mitts on your favorite instrument or spinning a record and watching the needle drop on a limited color pressing?

They love vintage guitars over at Solid Gold FX for the same reasons they love vintage records. While they might not play as great as a shiny, high-end, precision built custom axe, their magic lies in their flaws. Every ding and scrape tells a story, every little bit of player wear and lacquer checking lends a feeling and leads to inspiration. Same goes for records.... a little bit of noise and static pops add ambiance, allowing the listener to get lost in the music while mesmerized by the rotating platter.... its not so much about fidelity but rather warmth and texture to create a mood. So Solid Gold FX set out to combine their love for guitars with their love for records and the result is the NU-33.

Named after the Greek letter symbolizing spatial frequency and the RPMs of a turntable, the NU-33 is a lo-fi Vinyl modulator like no other. Designed to capture the vibe of records such as a particularly worn out copy of Black Sabbath's Master of Reality and an original pressing of Led Zeppelin I with just the perfect amount of static, the NU-33 serves up chorus and vibrato mixed with tastefully engineered hiss, crackle and pops to give your riffs just the right touch of vintage flair. The controls allow you to choose how read more much or how little flutter to add to your tone, color it with 2 additional filter modes, shape it with 3 different waveforms and dial in the mix with an analog blend; you can easily make this pedal sound as pretty and lush or as dark and somber as you please.

Once Solid Gold FX was finally happy with the way it sounded, it was time to pepper it with all the fun bits! Crammed in this little box is a manual mode to create a doubler ranging from 15ms to 50ms, an internally assignable expression pedal/CV input, multi-function foot switches for tap tempo and speed ramping, top jacks, relay based true bypass switching and a hold-to-skip function with 3 selectable speed presets to create a unique sonic stutter.

Well, with all that said, and whole lotta painstaking work leading up to this point, the NU-33 is finally here and all that's left to do is to get lost in its immersive waves and textures.
