The flagship effect unit from Totally Wycked Audio®, the Little Dipper® is an envelope-controlled vocal formant filter based on the uber-rare Colorsound Dipthonizer circuit. TWA® has taken this Holy Grail effect and launched it into the future with improved tracking, fuller frequency response, lower noise floor, and a pedalboard-friendly chassis with ultra-cool “Ursa Minor” status display! The Little Dipper’s® dual filters will bend and morph your guitar tone into a blabbering, gurgling fury, creating frequency peaks and notches that simulate the vowels and diphthongs of human speech! The Little Dipper® can emulate talkboxes, filters, phasers, or flangers, or spit out the most vocal-sounding wah-wah this side of the Milky Way. Stack it with an octave pedal for the fattest, throatiest synth sounds ever! The Mk II version of the Dipper is so crammed full of new tricks, we may as well have named it the BIG Dipper! Every millimeter of space has been utilized to create the most versatile, feature-laden filtering effect available in a stompbox. Yet despite all this new ear candy, the Mk II is about half the size and the same price as the original Dipper! In addition to the plethora new control features (listed below), the Little Dipper® Mk II also features TWA’s® proprietary S3™ “Shortest Send Switching™” - a form of relay-based True Bypass switching that provides the most transparent bypass sound available. S3™ switching also automatically reverts the pedal to bypass mode if power is lost – an essential failsafe for live gigs. 100% analog and 100% made in the U.S.A., the Little Dipper® is built from the highest quality components to assure light-years of trouble-free chatter.Don’t just reach for the stars – play them, with the Little Dipper® from TWA®!
