We combine durable true bypass relay switching with an effect-side FET switch for pure and smooth switching.

USA Made PCBs

Our circuit boards are made in the USA by Advanced Circuits (large PCB runs) or OSH Park (small PCB runs).

FEATURES & CONSTRUCTION

PRP Audio Resistors

Low Noise Op Amp

A modern, high-speed op amp was chosen for its low-noise and high-fidelity properties.

We used low noise, low inductance resistors made for audio circuits by Precision Resistive Products in the USA.*

*Not used in the Junior series.

Extended Headroom

A simple voltage inverter circuit was used to effectively turn 9V into 18V. More voltage means more headroom & bigger tone.

All VFE Pedals are built with these quality components and features:

 

- Rugged diecast aluminum enclosures

- TrueSoft + DualMode true bypass switching

- Industrial-grade Carling switches & Neutrik audio jacks

- Alpha pots soldered directly to PCB

- 5% WIMA film capacitors & 1% metal film resistors

- Cardas Audio ultra-pure, eutectic silver solder

- P3 system phantom-power compatible

- Built by hand in Puyallup, WA, USA

- 1 year warranty on parts & labor

DualMode Switching

DualMode Switching can convert the footswitch into momentary operation.

To use, wait 5 seconds, then press the sequence tap+tap+hold until LED flashes.

As someone who got their start playing acoustic guitars, I prefer compressor pedals that don't sound like an effect. I want my transparent tone from top-to-bottom to stay true, but then add some smooth leveling and sustain to help the guitar stand out in the mix. In the quest to build the perfect compressor, I tried many things, and finally narrowed it down to the features that matter most for guitar and bass.

 

The White Horse can add loads of sustain with natural dynamics via the blend circuitry, but the unique drive control is what really sets it apart. This control balances the circuit between clean and dirty compression, giving you a responsive drive that stacks well with your dirt boxes.
