Today’s Free Shirt Wednesday is Caroline Guitar Company! I’m really excited about this company, and our upcoming review of their Wave Cannon. Caroline Guitar Company is a new company offering a great product. The Wave Cannon is a booster/overdrive/distortion pedal, and it’s a pedal their builder, Philippe Herndon, is passionate about. Hopefully, in the next week or so, we’ll have a review put together, but initial thoughts of this pedal… it’s very very nice.
Here it the official description of the Caroline Guitar Company Wave Cannon:
Weâ€™re not going to pretend that this pedal is for anyone and everyone. A serious player will find plenty of great sounds with the Wave Cannon that respond to how they play: changing your technique, pick attack, dynamics, guitar and amp controls, pickup selections, and so on will yield a variety of great sounds. While capable of going from stomach-punching levels of boost all the way to waves of op-amp driven fuzz, the Wave Cannon pedal is not for the novice player who expects their gain pedal to do most of the work for them. Nor did we nanny-state this pedal to protect you from yourself; if you crank the drive controls and use a really bright guitar and amp, this pedal will get weird, squeal, and whistle at you.Â And we havenâ€™t even talked about the kinds of sonic mayhem that the Wave Cannon is capable of when you flip the Havoc switch!
Here is a shot of the rear portion of the t-shirt where they’re reproducing their laser engraved plate on their pedals (first 125 pedals). I dig the engraved plate.. nice touch.
I had the pleasure to interview Philippe a little while ago, you can read the short interview here (and there is a great video there as well):Â “Introducing Caroline Guitar Company”
