The Caroline Guitar Company Wave Cannon is starting to make some noise in the effects world. It was just recently named a “Buzz Bin” product and awarded the Platinum Award for Excellence in Guitar World magazine! We recently did a demo of the pedal, and have seen a few others reviews happening out there. The response has been great, and it’s obvious that this is a *hot* pedal right now!
Talking to Philippe when he sent the pedal for a review, he mentioned it would be great for me to give it away to a lucky EffectsBay.com reader. I’m sooo down with this, and I know that this pedal will end up on a happy pedal board some where, unleashing Wave Cannon fury to the masses.
First off, if you’re not familiar with this pedal, you will need to read/watch/listen to the demo – “Review of Caroline Guitar Company’s Wave Cannon“.
If you’re curious about the guy/company who builds these.. you need to read a little mini-interview we had with Philippe Herndon – “Introducing Caroline Guitar Company”
Okay, back to the give away. Right now, sitting on my desk, I have one of the original Custom Wave Cannon. Here is the official description of the pedal:
Caroline Guitar Company’s flagship product is the Wave Cannon™. Based on your favorite op-amp fuzzes and distortions of the 1970s & ’80s, it may be the finest pedal of its kind. In distortion mode, it is a veritable Swiss army knife of overdrive sounds, capable of going from a “clean” boost all the way to amber waves of gain. In Havoc™ mode, chaos reigns.
The Wave Cannon is not for the novice who expects their gain pedal to do most of the work for them. Nor did they nanny-state this pedal to protect you from yourself; if you crank the drive controls and use a really bright guitar and amp, things may get weird, squeal, and whistle at you. However, 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. And they haven’t even talked about the kinds of sonic mayhem that the Wave Cannon is capable of when you flip the Havoc™ switch!
Custom model includes Havoc switch. Standard does not.
Please check out Caroline Guitar Company on the web, Facebook and Twitter when you get a chance! I would like to say a special thanks to Philippe for sponsoring this give away! It’s very much appreciated!
So how do you win this bad boy? For this give away, I’m going to do something different than past give aways.
