Vein-Tap Introduces Dark Arts Tap Tempo Phaser

British pedal maker has unveiled the new Dark Arts Tap Tempo Phaser, the latest addition to the company’s Dark series of stompboxes.

Features of the fully-analog pedal include: 16 unique wave shapes; a Voice knob that controls the ratio between Vibe and Phase mod tones, or between Phase and Dry signals; a Multiplier control that changes the ratio of the tapped tempo, from half, full, dotted eighth, double, triple, and quadruple time; a Feedback control that allows the user to customize the phase sound from subtle or extreme; and a pulsing LED that reflects the custom phase wave.

There’s also an on-board soft-touch Tap Tempo footswitch and soft-touch true bypass footswitch.
