The VCR is the result of a collaboration between PaxAM, Ryan Adams, and JHS Pedals. The VCR brings you the sounds of Ryan Adams most recent albums where he has the perfect 80s reverb and chorus vibe with the breakup of his amp breathing life into every strum. With simple controls and the ability to engage all three effects with one stomp, you’ll find yourself a prisoner of tone when you are rocking the VCR. So let’s pop a tape in the VCR to see how it plays…
The VCR has three different one knob controls for the effects: Volume, Chorus, and Reverb. Each effect is engaged by a toggle below the knob, and the master on/off is the footswitch. The Volume is a simple boost that can be used to give you more volume or send your amp into breakup, perfect for low wattage amplifiers. The Chorus is a classic swirling 80s style chorus. When increasing the Chorus control the speed increases while the depth decreases, and when decreasing it the speed decreases and the depth increases. The Reverb is a hall reverb that is perfect for adding that 80s style decay to your sound. The Reverb knob controls your reverb mix, from fully dry to fully wet. All these combined will have you screaming “Friday, I’m in love” in no time.
- Classic 80s style effects tailored to Ryan Adams’ specs.
- Individual bypass toggles for each effect.
- Simple controls for easy dialing in of your sound.
- Master bypass footswitch so you can engage all effects at once.
- Please be kind, no need to rewind!
The VCR is your time machine to take you back to the wonder years of chorus and reverb!
