This one sparks joy! The SOMERSAULT™ is the chorus-y/vibrato-y/faux-rotary device that Caroline Guitar Co. has been asked to make for years. It’s time.
From seasick wobbles to glitchy bleep-bloops and “I think I can” huffs and puffs, the crazy sounding stuff was actually the easy part for the brand. So once you’re done maxing out different settings to hear what kinds of bizarre wowie-zowie sounds you can make with this thing, we encourage you to explore the subtleties of how each control interacts with the others, and the remarkable range of sounds that you can quickly and intuitively dial in.
SOMERSAULT™ applies a similar framework as the now popular KILOBYTE™ and MÉTÉORE™ pedals. While the digital chip sets the delayed wet signal, the initial gain stage, dry signal, LFO, control set and output stage are entirely analog. The end result sounds rich and fat, with the same robust effect our customers have come to expect from the brand’s pedals.
