Holowon is a small company based in Rochester, NY specializing in hand-built effect pedals. All their designs are 100% originals – no clones or copies – and they currently have 12 stompboxes on their “roster.” Their effects utilize complete true bypass switching, hand-built point-to-point circuitry and wiring, virtually indestructible construction, and a lifetime warranty.
Their latest pedal, called “Tape Soup,” is a true pitch shifting vibe. It gives you everything from subtle, bouncy vintage amp shakes to smudgy smears reminiscent of cassette players on the verge of mangling your tape. Shapeable attack/decay waves and an extremely wide speed range can push your tone into a full modulation stew.
Here are a couple of videos that will give you an idea of how it sounds.
