We are always psyched to feature the cutting edge stompboxes of Canadian manufacturer Fairfield Circuitry. This modulation pedal, called Shallow Water, is presented as a “K Field Modulator” – for those wondering what that means, here’s a technical/philosophical explanation directly from the manufacturer:

K-field (Simulation mathematics), an undefined, two-dimensional, non-linear field where past and future forces interact at irregular intervals. Shallow Water generates this k-field by randomly modulating a short time delay to create unexpected shifts in pitch. The result is this non cyclical vibrato/chorus/flanger-type thing favouring old tape flavours.

The water is shallow on this side of the pool. Do not dive and you will not drown.
