Zander Junipero

The Zander Circuitry Junipero is a multi-modulation, stereo pedal for the alternative and experimental guitarist. The British company makes that very clear in the first line of the pedal’s description by stating that it’s “inspired by our love of post-punk, new wave and shoegaze” – genres that pioneered edgy, uncommon guitar sounds.

With five on-board presets, tap tempo with subdivisions, full expression control & MIDI, the Junipero offers incredible versatility that fits right in with anyone’s rig. Here’s the list of modes:

  • Chorus/vibrato with detune – Voiced to replicate the analog chorus pedals that defined the sounds of the 1980s. CTRL knob acts as a detune control.
  • Multi-voice chorus – 4 voice chorus that creates a very lush and intricate chorus sound that borders on flanger territory with certain settings. CTRL knob is a mic control for voice 3 & 4.
  • Flanger – Multi-mode flanger with wide-ranging rate & depth controls. CTRL knob blends between through-zero, vibrato and classic flange sounds.
  • Phaser – Classic 10 stage phaser with wide-ranging rate & depth controls. CTRL knob is a feedback control for creating more vocal phasing effects.
  • Tremolo – Variable tremolo with wide-ranging rate & depth controls. CTRL knob blends between classic sine-wave and a ‘repeat percussion’ style effect.
  • Harmonic tremolo – Amp style harmonic tremolo. CTRL knob is a ‘Q’ control to make the effect more vocal (think auto-wah)
  • Vibrato & tremolo – A synchronised tremolo & vibrato, great for creating faux rotating speaker effects. CTRL knob is the tremolo depth.
  • Ring modulator with aliaser – LFO controlled ring modulator with an independent aliaser. CTRL knob is the aliaser blend & frequency.

The 7 controls are:

  • Rate – Modulation speed
  • Depth – Modulation intensity
  • CTRL – Parameter varies depending on the patch
  • Tone – for the wet signal
  • Level – Output volume
  • Mix – 100% wet to 100% dry
  • 1-8 – Patch selector

The four footswitches are for Engage (bypass), Sub, Preset, and Tap Tempo.

The Zander Junipero can deliver your regular modulation tones, but offers a palette of sounds that extends to “out-there”

The Junipero is a multi-modulation pedal, offering 8 unique takes on classic modulation effects including vibrato, chorus, flanger, phaser & tremolo and ring modulator.

Inspired by our love of post-punk, new wave and shoegaze; as well as an interest in classic modulation effects. The Junipero allows you to drift of into an aqueous wonderland of wobbliness, combining an intuitive and familiar interface with easily accessible additional functionality.
