The Shaker ($129 street) is a monaural design that provides
classic pitch-modulation vibrato and a Latch mode
(engaged with a 3-position mini toggle) that produces
the vibrato effect when you depress and hold the footswitch.
In this mode, the Rise Time control adjusts how
fast the effect comes on, allowing you to dial-in Lesliestyle
effects that mimic the way a rotor sounds as it
spools up to speed. Set to Vibrato mode, the Shaker
offers everything from subtle, vocal-like inflections to
blurry sounding rotary-speaker effects to heavily pitchwarped
The Latch function is very hip, allowing you to insert
a faux whammy warble that builds under your fingers
with a slower Rise Time setting, or fire off a ’50s-style ray
gun sound with the Speed and Depth controls cranked
and Rise Time set for a fast response. The Shaker is rich,
dimensional, and extremely quiet. This great-sounding
vibrato can add some sweet textures to rhythm parts that
have a different personality than chorusing or phasing,
and its features and well-implemented controls make
it a very flexible pedal.
KUDOS Stellar range of vibrato effects. Superb sound
