Overview

The Night Wire is a feature-rich harmonic tremolo. What is harmonic tremolo? In short, the signal is split into high pass and low pass filters, then modulated with an LFO that is split 180 degrees. The Night Wire takes the traditional harmonic tremolo a few steps further by allowing the center point of both filters to be adjusted for different tones. The filter frequency has three modes: Manual, LFO and Attack. In Manual mode, the center point can be set to a fixed position with the frequency control. In LFO mode, the filters are continuously swept and the frequency control adjusts the speed. In Attack mode, the filters are dynamically swept according to pick attack and the frequency control acts as a range control, much like a standard envelope filter. The tremolo section has two modes, Manual and Attack. In Manual mode, the speed of the tremolo is governed by where the rate control is set. In Attack mode the speed is controlled by pick attack and the rate controls the sensitivity; the harder you pick, the faster the rate and vice-versa. The tremolo can be subtle and shimmery or full-on throbbing depending on where the depth control is set. With the depth set to zero, the Night Wire will act like a fixed filter, phase shifter or envelope-controlled filter depending on which mode the filter frequency is in. It also features a cut/boost volume control to get your levels just right. Each Night Wire is hand made one at a time in the moonlit village of Akron, Ohio.

This device is true bypass and uses relay based “soft touch” switching. Audio will not pass without power.

Controls
Rate Toggle: This toggle lets you select between two ways to control the speed of the tremolo. Attack lets you adjust the speed by pick attack. In this mode, the Rate knob controls the sensitivity of the dynamic tremolo. The higher the rate and harder you pick, the faster the speed will rise and vice versa. In Manual mode, the Rate control adjusts the speed like a common tremolo.

Frequency Toggle: This toggle lets you select one of 3 different ways to control the center frequency of the filter section. In LFO mode, the frequency is continuously swept by an LFO. In this mode, the Frequency knobs adjusts the speed of the LFO. In Manual mode, the frequency is determined by where the Frequency knob is set. In Attack mode, the center frequency is dynamically controlled by pick attack and the Frequency knob adjusts the sensitivity.

Level: Sets the output level, unity is around noon.

Depth: Adjusts the depth of the tremolo. More clockwise, less counterclockwise. When fully counterclockwise, the amplitude modulation will be removed and the Night Wire will function as a fixed filter, envelope controlled filter or phaser depending on where the frequency toggle is set.

Rate: In manual mode, this controls the speed of the tremolo. Faster speed clockwise and slower speed counterclockwise. In Attack mode, this controls the sensitivity of the dynamic tremolo. The higher the rate and harder you pick, the faster the speed will rise and vice versa.

Frequency: Controls the center frequency of the filters in manual mode: higher clockwise, lower counterclockwise. In LFO mode this controls the rate of the sweep: faster clockwise and slower counterclockwise. In Attack mode this controls the sensitivity of the envelope: lower Frequency gives slower rise and lower peak, higher Frequency gives faster rise and higher peak. Simple, right?

Power: Please use a standard 9 volt DC power supply intended for musical instruments with a negative center 2.1mm barrel.

  • Rate Toggle lets you select between two ways to control the speed of the tremolo
  • Frequency Toggle lets you select one of 3 different ways to control the center frequency of the filter section

Comments about Earthquaker Devices Night Wire Wide Range Harmonic Tremolo Effects Pedal:

within a few days of owning this pedal, I had a setting dialed in that I never changed. It stayed on that setting for about a month. Then I decided to experiment a little. Turns out I found something even more awesome, and the pedal stayed on that setting for about a month. Then I decided to experiment again. Turns out I found something even more awesome, and the pedal stayed on that setting for about a month.

This cycle happened about three or four times. I have never encountered a more wonderful, weird, inspirational modulation pedal. If you want a pedal that sounds like an alien-abduction encounter, coupled with the ambiance of a lair inhabited by a mythical underwater creature, also coupled with a tame, high quality harmonic tremolo, Earthquaker Devices has provided you with such a tool. Thank you !!

    Comments about Earthquaker Devices Night Wire Wide Range Harmonic Tremolo Effects Pedal:

    The Night Wire caught my attention when I was looking for something different, yet usable. In the store I fiddled a bit and thought it was weird, but cool. At home I dove in to find some settings and found myself noodling for a couple of hours. Finally, I settled on a couple of knob and switch settings for "gig sounds" and tried them out at a couple of shows. If you have limited space on your pedal board and need some modulation, this pedal fits right in. You can get some swoosh, trem, quack or a blend of all of them. It may take a little while to find a sweet spot or your "go to setting", but if you're looking for inspiration spend an afternoon turning the knobs on the Night Wire and fuel your imagination.
