Take your guitar tone to a new dimension with one of the deepest phasers ever made.

The Pigtronix EP2 Envelope Phaser guitar effects pedal pours on the special sauce to take your tone into outer space. Accentuating and sweeping through the harmonics of any musical source, the motion of this revolutionary phase shifter can be controlled by Envelope, LFO or a blend of both. The Pigtronix EP2 pedal is a complete redesign of Pigtronix' Envelope Phaser concept, built on 6 years of customer feedback from the original. The Pigtronix EP2 effects pedal sports sounds and smart features, in a considerably smaller package.

The Pigtronix EP2 guitar pedal makes it easy to dial in monster envelope tones for any instrument or playing style. The envelope in the EP2 kicks it up a notch with a "Staccato" function that is ideal for fast-picking, funk bass and tight rhythm guitar. The Stacatto circuit is an "intelligent envelope" that listens to your playing and quickly discharges the envelope between your notes. This crafty circuit enables incredibly responsive envelope performance, even during rapid-fire playing.

The Pigtronix EP2 pedal's rotary modulation LFO provides adjustable depth and center controls for fine-tuning the frequency range of operation, from subtle swirls to screaming sweeps with a huge range of available speeds. Another crucial addition to this Pigtronix effect pedal is the "LFO smooth" switch, which automatically reduces the resonance setting when the LFO is in use. This performance-friendly function finally lets you switch between corpulent, Mutron-style quack, and deep, swirling Uni-Vibe sounds with a single footswitch stomp-no knob tweaking necessary on stage.

In addition to its unique voice and interactive modulation section, Pigtronix EP2 incorporates additional control options, including expression pedals for both Sweep and Speed, as well as a continuous blend between envelope and LFO modulation sources.

The Pigtronix EP2 guitar effects pedal retains crucial features from the EP-1 such as true bypass switching, + or - phase inversion and the signature "trigger" input for manipulating the envelope with an external audio source. EP2 guitar pedal runs on 18-volts for maximum headroom.

  • it's new AND improved!

    As reviewed by Erik on 6/6/2010

    I originally had the EP-1 by Pigtronix. I loved its sound but it was in a ridiculously huge enclosure, making it impractical to use on a pedalboard. This unit is much more compact, however, and still sounds fantastic!

  • cool but not what it claims to be

    As reviewed by htrane on 7/5/2011

    I was super excited to get this pedal. A mutron-like envelope filter and phaser in 1 pedal sounded real useful and a great way to spice up my sound. The pedal also looks super sexy. When I played it though I found that it did not quite sound like an envelope filter or a phaser. You won't get Jerry Garcia tones. The regular mode for the envelope sounded sorta like a phaser and was not pronounced enough. The stocatto mode was too pronounced and did not sound organic to me. The phaser did not sound deep. I'm not sure what stage phaser it was but it could not produce those cool MXR 90 tones I was hoping for. The phaser sounded kind of envelope filter-like. The decay was too fast no matter what rate I set or center. Also the rate knob was kind of impractical as anything past 12 o'clock was super fast and to get classic phase speeds you really had to tweak finely between 8 and 9 o'clock. I would not say this pedal was terrible. The blend mode is awesome. You can get some really cool sounds from mixing the envelope and lfo signals. Basically I'd say the sound is good if you're looking for something that's not exactly a phaser and not exactly an envelope filter. Don't be deceived though. It cannot be both.
