Overview

For fans of lo-fi and '80s digital delay, Caroline Guitar Company built the Kilobyte just for you. Your dry signal stays untouched down an analog path, then throws a +21dB OD preamp at it in tandem with a low-fi digital delay chip designed for low fidelity sound equipment like karaoke machines and children's toys. Create cutting delay that won't fade on you unless you want it to with the Attack and Level controls - and then build anything from classic slapbacks to haunting echoes and back again.

More Information

The Kilobyte, from Columbia, South Carolina's Caroline Guitar Company, sets a new standard in lo-fi delay tones. The heart of this pedal is a pristine analog signal path married to a boost/overdrive preamp and a low-res digital chip, which was originally designed for consumer audio products of questionable repute. The preamp only affects the repeats, and its +21dB of grunge can be used to smash the chip's low fidelity echoes into little bits of hairy audio shrapnel. As gruesome as that seems, the Kilobyte can also be used for lovely, warm sounding slapback and delay. Its true lot in life, however, is creating washed-out oscillations, violent repetitions, and grainy, swirling ambience. Illustrious modulation master Jack DeVille collaborated with Caroline on the Kilobyte's modulation circuitry, and it is sublime, adding a gentle sway to the pedal's gravel-throated vocalizations.
