The Electro Harmonix Deluxe Electric Mistress XO Guitar Effects Pedal delivers the coveted classic tonal offerings of the original Electro Mistress - that has seen it take pride of place on many a guitarist's pedalboard for over four decades -, whilst infusing some excellent modern appointments that guarantee its legendary status for years to come. If you're looking to inject some sweet analogue flanger effect into your tone, then the Deluxe Electric Mistress XO is the perfect choice.
Control comes in the form of an intuitive layout consisting of three pots and a switch. The Rate knob controls the speed of flanger modulation, with the higher settings resembling vibrato effects. The Range knob allows you to set the lower limit of the flanger sweep, enabling you to create a very narrow or a very wide sweeping effect. The wider the effect, the more the flanger sweeps in to the bass frequency range. The Colour knob sets the intensity of the effect, taking you from a subtle shimmer to a classic swirling, whooshing flanger effect.
The Filter Matrix switch enables you to freeze the flanger effect and remove the modulation waveform. Changing the flanger's position and depth of range is done by attenuating the Range and Colour knobs. The Rate pot has no effect when the Filter Matrix feature is accessed. The addition of this control expands the tonal arsenal available to you. The footswitch toggles the Deluxe Electric Mistress between effect and True Bypass mode. When the effect is engaged, the LED is lit.
Connecting to the pedal is easy, simply plug into the 1/4" jack input. Routing your signal can be done via two outputs: Flanged Out and Dry Out. The Flanged Out 1/4" jack is the effect output, with all flanging and modulation effects. The Dry Out 1/4" jack is connected directly to the input jack, which enables you to send your input signal directly to your amp or a separate effects chain.
The Deluxe Electric Mistress XO accepts 9V batteries, and even comes supplied with an Electro-Harmonix 9.6DC-200 power supply. Wherever you are, you can rest assured that your pedal is easy to power. The smaller footprint of the pedal in comparison to older models allows it to slot into any pedalboard set-up with ease.
The Electro Harmonix Deluxe Electric Mistress XO Guitar Effects Pedal is everything your could want from an analogue flanger, and then some. It's small, solid, easy to use, and best of all, retains its awesome tone-shaping abilities - truly exceptional.
