The Rising Sun is an analog-optical tremolo pedal that expands on the technology found in vintage amplifiers. By utilizing digital control, the Rising Sun offers five global waveforms to its two modes: tap and ramp. Tap mode offers tap tempo functionality with four available subdivisions. Ramp mode allows the user to set a slow and fast tremolo speed and accelerate between the two, emulating a classic rotary speaker cabinet.
Power:9V DC, 50mA (center negative)
Dimensions: 2.6''x4.77'' (W x L)
About the Artwork:
The Rising Sun is a tribute to my Blackfeet (Amsskaapipiikuni) heritage. The Blackfeet were nomadic, but their movement wasn’t aimless. They traveled with a purpose, knowing where food and resources were plentiful. The teepee (niitoy-yiss) served a shelter because of its ability to fit the nomadic lifestyle of the Blackfeet. When setting up camp, the Blackfeet pitched their teepee doors towards the eastern sky. Every morning, the Blackfeet would open their doors so that their prayers could travel to the Rising Sun, which would help the sun (Natosi) reach above the horizon for another day. The Rising Sun artwork looks towards the eastern sky as the sun rises over the horizon and a silhouette of a buffalo (iinnii) skull appears in the plains.
