Description
Krama II Loop Blender

Mix 2 different loops (A,B), dial-in as much dry signal you want, control the mix-levels independently.
Featuring phase reverse switches seperately for each loop and can boost each signal (dry, A, B) up to +6dB.
With a second footswitch you have the option of loop-selecting wth two possible options: (A or B) & (A or A+B)

All input and output jacks are placed on the top to help you save space on your pedal-board.

  • DRY: adjusts the level of dry signal (input) that goes to the output, it can boost the signal up to +6db
  • A Vol, B Vol: adjust respectively the levels of the A and B loop signal that goes to the output. It can boost each signal up to +6db
  • Phase reverse: Flipping the center toggle switches to the 180° position reverses the phase of the respective loop's signal.
  • Loop selection: With the footswitch on the right you have the ability to live select which loop or loops will be active: A or B and A or both A+B. With the toggle switch on the right you can preset the second option: B / A+B.

KRAMA-II is a multi-use, multi-functional tool that can be used:
  • as parallel LOOP MIXER: Send your signal into two separate loops (A & B), mix them with your dry signal, adjusting mix-levels independently.
  • as BLENDER: Blend the signals of three separate sources. Those can be either different instruments, pedal chains or a combination.
  • as SPLITTER: Split your signal into three equal outputs without 'coloring' or degrading the original signal's volume.

Suitable both for bass and guitar. The above functions can be combined in many different ways, offering increased functionality and versatility.


Power Supply Polarity dp effects
Power Supply Polarity

- Voltage Required: DC 9-15 Volt

(using 12 or 15 Volts will give you more headroom)


[Do not exceed recommended voltage! It may damage the circuit.]

- Max Current draw: 30mA (@ 9V)

- Input Impedance: 5MΩ

- Output Impedance: 100Ω

- Return loop input impedance: 1MΩ

- Send loop output impdedance: 1kΩ

- All loops have common ground

- True Bypass


IMPORTANT WARNINGS:

- To avoid hum, ground-loop buzz and other possible noises you should use an isolated power supply and avoid powering KRAMA with the same power cord that other pedals are powered.

- In case you use this pedal to send the output in more than one amps be sure not to create any ground-loops because it will most likely generate noise. If you need isolated outputs check this product: isolated buffer/splitter.
