Hi Sam from Guitar Village here and today we are checking out the PRS win through the trees dual analog flanger pedal so let’s open it up and see what’s inside the Box surprise surprise a pedal let’s take that out and just take a second to have a quick look at this so this is prs’s uh first line of guitar pedals they’ve never really made them before and let’s have a look see what else we’ve got in the Box here too

so we’ve got a nice owner’s manual there so this has all the instructions in there on how to operate the pedal got some sample settings as well so we’ll check those out in a bit got some little feet so they stick onto the bottom of the pedal if you’re not going to be putting it straight on a board with some Velcro and a couple of other little bits in here as well now let’s have a look so as the name suggests it’s a dual analog flanger so we’ve got two pedals really in one here so the controls are the same on both sides there so you’ve got the manual depth and rate and the mix here which determines how much of each of these you’re going to be using so right in the middle is 50 50 or you can lean towards one side or the other a bit more on the right hand side you’ve got some Global controls the the regen control that’s too that’s where the output of the pedal spins the tail back to the input again so you adjust that up and that can just make the effect even more prominent you’ve got a dry wet mix so you can blend in your original signal and the added highs which is really useful so if you’re using the pedal at quite extreme setting sometimes you can use a little bit of the top end and you just use that to blend in a little bit more now in terms of the inputs and outputs it’s really simple plug your guitar in there power supply goes in there and then plug your amp in that side so let’s plug this thing in then check it out let’s hear the guitar clean first

let’s add the effect in

okay so I said we’re going to try some of the sample settings in here so let’s have a look uh first up at Paul Reed Smith’s favorite setting let’s just adjust these around a little bit and get them exactly where he likes them

okay let’s see how that sounds

foreign actually quite a subtle one now let’s check out we’ve got a slow 80 style flange let’s give that a go

okay let’s hear this one

nice so that one’s a little bit deeper that effect now let’s try the third one and this apparently is better for bass but we’re going to test it with guitar and see how well it does

nice although the manual does say it’s great for strummed chords as well so let’s hear it with some strumming [Applause] [Music] [Applause] [Music] [Applause] there’s some of the tones that the wind through the trees have to offer and that was to our house Cornell Roman E12 with a PRS McCarty 594 I found that the manual control which adjusts the delay time it did make a slight difference but I think you know it didn’t make as much of a difference as you’re going to find with the depth and rate controls they really really make a big difference there having the option of being able to blend the two lfos in was really useful and you could see these little LEDs light up taking in the Regeneration control there was very good in just thickening up the overall effect as well as the dry wet signal as well so you can blend in your clean tonal the effect tone as well and having the added High switch was really useful for just bringing back some of the top end if you want to find out any more about this pedal please click on the link in the description below thanks for watching
