Henretta Engineering No-Knobber Pedals
Henretta Engineering launches eight new "No-Knobber" pedals, micro-sized handmade effects that have... no knobs!
Lowcost Pedals that Impress!
These pedals feature straightforward no-nonsense operation, and come housed in a small 2" x 2" box.
No Knobber pedals are handmade, utilizing all-analog circuitry that is built to the same quality as other traditional boutique pedals. What this box brings to the table however is its one footswitch simple operation and space saving convenience.
Instead of utilizing the all-too-familiar knobs, Henretta Engineering opted to provide essential effect controls via internal trimmers and switches. This is ideal for gigging musicians because your settings are not easily changed, and you don't have to waste too much time figuring out all the pedal parameters.
Below is a list of the No-Knobber pedals along with quick descriptions of each one:
Orange Whip compressor - a compressor pedal based on the popular Dan Armstrong Orange Squeezer circuit. Internal trimmers will let you make mild adjustments to the compression and volume.
Emerald Prince preamp - features a preamp circuit based on the Echoplex EP3 preamp. An internal trimmer will let you adjust volume, and will let you switch between bright and dark modes.
Mr. White tweak boost - a boost pedal with some tone shaping capabilities. It has internal switches for adjusting volume and EQ, specifically the bass and treble frequencies.
BLUEBIRD fuzz - a straightforward fuzz pedal that comes with an internal presence boost switch for pairing with dark sounding amps. The sound is described as thick and warm with singing overtones.
Pinkman dirty boost - an overdrive pedal with signal boosting capability with a sound that is described to be warm and balanced. Volume and drive settings are controlled via internal trimmers.
Purple Octopus octave up - an analog octave up effect pedal that mimics classic octave pedals. You can adjust the output volume and even boost your signal through an internal trimmer.
Crimson tremolo - a compact pedal that reproduces the famous volume modulation tremolo effect. Controls for speed and depth are safely tucked inside the pedal.
Green Zapper auto filter - a compact envelope filter pedal that cuts down on some of the harsh sounds that modern filters produce. Internal trimmers control sensitivity and range.
The No-Knobber pedal line is currently available through various retail stores, carrying a tag price of $125. You can head over to Henretta Engineering for further details.

When you consider how much time and effort you put into getting your rig to sound just the way you want, it makes sense to ensure your guitar cables are also up to the job - after all they're an important part of the tone chain. Also remember that occasionally things will go wrong, so always carry at least one spare cable to gigs and rehearsals.
