Calandria is a unique, all analog, tone shaping tool.
I’ve always loved the way certain great players have had a tone that just erupts out of the mix. Boldly standing out. Unmistakeable and unmissable.
Mick Ronson. Brian May. Randy Rhoads. To name a few.
The secret for a lot of those players has been the use of some sort of frequency specific boost.
Calandria is in essence a parametric equaliser with separate controls for low, high and a sweep-able midrange.
The midrange allows you up to a massive 20dB boost or cut on the frequency band ranging from 400hz up to 10 kKhz.
With a “Q” specially tailored for guitar.
Calandria is a beautiful tone sculpting device.
Incredibly useful and remarkably musical.
Calandria can be used in myriad of musically helpful ways.
She can be used as a clean boost.
She can be used to delicately shape your tone, adding nuance and attention to certain key frequencies.
She can be used to easily push a tube amplifier into gorgeous overdrive.
She can be used to push a tube amplifier into overdrive and push certain resonant frequencies allowing you to dial in feedback/ infinite sustain points.
With external controls for low, high , mid range frequency, midrange boost/cut and internal control for master volume, Calandria is an incredibly versatile
addition to your sonic resources. I designed her to run at 18 volts (via an internally boosted voltage) allowing substantially greater headroom than 9 volt tone shaping pedals.
Only 49 Calandria will ever be built. Each Calandria is built by hand, using through hole components and hand wiring. By me.
Housed in a gorgeous enclosure with art that encapsulates the beautiful and alluring spirit of Calandria (the artwork is my personal favourite thus far).
Each unit is hand signed and numbered, by me.
