ARIGATO neither seeks to recapture the sounds of the past, nor to be state of the art. It is a snapshot of a future we were promised as children. It is our way of saying thank you to customers who for years asked us for a phaser. (Really? A phaser???)
While capable of the airy psychedelia of classic units, this one is meant to rumble, wobble, shake, rattle, and roar. It is also capable of going fully wet for interesting vibrato sounds, max feedback for auto-wah sweeps, and a wide range of responsive shades throughout each control as they interact with the others.
We’re pretty excited about this release; the first pedal Philippe ever owned was a phaser, our team is a bunch of phase shifting nuts, and releasing this feels like coming home.
For those of you who didn't think you'd like a chorus, but fell in love with our Somersault™ pedal - we think you're going to really love this thing too. While we love classic one-knob units and their ALL CAPS WHOOSH approach to phasing, there's a world of subtle shading and different movement to be explored, and Arigato is here for it.
