ToneFreq's Daily Pedal: Toadworks Barracuda Analog Flanger Pedal

In the Spring of 1977, millions of music fans rushed home to throw the new Heart album "Little Queen" on their record players. What they heard was one of the most explosive and powerful guitar riffs in the history of Rock & Roll.

The men playing that riff were Howard Leese & Roger Fisher, and the magic behind that sound was a custom-made analog flanger unit. Working closely with Howard Leese, ToadWorks has created an authentic, accurate emulation of the original custom-made flanger used on the 1977 smash-hit "Barracuda".

ToadWorks USA is proud to announce the release of the Howard Leese Signature Model analog flanger, Barracuda.

ToadWorks Barracuda is the ONLY production effect pedal that is designed to reproduce the unique flanger sounds featured on the 1977 Heart classic "Barracuda".

The circuit is a modern interpretation of the original custom unit, with a few exciting changes:

Designed around modern components
Stereo Output
Manual sweep control via an Expression Pedal
Addition of Level and Depth controls
Uses 9V DC power
Improved noise floor
Superior construction

As with all ToadWorks effect pedals, Barracuda ® is wired for true-bypass.
