F-Pedals Announces the Robotholic

Los Angeles-based F-Pedals has teamed up with recording engineer Eddie Kramer to unveil the Robotholic. The first in their new Pulse of Rebellion series, the pedal brings together a range of effects including a clean boost, a crunchy drive, heavy distortion, and an “analog-ringmod-resembling effect.”

F-Pedals Robotholic Pedal

The Robotholic has four knobs – Mix, Pitch, Drive, and Rate – for dialing in your sound. A Lo-Fi switch acts as a high-pass filter to emulate an old AM speaker for further sound experimentation. The compact pedal has an external expression input for connecting a pedal to change the modulation rate.

F-Pedal’s Robotholic comes in two versions. The Standard version can run on the company’s F-Power wireless power supply and has chrome finish bolts, while the Lite version can only run on the standard 9-volt DC supply. They are both manufactured in Naples, Italy and assembled in Studio City, California. The Robotholic Standard carries a street price of $179 and the Lite Version carries a price of $119.
