Rodenberg Amplification Introduces the KILLMISTER Automatic Kill Switch Pedal
Rodenberg Amplification has unveiled a handy new pedal called the KILLMISTER. Named in homage to bass icon Lemmy, the device is an automatic kill switch that lets you cut your signal with eight settings.
Level 1 works as manual operation, simply killing your signal. The other seven levels are cutoff times ranging from 100ms to 400ms. Holding down the footswitch offers an “automatic machine gun fire” effect.
“It’s not just about a simple, crazy effect pedal, the KILLMISTER can also be integrated into the entire song,” Rodenberg says. “Stuttering rhythm sounds and screeching solos with an automatic kill effect are no longer a problem. That is not a tremolo effect, but a real kill break against ground. The KILLMISTER can be placed anywhere in the signal chain before the amp as a hard kill, or into the fx loop as a hard kill with reduced switching noise.”
The compact pedal also has a red status LED light to visually display the kill cycle. The Rodenberg Amplification KILLMISTER is handmade in Germany. It’s available now for $90.
