Celebrating the classic, shimmering flanger sounds of Andy Summers, the EHX Walking on the Moon is a tribute to the tones Andy employed while carving his niche in the early days of playing with the Police. Liquid flange effects that hint toward chorus with extra depth and nuance make Andy’s sound one of the most coveted in all of the guitar universe.
“This beautiful shimmering which sort of made the sound more bigger and more glamourous…became a sort of characteristic of my guitar sound…A big part of my guitar sound at that time in The Police was the flange sound which we have here today in this great new pedal.” – Andy Summers
The Andy Summers Walking on the Moon is an analog flanger with a simple but powerful control set of RATE, RANGE, and COLOR. RATE sets the speed of modulation which ranges from slow, smooth filter sweeps to jittering vibrato. RANGE controls how narrow or wide the effect sweeps into the bass frequency range. The COLOR control effects the intensity of the flanger effect from subtle chorusing effects to classic jet woosh sounds. These three controls interact to create a wide breath of modulation effects.
Additionally, the Walking on the Moon includes a FILTER MATRIX which disengages the LFO from the flanger circuit, freezing the flanger giving a fixed filter effect, which can add chime or metallic overtones to your sound without the movement of a traditional modulation pedal. A DRY output allows you to split your dry signal from the effected signal.
