Badlands is an incredible, 242,000 acre National Park in South Dakota. If you haven't gone, you should. The landscape is sparse, the flora and fauna are hardy as hell, and the rock formations rival Joshua Tree and Anza Borrego.
Badlands is based on the true-to-vintage Univibe chorus/vibrato effect with some of our classic Germanium touch. It features a Germanium output amplifier that beefs up and colors the signal for even more warmth and clarity than the original. We used a true 18v incandescent bulb, highly-tuned LDRs, and other awesome NOS vintage parts. It thumps, throbs, and will give you a tone of character in your vibe quest.

It is critical that you use a high quality, isolated and filtered 9v DC power supplies with The Americana Series. Every modern measure was taken to ensure quiet, recording-worthy noise suppression, but low-quality power and power supplies can inject unwanted noise in these effects. Even though we've designed them to play nicely on a daisy chain, we don't recommend it.
