Product Description

The Earthquaker Devices Night Wire is a feature-rich harmonic tremolo. What is harmonic tremolo? In short, the signal is split into high pass and low pass filters, then modulated with an LFO that is split 180 degrees. The Night Wire takes the traditional harmonic tremolo a few steps further by allowing the center point of both filters to be adjusted for different tones.



The filter frequency has three modes: Manual, LFO and Attack. In Manual mode, the center point can be set to a fixed position with the frequency control. In LFO mode, the filters are continuously swept and the frequency control adjusts the speed. In Attack mode, the filters are dynamically swept according to pick attack and the frequency control acts as a range control, much like a standard envelope filter.

The tremolo section has two modes, Manual and Attack. In Manual mode, the speed of the tremolo is governed by where the rate control is set. In Attack mode the speed is controlled by pick attack and the rate controls the sensitivity; the harder you pick, the faster the rate and vice-versa.

The tremolo can be subtle and shimmery or full-on throbbing depending on where the depth control is set. With the depth set to zero, the Night Wire will act like a fixed filter, phase shifter or envelope-controlled filter depending on which mode the filter frequency is in. It also features a cut/boost volume control to get your levels just right. Each Earthquaker Night Wire is hand made one at a time in the moonlit village of Akron, Ohio.

This device is true bypass and uses relay based "soft touch" switching. Audio will not pass without power.

EarthQuaker Devices Night Wire V2 Wide Range Harmonic Tremolo Pedal Features

  • Harmonic Tremolo
  • Depth control adjusts tremolo intensity from subtle and shimmery to full-on throbbing pulsations
  • With Depth at minimum, Night Wire can double as a fixed filter for cocked-wah sounds, phaser, or envelope-controlled filter, depending on Frequency toggle switch position
  • Level control offers output boost above unity gain to combat perceived volume loss
    • Two-way Rate toggle switch selects Manual or Attack modes:
    • Manual: Rate control adjusts tremolo speed as normal
  • Attack: Tremolo speed determined by intensity of pick attack; the harder you pick, the faster the tremolo. Tremolo rate slows down as notes decay.
  • Three-way Frequency toggle switch selects between Manual, Attack, and LFO modes:
    • Manual: Filter frequency determined by Frequency control position
    • Attack: Filter center frequency determined by pick attack; Frequency control position adjusts sensitivity
    • LFO: Filter frequency continuously swept by LFO; Frequency control position adjusts LFO sweep speed
  • New flexi-switch switching allows for momentary or traditional latching operation
  • True bypass
  • Silent relay-based switching
  • Current draw: 30mA
  • Each Night Wire is hand made one at a time in Akron, Ohio.

Product Specifications

Product Specifications
Rate Toggle: This toggle lets you select between two ways to control the speed of the tremolo. Attack lets you adjust the speed by pick attack. In this mode, the Rate knob controls the sensitivity of the dynamic tremolo. The higher the rate and harder you pick, the faster the speed will rise and vice versa. In Manual mode, the Rate control adjusts the speed like a common tremolo.
Frequency Toggle: This toggle lets you select one of 3 different ways to control the center frequency of the filter section. In LFO mode, the frequency is continuously swept by an LFO. In this mode, the Frequency knobs adjusts the speed of the LFO. In Manual mode, the frequency is determined by where the Frequency knob is set. In Attack mode, the center frequency is dynamically controlled by pick attack and the Frequency knob adjusts the sensitivity.
Level: Sets the output level, unity is around noon.
Depth: Adjusts the depth of the tremolo. More clockwise, less counterclockwise. When fully counterclockwise, the amplitude modulation will be removed and the Night Wire will function as a fixed filter, envelope controlled filter or phaser depending on where the frequency toggle is set.
Rate:  In manual mode, this controls the speed of the tremolo. Faster speed clockwise and slower speed counterclockwise. In Attack mode, this controls the sensitivity of the dynamic tremolo. The higher the rate and harder you pick, the faster the speed will rise and vice versa.
Frequency: Controls the center frequency of the filters in manual mode: higher clockwise, lower counterclockwise. In LFO mode this controls the rate of the sweep: faster clockwise and slower counterclockwise. In Attack mode this controls the sensitivity of the envelope: lower Frequency gives slower rise and lower peak, higher Frequency gives faster rise and higher peak. Simple, right? -
Dimensions:
4.75'' x 2.50'' x. 2.25'' with knobs
Power:
Earthquaker pedals take a standard 9-volt DC power supply with a 2.1mm negative center barrel. They always recommend pedal-specific, transformer-isolated wall-wart power supplies or multiple isolated-output supplies. Pedals will make extra noise if there is ripple or unclean power. Switching-type power supplies, daisy chains and non-pedal specific power supplies do not filter dirty power as well and let through unwanted noise. Do not run at higher voltages!
Current Draw: 30 mA.
Switching: This device is true bypass and uses electronic relay based switching. Audio will not pass without power. For standard latching operation, tap the footswitch once to activate the effect and then tap again to bypass. For momentary operation, hold the footswitch down.

This thing is rad!
What is your opinion of this product?
Is it a tremolo? A phaser? An envelope filter? Actually, it's some combo of all these things! As with all the Earthquaker boxes in my arsenal, this thing contains so much awesomeness which inspires your creativity and allows your playing to go in directions that it might not have gone otherwise. Def check out Andy's demo on YT for a great show of the variety of killer tones this thing brings to the table. Cheers!

Best pedal I’ve ever used.
What is your opinion of this product?
Honesty most tremolo pedals are super bland to me, this guy though is perfect. So many functions and sounds in this little box, and a space saver on my board with the input plugins on the top. I would highly recommend this pedal over most other tremolo pedals.

One of my favorites...
What is your opinion of this product?
I have the Hummingbird as well, but this is a completely different sounding device. Earthquaker devices has definitely impressed me. Lots of options to vary the tremelo sound and rate. Very satisfied.
