Lehle Effects Pedals - The Lehle Story So who is Lehle Gitarrentechnik The man behind Lehle Gitarrentechnik is me, Burkhard Georg Lehle! I live with my family in Voerde, in Germany's Lower Rhine district (the "Niederrhein"), with the Lehle Gitarrentechnik workshops, where Lehle products are developed, built and marketed, along with the office, right next door. Do I need to mention that I also play guitar? My goal is to create and build rational, robust, technically sophisticated products. How it all started Blending music and technology has always fascinated me - by the age of 13 I was playing electric guitar (and tuning it with no trouble, too!).

Lehle Effects Pedals - The Lehle Story So who is Lehle Gitarrentechnik The man behind Lehle Gitarrentechnik is me, Burkhard Georg Lehle! I live with my family in Voerde, in Germany's Lower Rhine district (the "Niederrhein"), with the Lehle Gitarrentechnik workshops, where Lehle products are developed, built and marketed, along with the office, right next door. Do I need to mention that I also play guitar? My goal is to create and build rational, robust, technically sophisticated products. How it all started Blending music and technology has always fascinated me - by the age of 13 I was playing electric guitar (and tuning it with no trouble, too!). Later, while at college (studying music and physics), I started repairing electric guitars and amps, so it was natural enough that that was what I chose to do after finishing college, setting up my own servicing workshop in the nearby town of Duisburg for local musicians. The idea behind the Lehle switcher Talking to musicians in the workshop meant that I always knew at first hand what problems they had, what they would like to see in the way of equipment, and where things could be improved. A good many mentioned switchers that would work dependably without loss of sound and without generating noise. Soon enough, I realized that there was no product on the market that would do that, which, of course, was the starting point for development of the first A/B- and A/B/C switchers. The development road The first generation of switchers I soldered and assembled myself in the course of 1999. Even these early models incorporated relays for the switching function, activated by a discrete logic control. The following year I developed an innovative housing style with an integrated button mechanism that set new standards for robustness and reliability and made it possible to produce larger numbers without sacrificing quality. Following the official market launch in 2001, this new generation of switchers is now available internationally from a selected range of importers and specialist outlets. Very pleasingly, several well-known guitarists have heard about the advantages they offer and now use Lehle switchers on a regular basis. New technologies An important milestone was the development of the Lehle D.Loop a Stereo Effect-Loop/Switcher featuring two separate loops and an integrated buffer amp. It is also, no less, the first example of a new generation of switchers, with the discrete switching logic arrangement replaced by an integrated microcontroller that makes switching even more user-friendly, improves timing, and will even process MIDI signals if you want it to. And: It was my great pleasure to unveil the Lehle D.Loop at the 2004 Namm Show in Anaheim, Ca., USA The Lehle LTHZ transformer It's inner values that count - and that's especially true of the Lehle Dual. Since December 2004, its central element has been the Lehle LTHZ, a high-impendence transformer that is decisive for faithful reproduction of guitar sounds. It was possible to achieve this aim only via the interaction of ultra modern materials and top quality components, a key factor in the quality of the Lehle LTHZ. This transformer is thus ideally suited to electrical isolation of the high impedance signals normal for electric guitar. Even now, it's becoming clear that the Lehle LTHZ is destined to revolutionize transformer technology. Lehle Switchers for everyone! I have developed the Little Lehle so that in future all players can have a Lehle switcher. The Little Lehle is universally suitable for use as a True Bypass Looper or Switcher, meets the genuine Lehle quality standard and is, of course, Made in Germany. Also available in the same format is the Lehle P-Split, a passive Splitter for high impedance signals. Like the Lehle Dual, the Lehle P-Split comes equipped with the new Lehle LTHZ transformer (view less)
