What We Think

Condition: Used, Excellent

Manufacturer's Description from Other

TARS is a fuzz/analog filter pedal. It means "This Audio Reached Singularity".

It’s a robot looking for life in space too. But that’s a long story we’ll tell you in the user manual.

TARS’ fuzz part comes from the Black Hole Symmetry "Singularity" section. 

Put it through the analog "MS-20 style" filter to create fuzzy-noisy textures. 

Cut through the mix with the different filter and EQ possibilites or sweep between the frequencies to create huge waves of noise.
