Jack White’s Third Man, in conjunction with CopperSound Pedals, has announced a new pedal, entitled the Triplegraph.
The digital octave unit features three morse-code telegraph keys, as well as an effects loop and a variety of operating modes.
The leftmost key triggers an octave down effect, while the rightmost key triggers an octave up sound. The middle key’s operation depends on the pedal’s mode – in Kill mode, the centre switch cuts off your dry sound – and when used in conjunction with the other switches, still lets your octave up or down sound come through.
In Auxiliary mode, the centre switch sends you signal through the pedal’s effects loop as its held down. The octave sounds boast zero-latency tracking, and can work in either momentary or latching modes. The keys themselves are made from aluminium and stainless steel, so should stand the test of time – and repeated stamping.
Take a look at White himself demoing the pedal below.
It has been over four years in the making, with White testing out prototypes on the road and in the recording of The Raconteurs’ latest record Help Us Stranger. It came about after CopperSound Pedals gifted White a one-of-a-kind Telegraph Stutter, its momentary killswitch that uses the same mechanism. Within the hour, CopperSound received a call from Third Man staff saying that Jack had received the pedal, and saw more potential for it. He then mocked up the idea for a three-key version, which became the Triplegraph.
The Triplegraph comes in either standard or limited editions – $399 and $449 respectively – with the limited edition coming with an exclusive Yellow finish, black and white print, a custom steel machined serial badge plate, a Certificate of Authenticity signed by Jack White, and a custom-designed book. The Standard Edition is finished in a sharp, matte black finish with yellow and white print, packed in a standard box. Both models come with a 130-page book that documents the origin story of the pedal.
