Shortly after the release of the Pink Flow multi pedal JAM Pedals started receiving continuous requests to build custom stand alone Seagull effects pedals. In seeking to address this demand their way, JAM Pedals introduced the Seagull as part of their standard line, with improved controls and extended functionality.
Choose between the distinct "seagull" sound heard in Pink Floyd's "Echoes" or vocal, vintage cocked wah tones, courtesy of the celebrated Red Fasel inductor also found in the JAM Pedals Wahcko.
We hope the JAM Pedals Seagull inspires you to create unique sonic moments and have a wah-nderfull time while you are at it!
Two Pedals In One
Outside of the traditional seagull effect the JAM Pedals Seagull allows you to access a full range of cocked wah sounds. Pair with your favourite fuzz pedal, overdrive pedal or distortion pedal to add the legendary wah filter and cut through the mix with tons of vintage mid range sass!
"David Gilmour explains in an interview with Guitar Player (January 09):
"We discovered it as the result of a serendipitous accident that happened in about 1969 or 1970, when a roadie had plugged the wah in the wrong way, and I stomped into it and got this incredible screaming noise."
The brilliance of this effect isn't really the effect, but the fact that David went ahead and explored how he could tame and integrate the effect in a song after obviously having heard something that must have sounded quite horrible. Actually, David employed the effect long before Pink Floyd wrote Echoes. It can be heard during early live versions of the unreleased song Embryo
Echoes was premiered April 22 1970 in Norwich UK (introduced as Return of the Son of Nothing). The seagull sequence was now moved to Echoes from Embryo, which now featured echo swells produced with the Binson Echorec."
