A little wonder
Joaquin R., 16.05.2013
The Freeze pedal was a real discovery for me. It's a very simple pedal with only one feature (usable in three different modes) but you like that feature, you're going to absolutely love this pedal.
You will like it if:
a) You like to create textured/ambient sounds for your songs. The chime-like frozen sustain you can make is great for creating a bed of sound for songs. Alternatively, freezing a single distorted note can add some real grit if that's what you're looking for.
b) You like to indulge a bit in David Gilmoresque solos. Just freeze a single chord and then start soloing over it like there's no tomorrow. You can practically play the first 5 minutes of Shine on you crazy diamond by yourself with a freeze pedal (and an ebow for the first bit).

It's a Electro Harmonix pedal so you can expect the quality to be good. It's very light but feels solid enough. I've found I only end up using two modes (latch and slow decay). The frozen sound you get is very good and clean, chime-like for trebley sounds and droning for the lower notes, though it works best without distortion/OD as too much OD will make it sound too muddy/heavy.

Cool trick I discovered recently: Freeze a note/chord, then activate a pedal with reverse delay on it and play around with the delay/feedback time.

A Cool Breeze
Seemon, 21.04.2017
I use this for a Bass guitar and learn the modes of in jazz music.

It really have to build the sound up easily and understand the harmony better.

pros
Good for live and learning, build like a tank

cons
in these days, I think this can be replaced for an apps easily, for this price to buy one pedel with one function....think that for yourself.


From unobtrusive to radical, the Freeze is a gadget that rouses innovative playing without being gimmicky. The execution conceivable outcomes?from filling stripped space in a band game plan to in-your-face freakouts?are fascinating. Be that as it may, regardless of the possibility that you don't expect to record or play live with the Freeze, you'll discover it's an extraordinary device for forming music and amicability without anyone else's input. EHX has executed this impact with such straightforwardness', will undoubtedly speak to players and tweakers of all sorts and capacities
