WD Music Products Green Ringer

WD Music Products Green Ringer

A very interesting and unique type of distortion device which produces ring modulation type effects. The Ringer gives much better control over the effect produced than a conventional ring modulator, since the player is no longer playing against an arbitrary modulator frequency.

  • This is the Dan Armstrong clone made in Korea by WD: Firstly: It's not a true ring mod... secondly, perhaps that makes it intersesting? well, maybe... it mostly works with harmonics. Just not suited to noise, unless you involve those vicious harmonies. also, if you're a diy'er do a google search and build your own.
  • Good Points: it's kinda unique. small. Zappa used one?? it can be interesting with the "right" sound.
  • Bad Points: four screws just to change the batterey? the whole design is a pain, unless you're attatching it to your guitar. The format of these WD things really suck unless

  • This is an oddbal gadget. First off, it's not a pedal. It's a little box with a 1/4" plug sticking out of the back of it. You plug it directly into whatever you want to affect with it. No knobs, nothing to tweak, just an on / off toggle. So how is it? It's a bit subtle for harsh noise. It adds a slight ammount of ring modulation, and buzzy transistor distortion to whatever you run through it. As the ammount of distortion / ring modulation are not adjustable, it tends to only be a subtle coloring of the signal as opposed to an over the top effect. When combined with a high gain effect it produces a nice, angry hornet type of fuzz with slight metalic overtones. Not bad at all for something so subtle on its own. Sadly there is a slight volume drop when it is engaged. If you're looking for a conventional ring modulator, look someplace else. If you want to add a nice subtle buzzing texture to your signal, this might do the job for you.
  • Good Points: Easy to use (on / off). Takes up very little room. Creates a nice transistor buzz when combined with high gain devices.
  • Bad Points: A bit too subtle for someone wanting a full on ring modulator. The odd plug in design can be a little difficult to plug into some pedals.
