Overview

1876: Thomas Alva Edison presents the first phonograph on wax cylinder. 1887: Emile Berliner presents the gramophone on shellac disk. 1963: Philips introduces the Compact Cassette which, together with the 1969 MicroCassette, made it universally easy to capture sound events with a miniaturized, lightweight device. It took decades of research before every analog medium achieved excellent audio performance. Before then, every audio recorder had some peculiarities that marked an era: from the "mechanical" response full of noise and scratch of the first phonographs, to the low bandwidth available and with a nasal and floating voice of Compact Cassettes, especially if recorded / listened by cheap or worn devices. Golden Era was created to faithfully reproduce the "non fidelity" of these audio recorders at the time of their introduction, taking you to other eras of analog audio recording: the Golden Eras.

Features

Golden Era was born from an idea of ​​James Edward Bagshaw, bandleader of Temples, transformed into reality by TEFI vintage lab. James always loved the character of vintage recordings and dreamt of a pedal that could create this in real time. The Golden Era pedal morphs sound into a bygone era; an era of analogue recording, where unintentional peculiarities and imperfect machines created mesmerising, unique sound palettes. The Golden Era will turn any sound coming from a guitar, synthesizer or modern recording in a analog-voiced record. Press the footswitch and enjoy your journey through the ages.
