GIVEAWAY EXTENDED UNTIL THE 27TH OF NOVEMBER 2015!
We’ve been racing to keep up with the demands of Pedal Finder over the last few weeks and putting everything back together after our last giveaway for the Outlaw Effects Boilermaker Boost. But, with everything we have going on, we wanted to just jump right back in and get another giveaway going. This time we have a real treat because we are giving away a Limited Edition Gold Harmonic Decoder from Sunsine Audio.
If you already know what the Harmonic Decoder is capable of and you just want to know how you can enter the contest, then skip down to the section marked ‘Contest Details.’
Typically, I’d write a bunch about a pedal and the company behind it, as way of introduction, but because the Harmonic Decoder is so unique, I think it’s best to have you spend a few minutes viewing this introduction from Fletcher (the guy behind Sunsine Audio). Check this out!
In case you didn’t catch all those words streaming by in the video, this is what it says:
A phase-locked loop (PLL) is an electronic circuit with a voltage – or current – driven oscillator that is constantly adjusted to match in phase (and thus lock on) the frequency of an input signal. In addition to stabilizing a particular communications channel, a PLL can be used to generate a signal, modulate or demodulate a signal, reconstitute a signal, or multiple or divide a frequency. PLL circuits are commonly found in touch tone phones, dial up modems, radio control systems, Laser Tag games and infrared remote controls.
He created a pedal based on some of the same technology used in Laser Tag. More of that please!
If all of that science and electronic jargon is just a bit much to digest, then just use your ears. The unique sounds coming out of this pedal have a great deal of diversity with the controls that Fletcher has presented. As expressed on his website, “The Harmonic Decoder can sound like a fuzz, an octave/harmony pedal, a filter/wah, a complex waveshaper or some crazy bent 8 bit glitch box.” Three knobs, one toggle, one switch and tons of control allowing you to paint a plethora of tonal landscapes. A nice addition for the ‘board that has everything.’
Over the course of the giveaway, we will be learning a great deal more about Sunsine Audio, including an interview with Fletcher – the owner/designer/builders behind this Williamsport, Pennsylvania effects creator. So keep an eye on the Pedal Finder FB and Instagram accounts for updates and new information. And don’t forget to check out Sunsine Audio’s Website (if you can’t wait to win a Harmonic Decoder – you can purchase one there!) or keep up with him on Facebook or Instagram.
This time around we are looking for fresh pedal reviews. Existing members of Pedal Finder know the drill. Every effects pedal review you submit will get you one entry to win the Sunsine Audio Limited Edition Gold Harmonic Decoder. Just think of the pedals you have played, visit the pedals detail page at Pedal Finder and leave a review. It’s that easy! If you need a refresher on how to leave a review so it counts for an entry into the giveaway, check out our How To Leave A Pedal Review primer.

If the 24 hours passes and we don’t hear back, we repeat the process until we confirm a winner. And remember, this contest is open to everyone – even our visitors outside the United States.
