With a uniquely innovative approach, the Element incorporates cutting edge design and technology

into a seemingly simple device. On the surface, this useful headphone amp is designed to handle the

very core task of every musician - practice. But the Element goes much further than that, making it a

crafted tool to expand your musical reach.

 

Main Features

  • HQ Headphone Amp - drives 2 sets of headphones
  • IR Cabinet Simulations
  • Free Darkglass Suite - for loading additional IRs via USB or Bluetooth
  • Bluetooth and 3.5 mm Aux connections – allows jamming with backing tracks
  • Tough metal housing with unique control surface
  • Powered by 9-12 V DC PSU (centre -, 2.1 mm, ~ 250 mA current draw)

 

(centre -, 2.1 mm, ~ 250 mA current draw)

Inspired by the touch sensor technology used in our Hyper Luminal·Compressor, this non-conventional

pedal is completely minimalistic with a plain surface and zero knobs. Element utilises three fullytactile

slider potentiometers, each with positioning LEDs. These not only render the Element visually

appealing, it also makes it extremely intuitive to use.

Out of the box, Element offers a bank of 5 cabinet simulations and the ability to add many more through the Darkglass Suite, via USB

or wirelessly via Bluetooth. In addition to a continuously increasing database of Impulse Responses, the Darkglass Suite also has the

potential to load any custom IR that you may have, from different sources. Plus, as time goes on, there will be future upgrades that further

increases the functionality of the device.

Fully compatible with bass, electric guitars or indeed any kind of instrument, this headphone amplifier is the complete device for

instrumentalists wanting/requiring silent practice at home or as the end of a pedalboard signal chain. You even can even hook it up to an

amplifier output (with a separate load or speaker cabinet connected) and send the signal out to the PA or to recording systems via the

XLR DI output.

Add in the latest Bluetooth A2DP technology to listen to backing tracks from your smartphone or tablet while playing, rehearsing or

studying, two headphone outputs to allow interaction with other players and the Element becomes one of the most helpful tools you will

have to help you make music!

CITES

CITES regulations concerning the export of items containing certain woods affect any guitar sold ouside of the European Union and which contains any quantity of either Rosewood or Bubinga.  In these cases, an additional charge of £80.00 will be levied per species after the sale to pay for the required re-export certificate.  There will be a delay in dispatching any guitar containing either Bubinga or Rosewood of up to 4 weeks while we obtain the necessary certification for export. As the charge is per species, where a guitar contains both Bubinga AND Rosewood, the charge is doubled to £160.00.  We will contact you following your purchase of any guitar containing a controlled wood and advise of the charge once you have placed the order.  You can make payment for the charge by sending a Paypal payment to us at: sales@fxpedal.co.uk. 

Note that CITES only applies to guitars containing Rosewood or Bubinga that are being exported outside the European Union.  Guitars being delivered with the United Kingdom or in the European Union will be dispatched as normal.
