Synthesizer players understand the importance of being able to shape the attack, decay, sustain, and release of each note, also known as ADSR. This great demo by JustNick shows how the new Malekko Sneak Attack ($189 street) brings these sound sculpting abilities to guitarists. You can use it for a wide range of tremolo effects, auto-volume swells, chop and repeater sounds, It can also make the guitar’s sound more keyboard or banjo-like. The Lil Buddy expander adds tap tempo capabilities and manual triggering (also possible with the pedal’s bypass switch). The Sneak Attack can also be synced with an external click track. Thanks to JA Deane for hipping us to this cool pedal.
