Title
(EN) WIRELESS FOOT-OPERATED EFFECTS PEDAL FOR ELECTRIC STRINGED MUSICAL INSTRUMENT
(FR) PÉDALE D'EFFETS SANS FIL ACTIONNÉ AU PIED POUR INSTRUMENT DE MUSIQUE ÉLECTRIQUE À CORDES
Abstract
(EN)
A footswitch controller for an electric stringed musical instrument is provided. In one embodiment, the footswitch controller comprises a foot pedal assembly, base assembly, bottom plate assembly, battery pocket assembly, and compound assembly. The footswitch controller does not directly alter the input sound, but upon activation by a user sends a signal to the digital signal processor within the electric stringed musical instrument to alter the sound.
(FR)
L'invention concerne une unité de commande de pédale pour un instrument de musique électrique à cordes. Dans un mode de réalisation, l'unité de commande de pédale comprend un ensemble pédale, un ensemble base, un ensemble plaque inférieure, un ensemble poche de batterie et un ensemble composé. L'unité de commande de pédale ne modifie pas directement le son d'entrée, mais lors de l'activation par un utilisateur, elle envoie un signal au processeur de signal numérique au sein de l'instrument de musique électrique à cordes pour modifier le son.
