The Electro-Faustus Noise Devices EF110 Blackfly Metallic Swarm Generator is a spring-equipped instrument that spits an array of sonic characteristics that make it ideal for noise musicians, sound designers, and dabblers alike!
The pedal is controlled via four springs that are arranged in terms of pitch, from low to high. Accordingly, these springs can be manipulated in a variety of ways to produce a stunning range of possible tones. There’s also a Swat switch that is essentially a momentary switch that can be utilized for unique cut-up style effects, as well as a Swarm switch that determines the frequency of the output tone.
