Freeze That Sound and Hold It!

Count on the mad geniuses at Electro-Harmonix to give you the power to freeze and hold your guitar's notes and chords - for as long as you like! The aptly named Freeze sound-retainer pedal lets you play a note or a chord, hit the pedal, and freeze that sound in sustained place, indefinitely. You can choose between fast or slow decay to let the sound fade out. Or choose the Latch function and let the sound continuously sustain for as long as you like. Best of all, once you've captured a sustained sound, you can continue to play over it. It's an amazing self-accompaniment tool! Freeze also lets you dial in exactly the amount of effect you want, so it's perfect for a wide range of applications.

Great Pedal!!

Amazing Sound and love the options on it! Arrived extremely Fast Thanks to the Great Cutomer Service by Ryan!!

One of my favorite and most used pedals on my board.

Does what I want it to do when I want it to do it. Solid and sturdy and well designed. A great secret to have on stage. And of course, ordering it from Sweetwater, as with everything else I've purchased through them, the support and guidance (thanks Evann) is always stellar, reassuring and helpful. What a great product (Freeze) through a coo-a** company.

really cool pedal!

I love this pedal! We were recording, I played a chord and FROZE it. During the next droning 10 minutes, I noticed the character of the sound changed.... I play through a tube amp, the gain was at about 1/2. There were overtones, harmonics, coming and going. Perfect for the ambient/psych style we do! Highly recommended!

Make mine Frozen

I've been having a ball with this pedal since it arrived the other day. Looking forward to tomorrow night's rehearsal when I can break it in with the band. So far I really dig using the momentary switch with mid level decay while soloing. Grabbing accent notes and holding them - then bending them to get some really cool dissonance. A totally new twist. Gotta love a new toy.
