Quintessence Harmonizer is a state-of-the-art intelligent harmonizer pedal featuring expressive MASH technology and powerful TonePrint® customization.
Beefing up your sound in any musical style from country or
southern rock harmonies to Thin Lizzy-esque twin riffs and
screaming metal leads, Quintessence follows your every whim with
perfectly harmonized notes in a wide variety of modes and
With MASH, Quintessence can bend the harmonized notes without you moving a finger, momentarily harmonize just a few bars or notes and with our proprietary TonePrint® technology you can even choose exotic scales and custom intervals for harmonies.
With up to 2 perfectly tracking harmonies and
an intuitive, straightforward design,
Quintessence simply sounds stunning.
- 8 default harmonies and 3 TonePrint harmonies
- 7 diatonic scales and a custom scale setting
- Expressive MASH technology
MASH puts the pedal in pedal steel
Quintessence features a MASH footswitch giving you a powerful expressive tool without taking up any extra pedalboard real estate.
By default the MASH switch has been assigned to bend your
harmonized note up to the next interval within the scale but in
TonePrint mode, you can assign MASH to control just about any
aspect of the pedal including custom scale steps - both above and
below the original harmony.
This not only makes the Quintessence much more versatile as you can switch between two different intervals mid-song without having to fiddle with knobs, but it also lets you do fluid pedal steel bends worthy of the greasiest Nashville honky-tonks out there.
Master your scales
If you don't feel like using one of the seven preset diatonic modes commonly used, the Custom scale mode lets you load in whichever flavor of tonality you want your harmonies to follow.
When Quintessence is not in TonePrint mode, the Custom mode is set for Locrian. Using the three TonePrint slots however, you can set it to a wealth of different custom scales.
Feeling major pentatonic or harmonic minor today? Have at it, Hoss!
Triple TonePrint Treasures
Of course, you get three TonePrint slots to get you safely
through your set list, allowing you to customize your own harmonies
with one or two extra voices on top of your dry signal in any way
The free TonePrint editor gives you access to a wealth of tweakable parameters to get you exactly the harmonies you want.
Instead of spending your time, trying to find your own Dickey Betts or Marty Friedman for your band - Quintessence has your back and is always in tune.
