During [an interview](http://www.sputnikmusic.com/forums/archive/index.php/t-462151...) about the recording process of Tool's album "10,000 Days" in the April 2006 issue of Guitar World Magazine, Adam Jones had this to say about his use of the Gig-FX Chopper pedal: "I had some custom pedals made. Our engineer on this album, Joe Barresi, is a pedal god, and he knows everyone, I used a Gig-FX Chopper pedal, which has a nice tremolo. We had them work on the pedal so I could go from a clean sound to tremolo and control the tremolo speed as well. The pedal lets me slow it down and speed it up, which really lends a lot of power for creating motion when we’re going from one part to another."more
In addition to astounding new effects, the Chopper will produce stellar versions of traditional effects such as tremolo, auto pan, and Leslie (rotating cabinet) effects, but all with a key difference--the frequency of the effects can be varied with the onboard pedal unit. No additional expression pedal is needed.
The output signal from the Chopper can be mono or stereo, but is infinitely more interesting in stereo. In stereo, the effect can be panned or "chopped" from one channel to another and combined in phase or out of phase in various ways to produce an infinite number of captivating sounds.
