Tortuga Effects Dirty Martini Dual Analog Chorus and Vibrato


The Martini is the most successful pedal in the Tortuga line. Hundreds of players swear by it's lush, truly analog tone and would never chose another chorus over it. Since it's release in 2009, the Martini™ has remained unchanged and Tortuga intend to keep it that way. That being said, there sure is a lot of cool stuff you can do with the circuit so they've finally put all their favorite mods in one box. 

One look at the Dirty Martini and it may appear to be an original Martini with cool new graphics and an extra "Olive" control. Well, the Dirty Martini is more than just an extra knob. The Olive knob is a feedback control usually seen on flangers. By adding it to a Martini you have the choice of turning it down for a lush chorus or blending it up to add depth and swirl unlike any chorus on the market. Turn it all the way up and you'll get a huge, sweep of vibrato, delay and choral wash that will take you to another planet. Now, with the Olive knob down, the Dirty Martini is not just a standard Martini. It is a beautiful, lush chorus like the Martini but with a completely different flavor. Tortuga tweaked the Dirty Martini's chorus circuit and made it more glassy and gave it more presence than the original. In addition to the circuit tweaks and the additional Olive knob, the Dirty Martini still has two channels where on the second you have the choice of chorus or vibrato. This way you can set the first channel up for a swirly analog chorus and the second side as a faster, pitch vibrato that you can switch between on the fly. 

The original Martini is the head of the Tortuga Family and the Dirty Martini is it's slightly crazy, gin drinking, loud mouth big brother.
