TWA Little Dipper Stomp Box Belleville NJ

The TWA Little Dipper LD-01 blurs the line between envelope filter, talk box, and just plain whackedout effect. Sporting Ascension, Diffraction, and Inclination controls, as well as two internal trimpots that adjust the wet/dry signal and the onboard noise gate’s threshold, the Little Dipper gets freaky the minute you plug it in.

TWA Little Dipper Stomp Box

gp0410_gear8463With blindingly bright LEDs in the shape of a popular constellation, as well as one of the most hilarious Japan-centric user manuals I’ve ever seen, the TWA Little Dipper LD-01 ($300 retail/street price N/A) blurs the line between envelope filter, talk box, and just plain whackedout effect. Sporting Ascension, Diffraction, and Inclination controls, as well as two internal trimpots that adjust the wet/dry signal and the onboard noise gate’s threshold, the Little Dipper gets freaky the minute you plug it in. The Ascension knob controls the depth and threshold of the filter, while the Diffraction control brings on a tiny, in-the-background fuzz—this adds a bit of synth-like character, especially to lowstring riffs. The nut of the LD-01 is the four-way rotary Inclination control, which is sort of a “mode” switch that decides the overall tonality of the filter: from warm and throaty to sinewy and piercing. It’s safe to say that between these four modes and the Ascension and Diffraction controls there are hundreds of freaky, farty, funky, and squirty, tones at your fingertips. Some of the vowel-like textures can get pretty hilarious, and I challenge you to not move your mouth when you’re playing—trust me, it’s hard not to do! The Little Dipper also does a great job at delivering more subtle textures. I particularly dug the tweezed, notched midrange tones and the standard envelope filter squawks, which yielded some neat Zappa-type flavors. The Little Dipper is an excellent choice for interesting tones in the studio, and although it can be used live, its beauty is in all the knobturning sonic discoveries it offers.
