Bob Weil and R.G. Keen worked hard to design this pedal for you, using their ears and engineering skill to produce the best
effects possible. They also tested the pedals during the design phase with many great guitarists to get their opinions on tone
and features. What resulted is the pedal you’re holding right now. Not only will you love the sound of your new pedal, but you 
can rely on it to last for many years to come.  

The new switching system in the V2 Series is designed to last for 10 million foot-stomps...yes, that’s basically forever! All the 
jacks including the power jack are hand-wired, point-to-point, to the circuit board so if you accidentally step on a plug, it will 
keep on working. Even if you plug in a 9VAC power supply by mistake, it won’t burn up your pedal as would happen in most 
other effects...it won’t work, but it won’t do any damage. As always, Visual Sound effects pedals can take a variety of 
musician rated 9VDC adapters*, including of course the 1 SPOT

®

power supply made by Visual Sound.  

You will also benefit from the Pure Tone buffer circuit used in all Visual Sound effects pedals since 1997. The Pure Tone 
circuit is a unity gain pre-amp buffer designed to make your guitar sound like it’s plugged directly into the amp even if it’s 
going through long cables and many other effects pedals...something “true-bypass” pedals could never give you.

Use this instruction manual as a guide for getting started with great tones from your new V2 Series pedal. Of course, 
you should experiment with your own settings as well...there are no rules when it comes to discovering your own sound. 
Just find the tones that inspire you to play. That’s what it’s all about!

*Boss, Ibanez, Dunlop, Morley, Voodoo Labs and other musician rated 9VDC power supplies will also work (output plug with center pin negative)...do not use Radio Shack or other non-musician 
power supplies. Shameless promotional plug:  The 1 SPOT is the best 9VDC power supply for all your pedals!

Anyone who has ever tried the 

H2O

pedal has loved it. “Warm”, “liquid”,

and “lush” are some of the words frequently used to describe this pedal.
The new 

V2 Series

H2O

gives the same great tone guitarists have come

to love over the years, but with all the advantages of 

V2

construction.  

Chorus

Echo

, or both...use each channel by itself or combine them

just as you would two separate pedals! The 

Chorus

channel is

a wonderfully voiced effect for electric, acoustic, or bass
guitar, using pure analog circuitry. At the heart of the 

Chorus

circuit are custom designed Visual Sound “bucket brigade”
chips. Use the 

Norm/Lush

switch to set the overall style of

Chorus and the user-friendly knobs for the settings. The 

Echo

channel is a hybrid digital and analog circuit for the best of both
worlds...long delay times with warm, natural repeats. There is
even a second (non-effected) output jack for stereo amplifier
setups. On the following pages are some settings to get you started...

octave up with the Anger Level knob and get crazy low octave overtones to

boot! Octave tracking is flawless even with the fastest shredding imaginable.

Unlike most companies, Visual Sound puts a lot of thought into cheap accessories.

Believe it or not, the Multi-Plug 5 and 8 Cables are the only “daisy chain” cables featuring right angle plugs 

and over 12” (300mm) between each plug. We even designed spring-loaded input socket contacts so your 

MC5, MC8, or converter won’t unplug unless you want it to.
