So what exactly is a Jellifish?
Like the capo and slide, the Jellifish is a mechanical tool for your stringed instrument. (Although the Jellifish was originally designed with the guitar in mind, we have many bass, mandolin and banjo players among our customers.) To make this new tool easy-to-use, we designed the Jellifish to be held like a guitar pick...and, honestly, that's where the similarities end. The Jellifish itself isn't a guitar pick, nor does it replace your existing picks. Rather, as one of our astute customers recently said, "It's like a $10 stomp-box!" Exactly! (We couldn't have said it better ourselves!)
What does the Jellifish sound like?
There are 3 trademark sounds that you'll get using the Jellifish on a 6-string. These are known as Chorus! Pluck! & Bow!
Chorus! is most often compared to the sound of a 12-string guitar or a chorus pedal. Pluck! is said to sound like a hammered dulcimer or music box. And Bow! is typically compared to the sound of a cello.
These descriptions are best suited to describing the results you will get using the Jellifish on an acoustic guitar. Since you can combine the Jellifish with other effects, especially on an electric instrument, Chorus! Pluck! and Bow! are only the foundations, not the limits, for your sonic explorations with the Jellifish.
For example, by using the Chorus! technique with a slide, you can get a unique resonator-like quality from an open-tuned guitar. Similarly, the Bow! technique sounds great with some delay on a slightly distorted electric guitar.
We suggest that you launch your sonic explorations with the Jellifish by first learning all 3 of the basic techniques (Chorus! Pluck! and Bow!) on an acoustic or clean-channel electric guitar. You can then branch-out from there.
