Collision Devices TARS, Silver on White Overview

Drawing inspiration from the flagship Black Hole Symmetry, the TARS inherits its coveted Singularity fuzz section. This time, it goes a step further by incorporating a versatile gain setting, allowing you to traverse a spectrum of grainy low-gain sounds to robust and potent fuzz/distortion tones.

A special feature of the TARS is its filter, inspired by the legendary Korg MS-20. This addition enables you to craft fuzzy-noisy textures and effortlessly slice through any mix. Taking control into your hands, the filter is managed through two faders, delivering a truly unique and hands-on tweaking experience. Moreover, for a more immersive experience, you can use the expression input to dynamically sweep through the frequency range, creating a thrilling and vertiginous dive into the Singularity!

With the TARS, you embark on a celestial odyssey, merging the best of both guitar and synth worlds, granting you boundless creative potential and a captivating journey through the cosmos of sound.
