Pitch-based effects pedals are becoming increasingly sophisticated, with polyphonic tracking capabilities, intelligent harmony production and more. But what if you just want the simplicity of a good old analogue sub-octave pedal?
Well, KMA Machines has announced an update to its Queequeg Sub Generator, with the Queequeg 2. Equipped with a new, additional sub-octave and a jazzed-up facelift, the Queequeg 2 (borrowing its name from the Moby Dick character) builds on its predecessor's single sub-octave range, giving you minus-one and minus-two octaves below your original signal.
The octaves are selected via a mini-toggle, which can give you either sub-octave individually, or both at once for bowel-bothering three-octave (including your dry signal) unison lines.
Your sub-octave divisions are dialled-in via the single-knob mix control, allowing you to adjust the blend between your original signal and the generated octaves, and thanks to the multi-coloured LED you'll be able to see at-a-glance which mode you have activated.
The KMA Machines Queequeg 2 is handmade in Germany, and powered by a standard 9-volt, centre-negative power supply. It's available now priced at £129.
