Emma Electronic has updated their flagship envelope filter for 2017. The DB-2 DiscumBOBulator builds on its predecessor, which was released nearly 20 years ago, with new features for increased versatility. Specifically, it has an increased frequency range, improved tracking, increased headroom, and a new dedicated clean boost that can run with or independent of the filter.
The pedal ranges from a classic auto-wah to a modern swept filter and works well on guitar, bass guitar, or any other instrument. Users can dial in the filter sound with Sense, Width, and Attack knobs as well as an up/Down Drive switch to control filter travel. The 10 dB clean boost has its own knob and footswitch for kicking it in. Other features include true-bypass switching and the option of 9VDC battery or external supply power.
