Gear Watch: Aguilar Octamizer

Aguilar OctamizerWe already rule the low end, but why not take it down another notch? The Octamizer, a new bass effects pedal created by Aguilar, designed to create a wide range of musical sounds an octave below your original note and give you a “deep organic tone.” The Octamizer features two discreet signal paths for the clean and octamized sounds, each with it’s own independent volume and tone control for greater flexibility.

As to the actual sounds you get out of this pedal, Aguilar says it best:

“The ‘Clean Tone’ control uses a Full Spectrum Tilt EQ, allowing for the boosting of treble while cutting bass or boosting of bass while cutting treble. This unique circuit allows you to create a clean sound that creates an octave doubling effect or to blend the sounds together for a great thick, snarky synth tone.

“The Octamizer’s ‘Octave Filter’ control is a multipole low-pass Filter that lets you shape the octave sound from smooth and deep to edgy and aggressive.”

If this isn’t enough you can check out these sound samples of the Octamizer in action.

The full feature set includes:

  • Proprietary detector circuit for superior tracking
  • Dual Filter Architecture
  • Full Spectrum Tilt EQ for Clean sound
  • Continuously variable multipole low-pass Filter for Octave sound
  • Gig-saver bypass (signal passes even if your battery dies)
  • Powered by one nine volt battery or optional universal power supply
  • Heavy Duty steel construction

The MSRP listing $219.00, but the current street price is set at $159.00.
