DSM Noisemaker Unveils the Sub Atomic X-over CMOS Bass Drive Pedal
Chilean boutique pedal company DSM Noisemaker has expanded their line of bass effects with the Sub Atomic X-over CMOS Bass Drive. The unit processes the high and low frequencies differently by utilizing a cascaded CMOS architecture. This allows for “dynamic and aggressive distortion on the mid-highs, and a clean, tight and warm low end,” the company says.
The high side has a drive control and a Drive Voice switch that has three settings: High Boost, Mid Boost, or flat response. Similarly, the low end is affected by a Sub LPF switch with 100Hz, 1kHz, or no cut options. “Just try the Sub LPF at 100Hz, Drive Voice at Treble boost, and get a scooped monster tone, or just the Sub side cutting 1kHz for a Motown vibe warmer than the sun thanks to the tubey vibe from the CMOS inverters,” DSM suggests.
Finally, a blend knob lets you balance between distorted highs and lows while the tone knob offers general shaping. Hear the pedal in this demo by bassist Luis Caro:
The DSM Noisemaker Sub Atomic is available for pre-order and will be shipping in August. It has a special pre-order price of $135 and will have a regular price of $169.
