Cog Effects is pleased the announce the release of the T-16 Analogue Octave, engineered to provide huge octave down tones in a tiny enclosure.
The T-16 is the ideal solution when space is tight but you can't compromise on tone. In addition to level controls for your clean signal and one octave down, a variable Filter control is included to adjust the voice of the octave down signal from buzzy and synthy through to fat and subby tones.
The T-16 is built one at a time and features true bypass switching, engraved aluminium enclosure and no PCB-mounted jacks - designed and engineered for a life on the road. The company founder writes, "I wanted to see if it could be done, a truly fantastic analogue octave down for guitar and bass in the smallest enclosure I could possibly fit it into. I wanted a simple control set but a lot of flexibility, and I'm really proud of the end result!"
* Three knobs to control Clean Level, Octave Down Level, and the Octave Down Filter
