NOBLEBORO, MAINE – With the launch of the new NXTa Active series, Ned Steinberger and NS Design herald the introduction of battery-free, high performance active electronics for the full family of NXT instruments. These include the violin, viola, cello, Omni bass and double bass. The new capacitor-powered custom circuitry, designed for NS Design by Mi-Si Electronics Design, integrates with the NS Polar Pickup System to provide two distinct signal output modes, bringing the convenience, versatility and performance capability of the NXT to another level.
Operationally, for Active mode, the user plugs the supplied charger into an AC outlet for 60 seconds to power the circuit for up to 16 hours of performance time. The instrument can then plug straight into any amp, low or high impedance, no direct box necessary. Since there is no signal loss over the full frequency spectrum of the instrument, the fundamentals of every note remain clear and strong, even with extra-long cables.
In 2015, Cog Effects built the smallest analogue octave pedal in the world, the T-16. The UK company have now expanded their current line-up to include a total of four octave pedals, with the brand new T-47 and T-70, and the upgraded and updated T-65 joining the range.
The new T-47 is a two-channel octave pedal, with level controls for clean signal and one octave down, as well as an adjustable Filter control on each channel to shape the tone of the octave down signal. With one footswitch to engage and bypass the pedal and a second footswitch to swap between the two octave channels, the T-47 provides incredible versatility and tone.
The new and improved T-65 retains the control set of the original, with level controls for clean signal, octave down, octave up, and the parallel effects loop, plus the adjustable Filter control on the octave down. The parallel effects loop allows you to mix in any effects with your octave and clean signals to create new sounds and textures, like a...
