    Brooklyn, NY --- OCTOBER 28, 2021 --- GENZLER® AMPLIFICATION proudly announces the addition of a second bass effect pedal, the re/Q pedal, born from the “redux collaboration” that brings Jeff Genzler and engineer Andy Field back together again -- developing a new line of bass effect pedals under the GENZLER AMPLIFICATION brand.

    The GENZLER® AMPLIFICATION pedal line will explore a variety of pedal concepts based on Jeff and Andy’s decades of collaboration together, looking back into hundreds of pages of their old design ideas, and to explore interesting circuits that were started but never used, blending them with new innovations. A retrospective of sorts, this is a chance to dig into their collective pasts to develop what they feel players would use and appreciate, going forward.

    And now, the introduction of the companies second model in the line ---- the re/Q -- DUAL FUNCTION EQ PEDAL.

    This pedal is a low noise, ALL ANALOG multi-function HIGH PASS FILTER – LOW PASS FILTER and 5 BAND EQ pedal that gives the player complete tonal control over the cut-off of the extreme low and high frequencies, plus 5 bands of peak-dip equalization. The filter section is foot switched independently from the EQ section, and there is additional make-up gain or cut of 9dB after the EQ for balancing of levels or to act as an additional boost/cut function when the EQ is switched into the signal path. This is essentially 2 pedals in one.

    The re/Q is an important tool for any player’s gear requirements, a “Swiss Army Knife” for tonal needs. As well, it is a great companion to the companies first pedal the 4 ON THE FLOOR Classic Overdrive. It can be used to tailor your instrument’s tone for various overdrive settings, or increased boost levels for any of the overdrive’s 4 gears.

    The re-Q-PEDAL is also an excellent compliment to the companies MAGELLAN 350 and MAGELLAN 800 Bass amps.

    The re/Q-PEDAL will start shipping mid November 2021, and USA MAP is $244.99.

    The re/Q PEDAL ---- Product Demo:



    Genzler Amplification is looking forward (and backwards) to this new journey together and engaging with the player community on exciting new designs, while hoping the community appreciates these bonds of friendship and longevity that have joined up again to create exciting and enduring products. More to come, soon…...

  4. Now if Andy and the GMen would work on a musical, 'idiot-proof' compressor just for bass. 3 guesses who the idiot is . . . . . Thanks, I'm here through Sunday, ba-dump ! !

    Is that pronounced “re-queue” or “wreck”?

    You can't go from your bass to this pedal and direct to DAW (presume amp/cab sims)?

    You can, but a Sansamp BDDI configuration is just so convenient. No shenanigans required.

    OK... so you can use something like the Orange Bass Butler no problem... since that is a preamp.

  9. I wonder what the input impedance is. Looks great for upright

    Input impedance is 1 meg and this is great for upright and downright bass. Check out the demo video on our website with Nate Navarro doubling.
     
  11. Thanks Jeff. That's why I love this forum :)

    Would have preferred a sweepable mid to three separate midrange knobs. But it looks like a really nice EQ.

    A line level out would have been a major plus as well so it could directly drive any effects loop. But you can't have everything I suppose. :)

    Could also be "reek", but that probably wan't their intent.

  17. Nice, but it's a pity that the pedal doesn't have a DI out. If I leave my amp and my speaker at home because I only want to play directly into the desk with a small setup, this is unfortunately not possible if I see it correctly.

    You can run it to a bass preamp, such as the Orange Bass Butler. I realize that's an added cost.

    I am looking very closely at this preamp. I don't know if I can get past the lack of a DI. I suppose one could just add a DI box after it. We'll see.

    This looks very useful.

    So it’s designed to go straight into an amp input correct?

    Does it have enough output to drive a powered speaker (QSC etc) or the 1/4” in on a mixing board?
