THE “SWISS ARMY KNIFE” FOR TONE!
GENZLER® AMPLIFICATION proudly announces the addition of a second pedal 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 their 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 second model in the line —- the Re/Q — DUAL FUNCTION EQUALIZATION pedal, which offers 2 specific and separate filter networks, HPF and LPF filters with on/off switching and a 5 band EQ network, with its own on/off switching. And the EQ network provides an EQ Output level of +/- 9dB. This versatile design allows the pedal to be used as a clean boost, and is a great combination with the 4 ON THE FLOOR, CLASSIC BASS OVERDRIVE pedal. This pedal also offers another level of versatility as it accepts nearly any power supply; 9 – 18 Volts, either polarity. (Power supply not included).
Matt J –
The re/Q has exceptionally well thought out frequencies, they work wonderful for bass and guitar both. The proportional Q and Q/frequency relationship really works well, it’s almost impossible to find a ‘bad sound’ from re/Q. In some cases I only use the HPF/LPF filters and then tease out just a tad of EQ, or forgo the EQ altogether when just filtering will do the job. The filters alone are quite useful. As well, I have been running reamped vocal tracks through a tube drive recently, and the re/Q makes a potent front end to shape the frequencies that are then saturated.
