Here’s what the builder has to say about it:
The original DiscumBOBulator was often heralded as the world’s best autowah/envelope filter, and has made appearances at the feet of such luminaries as Pino Palladino, Warren Haynes, Richard Fortus and Ida Funkhouser.
So how do you improve on a pedal that’s already flawlessly funky? Start out by making the filter-triggering even better, and also extend the dynamic range of the pedal. Then triple the input headroom so it can handle the red hot signals of active bass pickups and line level inputs with equal ease. Finally, add an independent 10dB, foot-switchable boost that’ll make funky solos instantly take flight, and you have the new improved DiscumBOBulator v2.
Boasting everything from full-on funk tones & old-school cocked wah sounds all the way thru spacey, synth-like filter sweeps, the DiscumBOBulator v2 is truly the definition of cool!
The goal of the DiscumBOBulator v2 was to create an envelope filter pedal that would be able to handle everything from super-fast single-note lines to denser signals such as complex chords without getting mushy. The pedal’s proprietary all-analog circuit does all this while letting the full spectrum of your preferred instrument through, making it perfectly suited for anything from guitar to bass to keys. Heck, throw flutes or violins at it, or whatever you’ve got on hand – we promise that they’ll all pass with flying, quacky colors and that you won’t experience any of the nasty volume peaks or dips that are common to other filter pedals out there.
