Meet Q. A powerful, musical EQ.
Three bands, centered at musical frequencies in three intervals, with a massive 40db of cut/boost and the increased headroom allowed by 18v operation.
While useful on any instrument due to its wide spectrum, Q is particularly suited for lead, low tuned, and high gain guitar sounds in the following ways:
The lowest band centered at allows true amplification of the low string on a guitar tuned as low as two full steps below standard E tuning.
The 3/2 octave spread between frequencies makes both the “scooped mids” and “maxed mids” common in metal guitar sounds come to life in exaggerated form.
Using Q as a lead boost with the treble rolled off and the bass turned up gives a percussive attack to notes and quiets the ear bleed from heavily distorted leads.
When using the two together, the Oscar preamp should be first in your signal chain, and Q last.
Like all of our products, each Q handmade in Greenwood Lake, New York using only in-house and local labor. The first batch will feature a unique black on black early computer age finish that will not be repeated, and each Q includes a voltage doubling cable so you can use two 9V outputs on your current pedal supply for the required 18V.
