Since the inception of Pigtronix in 2004, our Envelope Phaser pedal has been celebrated by bass players as one of the most expressive, corpulent and downright funky pedals of all time. With the introduction of the Bass Envelope Phaser, Pigtronix has responded to customer feedback by creating a small size, dedicated envelope pedal that is tuned especially for bassists. This no nonsense,
straight ahead design is guaranteed to blow the doors off any other envelope pedal on the planet with its earth shaking low end and unique, vowel like articulation in the mid and high frequency ranges.
Included in this design is the Pigtronix staccato envelope circuit, which auto closes the envelope between notes, for un-matched articulation of high speed finger techniques and slap bass. Running on a stout, 18-volt power supply, the Bass Envelope Phaser has all the headroom you need to deal with active bass pickups and onboard preamps. A simple control layout of SENSITIVITY and RESONANCE knobs gets you to a wide array of perfect sounds within seconds and the UP / DOWN direction switch provides two distinct modes for laying into the various flavors of funk. CHF 239 Building on the breakout success of the Pigtronix FAT Drive, we are proud to introduce the Bass FAT Drive. Fine-tuned for low end muscle and grind, the Bass FAT Drive slams your amp with all analog, tube emulated overdrive that ranges from soft and warm to ripping high gain apocalyptic thunder. Used in front of a DI or solid state amp, the Bass FAT Drive adds a round, organic depth to your bass tone. The Bass Fat Drive leverages Pigtronix CMOS clipping concept to sculpt a larger than life sound that breaks up based on how hard you hit the strings. Turning the tone control all the way clockwise takes our bass specific low pass filter completely out of the circuit for total transparency and robust low end. Rolling the tone control back attenuates only the top end, leaving midrange and bottom end punch intact. A Hi / Lo toggle switch brings additional versatility to the Bass FAT Drive’s wide-ranging palette of overdrive tones, altering the gain structure for deep saturation. The Bass FAT Drive features true bypass switching and runs fine on standard 9-volt power but ships with an 18-volt adapter for superior headroom, clarity and overall output. CHF 169 Pigtronix Philosopher Bass Compressor brings the heralded Philosopher’s Tone compressor circuit to bassists in a small size stompbox format. The sustain control on this pedal varies the compression threshold to provide everything from subtle peak limiting to infinite clean sustain, all with incredible low end response. The Philosopher Bass Compressor also sports a compression blend knob, mixing clean tone in parallel with the optical compression. This approach is far more effective than a typical compressor’s “attack” control for preserving your natural string envelope to achieve transparent and musical results. In addition to the wide range analog compression circuit with unrivaled sustain and parallel blend, the Philosopher Bass Compressor’s GRIT switch brings in a harmonic distortion tuned especially for low frequency domination. Used with a tube or solid state amp or even straight into a mixing board, DI or DAW, the Philosopher Bass Compressor delivers a new level of control and power to bass players at an affordable price. The Philosopher Bass Compressor features true bypass switching and runs fine on standard 9-volt power but ships with an 18-volt adapter for superior headroom, clarity, overall output and use with active basses. Never before has so much bass friendly compression been squeezed into such a small package. CHF 199
