Cog Effects have released three new analogue octave pedals.
Not content with building the smallest analogue octave pedal in the world, Cog Effects have expanded their current line-up to include four octave pedals with the brand new T-47 and T-70, and the upgraded and updated T-65.
The T-47 features two independent octave channels, each with level controls for clean signal and one octave down, as well as an adjustable Filter control on each channel to shape the tone of the octave down signal. With one footswitch to engage and bypass the pedal and a second footswitch to swap between the two octave channels, the T-47 provides incredible versatility and tone.
The new and improved T-65 retains the control set of the original, with level controls for clean signal, octave down, octave up, and the parallel effects loop, plus the adjustable Filter control on the octave down. The parallel effects loop allows you to mix in any effects with your octave and clean signals to create new sounds and textures.
The improvements to the T-65 are based purely around better integration into a pedalboard. The TRS send/return jack of the original has been replaced with individual send and return jacks to allow the use of standard patch cables, and the addition of the Mode footswitch allows you to select your sound when the T-65 is bypassed as either your clean signal or your effects loop signal, meaning any pedal in the T-65 effects loop is still fully accessible even when the T-65 is bypassed.
The brand new T-70 is the new big dog of analogue octave pedals. Featuring two complete and independent T-65 channels and a third sub-only channel, the T-70 allows not only a broad range of octave tones but is also an extremely flexible pedal in an enclosure only two inches wider than a T-65. The Bypass Mode toggle switch allows you to select your bypass sound as either clean signal or your effects loop, giving full access to the pedals in the effects loop even when the T-70 is bypassed.
Cog Effects’ Tom George explains, “I received a lot of custom shop orders for variations on my existing octave pedals, so I wanted to create a new range of analogue octavers to cover the many wants and needs of the vast population of bassists using octave effects. There should be something for everybody now!”
Each T-47, T-65 and T-70 is built one at a time in Sheffield, UK, and features north-mounted jacks to minimise pedalboard footprint. The pedals retail at £160 for the T-47, £170 for the T-65, and £220 for the T-70
