Big Briar Moogerfooger analog effects modules long before he was designing alien stomp boxes for Big Briar, Bob Moog was forever changing the way we make music with a little invention called the synthesizer. With his Moogfooger modules, ol’ Bob has extracted some of the more guitar-friendly features from his creations and packaged them in sturdy oak-and-metal enclosures suitable for stomping desktop tweaking.
Most guitarists will peg the Moogerfooger Lowepass Filter as an “auto wah,” but plug in an expression pedal and it can morph into a conventional wah. Equally versatile is the 12-stage Phaser, which does ever flavor of phasing imaginable and goes a few steps beyond with a sweep frequency that ranges from a barely perceptible one cycle per 100 seconds to a brain-spinning 250 cycles per second.
We spent a day with a Moogerfooger Ring Modulator and still didn’t exhaust its stock sounds. Capable of woofer-blowing lows and crystal-shattering highs, the Ring Modulator adds a clangorous atonality that’s truly out of this world. With is extended frequency range, the ring modulator also functions as a versatile tremolo circuit capable of all kinds of shimmery volume warps. Moogfooging incredible.
