The EarthQuaker Devices Organizer V2 is about to be your new favourite pedal as this dual octave organ emulator can completely transform your guitar in to a new instrument or to a point in-between.
The Organizer V2 has been updated to include soft-touch switching for silent and effortless on-stage operation. With a more durable switch than before, the V2 model will take some serious abuse on stage. Plus the top-mounted I/O means this pedal won’t take up too much space on your pedal board either.
The Organizer V2 now features improved circuits for better performance and a much lower noise-floor. So your Organ Emulator will be hum free and thanks to true bypass won’t colour your sound when you switch it off.
Two OctavesAn organ gets its sound through playing multiple octaves of the same note at once with certain harmonic notes in-between. So the first two controls on this pedal are the octave up and octave down controls which set the volume of the two octaves available above and below the guitar signal. You can then enhance these to make it much thicker sounding by using the choir control to bring in extra regenerated octaves with a slight delay.
Bring In Your Guitars Signal
While the pedal does sound amazing just producing the organ sound you can also use the direct knob to bring in your guitars dry signal. This adds a beautiful extra layer to the guitar and sounds like you have both an organ player and guitarist playing the same things at once for a mix filling tone.
