Last week we showed you the leaked advertisement of a new line of Minifoogers, so we kinda knew they were coming soon. And today Moog acknowledged the rumours by introducing … the new Minifoogers. A series of compact – easy to use stomp boxes designed primarily for use with electric guitar and bass. Each Minifooger is housed in a rugged cast aluminum enclosure and features a 100% analog signal path, true bypass design, optional battery power, and a single expression pedal input providing hands-free control of one specified parameter within each unit.
“We have been working on designs for a line of highly engineered analog effects pedals that are affordable, compact, and easy to use for some time. We are extremely pleased with the outcome and hope that guitar and bass players are too,” said Mike Adams, President of Moog Music.
Each Minifooger’s user interface is centered on musicality and the ability to create new effects quickly. There is also a dedicated expression pedal input that provides control over a function and allows the player to go beyond the panel settings to explore wild, and experimental sounds. This input can also be controlled via CV.
“We want people to approach these pedals from an aural standpoint. The sonic capabilities of Minifoogers are extensive, but they are also easy to use. You can just close your eyes, turn knobs, and create modern, vintage, or other worldly sounds,” said Cyril Lance, Chief Engineer Moog Music.
The Minifooger family of analog effects places legendary Moog quality, tone and versatility into a compact, rugged housing designed to withstand the tortures of touring and daily abuse. Each Minifooger is unique, powerful, transformative and extremely responsive to each player’s unique style. They are true bypass, 100% analog, expression input equipped, battery power-able, and have no negative impact on the tone of your instrument. Each Minifooger is assembled by hand at the Moog factory in downtown Ashville, NC in a rugged, cast aluminum enclosure and features a 100% analog signal path, true bypass design, optional battery power, and a single expression pedal input that provides hands-free control of one specified parameter for under $200 a piece.
Moog is launching The Minifooger Analog Effects family with 5 compact stomp boxes – the MF Drive, MF Boost, MF Delay, MF Ring, and MF Trem. Each pedal is 100% analog, designed and hand assembled in Moog’s factory in Asheville, North Carolina and carries a US street price below $200.
