For thousand of years they tower over the green meadows along the coast and the hillside of Rapa Nui. Moai Maea, silent and solemn - venerated and mystified by a long forgotten ancient culture. It will let you feel the droning and shrieking of the mighty erupting Rano Raraku where the Moai Maea was born.
Moai Maea is KMA Audio Machines' answer to long forgotten analog octaver sounds to generate a huge wall of sound by playing just one note. It generates one higher octave and up to two sub-octaves. The higher octave has an edgy and fuzzy character which is reminiscent of old seventies octave-up sounds like Hendrix or The Stooges. The sub-octaves turn your guitar into a filthy bass guitar with ground-shaking lows. We added a sub-octave mode switch for more versatility. Choose between either the first (-I), the second (-II) or both together (-I/-II), which gives you the sought-after wall of sound.
The Moai gives you the possibility to create an individual mix of each generated octave and the original signal. To expand your soundscapes we added a serial buffered FX-Loop at the clean path with a phase inverter to avoid phase cancellation when it comes to signal mixing. Each octave section is foot switchable. You can turn on and off the higher octave by jumping on the SHRIEK switch and the sub-octave by the DRONE switch.Every pedal is designed, assembled, silkscreened, tested and numbered by hand in our small workshop. We use external manufactured PCBs to guarantee our high-quality standard and keep the price of our pedals reasonable. The use of an indestructible powder-coated die-cast enclosure ensures a maximum durability.
