For those of you from Canada, or who know anything about Canada outside of beavers, and maple syrup…. the capitol of the country is called Ottawa, and is full of politicians who do nothing but wah-wah-wah all day long (see where we are going with this?) It’s difficult to say whether there is another connection between this pedal and the Canadian capitol, but we have redesigned the Optical Envelope Filter, and have given it a new, tongue-in-cheek name…. The Carl Martin Ottawa!

The Carl Martin Ottawa is an envelope filter that mimics the sound of your wah pedal without you having to step on a wah pedal and adjust those frequencies manually.  Really a great pedal for solo-ing and for rhythm work, whether you are into ‘those’ psychedelic 60’s, or the disco era of the later 70’s, or any other music that requires this unique sound.  There are 3 presets which are High, Band and Low Pass filters, adjustments for bandwidth and attack as well as level and tone.  Let’s look at these controls….

Sporting the potent combination of PlexiTone and modified silicon Treble Booster, the PlexiRanger can deliver a boatload of great tones. The Boost side alone may be enough for many when you consider it's a clean OR Treble Boost with two stages of low-cut filtering on hand. But when you couple it with Carl Martin's time-proven PlexiTone distortion/overdrive, you've got a winning combo that begs you to get out on stage and rock. I was always a big fan of the original PlexiTone and I love a good Treble Booster, so the teaming of the two was obvious from my point of view. If you're a fan of classic rock tones I think you'll love the PlexiRanger.
