The Asheville Music Tools AnalogerTM Series AFG-1 Flanger is a whooshless resonant comb modulator. This pedal features a reissue Bucket Brigade Delay line to deliver classic Flanger and Chorus sounds with the most natural modulation possible. The synthesizer-inspired control voltage topology provides an extended range of functionality and precision not available in most flangers. The AFG-1 draws upon renowned analog designer Hawker’s decades of experience creating modulation and delay-based effects. We hope you enjoy many years of use from your AFG-1 and find it as inspiring and fun as we have.
The AFG-1 is a 100% analog effect, built with over 380 high-quality components to combine vintage audio processing techniques with advanced, high-tech, electronics. At its core is a high headroom, 256 stage, MN3009 Bucket Brigade Device. True sine-wave exponential modulation and a selectable response dynamic envelope detector modulate its VCO based delay clock. It contains tightly tuned, discrete, high-order filters and a compandor with emphasis/de-emphasis to keep the noise floor low while imparting an animated feel.
The VCA-based feedback control offers warm regeneration tone and a controlled method of dialing in deeply notched comb filter effects. A JFET input stage and input preamplifier optimizes the signal-to-noise ratio and allows for tone shaping and harmonics enhancing overload at higher settings.
The whole ensemble is powered by a protected and highly regulated 15V power supply for carefree operation in any stage or studio environment.
