Finegear tells us that, following the pre-order campaign they launched last spring at Superbooth, they are happy to announce that The Dust Collector, described by them as a curated collection of analog effects, is now in stock and shipping worldwide.
The first of the Arkive_Effects series, The Dust Collector brings together five curated analog effects designed for sonic experimentation. It contains 2 VC LFOs, 2 tape saturations, a spring reverb, a delay and a phaser. However, Finegear says that this is not your average multi-effect box, as each module has been analysed and tweaked to support your creative process.
A spokesperson told us, "One of the reasons we've created The Dust Collector was to honour and expand upon the practice of experimentation in electronics. We ended up shaking some of the dust and ash that had settled over the 70's: gritty, springy, phased magic dust that sticks to the tape and transforms sound into a living, kicking and breathing organism - not necessarily pretty, but alive & authentic."
