Very rare UK pedal that generates bass notes from the lowest note of any chords you play. Made in Wales by John Rodgers tarting to gain a bit of a cult status.
Similar in principle to the Boss OC series, but with more character! The bassmaker acts as an intelligent octaver. A filtering process allows the octaver section to kick in on the lowest notes. However, how it does this I'm not so sure.
There is an op-amp on the board, but I believe the easiest way to filter the bass-end is to couple a resistor and potentiometer (not unlike the tone control in an electric guitar). As standard analog octavers process monophonically e.
Such as the Boss OC-2/OC-3, the filtered signal cuts out some of the frequencies that confuse the pedal when playing polyphonically. The bassmaker does get confused but it is just hidden better; this adds to my hunch that the filtering process is achieved via the potentiometer itself (the other pot serves as gain of the octave section only) and not via the circuitry. Pedal is used but in good condition, and works perfectly.
