OVERVIEW

From aliens in a trash can to celestial bliss.

The MF Ring is an analog ring modulator that is based on the best selling Ring Mod in the world, the Moogerfooger MF-102. Its unique tone voicing circuit adds a new musical dimension to ring modification, making it easy dial in everything from octaves and choral dissonance to harmonic undertones and synthesized lead lines. The expression pedal input provides hands-free control of the Freq control for sound sweeps, pitch shifting effects, and playing between two scales on the fly. Unlike other ring modulation pedals, the MF Ring can also be battery powered.

CONTROLS
FREQ- Tunes the frequency of a carrier oscillator to the root note in a scale. The range of this control has been refined to be extremely musical. At lower settings chorus and octaves occur on notes within a chosen scale, while beating and extreme dissonance occur on notes played outside of that scale. At Mid position the sound is buzzy and tight. This is great when paired with the MD Drive for octave-fuzz sounds. At the maximum position the sound is much more synthesized and robotic.

MIX- Sets the amount of input versus modulated signal. A ring modulator outputs the sum and difference frequencies of your instrument and a carrier oscillator (FREQ). At lower to medium levels, the MF Ring can be used to accompany and accentuate notes. As Mix is increased, you will notice more synthesized and bell-type sounds. At maximum, the input signal is completely gone and only the sum and difference frequencies are heard. This is perfect for creating unpredictable synthesized and electronic sounds.

TONE- A filter circuit only applied to the effected signal. This allows you to leave in the MF Ring’s natural high frequency chime and buzz, or dial it down for a warmer, more musical character. Because the tracking of the MF Ring is so accurate, this control is particularly useful for dialing in sounds that accompany lead lines, bends, and even chords. It is the perfect way to add unique texture to an idea without it overtaking the sound of your instrument.

EXPRESSION PEDAL INPUT- This input is assigned to the Freq control. Use it to specify two independent playing keys or create classic sci-fi swells, bit reduction effects, and whammy dives. This input is additive and will allow you to go past the panel settings.

FEATURES
  • True Bypass
  • Tone control adds musical flexibility to the sonic capabilities of ring modulation

    Used this at gig last weekend with a vintage Moog Source and a BOSS RE-20. Freaky synth heaven. This little guy has a permanent home in my synth / noise rig. Really rich and musical.

      Comments about Moog Minifooger Ring Guitar Modulator Ring Effects Pedal:

      Great ring modulator. The build quality is top notch. Very musical...Moog did a really cool thing with the Minifooger line...plugging an expression pedal in allows you to take the MF Ring beyond the controls on the pedal itself. By it self it's a great pedal but an expression pedal takes it to another level.

        Comments about Moog Minifooger Ring Guitar Modulator Ring Effects Pedal:

        I have (had!) what could be described as a run of the mill analog rig.. Gigson SG standard [P90's] > Tuner > Volume Pedal > Wah > Comp > EQ > Sustainer > Fuzz/Distortion Loop > Chorus > Phaser > Reverb > Delay > Looper > Vox AC15C1. I purchased the Ring Mod on a "stupid deal" as I was always wanting one, and really Moog is one of the big boys in the field. I also bought the expression pedal as I had read that it opens it up more. OH MAN. I have placed it at the end, middle, and beginning of my signal chain and love the variable musical tones I get. The most musical position to insert it in my chain is after the Fuzz/Distortion Loop IMO. My rig without the Ring Mod has a sweet Pink Floyd/The War On Drugs/Mark Knopfler/The National sound... I kick in the Ring Mod and I'm into a great Queens Of The Stone Age/My Bloody Valentine/The Jesus and Mary Chain area. I just use the dials and expression pedal to lock in what I'm looking for and bam. I use it every practice session. The most variable addition to my rig I could ask for.

        • Made In The Usa
        • Solidly built

        Cons

        • Wish It Had A Drive Knob

        • Robotic Tones
        • Weird Noises

        Comments about Moog Minifooger Ring Guitar Modulator Ring Effects Pedal:

        Well, it's an analog Ring Modulator. It's very musical and tuneable but kind of a specialized item (certainly not for everyone). Hand built by Moog in Asheville, NC. Solid build quality and great customer service. The addition of a drive knob would have been nice but not necessary if you have another overdrive or distortion pedal.

          Comments about Moog Minifooger Ring Guitar Modulator Ring Effects Pedal:

          OK, before I ordered this thing, I didn't even know what a ring modulator was, but when I got it (and the Moog Expression Pedal, which is critical!) I spent about 35 minutes straight playing some way out there science fiction theme song type stuff. Oh man, this baby delivers! It does what it does very well, is very well made, and I just love it.
