(Open Box) Expression-enhanced ring modulator with musical tone-voicing circuit, optional battery power, and expression pedal control of Freq.
Part of Moog's Moogerfooger Series, 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.
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' 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.

Comments about Moog Minifooger Ring Guitar Effects Pedal:
For whatever reason I've always wanted a ring modulator, but there was a limited selection and most of them were a bit pricey. I've also always wanted a product by moog ever since high school.
When this pedal went on sale I immediately bought it.
It adds the necessary weirdness every guitar player should have on their pedal board. The mix knob really helps you choose between a subtle little somethin' somethin' to all out cyborg space sounds. I mean, no I'm never going to play a whole song with this pedal on. But it is incredibly fun and you can get some awesome useable sounds from it. I plan on getting an expression pedal for it. Totally excellent product!
