Year of the Bull! Smaller and Lighter Effects from Taurus

Osiamo Music Group is proud to announce the arrival of the Taurus MK2 Pedal Series!

The trend in effects pedals is smaller and lighter and Taurus has come through BIG TIME with a brilliant redesign of their popular and successful Silver Line that reduces weight, saves space, autodects 9VDC polarity and doesn’t compromise sound tone and features.

Taurus White Line

Let’s check out the New Line-Up, click on the images to learn more about each pedal:

Abigar Multi Drive MKII

MK-2-ABIGAR

The Taurus Multi Drive provides an unprecedented range of bass drive – from gentle murmur up to extreme mad bull low, mixed with diesel like engine sounds. Sounds too scary for you? Stay cool; its wall-breaking sound won’t destroy your amp ‘cause you’re always in the driver’s seat for the ultimate control. Dynamic Drive – our special feature – keeps even most distorted sound of your bass, full of attack and pulse so very important for the sound of the instrument. The Taurus Drive won’t let the all classic tube lovers down ‘cause of its main characteristic feature of warm tube alike sound.

Taurus Compressor-Limiter MKII

MK-2-TUX

The Taurus Compressor-Limiter controls the dynamics of your instrument. Imagine, that its effectiveness is as powerful as a bull itself. The Taurus Compressor-Limiter allows for modification of dynamics by two main features: limiter or compressor. Taurus has built the compressor based on transparency and on the quality of passive sound optical components. That means there are no side effects to your sound. No hum, noise or any distortion whatsoever.

Zebu Reverb-Delay MKII

MK-2-ZEBU

The Taurus Reverb-Delay has excellent memory. It will store and repeat all you can play – as many times as you need to and for as long as you need. It will echo what you play. It will follow the sound leaving natural reverb, or it will do both. The Taurus Reverb-Delay is a fusion of two stereo effects: delay and reverb. It allows for any given mix between the two effects with or without the original sound of your instrument. This effect features high quality 24 bit DSP processor.

Taurus Octaver MKII

MK-2-DEXTER

The most natural-sounding, best tracking, Octave pedal ever made! Other polyphonic Octave pedals sound cold and synthetic; Dexter delivers multiple-Octave voices, with amazing tracking, while leaving the character of your Guitar/Bass intact! Bass notes can be made to sound dark and menacing, while even the highest notes are “Chipmunk-Free.”

Taurus’ unique DSP algorithm adds a note one Octave above and one Octave below the original signal. Dexter’s Range knobs allow you to control the frequency range of the upper and lower Octaves; you can tailor Dexter to your specific instrument, for optimal results. Individual output controls, for High and Low Octave signals, are also provided. Of course, Dexter is True Bypass.

Using the various controls, Dexter can deliver sounds that include Bass Synths, 8 String Basses, 12 String Guitars and incredibly huge Organ effects. Your imagination is the only limit.

Vechoor Multi Chorus MKII

MK-2-VECHOOR

The Taurus Multi Chorus is a unique conductor that makes even the thickest strings sing. Such a choir – bass guitar and a lyrical monster “singing” so sweetly and powerfully, that you will love to play it. The Taurus Multi Chorus mixes its three voices together creating an unusual polyphonic space that will expand your sonic palette. It will take you by surprise with its smooth, rich and colorful sound.

But that’s not all! The Taurus Multi Chorus is not just a multi-chorus; it also offers a perfect flange effect. Just switch between an “A” and “B” positions, it’s that easy!

Al Dimeola using Taurus Dexter Octaver pedal

NEW YORK, NY – Jun 1 2014 – Osiamo, LLC and Taurus are proud to announce guitar legend Al Di Meola as a user of the Dexter octave pedal by Taurus.

The Dexter is a -1/+1 octaver that tracks equally as well on guitar and bass. Both upper and lower octaves have independent “range” controls which allows the user to emphasize either the up, down or both octaves.

This 12 volt pedal utilizes 24 bit technology. This helps eliminate unwanted glitches and assists the pedal’s polyphonic ability thus making this THE octaver for guitarists who wish to play multi-note chords!

TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS

LEVEL (-1) – LO-octave level adjustment.

RANGE (-1) – LO-octave frequency range adjustment.

In the MAX position the lower octave runs throughout the bandwidth and reacts to the entire scale of sound. In the MIN position the lowest frequency is limited, which means that the lower octave reacts less effectively to the lowest frequency sounds. This way you can eliminate the lowest sound frequency, which is not clear and blurs the sound of an instrument when playing lower registers, leaving only the more desirable harmonics.

LEVEL (+1) – Hi-octave level adjustment.

RANGE (+1) – Hi-octave frequency range adjustment.

In the MAX position the upper octave runs throughout the bandwidth and reacts to the entire scale of sound. In the MIN position the highest frequency of the upper octave is limited – octaver processes the highest frequency sounds. This way you can eliminate very high frequencies, which may sound too high and artificial in some instruments when processed in upper octave.

OUT LEVEL – adjusting the output signal level

Power supply: external power supply 12V/150mA

Dimensions: (H x W x D) 65 x 122 x 144mm

Net weight: 0,6kg

Gross weight (Effect + power supply):1,0kg

We once again shared space with Phil Jones Pure Sound and Xotic Guitars and Effects, we enjoyed the accolades from the consumers.

We debuted both the Dr J pedals line and Dexter the octaver by Taurus. Dr. J pedals offer the famous “Boutique” sound, construction and vibe, at a price any musician can afford. With seven pedals in the line, all designed to be musical tools, you can expand your creativity. The Dexter Octaver is first of a new series from Taurus designed for guitarists as well as bassists. Dexter is a -1/+1 octaver that tracks equally as well on guitar and bass.
