“Rare effects pedal from (most likely the mid to late) 70s. It is hard to describe the sound the AG-5 Harmonic Mover makes — kind of a strange — eerie sound. The SDS section makes for a soft distortion. It is very similar to the infamous harmonic pedal that is a sustain/distortion/filter effect which was made famous by Steve Albini. This effect really is in a category of its own and must be heard. It is a true filter with several different settings.”
“This effects pedal is a combined envelope filter with a distortion. The “Harmonic Mover” has a three-position mode selector and a level control for envelope filter effects. The “Soft Distortion Sustainer” has an output volume control only. When both functions are on, this effects pedal produces a very unique and crazy sound — kind of sounds like a “Funny Cat.”
