    This is the newly upgraded V2 version of the much-loved Earthquaker Devices Bit-Commander pedal, which has an upgraded soft-touch relay switching system for silent operation and improved circuitry.

    When you kick in the Bit Commander V2 the crowd will instantly know you mean business. You're not here to make friends, you're here to command and conquer the sonic landscape and drive home the show with one of the most unique sounds ever put in a pedal!

    Like all analogue octave effects, there are some basic rules to follow that will get you the most enjoyment from your Bit Commander V2. Use the neck pickup and play single notes. The best tracking occurs from the 7th fret up on all the strings. Below the 7th will still track but there will be occasional glitches and stutters. The lower the note, the harder it is for the Bit Commander V2 to register. The use of Bass and lower registers on keyboards will yield unexpected, sometimes pleasing, sometimes disgusting results. These are not mistakes or flaws, it is the nature of analogue octaves.

    The Bit Commander V2 has a fully analogue dry signal path and new electronic relay based true-bypass switching. It is powered by a standard 9-volt DC power supply with a 2.1mm negative centre barrel and has a current draw of 25ma. Each Bit Commander V2 is built by hand in the republic of Akron, Ohio, USA.
