For thousand of years they tower over the green meadows along the coast and the hillside of Rapa Nui. Moai Maea, silent and solemn - venerated and mystified by a long forgotten ancient culture. It will let you feel the droning and shrieking of the mighty erupting Rano Raraku where the Moai Maea was born.

Moai Maea is KMA Audio Machines’ answer to long forgotten analog octaver tones. The pedal generates one higher octave and up to two sub-octaves, helping you generate a huge wall of sound by playing just one note. The higher octave has an edgy and fuzzy character which is reminiscent of old late ‘60s early ‘70s octave-up tones, as used by legends like Hendrix or The Stooges. The sub-octaves turn your guitar into a filthy bass guitar with ground shaking lows. Choose between either the first (-I), the second (-II) or both together (-I/-II), which gives you the sought-after wall of sound.

The Moai Maea also gives you the possibility to create an individual mix of each generated octave and the original signal. To expand your soundscapes, the pedal features a serial buffered FX-Loop, within the clean path, plus a phase inverter to avoid phase-cancelation when mixing signals this way. Each octave section is foot-switchable. You can turn on and off the higher octave by jumping on the SHRIEK switch and the sub-octave by the DRONE switch. So if you are looking for a pedal to you that extra edge for your guitar sound, Moai Maea might well be the nirvana you’ve been looking for.

Powered by an optional standard 9V-18V DC PSU (negative center, 2.1mm, approx. 20mA current draw)

Important Information:
The Moai Maea is an analog octaver and works monophonic only, not polyphonic! That means for a clean and perfect tracking, you have to play single notes because of the analog circuit design. Keep in mind that chords will sound glitchy, but charming anyway.

Due to the fact that the Moai Maea is an analog octaver the tracking is limited along the fretboard. To improve the tracking use a compressor/booster/drive pedal in front of the Moai Maea

Audiojack Order:
Because of some requests the jack order from right to left is:
INPUT, FX-Loop SEND, FX-Loop RETURN and OUTPUT

Every pedal is designed, assembled, silkscreened, tested and numbered by hand in our small workshop. We use external manufactured PCBs to guarantee our high quality standard and keep the price of our pedals reasonable. The use of an indestructible powdercoated die-cast enclosure ensures a maximum durability. We trust in our environment and want to keep it clean, that's why none of our pedals have the possibilities to be powered by batteries.
