AFTER YEARS OF DEVELOPMENT,THE GIZMOTRON® 2.0 IS FINALLY HERE
The Gizmotron® 2.0 is a patent-pending electro-mechanical bowing device that attaches to electric guitar or bass, enabling players to produce string sounds such as cello, viola or violin. With the Gizmotron® 2.0, you can create endless sustain, haunting drones or bow polyphonic chord arrangements. It is an effect that entices orchestral sounds from your instrument and unveils a new dimension of sonic enjoyment for players and listeners alike.
Originally invented in the mid-1970's by Lol Creme and Kevin Godley of 10cc, the Gizmotron® was poised to revolutionize the guitar world with its promise of infinite sustain and the ability to create "authentic sounds of such stringed instruments as violins, violas and cellos".
In 2013, Aaron assembled a small team of engineers to restore, reverse engineer, and ultimately design a new and improved version of the Gizmotron using modern materials and manufacturing methods.
Using original patent drawings and the units in Aaron's collection as a reference, the engineering team solved long-standing design problems with the original Gizmotron. Several Patent-Pending innovations were made to the device to improve its sound, functionality and reliability. The end result is the Gizmotron® 2.0, a device which challenges guitar and bass players everywhere to re-imagine and re-define their place in the stringed instrument world.
The Gizmotron® 2.0 (Patent Pending) delivers on the promises of long ago, offering guitar and bass players endless sustain, organic violin and cello sounds, and the ability to bow polyphonic chord arrangements. Being an entirely mechanical device, the Gizmotron® 2.0 offers nuanced touch-sensitive playing, where by applying pressure its rotating wheels, the player can control the timbre, attack and sustain of each note or chord.
