Super Octave Stomp BoxThis interesting effect is known ever since Jimi Hendrix, and also the solo by Paranoid/ Black Sabbath most likely owes their unique sound to this effect. The boss Octavers OC-3 adds a tone to the original signal, which is an octave lower. New to the first mode is a distortion effect, with which one can make the sound even more aggressive; always a good choice, if you don't want to play the typical Wes Montgomery octaves. In addition in the second (OC-2) mode, a second tone, another octave lower, can be mixed to the signal (even though, in this case, you should be really playing very high notes - the speaker will thank you for that).

A third mode also allows polyphonic octaves - in short: Also chords can be provided with lower octaves. Of course you could also use a pitch shifter, but rarely without audible delay. The BOSS Octaver is much tighter and also much cheaper.

Interesting device, which allows you to add a very special touch, especially to solos.

  • For bass and electric guitar with 3 different modes to choose from
  • Drive mode with distortion for a more massive sound
  • OC-2 mode 1 to 2 octaves
  • The polyphonic mode can also transpose chords
  • Special input for guitar and bass
  • Knobs for direct level, octave level, range, mode
  • Output jacks: Direct and mono
  • Power supply with a 9 V battery or a 9 V DC power supply (coaxial connection - negative inside - not included, Art. 108096)
  • Dimensions (W x D x H): 73 x 129 x 59 mm

Not the best out there

27.02.2015
I find this pedal to be useful in achieving a good deep sound...but only on the A-G strings for my 4-string Sterling. On the E string, the pedal has trouble tracking the notes and gives a warbley flickering effect - this is disappointing. The controls do little to rectify this. But if you mostly play a little higher it should be no problem for you.

Octave Pedal for my violin

Wolfgang172, 24.10.2014
I use the pedal to get different sounds from my electric violin, a bit cello sound and if I do pizzicato it sounds almost like a double bass. Brilliant sound, no clipping and jumping in octaves like the first pedal I had.
