Boss OC-3

Super Octave Stomp Box

This interesting effect has been known ever since Jimi Hendrix, and also the solo from Paranoid//Black Sabbath owes its unique sound to this stomp box. The Boss Octaver OC-3 adds a tone to the original sound that is one 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 (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: Even chords can be played at lower octaves. Of course you can do that with a pitch shifter, but rarely without audible delay - in this respect, the BOSS Octaver is much tighter and is also much cheaper.

Interesting device for giving your solos a very special touch.

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.

Love this pedal

Slimholio, 19.02.2018
This pedal does exactly what it says it does. It makes my acoustic or electric sound like a bass. It has added so much to my sound.
