I have designed yet another pedal for the new year. It is an octave fuzz.
This pedal is probably one of fattest Octave pedal on the planet. I always have been frustrated with the Octave Up pedals since they all sound so thin and the octave down pedals always get lost once the bass player starts.This pedal is unusual in more then one way.
For one thing, you can control the amount of signal going in with a pot and when reduced, the pot also acts as a tone control as well. The other pot on the pedal is simply a volume so you can control the signal going in as well as going out. As like most of my pedals, I have added a 3 position frequency selector which adds flexibility to the pedal. And if that wasn't enough you will find a smaller knob that when turned one way will turn the pedal into a straight and smooth Fuzz pedal, and if turned in the opposite direction will only add 50% of the octave with any increment in between. This is a totally Germanium pedal which is extremely stable. One must listen to the individual Soundclips as well as the Octo '59 Rock song to realize just how much this pedal can do. Oh and I forgot to mention that the Blend / Fuzz is controlled by its individual foot switch. This pedal has been in planning for a long time and has received extended testing. I am totally stoked with this pedal and hope you will be as well...
