Pedal Pawn has launched a brand new octave fuzz pedal that may preserve a “clear and clear” octave impact regardless of the place you end up in your guitar’s fretboard, and but is able to summoning the form of pants-ripping fuzz mojo that you just may affiliate with the works of Jimi Hendrix.

The Octone, says Pedal Pawn, was impressed by a classic Octavia unit that it describes as “the gold commonplace” for octave fuzz results. Having scoured for elements, together with NOS germanium diodes, Pedal Pawn replicated the circuit – full with transformer – and set about boosting it in order that the octaves can be as clear as a whistle.

Souping up a basic results pedal circuit sounds fairly difficult, a sport of cat and mouse with elements, trial and error, however from a participant’s POV, the Octone couldn’t be a lot easier. There are two controls for Stage and Enhance. Flip it up and go. Diming the Enhance yields some helter-skelter tones from the Octone, however backing it off may give you an all-but-clean octave impact. 

Our relationship with the electric guitar is commonly one which’s chaptered by more and more intense gear procurement rituals. It could possibly be a tube amp or a fuzz, a brand new guitar and even only a pedalboard power supply, however you realize the drill – the search is all consuming. 

Properly, it’s all the time reassuring when the gear producers report related experiences.  For Pedal Pawn, that search is often spent designing circuits impressed by the electrical guitar tones of Jimi Hendrix and Stevie Ray Vaughan, giving us gnarly pedals such because the Gypsy Vibe and the Texan Twang, with the Octone very a lot made in related spirit.

The place the Octone differs from the unique Roger Mayer Tychobrae Octavia is in having that further clear remedy of the octave; there’s extra vary in that Enhance management. 

Pedal Pawn guarantees a loud efficiency from the Octone, and it’s the form of factor which may pair properly with a wah pedal, and undoubtedly a Fender Stratocaster.

The Octone is offered now, priced £197 and transport worldwide for a flat charge of £15 (all in that’s round $259). It’s true bypass and takes a 9V DC energy provide. See Pedal Pawn (opens in new tab) for extra particulars.
