Anyone use an octavia style pedal such as the Boss OC2, Voodoo Lab Proctavia etc... ? I am thinking of picking one up and could use some advice on what is what. I like the sound that Trioano got on the Blackmarket album, the solo in the song Bring Back. Also dig some of those hendrix BOG sounds.

Hi Paul,

Is it the Octave up sound you want? The Boss OC-2 only does one & two octaves down.

The Prescription Electronics COB pedal I have on ebay right now does the octave up sound. Let me know if you're interested.

The Foxrox does an octave down, plus a fuzzy octave up. It's also very cool.

Another excellent octave pedal is the Fulltone Ultimate Octave. Excellent fuzz with added Octave up. Too bad I just sold mine last week.

If you want a solid and affordable Hendrix-y octave pedal, then the Voodoo Lab might be the best out there. You can use the octave without the fuzz and run another fuzzbox, the bonus is that the fuzz is actually very very good.

The Wolftone is much thicker, think Prince "When Doves Cry" and you have the option of just the fuzz too. The Octavious works best with the tone control on the guitar rolled off and gets all the shades of beck(wired) and Hendrix (BOG) but won't get that sustain for days (unless preceded by a fuzz).

Both units gives those crazy ring modulated bonus notes when bending notes within chords. The demos on-line are quite accurate.

I picked up an OC2 for $40 off ebay and I'll play with it and see what it gives. From all the replies I've started checking them out and there are quite a few of them out there. So far I like what I read about the retro man and the chicago iron. Oh well keep checking them out, meanwhile I'll see what the OC2 has to offer...
