The Pigtronix Octava Analog Octave Fuzz Pedal is an all-analog octave fuzz and frequency doubler featuring an on-board low pass filter control that allows you to achieve singing octave up tones anywhere on the neck, without adjusting your guitar’s tone control. A front-end Drive and gushing Fuzz circuit add signal power and easily convert Octava to a shoegazey fuzz pedal capable of producing devastating, full-wave rectified distortion. Use the Blend knob to mix the octave-up effect on top of your dialed-in drive.
The volume knob sets the overall output volume. The blend knob mixes in the octave-up effect. The filter knob is a low-pass filter tone knob that sets the cut-off frequency of the low-pass filter on the input of the Octave circuit. The drive knob mixes in warm front-end overdrive by increasing the gain of the J-FET preamp stage. The fuzz knob activates the fuzz circuit.
All Analog, Still Versatile
Built with the theory of ‘do one thing and do it well' paired with the flexibility of more diverse effects units, the Octava transitions seamlessly between a singing octave-up to an overflowing fuzz, and every blended tone between.
The Octava Ribbons
Parallel ribbons made up of complex pattern work wave ever-so-slightly in the blackness of space. It is from this mysterious place that Octava was harvested. Pretty much sounded like a badass octave fuzz.
