Name the (octave) effect: Dear Mr. Fantasy - Grateful Dead

I would like to know what the octave sounding pedal/effect is on the Grateful Dead's cover of Dear Mr. Fantasy. I believe this is from the album Without a Net.

I assume that it is a POG, maybe a Fender Blender but we all know what happens when you assume. I just love the sound of that effect and want to try/maybe buy it.

What specific part are you talking about? In this version, I don't hear anything besides maybe a keyboard or another guitar doubling a guitar part an octave higher.

Yes that version, maybe I am mistaken but in the background very lightly you can here a strange distorted octave, it seems to match exactly with the guitar and I think it is coming from his guitar, but I don't really know. It kind of sounds similar to the microsynth pedal.

It might be a doubled guitar, because you can here it do a slide but I don't think its keys. Either way that background sound is sweet, if it is just a fuzz I would like to know what it is too.

Definitely going to check out the mutron though.

Sounds like some overdrive with chorus to me

Www.dozin.com has a lot of info on Jerry and Bobby's rig. I couldn't remember that site name in my other post.

If you want a cheaper alternative, albeit with less control on the octaves, check out the MXR blue box. Jimmy page uses one on Fool in the Rain.

Although I'm still pretty sure it's a synth of some kind, a sub-octave fuzz will get you pretty close that sound with a guitar.

I have a blue box, I love it but that sounds a little cleaner, I think the closest I could come to it would be a Mothership or Microsynth as the consensus appears to be that it is a synth.
