I'm still trying to find one I really like. I tried some Devi Ever pedals, checked out some Dwarfcraft/Fuzzhugger and while they sound pretty good and have a load of personality I found it very hard to use them musically.

I deally I'd like an octave fuzz that can get into sonic mayhem but also be rolled back and subdued. I'd like to look at what my options are. I like the over the top fuzz in some Pumpkins records, and I also like some traditional Jimi style octave fuzz. I want to hear something new and awesome though.

Can't seem to find any online anywhere! how much are they?

What would be ideal for me is something like an FZ-2 but with an octaving function.

All the octave fuzzes I have tried have failed in comparison to simply using a pitch shifter and a modeling fuzz like TS secret.

However, you could replicate this using a pitchshifting pedal and a standard silicon fuzz.

Octave Fuzz isn't the same effect as pitch shifting. It's kind of a weird kazzoo effect and sounds weird on chords.

I'm kind of divided now. I'm not sure whether I want a vintage octave fuzz or a modern gnarly scrambled one. I'm thinking probably modern at this stage.

I just want a Fuzz that makes my guitar sound weird. Scrambling sounds like a totally new kind of distortion in some ways if it's done right.

Jimi Style fuzz? Chicago Iron Octavian. No doubt.

Another one to look at would be a Fulltone Ultimate Octave, which is a Foxx Tone Machine in disguise.

If you want weird scrambled ones....MXR Blue Box, Ampeg Scrambler, or a Catalinbread Heliotrope.

The last one is ridiculous beyond words. I don't even know what it does.


EDIT: BTW, please try not to multi-post so much. Edit your posts.

Which Devi Evers did you try, just out of curiosity? And how much are you willing to spend?

Buy an octaver like a whammy then get a big muff. If you want pumpkins fuzz you want a muff.

Pretty much all the octaving ones. The Soda Meiser was the best, but it sucks in when you play harder which makes it very disorientating to use. I don't particularly want a Devi at the moment anyway.

I'm looking for the scrambling effect more than the octaving, and I already have a Muff. I'm talking about the crazy over the top octave fuzz used on some of the tracks(I think it was a Fender Blender).

Some kind of Fender Blender clone would work well for me.

or you could get a catalinbread ottava magus and go crazy with the output.


Hmm maybe.

I think I definitely want something with more of a scrambling effect than octaving. Just something to really tear up my signal....

If you've ever heard an Octavia, it's really not a straight up octave up.


I guess I'm looking for an octavia rather than octave up.
