Trying to figure out this fuzz effect used by Scott Holiday of the Rival Sons (Links below). It is an effect he rehoused himself and painted with a 'Zap-Buzz' graphic. The pedal only has two knobs so i've managed to narrow it down to what I believe is a Dunlop Hendrix Octavio. Any ideas as to what it may be?

Zap Pedal can be seen at 2:05 and used throughout this song.

Could be this?



Thing is, fuzz pedals are so easy to make theres thousands of homebrew one offs all over the place. He might have made it himself. Theres a good chance you'll never find out, unless you ask him personally

EDIT: Upon close inspection its not that one cos the input/output jacks are on the top on his

Based on the looks (knobs, white ring on the footswitch and the fact that the In and Out are on top) I would say a 2-knob bender, an ESV fuzz or a scrambled octave from BYOC. You can buy these as a kit and solder the thing yourself. I would highly recommend it. It's good clean fun and you end up with an amazing sounding boutique pedal at half the cost of a similar vintage pedal or boutique brand pedal.

I agree, you really can't go wrong with one of those kits or projects that are out there.

There was a project (probably still is) on General Guitar Gadgets for a Jumbo Tone Bender. I built a clone and it's one of the best fuzz tones I've come across so far, imo.

I don't believe in signatures. Ah, sh...

It's a rehoused fuzz pedal! Has a bit of an octave kind of thing it does, very subtle though. It's loud and aggressive.

I didn't really watch this video, but I did listen a bit to the video in the op.
The octave is to subtle to be Octavio/Octavia based unless they use Si (or mismatched) diodes instead of Ge.
Lower voltage drop tends to give more aggressive octave effect, and Si diodes tend to have twice the voltage drop of Ge diodes.
Also mismatched diodes make the octave effect more subtle.

Sound is way to gritty for a Foxx Tone Machine, and WAAAAAAY to subtle for an Ampeg scrambler (those things get REALLY aggressive and even glitchy in the octave department).

I'm gonna have to go with NakedInTheRain's pick, along with a Tonebender (The Basic Audio Gnarly Fuzz they mention in the above video).
