i listened to one, and it sounds cool!

it has the cool super bassy sound to it, but i wonder...

would this actually come in use for me, or would it just be something to mess around with (for metal and classic rock)?

im am in NO way saying im going to buy one, just asking a simple question.

thanks!

It would surely give you a unique sound, along with your strat, wah and muff, you could create a very close Jimi Hendrix sound, and It;s good for metal.

yeah thats what i was thinking, but the muff is already dropped two octaves.

i was thinking this w/ the ds-1 or the MM.

im not even sure of any models of octave pedals, can someone point me in the right direction so i can check em out?
#7
and the big muff, i just want to check out an octavizer that just makes the octave noise.

dont say the whammy.

THE BIG / METAL MUFF is not dropped anything at all, they are just fuzz / distortion pedals they do not alter pitch

Most octave pedals give you one octave higher, like the Octavia and it's clones.
The only one I know of which goes lower is the MXR Blue Box, which is friggin weird...

If the distortion feature is optional, could you not just turn it off, and then you'd have it there if you every wanted it?

Digitech whammy is pretty much your only option.

There are no analog pedals which will give a clean octave up/down.
#17
Have you looked at any Danelectro pedals? They might have an octaver without distortion built in..


Although, I would think distortion built in could be a neat feature just to have for the sake of having, just in case.

I can't tell if you're being sarcastic or if you really believe that???

If it was an octave pedal, GGG would have it in the octave section on their site, and EHX would call it an octave pedal on their site...

Are you looking for a drop down, or up octave?

The octavia is a fantastic up octave pedal. I built the GGG version and I love it. Combine it with a Fuzz and the harmonics sound amazing. Check the GGG site for clips of the octavia.

I have an octaver and i use it quite a bit for pink floyd, and some rhcp. Metallica uses them too but i hardly play metallica. For me anyway it comes into more use than i thought it would have. Makes a nice addition to your sound as well and comes in very handy for originals because not many people use it so its still unique.

Nope the BM is a just a really deep/heavy fuzz.

It's a little bit too 'out there' to be useful, IMO.

It's good when used with moderation.

Listen to 'Fool in the rain' (the solo) to hear what it sounds like.
