The TB Octave, based on the classic Tycobrahe Octavia ™, delivers a distinctive octave sound as you can hear in Jimi Hendrix “Fire” solo. This recognizable tone of this octave effect pedal is produced by an analog frequency doubler circuit that creates a note an octave above of the one you are playing and mixing it with the original one. Besides, the TB Octave also allows you to add fuzz to the sound! You can set the amount of octave with the Intensity potentiometer, and the Pre knob will allow you to select the amount of signal being feeded to the input of the circuit: adjusting it to the minimum will lead to a subtle clean octave sound, while cranking it all the way up will produce a distorted fuzzy octave tone.
