The Jim Dunlop Jimi Hendrix Octavio Fuzz Guitar Effects Pedal is endowed with the exact same circuit that could be found in Hendrix's original cheese wedge Octavio Fuzz. For those looking to recreate the classic octave up sound so prominently associated with the classic Purple Haze, this is the perfect choice. Not only that, but thanks to the clever crew at Jim Dunlop, it is a surprisingly versatile piece of kit that you're sure to fall in love with.
Classic Octave-Up tones
The Octavio is an analogue design that utilises a transformer for the upper octave tones, and when you really let loose the gain it produces a super-fat wave of fuzz. Whether you're looking for a classic psychedelic washout, a snarling bark, or want to put your own modern twist on a vintage vibe, the Jimi Hendrix Octavio is more than happy to lend a helping hand.
The team at Jim Dunlop have made this a modern-day miracle, packing everything into a pedalboard-friendly enclosure that everyone can appreciate, with a unique design from legendary rock artist Gered Mankowitz. The pedal benefits from a status LED to provide an easy to read visual indicator in the darkest of performance environments. Thanks to the inclusion of true-bypass switching, you can rest assured that when not in use, your dry signal remains unblemished. The 9-Volt power jack allows you to connect to a standard power supply without any fuss. You can also power the unit using a single 9-Volt battery by removing and replacing the base plate, keeping you powered up and playing wherever you are.
If you're looking for a pedalboard-friendly sized pedal that offers the same searing upper octave sweetness as Hendrix's original Octavio, then look no further than the awesome - and affordable - Jim Dunlop Jimi Hendrix Octavio Fuzz Guitar Effects Pedal.
