    Best fuzz/octave I've found.

    HomeBrew Electronics UFO Ultimate Fuzz OctavePublished on 09/09/11 at 11:53
    Sturdy metal housing with a nice sparkly finish

    Fuzz, Level and active Tone controls

    Vintage/Modern Switch: Vintage Mode-Classic Fuzz, Modern Mode-Aggresive, more output and low end.

    True-Bypass switching.

    1/4" in and out.

    Stomp for pedal on/off, stomp for octave setting on/off

    Handmade in the USA!

    UTILIZATION

    This pedal is easy to set up and use. One stomp controls if the pedal will be engaged or not, and the other controls whether or not the sound will have the octave setting. The Vintage/Modern switch is handy to experiment with different tone settings.

    A side note - this pedal has the best knobs ever - big triangular shaped knobs. I wish more manufacturer…

    A side note - this pedal has the best knobs ever - big triangular shaped knobs. I wish more manufacturers would put some quirky features out there like these knobs to make their products more interesting.

    SOUND QUALITY

    This pedal is amazing! The fuzz tone is huge and warm, and can get quite distorted if necessary. While rolling off the volume on the guitar, the sound gets to be more like an overdrive - very round, with gobs of sustain and note bloom.

    The octave setting is fantastic - like Hendrix, or Queens of the Stone Age, the octave up fuzz is a very dramatic-sounding effect that can be very inspiring! This pedal can nail tones from either of those artists or anything in between.

    Only if one found "the" perfect original Fuzz Face and "the" perfect original Octavia, it could sound better. But it would be much less convenient, and loads more expensive!

    OVERALL OPINION

    This is the best combination fuzz/octave pedal I've ever tried. I think it honestly blows the more expensive Prescription Electronics Experience pedal out of the water. The nice people at HBE make some fun, quirky pedals, and they are all top-quality designs and craftsmanship. Anyone jonesing for some "Purple Haze" should just buy one of these UFO pedals and call it a day. I'd absolutely buy another one of these if I had the chance.

    The HBE UFO Fuzz is a / 2 octaves with a footswitch to activate the octave and one to enable / disable the fuzz.

    A switch vintage / modern switches between an organic germanium fuzz fuzz has a destructive silicone. The volume and reserves are enormous gain on this pedal, which manages the saturation with the volume knob of the guitar;)
    100% analog technology

    Connectivity: DC9V / input / output

    UTILIZATION

    The general configuration could not be simpler two volume knobs and gain .*

    the grain is amazing for the price to be there a pedal that sounds much much better than the current roger mayer!

    switch vintage / modern fuzz allows two very different!

    the octave sounds pretty good! on the other hand is not active if the fuzz is off ...

    SOUND QUALITY

    For the price I had never heard that!

    this pedal sounds in the minds of some fuzz upscale boutiques costing several hundred dollars!

    € 150 for nine you can dig up a

    I do not play on stratocaster, and have not had the opportunity to test the UFO with the humbucker.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I, unwanted for a little less than a year

    what I like most about this pedal is its texture, its headroom and having two different types of fuzz

    I like the least and the fact that the octave can be activated only (no fuzz)

    I tried a lot of fuzz yes: ibanez, boss, ColorSound Tonebender, dallas arbiter fuzz face, fuzz face reissue, electronic prescribing, roger mayer octavia, roger mayer classic fuzz, RM axis fuzz, Fulltone Ultimate Octave, KR fuzz.

    for me a quality / price ratio unbelievable unbeatable view, it's a foot long so cheap only pleasantly surprised me!
    I prefer it to the Roger Mayer Octavia, Fulltone octave to the ultimate!

    I would do with the experience certainly did! only Kr gyspy fuzz managed to dethrone the UFO!
