« Octivation! »

Publié le 07/29/11 à 16:56
Boss has the pedal for you. If you are looking to beef up your tone and get yourself gig ready then look no further than to the Boss Roland company to help you out in all of your guitar pedal playing needs.

This is the Octave pedal that produces and effects that give you two separate octaves within the effect. This is an easy pedal to use. You have three control knobs and they work pretty well. The two octaves are on the outer sides. The middle control knob sets the overall level or volume of the effect pedal.

SOUND QUALITY

I find that this kind of effect works best with bass guitars than it does with a guitar rig. It certainly does sound good in the right setting with a guitar amp but the bass seems to be more apt to taking the overall effect much better in a more usable way. I like the sound of this pedal. I have always liked the cool octave sound anyway so having two separate octaves is a plus. You can dial them in to have one below and above or just having a somewhat detuned guitar tone. This is a pedal or an effect that you would use sparingly. You won't use this pedal a lot in your overall sound. It is good for solos or somewhere that a break in the music occurs. If you want to hear what an octave sounds like listen to the song "My Iron Lung" by Radiohead and the opening sound is an octave pedal, which I believe is a Digitech octave pedal but essentially the same type of sound that this pedal would create.

OVERALL OPINION

These pedals have been long discontinued not since 2003. They have a newer one that can be used for bass and guitar. That ones has much more user friendly controls and parameters. This pedal is great as well and if you can get it for under $50 the I would recommend picking this pedal up. It is a fun pedal for getting some very cool effects for your rig.
