The Boss PS-6 Harmonist is a very simple, but highly effective octave pedal. The pedal has a pretty standard make up in terms of it's general characteristics, consisting of 1/4" connections for your input and output, and requiring power from a nine volt battery or power supply. The pedal has true bypass, so you won't get any signal loss when the pedal is disengaged. The PS-6 Harmonist isn't rackable as it's a stomp box.


The make up of the PS-6 Harmonist really couldn't be any simpler. The three parameters that the pedal has are for controlling the direct level, octave up level, and octave down level. You can blend the three of these any which way you like, which can give you a variety of results. I've never seen the manual for PS-6 Harmonist , nor do I think I ever will.


The overall sound of the PS-6 Harmonist makes it one of the cleanest sounding octave pedals that I've used to date. Most of this has to do with the tracking, as it's got awesome tracking that doesn't break up unless you try to play too many notes at once. I like both the octave down and octave up sounds equally, but I do think that the tracking is slightly better on the octave down. It's great that you can also blend the two of them, with or without the original signal in there.


If you're looking for an awesome octave pedal for guitar, the PS-6 Harmonist is probably the pedal I'd recommend you check out first. There is a newer version of the Octron, the Octron 2, which is a bit more in depth, but I like this simpler one just fine. It's not going to be the cheapest pedal on the market, but I do think it's reasonably priced considering the high quality the pedal is made at. This is one of my favorite octave pedals that is currently available new for sure...
