Description
 
Analog Man carries the ZVex Octane 3. The most pronounced OCTAVIA fuzz/octave effect made. Unlike most octave pedals this one can be used for some chords too. This pedal can also get some ear-splitting shrieks if you dial them in, and has somewhat of a ring modulation sound.
Features
The most pronounced OCTAVIA fuzz/octave effect made. Unlike most octave pedals this one can be used for some chords too. This pedal can also get some ear-splitting shrieks if you dial them in, and has somewhat of a ring modulation sound.

There are 3 knobs of control :

IN : Input (drive) level. Use enough for the amount of drive you want, without adding more noise than desired.

OUT : Output level.

TONE : Turn up for mid scoop tone, down for more mids.

Due to popular demand the OCTANE-3 has come back! Has a real printed circuit board, LED, and still that great wacky octave fuzz sound.

From Zachary Vex:

I give to you the re-release of the Octane (tm), my very first pedal creation from 6 years ago, with LED on/off indicator, true-bypass, and the same cruel audio circuit and sound as the original madcap pedal. It's now called the Octane 3, because I burned out the Octane 2 name on a quick re-release immediately after I stopped making the original Octane about 4 years ago. Don't ask.

This pedal is an octave-up generator with massive fuzz and mid-cut filter (turn the tone knob to the right to see what I mean.) They say that the Octane 3 makes a guitar player seem sexier. I don't know who this "they" is, but they're right, as usual.

Setting suggestions would go something like this:

Turn up theinputquite a bit, but turn it down a smidge if it helps during the silent parts of your playing.

Turn the tonecontrol all the way to the right to start, and back it off to help cut through the band if necessary.

Turn theoutputlevel to suit.

The new LEDon/off indicator hardly draws any power at all, thanks to advances in LED technology.

Enjoy! Zachary Vex
