Description Technical Specs
Analog Man carries the Foxrox Octron-2. Definitely one of those effects that will get everyone's attention at any gig. Seperate switch for each of the three octaves. Great tracking and very versatile too.
Differences from Octons and digital "organ type" octave pedals.

Foxroxelectronics Octron-2 pedal

Octron2 is the limited-production version of the Foxrox Octron pedal. Since it's debut in April of 2005, the original Octron pedal has been hailed as a super-organic sounding, high quality analog Octave pedal. It's the only current-production boutique Octave pedal to offer both one octave Up and one octave Down.

In May of 2005 Frank Marino (Mahogany Rush) became one of the first Octron users, and he offered some great feedback on what he'd love to see in an Octave pedal. Dave Fox took his suggestions and used them to make improvements in the original Octron, along with the suggestions of others and came up with something cool, new and unique - Octron 2.

What makes Octron2 different from the original Octron?

Octron2 is identical to the original Octron, with the addition of the following features-

- Individual foot switch to activate each of the three signals, Octave Up, Direct, and Octave Down.
- Individual LED for each of the three foot switches
- Master true-bypass foot switch w/LED mounted on upper level.
- Effects loop located after the effect, but before the foot switch.

How do you use Octron2?

There are a couple of different ways to use Octron2.

- While bypassed, choose the mix you want. You can activate any combination of the three signals (Oct Up, Direct, Oct Down). When it's time for your solo, hit the bypass switch and you get the mix you wanted. Make sure you have at least one of the signals activated when you take the unit out of Bypass.. if you don't, the unit will mute and you'll be left with no signal!

- Activate the unit via the Bypass switch, and select only the Direct signal and leave it on. This will give you a clean, buffered signal with some available boost. When you want to add Octave Up, Down or both, just step on their associated switches.
- Use Octron2 as a Loop Switcher (see specs).

*Higher voltage - You can run Octron2 at higher voltage for increased headroom, which is most useful when using Octron2 with bass guitar. For example, 12V, 18V or higher. Do not exceed 30 Volts DC.

5 of 5 OCTRON 2 on Bass - Thumbs Up! September 30, 2010
Reviewer: Joe / TribeMarkStudio.com from Maryland - United States  
I've been searching for my perfect octave for a while. To name a few - Boss OC-2 and 3, EBS Octabass, MXR's newest M288 deluxe, Aguilar Octamizer and EHX's POG... The all had their similarities and stregnths / weaknesses - but none inspired me... The Pog stayed the longest with the digital tracking - but I really disliked the tone and hiss.

Enter the OCTRON 2...

right out of the Box - Wow! Tone is phenomenal. Pedal is dead quiet and tracking is great down to low A for octave below... Tracking on the octave up is perfect dow to low E... The Effect does add a nice harmonic distortion but once it sits in the mix - It just adds to the tone...

Surprisingly, the octave up is extremely usefull - with the right blend - it adds just a hair of fuzz to add to your bass line... When your guitar player takes a lead - kick it in and it's like adding in a distorted rythem under him...  Synth sounds are cool too...
