While octave pedals are not as common of an effects pedal to find on a pedalboard as distortion or overdrive pedals, their presence in recorded music has grown ever since the use of an octave pedal was popularized by the playing of legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix. Octave pedals work by shifting the octave of played notes, most frequently by moving one octave up or down. However, because octave pedals can be used to create fuzzy overtones, some pedal makers have begun incorporating fuzz pedal circuitry to push the audio signal even further into the red. These octave pedals are great for single note leads, and you’ll find contemporary musicians such as Jack White implementing octave pedals into their rigs. No matter what your reason for adding an octave pedal to your setup would be, at Music Toyz we have you covered with great options such as the Earthquaker Devices Hoof Reaper Octave Fuzz and Chicago Iron Octavian Special Edition Octave Pedal alongside killer octave pedals from Digitech and Zvex Pedals.
