The Octa-Plus is an easy-to-build knob analog octave up that matches perfectly with any tipe of fuzzes.
This multipurpose board allows you to choose which version you want to build, the vintage one based on the green ringer or the more modern inspired on EQD Tentacle.
The Octa-plus is an analog octave up; the effect will become much more pronounced when using your neck pickup and playing above the 12th fret.
The real magic of this circuit isn’t the simplicity by itself; you will see this unit’s true potential once you pair it with other pedals.
With a fuzz after the octave on the chain, you will be able to achieve any crazy octave-up fuzzy goodness. You can try with the killer combo of the Horn Device and the Reaper Device, just as on the EQD Hoff Reaper, experiment with the Ra’s Pharaoh to unleash total doomy madness, go crazy with the Fuzz Maker, or get on Jimi Hendrix shoes with the Voodoo Fuzz!
You can fit this small board altogether with some other circuits in the same enclosure to pair them together and create unique custom pedals at your taste.
- No controls 😀
