|Equal parts mysterious and ghastly, the Phantom Octave is a shape-shifting octave fuzz
No controls? They're not necessary--they're at your fingertips! The Phantom Octave is
extremely interactive with your pickup selection, picking intensity, and your guitar's Tone
control. Like its namesake, the octave will disappear with picking intensity and by rolling back
your guitar's Tone control. Octave effect is strongest with low-output single coil pickups.
With the flip of your pickup selector and your picking technique, you'll find huge octave downs,
glitchy ring mod-ish tones, and even be able to bang out some simple chords! Set the
intensity of the effect by using your guitar's Tone control as a Blend. Roll your guitar's Tone
control all the way back, and you've got a chord-friendly fuzz!
The Phantom Octave is a very strange pedal compared to most octave fuzzes...in some
ways, it's more stable...in many ways, glitchier. It'll sound different with each set (and
combination) of pickups. Some pickup selections will produce more exciting results than
others. On most guitars, the Tone knob allows you to blend out the intensity of the octave
and glitch. Easier to master and jam on (which is not to call this beast stable, but)--for
example, you'll be able to get away with some bends and power chords! You'll quickly get
used to the sensitivity of the pedal and what different playing techniques and settings will
