Why We Love This Product!

Hendrix-ian Octave Magic!

The Dunlop Jimi Hendrix Octavio octave divider features a stellar recreation of one of the mythical artist's tools - right down to every knob, jack, switch and circuit. Considered the "holy grail" of octave fuzz pedals, the Octavio "octave up" pedal was used by Hendrix to achieve some incredible textures. The Jimi Hendrix Octavio features front-panel level and fuzz controls.

Jimi Hendrix Octavio Octave Divider and Fuzz Pedal at a Glance:
    • Authentic reproduction
    • The Hendrix tone

The Hendrix tone
Jimi Hendrix was able to mold his guitar tones into incredible sonic textures and shapes, using only a few effects in addition to his cranked-up amp and guitar. In the process, he created an iconic sound that still makes jaws drop nearly 40 years later. When dedicated guitar effects became available in the 1960s, Hendrix was one of the completely first artists to embrace them as soundshaping tools, rather than gimmicky afterthoughts tacked on to a dry guitar tone. Many of his mythical solos and sonic journeys took advantage of effects such as the Crybaby wah, UniVibe chorus/vibrato, Fuzz Face distortion, and, naturally, the amazing Octavio "octave up" pedal.

Authentic reproduction
Unlike most guitarists of his day who were content to simply amplify the sound of their instruments, Hendrix actively sought out new tools to turn his guitar tones into malleable shapes that could range from chiming bells to roaring beasts to otherworldly sheets of sound. The original Octavio allowed Hendrix to conjure solo tones that brought even some of his most intense solos up another notch! It's all here: every knob and jack, a DPDT on/off switch, and the exact same circuit layout faithfully copied from the original "breadboard," front-panel controls which let you dial in just the right amount of fuzz and adjust overall level.
