Sunday morning coffee leads to finding a monophonic sub-octave generator, the Electro-Harmonix Octave Multiplexer. That’s fun to say, “monophonic sub-octave generator”. Pedal gets some nerd-points right out of the gate. I personally own a Boss OC-2, and have been really into octave pedals on and off in the past. Lately after looking at the POGs, I’ve sorta been back to looking at these. The main reason why this pedal caught my eye, is that it’s on clearance at Musician’s Friend, so it’s not a bad purchase to play with. It’s a single sub-octave pedal with filter switch to adjust the sub signal.
Here is the official description:
2 separate smoothing filters enable you to tailor your sub-octave signal to the exact bass sound you’re after. Run your vocals through it and sound just like Ike Turner! 9V battery included.
Electro-Harmonix Octave Multiplexer Pedal Features:
- Really fattens up your tone
- 2 smoothing filters provide total control
I found this good video by EHX showing it’s features for bass and guitar.
Currently the Electro-Harmonix Octave Multiplexer is a clearance item at Musician’s Friend. Quantity is limited to stock-on-hand. I’m also assuming it’s the older chassis design that is on clearance, but I’m not sure. If that is a issue, please contact Musician’s Friend. The Octave Multiplexer is currently available for $74.25 (normally lists for $99.00) at Musician’s Friend.
