Today, I thought I would like to talk about the Voodoo Lab Proctavia pedal. Here we have a fuzz/octave pedal that pumps out some quality *classic* tone. What really got me interested was the video by voodoolabvid which featured Tim Pierce playing the pedal back in 1997. Good stuff..
But first, here are the details of the pedal:
Voodoo Lab’s Proctavia is a fuzz/octave pedal that re-creates the unique sound heard on classic tracks like “Purple Haze.” Proctavia is an exact replica of Tycobrahe Sound Company’s Octavia pedal which creates a note an octave higher than the original. The sound of the Octavia effect can also be heard on numerous tracks by Jeff Beck, John Mayer, and Michael Landau.
Known for an aggressive, stringy sting, the original Octavia is prized by vintage stompbox collectors everywhere. Proctavia replicates the exact sound of the original and incorporates the same types of transistors, germanium diodes, and transformer-coupled output stage in its circuitry.
Voodoo Lab Proctavia Pedal Features:
* Classic fuzz/octave tones
* True bypass switching with LED
* Hand built in the U.S.A.
* Five-year warranty
You can pick up the Voodoo Lab Proctavia Pedal for $129.00 at Musician’s Friend.
