Vaughan initially used Roger Mayer Octavia pedals (housed in distinctive “spaceship” metal boxes), but when Diaz located three New Old Stock Tycobrahe Octavia pedals, Vaughan switched to those.

Vaughan especially liked how the Octavia sounded when used along with a Tube Screamer." March 2013 Issue, page 65.more
