Gives a new definition to the word "SCREAM"!
It faithfully re-creates the Foxx Tone Machine from the early '70s, the best 'octave up' effect of all time. For piercing, shrieking, scalp-searing solos, you NEED this machine.
The Black Lips' octave distortion pedal of choice. According to this inofficial interview - http://thischarmingsaucepan.tumblr.com/post/23483448523/fuzz-wisdom-from-the-black-lips-cole-alexander - Cole had this to say: ""That little French Toast is a killer pedal man…" He went on to tell me that back home they had crates full of every kind of vintage and modern fuzz imaginable, which I could entirely believe, but that the Danelectro was above and beyond the most fun fuzz he’d ever played. Before we left him I thought I’d chance my arm and ask him what fuzz was used on 'Veni Vidi Vici.’ He pointed at his pedal board towards the surf green box of madness in question."more
this is one of the coolest octave pedals i've ever heard. literally this thing is the fuzziest, most out of control fuzz pedal i've ever owned. you cannot completely control this thing and that's one very cool component to it. it's perfect for insane leads and heavy, thick pulsating fuzz.
This pedal is great for one note at time, or power chords. However it is very had to get good sounds from regular chords. I think it works great for solos and riffs. On the fuzz side, it is very versatile. I am thinking on using it for solos only, as it has a great sustain. The octave mode doesn't work for me at all. =/
