Listed under Satriani's Fulltone artist page. It was used during the recording of *Engines of Creation*, as stated by Satriani in [this interview](https://www.premierguitar.com/articles/joe-satriani-ndash-creating-the-engine-1).

["This is the effect I used on the intro lead to “Before Tomorrow Comes.” It's an extremely versatile distortion/fuzz with an octave-up switch. It’s a great effect to kick on when you want to push your lead tone into extreme territory."](http://www.premierguitar.com/articles/20392-mark-tremontis-top-5-amps-and-myles-kennedys-top-5-pedals?page=3)more
Nowadays Andy’s been using a somewhat simpler rig. He has a Ernie Ball volume pedal, Klon Centaur overdrive, Menatone Red Snapper OD, Fulltone Ultimate Octave, couple of pedals from Red Witch including Empress Chorus and Moon Phaser, and a couple of rack effects like Eventide Eclipse Multi-Effects Processor, TC Electronics 1210 Spatial Expander and the Lexicon PCM70 Reverb.more

I believe this pedal is a highly refined foxx tone machine octave fuzz. If you want Octavia look at fulltones smaller octave box. I enjoyed this pedal but prefer the more subtle, always-on univox/FZ-2/standard fuzz type of sound personally... all in all Mike Fuller did a great job with the ultimate octave tonally on both the fuzz and octave sections and it has a really low noise floor for this sort of effect.
