The Dunlop Jimi Hendrix Octavio effects pedal is an homage to the original artifact that is enshrined at the Experience Music Project. A chipped, off-white, "cheese wedge" pedal with barely visible hand stenciled lettering, Hendrix's original octave divider doesn't look like much. But this is the magic box that produced the unforgettable fuzzed-out octave tones heard on Hendrix anthems such as "Purple Haze" and "Fire."
A team of Dunlop engineers made a pilgrimage to Seattle to dissect and document Jimi's original Octavio—the holy grail of octave tone. The result? The Dunlop Jimi Hendrix Octavio is an exact clone of the amazing "octave up" pedal that Jimi used to make rock history. It's all here: every knob and jack, a DPDT on/off switch, and the exact same circuit layout faithfully copied from the original "breadboard," front-panel controls which let you dial in just the right amount of fuzz and adjust overall level.

Bought this to run with a American Standard Strat with VN pickups into a modded Blues Jr and/or a JVM210C (thru ABY) and the reactions from the band ranged from abject horror to begging me to turn it off. I ran through every iteration and combination of guitar, pedal and amp settings I could and it went from horrible to just useless. I couldn't find a single pleasing tone from the youtube demos...its boxed up and heading back. It didn't add noise or tone suck when turned off which is the only position I can recommend you use it in. It is in a MXR enclosure so it will survive. Am not a MXR hater - I run a microchorus, carbon copy and a modded wylde wah.
