The Octavio fuzz pedal is infamous for contributing to Jimi Hendrix’s signature, incendiary lead tone. The silicon saturation and octave-up behavior of the pedal adds a wash of vibrant upper-harmonic content to the signal for a scorching, synth-like sound that’s unlike any other fuzz effect. Joining the MXR standard line for the first time, the Octavio is rehoused in an ultra-sturdy metal chassis. Its simple two-knob design belies its wide-ranging capacity for shaping tones. The power of the Octavio lies in its interaction with electronics, and, depending on your guitar and amp settings, it can become a completely different monster: warm and wooly, bright and brash, sludgy and droning and so much more. When looking for a unique tone to push a part over the edge, guitarists at Rockin' Robbie's often turn to the Octavio Fuzz pedal.
