Awesome Octave Fuzz For Guitar

Published 25 Sep 2020
Duration:
0:46:07

We discuss and demo the main flavours of octave fuzz guitar tones… and some other octaves too.

Life too short for long YouTube videos? Please see the ‘Interesting bits and go-to sections’ information below.

It had to happen eventually. Dan and I are both big fans of the octave fuzz sound, but it is a greatly varied thing and can be quite the challenge to add confidently to your rig.
With the help of a superb crop of modern pedals we howl and screech our way through the tones that might inspire you to give it a go. It’s aural honey for some of us, and worse than fingernails down the blackboard for many others.
It’s not only about Jimi… but boy is he a big part of this sound.

Enjoy the episode!
