The OctaHive is a super high gain fuzz with a well pronounced high pitch octave. The octave mode can be turned on/off by the side toggle switch giving you a huge tonal range.
On the octave mode, things can get really nasty, splashy and gated. It’s great for high gain leads, specially when played above the 12th fret. With a little less Honey you can get that “purple haze” tone. At low gain settings it can produce “ring modulator” overtones, great for textures. The best way to achieve a well pronounced octave, is rolling back the Pre and tone control of your instrument. The balance between the Pre and Honey is the key to achieve a variety of different sounds.
With the octave off it’s a whole different pedal, producing a warm and thicker fuzz tone, making it more versatile and “chord friendly”. The OctaHive was based on the 1970′s Tycobrahe Octavia and it can produce classic and modern sounds. A great addition to every pedal board.
