Hendrix-style Fuzz!

The Fulltone Octafuzz OF-2 gives you an exact copy of the venerable Tychobrahe Octavia in a brand-new unit! Whether you're chasing that elusive Hendrix tone, want to capture a little SRV magic, or want to create your own ringing, otherworldly vibe, the Octafuzz OF-2 gives you an essential ingredient for a tasty sonic stew. This pedal provides the kind of unique effect range that transcends mere fuzz and octave-up sounds. Its compact heavy steel enclosure, gloss powdercoat finish, and antique-white logo give the Octafuzz OF-2 a vintage look to go with its classic tone!

Fulltone Octafuzz OF-2 Octave Fuzz Pedal at a Glance:
  • Long-lasting pots
  • Who uses Fulltone?

Long-lasting pots
Fulltone's custom-made brass-shaft pots are among the strongest and smoothest feeling pots available. These amazing pots are mounted to the interior PCB board via a proprietary "thru-PCB" method rather than having the pot be secured by the pot terminals, drastically reducing pot-related failure. This method keeps Fulltone pedals up and running for the duration of your playing days. Plus, this eliminates the need for a bunch of jumper wires, keeping your tone as pure as humanly possible.

Who uses Fulltone?
The list of Fulltone fans reads like a who's who of guitar heroes. Both Ron Wood and Keith Richards have Fulltone gear in their touring rigs, as does Nigel Tufnel from the legendary British metal band Spinal Tap, and Boston bad-boys Joe Perry and Tom Hamilton. Punk/rockabilly mainstay Reverend Horton Heat is a Fulltone convert. Other notable Fulltone users include Pearl Jam's Stone Gossard, Jack Bruce of Cream, perennial alt rocker Lou Reed, and Tom Petty along with Heartbreaker Mike Campbell.

Fulltone Octafuzz OF-2 Features:
  • Volume and Boost controls
  • Switchable between "Fuzz" and "Octafuzz"
  • LED on/off indicator
  • True bypass

Why buy Fulltone?
Fulltone was founded in 1991 by session guitarist, composer, performer, and electronic tinkerer Michael Fuller. His pedals were born out of love for music and tone, as well as the frustration at the inconsistencies and the often fragile nature of vintage pedals. Fulltone pedals are 100% handmade in Southern California using the finest components, including custom-made 22-gauge copper wire with no tin coating, Fulltone-designed 3PDT switches, and custom-made brass shaft pots, mounted using Fulltone's proprietary "thru-PCB" method. The end result: Fulltone pedals are built to last and sound amazing.

Fuzz on!

This is one very nice pedal; it can do all I want it to do. I've noticed it prefers to be closer to the front of my pedal chain; further down the chain it seems to saturate and overpower all my other effects pedals, so bear that in mind. Sounds corny, but one of my favorite features about this pedal is that is made in the USA. When combined with something like an Effectrode Tube-Vibe pedal and some delay/echo, you'll be quite close to that Hendrix / Trower sound. Nice.

Crazy good

Not only does it nail the classic tones, but in the "standard fuzz" mode it is one of my favorite fuzz pedals (and I've tried just about all of them). Cleans up perfectly when you roll off the volume, has a nice crunchy bite. What I thought would be a special occasion pedal has turned out to be one of my "always on's".

It's fantastic but explain why I bought this

It's exactly what I wanted. Gets that Band of Gypsys-era octave fuzz sound, especially when you roll off the volume a tad. Don't know why, but there seems to be a beautiful sweet spot when the pedal gets a little less signal. Fantastic with single-coils and P-90's (haven't tried humbuckers yet). The big question is what will I do with an octave fuzz? Can anybody explain why GAS affects some of us in such a manner that a predominately acoustic musician would purchase such a device? Will I break into Jimi's "Who Knows?" in the middle of a James Taylor medley? Does Sweetwater offer support groups, or would sales decline? These are the answers I seek.

Fulltone octafuzz

Sounds too good to be true. This pedal lives up to the rave reviews. Is a match made in heaven with a wah. Octavia sounds are amazing and the fuzz alone is worth every penny. Almost whisper quiet with single coils. TONE FOR DAYS with this one. I hope MIke Fullerton doesn't start believing his own hype (which isn't hype) and raising his prices. Thanks to Sweetwater engineer Ed Nystrom, I'm gettin closer to the Jimi sound all the time.

great ring mod artifacts

According to Doc Fuller this is an exact rendering of the Tychobrahe Octavia circuit built to Fulltone higher end specs. 3 ways to use this pedal, turn the fuzz all the way down and just use the octave ring mod coolness into another drive or gain. Use fuzz by itself which is really intense for ge diodes. Or both at the same time like Gary Clark Jr uses it. Great pedal for the bucks to be sure. Campers do take note this is a reverse pos pin requiring the reverse cable and do not put a buffer in front of it and get it as up front chain as possible.
