Classic Octave-up Effect

There's something beautiful about a pedal that does only one thing and does it well, and the EarthQuaker Devices Tentacle octave-up effect is just such a pedal. In fact, this analog octave-up effect pedal only exists because guitarists who fell in love with the octave-up effect from the Hoof Reaper pedal demanded EarthQuaker Devices create a standalone stompbox out of it. Guitarists at Sweetwater really love the way the Tentacle behaves when you lay it on higher up the fretboard, and if you combine the Tentacle with a classic fuzz pedal, you can practically summon the ghost of Jimi Hendrix.

Stomp it and Go!

Not much to say about this pedal other than it does just what you need it to. No knobs, no nonsense, just hairy fuzz and a special surprise past the 12th fret!

Great, Simple Pedal

This simple pedal does exactly what it's supposed to. It pairs great with my fuzz and overdrive pedals. The artwork is awesome too. Thank you EQD and Sweetwater!!

Get No Knob Naked

First off, this is an All analog do one thing and do it well pedal. There are no options, no shaping, no knobs, and no nonsense. BUT... If you aren't ready to get weird, stay away from this pedal. I personally love it and for many songs leave it on the whole time. It chops up my guitar sound, acts as an attenuating control over my fuzz and sustain pedals, and above the 12th fret give me a wailing octave tone when dialed into the neck pickup, and below the 12th holds your notes slightly short with a bizarre square shaped reverb, something. I would have given it five stars if it had an expression pedal hookup. But that is me being picky. This pedal does its job amazingly, unpredictable analog tone for those looking for something a little different from the whammy and pitchfork. Party on Earthquaker Devices.
