Jimi Hendrix™ Octavio® Effect
The original artifact is enshrined at the Experience Music Project, Seattle’s hallowed rock and roll museum. A chipped, off-white, “cheese wedge” pedal with barely visible hand stenciled lettering, Hendrix’s original octave divider doesn’t look like much. But this is the magic box that produced the unforgettable fuzzed-out octave tones heard on Hendrix anthems such as “Purple Haze” and “Fire.”
A team of Dunlop engineers made a pilgrimage to Seattle to dissect and document Jimi’s original Octavio—the holy grail of octave tone. The result? The Dunlop Jimi Hendrix Octavio is an exact clone of the amazing “octave up” pedal that Jimi used to make rock history. It’s all here: every knob and jack, a DPDT on/off switch, and the exact same circuit layout faithfully copied from the original “breadboard,” front-panel controls which let you dial in just the right amount of fuzz and adjust overall level. Own a little piece of Jimi—the Dunlop Jimi Hendrix Octavio.
