Jim Dunlop - Jimi Hendrix Octavio JH0C1
Dunlop Manufacturing have a history of creating innovative and original effects and accessories for musicians. Boasting classics in their current line-up such as the Fuzz Face, Heil Talk Box and Crybaby wah-wah it’s truly evident that Dunlop have a very clear goal in sight- quality, durability and great tone.
A true Rock N’ Roll artifact—Hendrix’s chipped, off-white, “cheese wedge” pedal with hand stenciled lettering—is enshrined at the Experience Music Project, Seattle’s hallowed rock and roll museum. Jimi’s original octave dividers don’t look like much, but these magic boxes produced the unforgettable fuzzed-out octave tones heard on the legendary Band of Gypsys: Live at Fillmore East performance.
Recently a team of Dunlop engineers made a pilgrimage to Seattle to examine and document an original Octavio—the holy grail of octave tone. They measured and scoped with loving care. 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 power on/off switch, and the exactsame 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. Turn the LEVEL knob all the way to minimum (full counter clockwise) and you will hear and feel a "click" that switches the units power off, just like the original unit. Own a little piece of Jimi—the Dunlop Jimi Hendrix Octavio.
