MXR Slash’s Octave Fuzz

Two legendary and timeless icons of rock music—Slash and MXR Innovations—have teamed up to deliver the Slash Octave Fuzz. It features a searing Fuzz tone coupled with a separate Sub Octave voice and an Octave Up Fuzz, all for thickening up your tone with a sinister growl. With an array of external and internal controls, there are numerous ways to combine the main Fuzz effect’s thick 70s shag with the chainsaw grind of the Octave Up Fuzz and the warm growl of the Sub Octave. Internal Gain and Tone pots shape the Octave Up Fuzz effect. Featuring custom Slash artwork and a distressed hot-rod paint job, the Slash Octave Fuzz all analog circuitry, true hardwire bypass comes in a heavy duty housing with durable jacks and switches.

The analogue pedal features separate Sub Octave and Octave Up Fuzz ‘voices’, the first of which can be run dry or switched into the 70s-style ‘shag’ fuzz circuit.

There’s also the option to run the pedal as a straight fuzz unit and to separately blend both the Sub Octave and Octave Up effects into your tone via dedicated control knobs.

In addition, the MXR Slash Octave Fuzz pedal comes emblazoned in the by now customary Slash ‘R N Fn’ R’ graphics and features true-bypass switching.
