The Octane 3 is a ridiculously musical fuzz pedal with an octave-up effect blended in. The Octane 3's circuit uses a combination of germanium diode and transistor fuzz generation and a ring modulator to turn simple chords into nutso note combinations and complex chords into incredible noise. It also makes solos soar impossibly high. The Octane 3 has a simple but powerful three-knob control set for output, input drive, and a mid-scooping tone control. The Octane 3 has the exact same audio circuit as its predecessors, but has a special LED switching system that preserves the true-bypass while adding an LED on/off indicator. Also, this switching system silences the pedal's circuitry while it is in the off mode so it doesn't squeal or hiss in the background.
