About Octave Pedals
Octave pedals add a pitch-shifted signal on top of your normal signal; in an octave interval. Combining your guitar signal with an octave up imitates the sound of a twelve-string guitar; whereas combining your guitar signal with an octave down gives the impression of a bass playing in perfect time with you. You can also remove your dry signal so that you can create whacky high-pitched guitar solos or play a bass part when you don’t have a bass guitar.
Octave pedals are not just for electric guitar players though! Bass players have adopted them. Adding an octave down to a bass part gives it an incredible sub-bass fullness whereas an octave up during a riff or solo helps players cut through a mix. Octave pedals are especially popular - almost as a necessity - among two-piece rock bands where there is a single guitarist or bassist with a drummer. The White Stripes, The Black Keys, Royal Blood, and Death From Above 1979 all rely on octave pedals to fill out their sound.
