Versatile octave effects with boutique-style control.

Aside from its laser-etched, boutique-style artwork, its controls include Thorns, Merge and Fragrance. Thorns determines the intensity and tracking of the octave-below effect. Merge controls the mix between the original input and the effect. Fragrance controls the overall tonal color of the effect. A special switch called Roots allows you to go from a heavy crunch to a thinner, smoother sound. Also features wet/dry outputs and true-bypass operation.

Comes in a rugged metal chassis with retro-style, laser-etched artwork and includes a black velvet carrying bag.

      Comments about Rocktron Black Rose Octaver Octave Guitar Effects Pedal:

      I got this pedal a few years ago for christmas. I typically play through two amps at a time, pushing this pedal through a peavey bass amp. My Fender Princeton can't handle some of the frequencies this pedal produces, but when you find it's sweet spot, its great. Overall its a good pedal, but I feel it might be a bit overpriced.

      Decent pedal if you just want octave down!

      By DetroitLP

      Comments about Rocktron Black Rose Octaver Octave Guitar Effects Pedal:

      I tried this inexpensive octaver to cos I was not certain if it would suit my style. First this pedal does not suck any tone. I found a sound I liked and this pedal is really growing on me now. Thick gives a nice punchy bass tone then I set merge to ~11oclock and tone/fragrance to 12oclock then tracking/thorns to ~10oclock. Gives a smooth bassy thick backing that doesnt drown out the lead. Play slowly and you can hear some tracking problems but most of the time it sounds great. Thin setting is a bit harsh esp if you turn tone/fragrance up. Its well built. Im sure its not as good as a MicroPOG but Im very pleased so far.

      Super cool pedal

      By Tele 335

      Comments about Rocktron Black Rose Octaver Octave Guitar Effects Pedal:

      Just got the Rocktron Black Rose Octaver today and have not stopped playing it. I have a good number of pedals but was looking for something fun and different. I prefer the thin setting (toggle switch) for solo's, the thick setting offers suprisingly realistic bass sounds. If you use a looping device this will give you the sound of a bass guitar to use in your layers. The thin setting gives you a Hammond organ sound with distortion ala Deep Purple. Depending on your setting, can also sound like a guitar synth. Again, just got it so will continue to explore the possible sound effects. Overall a fun pedal. My son is a non-pedal guy but loves this Black Rose. I am very pleased with this purchase.
