Generate some thundering bass tones by pairing your trusty electric guitar with the Boss OC-3 Super Octave Pedal. Octave pedals are perfect companions for those rock and heavy metal guitarists who love aggressive playing styles. This octave pedal follows the sublime legacy of the Boss OC-2. Its circuit design is based on OC-2 with some modifications. Two new octave effects are added in the OC-3 octave pedal, drive and polyphonic octave mode. For OC-2 fans, you need to turn the mode switch to receive the classic dual octave effect.
The OC-3 octave pedal features two octave effects, drive and polyphonic. With the polyphonic mode you can add octaves when playing chords. This pedal features an evolutionary step taken by Boss. Switch to drive mode and strum your guitar with aggression for achieving powerful bass in the tone. The octave pedal features a special mode dedicated for OC-2’s traditional ‘dual octave’ effects. It allows you to blend the original tone with the tone one octave below and the tone two octaves.
The Boss OC-3 includes a dedicated input for bass guitars. When you connect your bass guitar with the OC-3 octave pedal, it automatically revamps its settings to suit the heavy sound requirements. OC-3 provides stability for bass players when they generate an octave effect.
The quality of OC-3 lies in is simplicity and high-responsiveness. These two aspects matter the most when you perform live on stage or during a high-production recording session. In both situations, you want the best from your guitar and you as well. OC-3 ensures reliable operation in such high-pressure moments and keeps you focused on your performance. The controls of the octave pedal are easy to learn. Once you get familiarised with them, you can tweak them and try different possibilities for enhancing your performance.
