An octavia pedal like you never heard before. More vintage than vintage. Built with new old stock germanium transistors and diodes
The Reuss Octaviaze pedal came about from experimenting with the Warren Ellis Muzzbox circuitboard. This is basically a vintage 1960s Octavia circuit built with a pair of germanium NPN transistors replacing the silicons that goes into every other Octavia past and present. The sound is something else too. Extremely complex and very, very cool. Softer and warmer and less abrasive sounding than the usual Octavia. But still wild and crazy. Only 33 pedals in the first batch.
