The Beetronics FX OctaHive is a super high gain fuzz with a well pronounced high pitch octave. The octave can be turned off by the toggle switch, turning it into a warmer and thicker fuzz pedal. Great for high gain leads, specially when played above the 12th fret. At low gain settings it can produce “ring modulator” overtones.
On the octave mode, things can get really nasty, splashy and gated. It’s great for high gain leads, specially when played above the 12th fret. With a little less Honey you can get that “purple haze” tone. At low gain settings it can produce “ring modulator” overtones, great for textures.
The best way to achieve a well pronounced octave, is rolling back the Pre and tone control of your instrument.
The balance between the Pre and Honey is the key to achieve a variety of different sounds.OCTAVE OFF
With the octave off it’s a whole different pedal, producing a warm and thicker fuzz tone, making it more versatile and “chord friendly”.
The OctaHive was based on the 1970’s Tycobrahe Octavia and it can produce classic and modern sounds. A great addition to every pedal board.
