Boss OC-3 Super Octave · Guitar Effect

BOSS OC-3 Super Octave
The world’s first octave pedal with polyphonic octave effects! Finally there’s a pedal which also lets you add octaves when playing chords as well. Using the range control you also have the opportunity to decide about which notes on the fretboard you want octaves added to. The OC-3 offers three modes: Polyphonic octave mode for playing chords, drive mode with distortion and the original OC-2 mode. The versatile OC-3 pedal can also be used with bass guitars where it will adapt to suit the frequency range of a bass guitar.

Features at a glance:

  • The world’s first polyphonic octave pedal which finally enables you to add octaves when playing chords as well
  • Drive mode adds distortion to octave effects for more aggressive sounds or “analogue synth”-like sounds
  • Features the original OC-2 mode which produces notes one and two octaves down, each adjustable in terms of volume
  • Range control for selecting the notes that are to be added with an octave
  • Bass input where it switches to the frequency range of a bass guitar

Boss Compact
The Boss compact pedal series can be described justifiably as the most successful pedal design of all time. In 1977 the first compact pedal came onto the market and caused a sensation - power supply connection, noiseless MOSFET footswitch, check LED and a uniform, ultra stable housing - all these features have set bench marks for the effect device design. The compact pedal series is more relevant than ever and offers a wide range of equipment effects.
