NEW Jimi Hendrix Guitar Effects Pedals | Analog BC108 Fuzz Face + Octavia, 2 Pedals in One
Elite Tone’s Fillmore Thunder Awarded by Premier Guitar’s staff 5/5 picks Premier Gear. And for good reason, is economical solution the budding Jimi Hendrix fan. The Fillmore takes on two great tonal challenges. First we start with a four control BC108 Fuzz and blend a stock 1969 silicon fuzz face variation mix in the verified Hendrix modification for authentic fuzz tones. This type of fuzz was not ever commercially available til recently. While vintage Fuzz Faces fetch $600+ dollars a pop just for the old pedal. The Fillmore has got the secret sauce the an the result is one of the most versatile fuzz boxes available today.
We didn’t stop there. The next challenge was to build a separate channel octave channel. Getting that true 60’s octave pedal sound is not as easy as it seems. Many clones of the Tycobrahe Octavia seem to fail to deliver the right sound. My guitarists have voiced this concern “why does the Octavia/Octavio sound so tinny and there’s almost no hint octave up sound?” what about those limited sweet spots “I can only play one string at a time and when I do I have to play around the 12th fret!” if you can relate then you know what I mean.
The Fillmore’s independent octave up isn’t your run of the mill Octavia, because well not many people have owned just one octave pedal and frequently acquire many hoping to find the right one. So many companies sell Octavia’s and claim to be the best clone of the Tycobrahe, which is a clone in and of itself. What we are left with is the who can believe. Another famous company claims to have made a pilgrimage to reverse engineer a real Octavia sitting in museum that Jimi stepped on 40+ years ago, why aren’t their any documentation of this noble pilgrimage? If you went to all that trouble and do you really think a blind eye was turned to allow an artifact in respected museum to be pilfered? Another individual says he invented the Octavia for Jimi personally. Could he have forgotten how to make his own one off pedal after all those years? Those who own that pedal still aren’t satisfied, the quest typically continues. Is the missing link the sum of Jimi’s skill first and equipment second, absolutely!
Time for something new to solve an old problem.
During the construction of our retake on this octave up pedal, we literally throw the book out the window and starting from scratch built a fully functional octave ring modulator. Play chords with ease, soloing up and down the whole neck unimpeded all the while enjoy the clean well articulated steel drum like sounds of new take on the old classic. Save your money, stop the search, try the Fillmore Thunder ($177) by Elite Tone today.
