BOSS OC-5: The Next-Generation Octave Compact Pedal
Back in 1982, BOSS developed the iconic OC-2, the world's first modern guitar and bass octave pedal. After twenty years the octave effect was reimagined as the polyphonic OC-3. And now, almost twenty years later, it's time for a new standard in octave pedals. The BOSS OC-5 is a next-generation octave pedal; the industry-standard, updated with enhanced features!
Newly developed tracking technology provides a more accurate response; a natural feel and zero latency. With the addition of an octave-up feature, a span of three octaves is now available for creative exploration. The new octave-up effect is available on its own or blended with octave-down effects. There's also a direct out for wet/dry setups!
Vintage mode provides an authentic recreation of the legendary mono OC-2 from 1982, while Poly mode offers numerous enhancements for extended-range playing.
Poly mode for chord playing; the new Range knob sets the note range where the effect is applied – the Lowest Range setting in Poly mode applies the octave effect to only the lowest note in a chord.
Lastly: a top-side mode switch optimises the sound engine for guitar or bass.
BOSS continue to prove that the best can in fact get better! Give us a call to learn more about the OC-5 and how you can get one at your feet (do feet have fingertips? that's a weird thought, don't answer that), send us an email, or simply hit the button to place an order through the webstore!
