No wonder many guitarists lust for other instruments like the bass, six-string bass, 12-string guitar or—the horror—ukulele or mandolin.

Rocktron Black Rose Octaver Stomp Box Guitar Pedal

Nothing sounds quite like an Octaver, and Rocktron makes that point with the introduction of the Black Rose!

Part of the Rocktron Boutique Series of stomp boxes, the Black Rose comes in a rugged metal chassis with retro-custom designed, laser-etched artwork. The Black Rose Octaver is a true bypass pedal: when turned of it is out of the signal path.

Controls for the Black Rose Octaver include: Thorns, Merge, and Fragrance. Thorns determines the intensity and tracking (-12 steps) of the Octave below Effect. Merge controls the Mix between the original input and the Octave effect. Fragrance controls the overall tonal color of the effect.
