Carl Martin Introduces the Octaswitch Strip

A streamlined switcher that includes MIDI, 8 programmable loops, and more.

Denmark (March 22, 2021) -- The Carl Martin Octaswitch, already a legend in the guitar effect switching world, is on it's third evolution since the original.


The fourth version, named "The Strip" is the smallest and most advanced, taking all the technology used in the first three and adding some amazing features that make the Octaswitch The Strip the most versatile and simplest all-analog switching pedal on the market! At first glance, the 'Octaswitch The Strip' (designed once again and refined by Thomas Guldman), has all the same features as before. There are 8 fx loops that can be programmed into 8 banks. The loops are all true-bypass, impedance free gold relays so you can run all your pedals (old and new) without issue. The main input can be true bypass, or it can be switched to buffered for large stages or long cable runs. There are 8 blue LEDs that indicate which of the 8 loops is being used, and 8 green LEDs that indicate which Bank is being used. This is where the technology changes.....

Kenny Greenberg with his main axe, a vintage Gretsch 6118 Double Anniversary that he found at Gruhn Guitars in Nashville for a mere $600. “It had the original pickups, but the finish had been taken off and the headstock had been repaired. So, it’s a great example of a ‘player’s vintage instrument,’” he says.

On his solo debut, the Nashville session wizard discovers his own musical personality in a soundtrack for a movie that wasn’t, with stops in Africa and Mississippi hill country.

Kenny Greenberg has been Nashville’s secret weapon for decades. He’s the guitarist many insiders credit with giving the Nashville sound the rock ’n’ roll edge that’s become de rigueur for big country records since the ’90s. It’s the sound that, in many ways, delivered country music from its roots to sporting events.
