Fuzzrocious Pedals Knob Jawn

This gnarly octave pedal from Fuzzrocious Pedals combines analog and digital signals in a pretty clever way. Turning the big knob counter-clockwise gives you more analog upper octave and the other way blends digital octave up and octave down. The momentary switch on the left instantly flips the digital signal to the opposite octave for some pretty wild whammy-style effects. Available on March 15 for $175.
