Rocktron Introduces Black Rose Octaver

The Black Rose Octaver is a new addition to the Rocktron Boutique Series of stompboxes.

Battle Creek, MI (May 20, 2010) -- The Black Rose Octaver is a true-bypass pedal that comes in a rugged metal chassis with retro custom designed laser etched artwork.

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.

A special switch, called Roots, allows you to go from thick (heavy crunch) to thin (smoother). The Black Rose has two outputs. The first is called output Wet, which contains the mixed octave effect. The second is called output Dry, which provides the feed through of the original input source with no effect.

The Black Rose Octaver has an LED indicator for the footswitch effect on/off. The footswitch on the Black Rose Octaver controls On/Off status (indicated by the LED). This stomp box runs on a 9V Alkaline battery and may also be powered by Rocktron’s DC OnTap Universal Power Adaptor. The pedal's street price is $119.
