The OC-3 is the world’s first polyphonic octave pedal. The OC-3 features three modes, including a new Polyphonic Octave mode, a Drive mode with distortion, and the original OC-2 mode. The OC-3 picks up where the best-selling OC-2 left off, giving guitarists two brand new octave effects. Using the Polyphonic Octave mode, octaves can now be added when playing chords - a first in a compact pedal. More aggressive sounds can be had using the new Drive mode, which adds a touch of distortion to the octave sounds.  the OC-3 includes that classic “dual octave” effect, but with even better stability. This gives you the ability to blend up to three individual sounds: the original note, a note one octave below and one that’s two octaves below. The OC-3 isn’t just for guitar, it’s also for bass. By connecting a bass guitar to the designated Bass input, the OC-3 automatically optimizes itself to suit the frequency range of a bass guitar. Now bass players can upgrade to the ultra-stable octave sounds of the OC-3.

Boss gets this one right!


I love this pedal, whether it's to make my guitar sound like a bass or to add some fuzz and distortion. It's a must have to add to your rig.



This is why I choose Sam Ash over any competitor


It's nice to go in a store with a simple idea of a sound in mind and walk out satisfied with a item that I know before unboxing is exactly what I need! Sam Ash takes this time with you to get exactly what you need and nothing you don't!





Awesome effects pedal



Bass for when it sounds right


Chances are you need this for bass tones in the poly mode.. sounds great on some things, and not so much on others. The bass frequency sounds a bit artificial. You'll find that it also degrades the output volume of your signal as well, so a boost or eq pedal is a nice addition with it, it seems. I did use this in a Bose house surround system and it sounded absolutely stunning. A nice addition on the right song.



The Only Octave Pedal that can be Used to PLAY CHORDS!!!


Polyphonic Octave Mode can be used to play chords and it sounds awesome. You can dial in this pedal so many different ways it's unbelievable. I don't know what the other's problems with use are, I thought this pedal was very easy to DIAL IN and get many sounds but I guess if you don't have a GOOD EAR then maybe you will have issues. So whether your looking to make your own distinct sound (EVH, Navarro, Slash, Morello, etc.) or simply add some PHAT-FUNK sound this is your pedal. Very Versatile and Capable of a Wide Variety of Sounds. I don't want to forget to give TWO THUMBS UP to SAM ASH for FAST & SAFE Shipping and as always the BEST DEALS ONLINE!!!

A must have for any guitarist


This pedal really expands the sound of guitar. I really enjoy the polyphonic octave setting. As stated above, it is a bit difficult to use (especially with the polyphonic, you have to set the dials perfectly to get stable chords). But any difficulty in use eventually fades away as you begin to use it more. overall, it is an excellent addition to my pedal collection.

Very Good


This is a really good octavator pedal. I would suggest this to any bass player. It is not very good with guitars because it does not handle chords to well.
