    Dunno, I thought it was, but appears not. It's a good pedal.

    Good list btw.

    Added '(Rip) to those no longer made and (Fuzz) to those that are not just octave downs.
    Let me know if I missed any. :)

    You said no octave fuzzes but mentioned the submachine and blue box, which are both octave fuzzes that can't really do an octave down on its own as far as I can tell (definitely not the blue box). The MXR Slash also has a suboctave in it that can be used without fuzz if you just turn the fuzz all the way down.

    By contrast, the Emma Okto Nojs has both an octaver and a fuzz that can be used independently, like the Redwitch Zeus has.

    The Redwitch Factotum is an octaver and overdrive in the same vein.

    And for Foxrox, the Octron 1 and 2 also count, so maybe that should say "Octron series"

    Yes, I did say that but since people started bringing those too, I added them to my list and the parenthesis to indicate what's what. For the factotum I'll put 'od' in paranthesis.
    Focus will remain on 'Just' octave downs.
    No digitals admitted! :)
    I'll change foxrox to octron series.
