    Am looking for an octave pedal that does one octave higher instead of the usual low ones on the market. Anybody has any recommendations? Can't seem to find one on the market.

    Digitech Whammy does that function as well as about 15 others.

    again another vote for the digitech whammy.

    I believe there was a threa dlike this about a week ago.

    The akai unibass would also work as would a boss pitch shifter ps-3 I think the model is.

    Hope this helps

    It seems cool but over 300 for an octaver ?

    what about the electro harmonix bass micro synth?, that does both, if you set the filter sweep flat you can just use the pedals sub octave, high octave as soounds, also you have a whole load of places to go

    its easy to dismiss this pedal as a crazy noise machine but subtle use of the effects can save you a whole pedal budjet!

    The Boss PS-5 Super shifter goes up or down 2 octaves.

    if you just want an octave up, the only one i know that is analog is the octavia, i've got the Danelectro french toast octavia, there are others companies that make octavia (dunlop, roger mayer, voodoo lab, fulltone and so on). This effect was used by jimi hendrix on the album "band of gypsies". Withe almost every octavia (and octavers) it's better to play single notes with it, chords don't work very well. :bassist:

    Time to be grateful for being born in the land of plenty. In the consumer rip off world that we call the UK, the POG is over $500 :help:
