Octave/Pitch Shifters


The Augustus by Dusky Electronics is an octave fuzz pedal designed with a unique approach to deliver specific features and functionality. The pedal features controls for "Meat" (Bass), "Heat" (Gain), "Light" (Treble), and "More" (Volume). It operates with a 9V battery (not provided) or an external power supply of 9-18V, with 9V recommended (not provided). The Augustus is described as an octave fuzz in the spirit of the Octavia designed by Roger Mayer in the late 1960s for Jimi Hendrix. It works by rectifying the audio signal fed into it, folding each wave in two to double its frequency, resulting in a severely mangled waveform. This unique process allows for a wide range of effects, including soaring leads, synth-like timbres, echoes of ring mod, giant robot power chords, and percussive stabs, which can be achieved through manipulation of the "Heat" knob and playing technique. The pedal is equipped with MOSFET input and output amplifiers, providing a responsive, dynamic feel. Additionally, a high impedance input buffer ensures consistent sound quality regardless of its placement in the pedal chain. The Augustus offers a broad frequency response, making it suitable for use with various electrified instruments such as guitar, bass, baritone, synthesizer, and more. The Augustus is available for purchase at a price of $200 and is offered in a limited edition black and gold color scheme, featuring a printed circuit board process with a gold ENIG finish on the faceplate and a textured charcoal powder coat on the enclosure.


The Octomotron Fuzz by Dusky Electronics is a modern take on the classic octave-up psychedelic fuzz made famous in the 1960s. It features a robot octopus design and offers a brash, synth-like sound with an extended low-end response. The effect type is octave fuzz, and it is equipped with a volume knob and a bass boost switch for control. The pedal operates with a 9V battery or an external power supply ranging from 9-18V (not provided). Additionally, it includes a specially designed FET input buffer that ensures consistent performance regardless of its placement in the signal chain. The Octomotron is suitable for use with guitar, bass, or synthesizer, and it offers a wide range of tonal possibilities based on playing techniques and settings. The pedal is priced at $195.
