Death By Audio has released the Octave Clang, a fullwave-rectified, octave up pedal that ranges “from sweet octavia to abrasive sonic hell”.
The Octave Clang’s signal is run first through a density filter,
followed by an amplifier with gain ranging from 1-100. Next, the signal
is sent through a circuit that fullwave rectifies the signal slightly
asymmetrically for an extremely complex octavia sound. This pedal can
get really loud, really nasty, yet maintains a beautifully rich
Sound manipulation is made easy by controls for density filter,
gain, and master volume. Cranking up the gain and pre-filter induces
extreme fuzz and signal perversion. Every chord is an explosion and every note a seething buzz saw cutting through the mix, according to Death by Audio.
On the other end of the spectrum is the Clang. Turning down the gain
yields a more organic, analog sound. Strumming chords generates droning
ring modulation sounds while single notes resonate a singing octavia
All Death by Audio pedals are hand built in Brooklyn, NY using
premium components to ensure maximum durability and optimum sound.
