Sound Like Jimi Hendrix

Hi all,

we’re starting a new series of videos to help you achieve some of Hendrix guitar sounds with various gear. First in the series is a demo of a Fulltone Octafuzz OF-2 pedal:

Octafuzz… the only exact circuit copy of the legendary Tycobrahe Octavia. Cool Octave-Up sounds a la Hendrix “Band of Gypsies” and SRV’s many live shows! Housed in a 14ga. steel enclosure with a beautiful ranar-blue gloss powdercoat finish and antique-white logo, this pedal is the reincarnation of the Tycobrahe.

Next in the series we have Fuzz Face Mini – Band of Gypsys

Over the course of ’69-’70, Jimi Hendrix appeared at a few of his most noted live appearances – Live at Woodstock, Live at Berkeley, and Live at the Fillmore East– using a mysterious red Fuzz Face Distortion with white knobs. That fuzz box sounded like a completely different animal from any of the other Fuzz Face pedals in Jimi’s arsenal, snarling with a far more aggressive, biting tone.
