"The OCTAVIA is probably our most famous and distinctive creation. This guitar effect was designed in early 1967 and featured on "Purple Haze" and "Fire" by Jimi. Its unique tones can also be heard on such tracks as "One Rainy Wish", "Little Miss Lover", "Little Wing", "Machine Gun" etc. The OCTAVIA produces a sound that is an octave higher than the note you are presently playing. This doubling effect is accomplished through electronic mirror imaging techniques that are program sensitive and also respond to the feed forward
inputs of the player. The electronic circuitry is analogue in design and will react faithfully to all the subtleties and harmonic overtones from the guitar. The effect produced is very unique but human in quality. The added improvements plus the use of a Wide Bandwidth Ferrite Transformer make the Purple Haze Octavia the ultimate modern version of the Original Invention I produced in 1967."
Jimi's original Octavia recently sold at auction for an eye watering $70,400 but Roger is now giving you the chance to get a slice of that iconic tone at a much more wallet friendly price!
