The GUP Tech Bloup! Octavia Fuzz Tribute is an homage to the Roger Mayer build of 1967. This particular fuzz has been made again and again, and here's our tribute. Tweaked around the TycoBrahe Octavia revision, with a proper transformer to bring that Octave UP fun, the Bloup! is a nice rendering of that vintage circuit, in modern manners.
Classic 9Vdc power, Volume and Boost control, we even the Octave Up mod to remove the Octave when switched up (Beefier tones ahead). It's not an easy fuzz, you'll have to goof around different pickups, guitars and amps to find the perfect way to use it.
At this point, you've clearly noticed the reversible-octopus-plushy design. The fun with that pedal is that we will choose what we'll send to you. Happy, sad, angry, blue, red, pink, etc. They are all internally the same but externally different. And you won't have any control over what you get. Why? Cause we can... and to add some surprise effect! Activate the RANDOMIZATOR.
Have a look at the November 2022 Prof Pinotte News for more info on the release.
