Let it be known, CHAKA is more than just an Octave-Fuzz! With the octave-effect disengaged, CHAKA is a straight-forward, yet fairly aggressive, high-gain fuzz pedal.
With the octave-effect engaged, you will hear the presence of an upper-harmonic octave. The octave effect works ONLY with the fuzz engaged and cannot be used as a stand-alone effect!
Depending on how you play (sometimes the sloppier the better) you may hear some random/quirky overtones and pitch-modulation that happen as a result of the octave-side being monophonic… You can still play chords, but they will most likely sound like spaceships or Godzilla screams!
This is definitely the meanest and loudest pedal in our line-up. Great for guitar, bass, synths, drum machines, you name it…
*Please note that CHAKA runs only off a standard 9v (100ma) power supply with a 2.1mm barrel connector (negative center).
*Pedal DOES NOT ship with a power adapter. We recommend using an isolated DC power supply.
