Boss OC-3 Super Octave|Boss OC-3 Super Octave is now part of! All the Boss pedals you love are still here, along with expert reviews of electric guitars, amps, and more.

The OC-2 has been around for a very long time so when the time came to replace it, the new pedal would have to have some new featuers. The OC-3 incorporates a digital design, featuring 3 different modes; Drive, Octave2 and Polyphonic. In Octave2 mode, the OC-3 will work the same way as the OC-2 did and add two octave sounds to the incoming sound. In Drive mode, distortion is added to the sound and in Polyphonic mode, you can add octaved sounds to chords.
