Personally used gear by Walter Becker of Steely Dan bought at auction.
Pedal has been tested and sounds great!
The Chicago Iron Octavian Plus has the same great circuit as the Tycobrahe Octavia, but with the 4 most popular player requested features. First, a foot switchable octave. An additional foot switch has been added to allow the pedal to to be switched from fuzz to octave on the fly. Second, a dual color indicator LED that shows red for fuzz and green for octave. Third, giant size knobs that are easily adjusted with the foot. Fourth and last the paint has been replaced with chrome for durability and a more modern up-to-date look. Sound is the same!
NOTE: The hangtag in the photo is to show provenance only and will not be included with the pedal. We received one hangtag for the entire lot.
The Chicago Iron Octavia was reconstructed with the help of the original Tycobrahe team, using units handpicked by late César Diaz. The Tycobrahe Octavia was used by players like Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughan and Tony Iommi. Current users include Tony Iommi, Slash and Velvet Revolver among many others.

The Chicago Iron Works Octavian Plus is an octave and boost pedal based on the circuit of the Octavia pedal. It features a switch between 60s and 70s tones, controls for Volume and Boost, and individual footswitches for the octave and overdriven effects.
You get four great sounds in one pedal and two foot switches to use either effect on the fly. Imagine crankin’ a solo in an awesome vintage fuzz and kicking in the Tycobrahe octave without the hassle of unity gain between the two devices. At Chicago Iron they take great pride in their prodcuts. What they have done to bring back a great vintage pedal with the Chicago Iron Tycobrahe Octavia and Octavian, has been enhanced and updated. They added a switch to allow the pedal to be used as a fuzz as well as a standard Tycobrahe Octavia octave pedal. They also decided to use a dual mode LED, red for fuzz and green for octave.
Chicago Iron also added the 60’s / 70’s phase drive switch that provides the two most famous octave sounds from both the 60’s and 70’s. Same great tone and touch sensitivity as all of of the famous Tycobrahe™ style hand matched hand made octave circuits. Just enhanced.
