Product Description

The Boss OC3 Super Octave Pedal gives guitarists high-quality octave effects with a single stomp.
Three modes are provided, including a new Polyphonic Octave mode, a Drive mode with distortion, and the original OC2 mode. The versatile OC3 also has separate inputs for both guitar and bass.

Octave Effects
The OC3 picks up where the best-selling OC2 left off, giving guitarists two brand new octave effects. Using the Polyphonic Octave mode, octaves can be added when playing chords. More aggressive sounds can be had using the Drive mode, which adds a touch of distortion to the octave sounds.

Boss OC3 Features

  • World's first compact pedal with true Polyphonic Octave effects
  • Drive mode adds distortion to octave notes for a fatter, more aggressive tone
  • Original OC2 mode, capable of producing notes one and two octaves down
  • Poly-Octave effect adjustable to play within a specific note range
  • Bass input for adapting octave sound to bass guitars
  • BOSS 5-year limited warranty
If You Loved the OC2
Don’t worry. BOSS knows how much guitarists depend on the original OC2 sound. That’s why the OC3 includes that classic dual octave effect, but with even better stability. This gives you the ability to blend up to three individual sounds: the original note, a note one octave below and one that’s two octaves below.

Bass Players Welcome
The OC3 isn't just for guitar, it’s also for bass. By connecting a bass guitar to the dedicated Bass input, the OC3 automatically optimizes itself to suit the range of a bass guitar. Now bass players can upgrade to the ultra-stable octave sounds of the OC3.

Recognized by guitarists everywhere as the world's first name in compact effects pedals, BOSS makes sure you get the tone you want every time you play. Whether it be classic or hard rock, blues, jazz, country, funk or something new, wild and completely on the edge, BOSS helps you find your tone.

Beyond the killer effects pedals, BOSS is also constantly pushing the envelope to develop innovative multi-effects, rhythm machines and other easy-to-use instruments for musicians of all types. Put simply, BOSS gives you the great-sounding tools you need to spend more time making great music.
