The BOSS OC-5 Octave Pedal is powered by the latest real-time processing technologies from BOSS and gives you exceptional sound, playability, and the most expressive octave experience to date.

The OC5 combines classic BOSS octave tones with the latest tracking technologies and sets a new benchmark in octave pedal performance. 

A key feature in this BOSS octave pedal is a new tracking engine, which delivers clean, accurate performance with no latency. The OC-5 also offers a wider range and greater polyphonic capabilities than its predecessor, covering all your octave needs in one high-performance pedal.

Additionally, the OC5 also boasts an evolved version of the smart Poly mode that was introduced with the OC-3 Super Octave pedal, allowing you to play full chords with octave effects. Add to that the Vintage mode from the BOSS OC2, which delivers the famed mono sound, but with improved response.

Another cool OC-5 enhancement is the new octave-up effect, which is available in both Vintage and Poly modes. Just twist the dedicated +1 OCT knob to bring in the desired effect level. You can use the octave-up effect on its own for simulated 12-string sounds and unique solo tones, or blend it with the octave-down effects for extended chord voicings and fat leads.

Standout Features

  • Innovative real-time processing technology
  • The latest tracking technology provides a more accurate response with a natural feel and no latency
  • Vintage mode faithfully reproduces the mono sound of the original OC-2
  • Poly mode for chord playing
  • New octave-up effect
  • Mode switch optimizes the tracking engine for guitar or bass
  • Direct out for wet/dry setups

The variable Range knob restricts the effect to the lower notes on your instrument, perfect for playing octave bass lines alongside normal chords and melodies in the higher registers. And with the new tracking refinements, it’s even possible to isolate the octave effect to the bottom note in a chord—just turn the Range knob to the lowest setting.

The OC-5 lets you optimize the performance of its tracking engine for either guitar or bass with the dedicated switch on the pedal. With the Direct Out jack, it’s easy to route dry and effect sounds to different destinations, like two-stage amps or discrete channels on a PA mixer.

Let’s not forget the dedicated level controls provided for -1 and -2 octave effects and the direct sound, giving you quick access to an endless variety of sub-octave colors.

From fat, low mono sounds to octave-shifted chords and more, the OC-5 BOSS octave pedal delivers the widest range, finest sound quality, and best playability in any octave pedal to date. Contact Andy’s and order yours today.
