    “Eerily reminiscent of iconic later 1960s Hi-Octave sound effects with that vowel-y, vocal and voodoo haunting mid-range! Truly an analog sound effect of an exploding Purple Star into Purple Stardust™!”

    Kyle, It arrived! I had a reverse polarity cable and a dedicated power supply ready to go thanks to our correspondence. It’s AMAZING! This is an incredible sounding pedal. Wow, man, it sounds absolutely stellar after the right kind of dirt / fuzz. I’m blown away, thanks SO much! It’s like it makes actual stardust shoot out of your tone, sparkles up whatever you’re using with it. Very best regards, Jeff


    Power Note: 9VDC Reverse polarity positive center or battery.

    Special circuit tuning allows improved Hi-Octave note tracking across the fret board via Neck Pickup with a pronounced Hi-Octave effect that cuts in a band mix with musical authority. (You do not need to play just the 7th or 10th frets or higher for Hi-Octave. You can play full bar chords anywhere.)

    The Hi-Octave Knob setting fluidly and seamlessly blends from 1967/1968’s thinner sharper cleaner yet warmer germanium Fire and Purple Haze like Hi-Octave (NPN/PNP silicon transistors w/matched germanium diodes) to 1969/1970’s increased overdrive, even-order harmonic saturation and more authoritative EQ punch of the Band of Gypsies era that’s never ear piercing. Always retaining a sweet top and haunting mid-range.

     

    Hi-Octave Knob at 11 o’clock is the Goldilocks setting hybrid capturing 1967 to 1970!

     

    Hi Kyle, Thanks so much on the quick delivery of the Purple Stardust…I didn’t expect to get it so quickly! It’s a very interesting pedal that I’m only beginning to get the measure of. In my mind I expected it to be more of a full-on fuzz with octave kind of pedal, like the Univox Super Fuzz, for example. This pedal is different than that – a purer octave effect with ring modulation and fuzz overtones, depending on how it’s set and what pickups you’re using on your guitar. Also, when I play with the treble pickup of a Strat, I get a VERY convincing sitar effect. I didn’t expect that! Our band covers “Hooked on a Feeling,” and I can see this sound coming in handy. As you noted, it really sounds great with the Fuzz Fella. I like it both before the fuzz, where it gives a fuzzy octave effect a la the Super Fuzz, but I REALLY like it AFTER the Fuzz Fella, where it gives this incredibly compressed and sustaining octave fuzz sound. I haven’t tried it into an amp that’s at high volume yet…I have a feeling that may open up an entirely different world. A VERY interesting pedal! Frank

    Hey Kyle! I am loving the purple stardust! Wow! You really captured the essence of the original. It seems maybe a little smoother and less gainy than the old one, which I actually really like. Man the feel under the fingers is so smooth and dynamic. I’m really loving it! As usual I’m going to see how much I can sneak this in to my country gigs without getting kicked off haha! I will definitely send you some clips when I am able. Thanks again for everything Kyle! -Mathew

     

    Extremely low noise design. Never oscillates or sounds overly constricted, gain-y or harsh. Always maintains an open fluid singing Hi-Octave tone.

    The Purple Stardust™ is designed to run straight into an amp for clean to over-driven Hi-Octave tones or EASILY stacks into or after an overdrive or fuzz pedal producing a very unique musical Hi-Octave Overdrive or Fuzz effect. Uniquely compliments the player’s own rig and maintains an extremely dynamic touch response. This makes it an incredibly useful tone tool in a guitarist’s arsenal for both adapting to different rigs while keeping its inherent vibrant exploding tone.

    How does the Purple Stardust™ Hi-Octave compare to vintage 1970s Hi-Octave units?

    In comparison… it’s a unique experience w/primarily being a harmonically rich Hi-Octave with ring modulation and even elusive low octave sounding ghost notes depending upon the pick attack.

    The 70s vintage circuits are a mess with an incorrectly wired Intensity pot, an incorrectly installed Q1 Transistor, and is mis-biased (spec’d for 24volts yet runs on 9volts.) If you are tired of the overly gain-y, noisy and treble-y Octaves, we agree with you and it’s the reason we’ve created the Purple Stardust™ Hi-Octave nearly a decade ago.

    The CHASE TONE® Purple Stardust™ Hi-Octave has negative feedback stages, accurately biased new production, vintage-spec, low noise NPN/PNP transistors, an optimally wired Intensity Control as well as a custom spec taper, altered circuit values and matched germanium diodes for a superior sounding fine-tuned version with amazing touch sensitivity that satisfies and expands a musician’s horizons across the fret board for both improvised rhythm and lead.

    I really love my Purple Stardust. I’ve got a few octave pedals, and it’s is my favorite of the bunch. Joshua

     

    Hey Kyle, The purple stardust is utterly fantastic. Kicked a damn good octavia clone off my board. Something in the mid-range that just inspires me more to phrase differently. Truly special man. Brandon
