The Boss OC-5 Octave Pedal builds on BOSS’s outstanding reputation for building world-beating Octave Pedals, cemented by the original OC-2 from the ‘80s. This latest OC-5 version includes the best of the original in its Vintage Mode, while adding a new Poly Mode for chord playing. A Mode Switch optimises performance for either guitar or bass, and a Direct Out allows for wet/dry setups.

The BOSS OC-5 Octave Pedal is now available from Merchant City Music, the longest-established guitar specialist in Glasgow. We ship fast and secure to the UK, Europe and worldwide.

BOSS OC-5 Octave Compact Pedal

Fusing classic BOSS octave tones with the latest tracking technologies, the BOSS OC5 sets a new standard in octave pedal performance. Vintage mode provides a spot-on recreation of the legendary mono OC-2 from 1982, while Poly mode offers numerous enhancements for extended-range playing. And with the addition of an octave-up feature, a span of three octaves is now available for creative exploration. From fat, low mono sounds to octave-shifted chords and more, the OC-5 delivers the outstanding range, amazing sound quality, and great playability.
