Next-generation BOSS octave pedal with vintage and polyphonic modes, lightning-fast tracking, and extended range.

By combining the iconic BOSS octave tones with state-of-the-art tracking technologies, the BOSS OC-5 establishes a new benchmark in the realm of octave pedals. Its Vintage mode impeccably replicates the renowned mono OC-2 from 1982, while its Poly mode presents various upgrades for playing in extended ranges. Additionally, the inclusion of an octave-up feature extends the tonal possibilities to three octaves for innovative experimentation. From rich, resonant mono tones to chord progressions with octave-shifted notes and more, the OC-5 sets a new standard of excellence by delivering the broadest tonal range, highest sound quality, and most superior playability in any octave effect pedal produced to date.
