La Scatola Nera is another collaboration with Ben McLeod, the guitar player in "All Them Witches." Ben wanted something new for their current tour so we came up with a modified muff circuit with an octave up.

While opening up for Mastodon, Brent Hinds heard the pedal and had to have one for their current tour.

The best way to get the most out of an octave up is to use the neck pick-up. Since the neck pick-up gives you a darker sound the muff side has been modified so your lead tones cut through the mix.

The tone section has been designed to have a lot of mids and the sweep of the tone control has been changed so you can use it to brighten up the neck pick-up tone and keep the bridge pick-up nice and warm.
The pedal also has a good amount of gain that works perfectly with the octave for a lot of harmonically-rich, sustaining notes.
