Just like the original, the Purple Platypus Octidrive MkII combines the burly, buttery tones and amp-clobbering gain of the Red Llama(TM) Overdrive with a frequency doubler that creates an octave-up effect. Unlike most octave-up pedals, though, this amphibious stompbox cleans up nicely - you can take it from eerie ring modulator style effects to downright massive octave fuzz. In addition to the original Volume and Drive controls, the MkII comes with a Hi-Cut control so that you can shape and season the sonic wizardry to your own taste. Want to sound like a sitar? Just switch to your bridge pickup and pluck away at your strings right where they come off your bridge. Dynamic and touch-sensitive, the Purple Platypus Octidriver MkII is packed with symphonic potential.

More overdrive than fuzz, which makes sense considering that the Purple Platypus (MkII) is a 20th Anniversary Red Llama with an octave-up effect, but it can still get fuzzy when the Drive is cranked. Very smooth-sounding and easy to control or let loose into noisy abandon, this is a great pedal on its own or running into something like the Way Huge Green Rhino.
