The New Standard in Octave Pedals

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

Fusing classic BOSS octave tones with the latest tracking technologies, the BOSS OC-5 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 widest range, finest sound quality, and best playability in any octave stomp to date.

 
 

FEATURES

  • The industry-standard octave pedal, updated with enhanced features
  • Newly developed tracking technology provides more accurate response and natural feel with no latency
  • Vintage mode faithfully reproduces the mono sound of the original OC-2
  • Poly mode for chord playing; Range knob sets the note range where the effect is applied
  • Lowest Range setting in Poly mode applies the octave effect to only the lowest note in a chord
  • New octave-up effect, available on its own or blended with octave-down effects
  • Mode switch optimizes the sound engine for guitar or bass
  • Direct out for wet/dry setups
  • BOSS five-year warranty

 

High-Octane Octave Performance

Powered by the latest real-time processing technologies from BOSS, the OC-5 provides exceptional sound and playability for the most expressive octave experience ever. A key feature is the newly developed tracking engine, which delivers clean, accurate performance with no latency. The OC-5 also offers wider range and greater polyphonic capabilities than previous OC models, covering all your octave needs in one high-performance pedal.       

 

Classic Tones with Vintage Mode

Introduced in 1982, the OC-2 was the world’s first modern octave pedal for guitar and bass. Still loved by players everywhere, the stomp’s warm-yet-present tone sits perfectly in a mix, and its characteristic voice can be heard in many famous songs. The OC-5’s Vintage mode brings you the OC-2’s iconic mono sound, coupled with improved response thanks to the new tracking engine. Dedicated level controls are provided for -1 and -2 octave effects and the direct sound, giving you quick access to an endless variety of sub-octave colors.  

 

Enhanced Poly Mode

The OC-5 also features an evolved version of the smart Poly mode first introduced with the OC-3 Super Octave, letting you play full chords with octave effects. The variable Range knob restricts the effect to the lower notes on your instrument, perfect for playing octave bass lines alongside normal chords and melodies in the higher registers. And with the new tracking refinements, it’s even possible to isolate the octave effect to the bottom note in a chord—just turn the Range knob to the “Lowest” setting.

 

Extended Range with Octave Up

Another cool OC-5 enhancement is the new octave-up effect, which is available in both Vintage and Poly modes. Simply twist the dedicated +1 OCT knob to bring in the desired effect level. Use the octave-up effect on its own for faux 12-string sounds and unique solo tones, or blend it with the octave-down effects for extended chord voicings and super-fat leads.

 

Guitar/Bass Switch and Direct Out

The OC-5 lets you instantly optimize the performance of its tracking engine for either guitar or bass via a dedicated switch on the body of the pedal. And with the Direct Out jack, it’s easy to route dry and effect sounds to different destinations, such as two stage amps or discrete channels on a mixer or audio interface.

    • 100% Parts and Labor Coverage
    • Includes Accidental Damage
    • Includes Free Shipping
    • Up to 5 Years of Total Coverage

    Bananas has partnered with Consumer Priority Service (CPS) to offer extended warranties for your instruments. Simply add the CPS extended warranty by selecting the option on our product pages.

    Warranty FAQ

    DO I NEED AN EXTENDED WARRANTY?

    Most manufacturers limit their warranty periods to keep their product costs competitive. It should come as no surprise that most problems occur after the manufacturer’s warranty is over. If you are like most consumers, you don't want to deal with the inevitable problems surrounding repairs. Who do you call for service? Are they reliable? Is a handyman capable of performing a long lasting, reliable repair on your instrument?

    Ranked #1 Extended Warranty

    CPS provides top notch warranty protection for your purchases to ensure life and longevity. This means that they care about you and your product long after your purchase has been made. This warranty offers reliable, hassle-free, comprehensive parts and labor protection for your product.

    You Need to Prepare for These Issues Today

    Bananas is an Authorized Consumer Priority Service Dealer. This means that they care about you and your products long after the purchase date. You can easily extend your manufacturer's warranty for a possible total of 5 years from the date of purchase.

    CPS Warranties Offer Reliable Protection for Your Product

    By purchasing a CPS accidental damage plan, you’re guaranteed years of worry free operation from your new product.

    Is a CPS Warranty just an extension of the existing manufacturer’s warranty?

    Actually, it’s an upgrade to your existing manufacturer’s warranty. A CPS Warranty offers benefits that aren’t offered by manufacturers like accidental damage & free shipping to and from the repair facility.

    What’s the difference between a Replacement Plan and Repair Plan?

    A Replacement Plan is available for products under $150. If the product fails, you will receive a replacement through Bananas.

    A Repair Plan is for products over $150 and offers free repair coverage for your product any time during the life of your warranty. If we can’t fix it, we’ll replace it!

    How am I covered?

    For the Replacement Plan, your coverage provides for a one-time replacement of the covered product.

    For the Repair Plan, you are covered for a period of up to five years (depending on which plan you purchase). Benefits include parts and labor for required repairs on your product.

    When does my warranty coverage start?

    Coverage begins on the 31st calendar day from when you purchased your product.

    Can I transfer the Protection Plan to a new owner?

    Yes! CPS Warranties are transferable between owners.

    What if I Need to Return my Product?

    If you return your product, Bananas returns the money you paid for the product protection plan. Depending on how much time has passed since your purchase, CPS may issue a prorated refund.

    Is my product covered if it’s stolen or if I lose it?

    Unfortunately the CPS Warranty does not cover lost or stolen products.

    Is there a service fee?

    Zero dollar service fee for the Replacement Plans and the Repair Plans.

    HOW DO I FILE A CLAIM?
