Product Description

The Carl Martin Octa-Switch II adds two assignable outputs to do your amp's channel switching and a bypass switch so you don't have to assign a null bank for a bypass. You still get the eight individual loops with all true-bypass gold relays connected to each of 8 banks via the worlds simplest and smallest DIP switches located over top of each foot switch. Simply turn the DIP switch on for each of the effects you want in Bank 1 and then Bank 2 etc., up to Bank 8. You can use one or all of the effects in each bank. The Carl Martin Octa-switch is mono in and mono/stereo out with a choice of a buffered signal or true bypass. The unit is powered by dual 9v batteries or a regulated power supply like the Carl Martin Power Jack and is housed in an all metal case for road worthy support.

zZounds is an authorized dealer of Carl Martin products.

Customer Reviews
3.5 out of 5 (4 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Octa switch II"
Overall: Excellent switch that does exactly what it is supposed to do. It keeps all my pedals from making any pop sound and the buffer option is perfect. Placing the Octa Switch II in bypass mode is great too. Straight to the amp with no noticeable tone loss. Very pleased with this product.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Cool idea, if it worked"
Overall: First off, I wanted this thing, bad. It's a great concept and is a good value, but I can honestly say do not buy this thing. It arrived fast thanks to Zzounds but it came with some faulty dip-switches which are used to select which loops get actived when you switch on a bank. Some of the switches simply wouldn't turn on a bank and would short out if you touched them even slightly. I made a video about this on YouTube if you want to search Octa-Switch issues. The other problem is if you setup this to split loops into the front of your amp and then some into your FX loop you get insane volume drop and tone loss when selecting the bypass option. I sent it back thinking it was just a dud, new one arrived in like 3 days thanks to Zzounds, but once again same exact issues. I cannot recommed this unit to anyone. Shame on Carl Martin for having these units produced in China, they pretty much lost a customer for life. As a side note though, Zzounds is really easy to work with and I would recommend them to anyone, exchanging my first unit was painless and they shipped out my replacement as soon as they saw I had dropped off the first one at UPS. I don't expect any issues getting a full refund for my second unit.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
