Tychobrahe Octavia- yes, the one JIMI used
  (not this Actual one..umm..) this pedal is a tone ripper
  almost to hot to use without a stadium to play into.
  so I added an input volume (gain if you will), which 
  calms things down alot, making it suitable for some
  under-water-y sonic ring mod-ish kind of sounds. 
  I have definitely heard this sound in drone / 
  background / trip out sections of sonic youth, etc....
    Also, some added capacitors make this bit less
    'shred and spit out my speaker cones', but they are
   on a switch, in the event that one needs to make 'em
    earn they keep. (whatever that means to you)
