Soundbites and Recording Notes
Hazy – One of the earliest and most recognizable examples of the original Octavia (AKA Octavio) is the Jimi Hendrix track “Purple Haze.” Hendrix created the track using a Marshall half-stack and the single-coil neck pickup in his Stratocaster. For “Hazy” we’ve recreated the signal path for this classic solo.
