The 0415 Guitar Synth V.2 is a fun a simple pedal that transforms the signal into a square wave, up to five octaves apart: one or two octaves up can be mixed with one or two octaves down for super synthy sounds.

Since this circuit is based around a PLL VCO, it doesn't scramble chords like octave up fuzzes normally do, and it tracks well over the entire fretboard. Single note playing still works best to avoid ?octave jumping? but simple chords can sound really cool.

This circuit works best with high output pickups (although I had decent results with single coils aswell). It is a gated circuit by nature of the schmitt trigger that turns the signal into a squarewave. If you are using single coils and need more sustain, try a boost or compressor in front. To improve the octave tracking, use your neck pickup with the tone rolled off.

Nice and easy project to build. The pedal itself is awesome and will be a joy for a long time to come. A versatile scale of sounds for a rainy day to explore. Combined with other pedals, it produces extreme noise.
