    I'm looking for a fuzz/octave pedal where either can be utilized independent of the other. I want to be able to use fuzz with no octave, and vice versa.

    The Fulltone Octafuzz does this with a small 3-position switch. I'm turned off to this model because of its weird positive center power supply requirement, but it might not be a dealbreaker if no other pedal with this feature exists.

    The octafuzz doesn't have octave independent of the fuzz. You either get octave fuzz or just regular fuzz.

    I had an mxr la machine that was great. The mxr submachine does what you want with independent switches as well.

    Holy crap. I didn't know this existed!

    Anybody got $295 that you're looking to donate to a worthy cause?

    I have a Foxx Machine clone with two switches that works like that but I would recomend the Source Audio Kingmaker or any of the other two drives. they all run the same engines.
    The octave fuzz sounds fantastic and you can have two sounds with just one switch: regular and preset mode.
    You can also do a lot more things with it but for a regular fuzz/octave fuzz is great. You'll have to get used to the way you go from off/on to regular/preset mode.
    The Klone machine in that pedal is also great.

    Fulltone also has the Ultimate Octave with footswithable octave.

    You can also get a Tentacle and use it with a fuzz pedal of your choice.
