OKKO DIABLO

Recommended Posts

Hello!

 

I do own an exact copy of it. The Gain+ version.

 

It`s a Tube Screamer, but more flexible - as far as tone adjustments are concerned. TS` tends to lack bottom-end. This one isn`t.

 

Best moderate-gain OD effect I used so far.

 

It is also attack-sensitive. If You pick lightly, cleaner You sound.

 

I can highly recommend it, if You like TS-like OD.

 

Best wishes... Bence

The "Plus" switch activates the second-stage of the effect, which is controlled by the "PLUS" pot, which could be called "LEVEL" as well.

 

When You need some extra volume, press it. It works together with the "LEVEL" pot (of first-stage). If You set the "LEVEL" at - let's say - 75%, then You have to adjust the "PLUS" higher to achieve any effect when it's activated.

 

It give You some extra boost for leads.

Greg is a hell of a player and he uses the OKKO the way it gives you

an enhanced tone and getting the most of the touch sensitifity from

this great pedal.

I got one and it is always on. Can only recommend it!

You beat me to it!

 

Gregor Hilden is a fantastic player from Denmark and he's fairly notable all over Europe. He's done alot of Peter Green tribute work and helps support Blues shows in Denmark all the time...

 

http://www.gregorhilden.de/

 

He's a very talented guitarist and does play that Okko on EVERYTHING!

 

He obviously loves it!

 

He's a guitar seller and buys & sells quality guitars in Denmark & Europe and has exceptional examples of highly sought after guitars and he demos every one of them on YouTube. He has literally hundreds upon hundreds if not thousands of demo vids on YouTube and you could spend days watching them...

I stand corrected...

 

His website is hosted in Denmark... Hence the ".DE" which led to my misconception...

 

Gregor Hilden

Street: Hammer Str. 41 City: Münster Zip-Code:48153 Country: Germany

 

I also think I saw a couple live performances on YouTube in some music festivals in Denmark that also led me to believe that's where he's from...

".DE" - for Deutschland.

I will commit this to my memory for future reference...

The one that continuously got me was .CH Switzerland, not Czech republic. My brother lives in CH which is how I found out.

Yea, the Confoederatio Helvetica thing in Switzerland threw me off when I spent time there.

 

Also, I never understood why country names have langauge translations.

 

So Deutschland is Germany in English or Alemania in Spanish...who translated this stuff?

Sweden - Sverige

Hungary - Magyarország

but the funniest:

 

Republic of Armenia - Հայաստանի Հանրապետություն (Hayastani Hanrapetutyun)

 

(With due respect)

Yes.

 

For example: the sumerians. We call them after their akkadian description. But they called their country kiengyir. They spoke a language, called the amegyir...

 

Or...Hungarians ("hungarus" in medieval latin texts.) Who came up with that silly term? Magyar is the proper name for the people and the country. Huns were one ethnic ingredient of Magyar nations. It's silly to name a bigger entity after a part of it. Other sources called us "turks"...insane!

 

My family name "Toth" comes from the proto-indo-european word "tewteh" (Irish/Gaelic "tauth") which means people. This word is the root of today's - previously mentioned - term "deutsch". It's still used in Hungarian language for describing - guess who - the Slowakians. :D

 

(Sorry)

 

Cheers... Bence
