Which Is Better: Octave UP or Octave DOWN? (Feat. Jen Majura of EVANESCENCE)

At this year’s Thomann Gearhead University, Trey met up with EVANESCENCE guitarist Jen Majura to compare using an octave UP vs. an octave DOWN effect for the guitar. Both effects have their place in a guitarist’s arsenal, but sometimes one is better than the other, and Jen and Trey have teamed up to find out if it’s better to play a part an octave up and pitch it down, or vice-versa. Check it!
