no... a octave pedal will not make it sound like a violin. it'll make it sound remarkably like a octaved guitar.

the difference between a guitars tone and a violins tone is mostly the method the strings are brought to produce sound. the guitar strings are plucked, the violin strings are drawn with a bow, barring pizzicato. there is a device called the ebow that supposedly produces a violin sound with your guitar by magnetically vibrating the strings by holding it over the string, creating the rising attack and infinite sustain of a violin; never used it, can't vouch for it.

paul gilbert, on one song, can't remember which one, strung his guitar with one string at a time, and used a bow to play the strings role, and did that six times to get the right tone on his guitar. now, if paul gilbert had to resort to such tedious measures, i doubt there is really a way to easily pull it off. but what you would be looking for is infinite, non decaying sustain, and a flat, smooth attack, akin to a bow moving across a string. i can't really tell you how to do it, i don't know how, never tried or heard anything like it.

now, when i link two metal muffs together, and dime everything, i get pretty much infinite sustain that has almost a effect like that, but it obviously does not sound like a violin.

Certain types of delay pedal contain a reverse guitar effect, is that what you mean? It's sounds a bit like a violin, and "violining" on a guitar is when you play a note with the volume control on 0 and gradually increase the volume while the note sustains, which is basically what the pedal does.

There's a little thing called the eBow, it's kinda like a violin bow, but you move a laser sensor thing over your strings to make noise. Haven't tried it out, but most people say it sounds very digital or more like a synth.

There's also some synth pedals that I think Roland makes that can imitate loads of sounds. They're very, very expensive though.

I've always wanted to learn how to play a bowed instrument. If I ever have a lot of free time during any point of my adult life that's what I'll do.
