Interesting but somewhat trashy effect
Biggs 25.06.2013
I ordered an octave effect because I thought it could round out my sound; I do a solo performance thing with a loop pedal, and I thought I could add some bass.
Feeling adventurous, I ordered the Mooer exactly because no one had rated it yet.

Out of the box, it's a sturdy, good-looking piece of metal. The three black knobs seem a tad flimsy and and hard to read, also you might have difficulty twisting them if you have fat fingers like my friend Stephan does. But so far, so good.

As for the performance, there is a slight latency when turned completely wet. Also, the pitches didn't sound to me like pure octaves: they where distinctly detuned octaves. There is also a noticeable drop in sound volume. I was mostly surprised by the detuning because I'd listened to a few demos on YouTube and there it sounded much better. My fat-fingered friend Stephan was of the opinion that how this pedal performed was par for the octaver-pedal-course, so it is possible that my criticism is unjustifiably based on unrealistic expectations.

I could find a use in my act for this pedal because I do make some weird jive too, but it's not really what I had expected.

I'm still on the fence. I've only gigged out with it once and so I hope to find more time to try it out before the thirty days are up so I can decide whether to keep it or send it back, and whether at all to try a different octave pedal.

Bad sound overall
IrishCian 22.11.2017
Used this for about six months before selling it on - the lows are completely lost and do not remain clear while the highs are piercing and not warm.
I intended to use this as part of an acoustic two person band to emulate bass sounds and it is terrible for this purpose - the bass frequencies are unnatural and weak. The build quality is good and that's about it.

this little beasty can let my bass sound like royal blood, white stripes, and many more with one flick of the switch (try and combine it with the behringer superfuzz on the 2nd settin for some beefey tones!)

Octave with questionable function
Hans7359 12.03.2015
The sound is not true octaves. It is out of tune and not really usable for anything. I have used the octavior in a Vox VT80+ and expected this to be as clean and exact. It is not. The low is out of tune and so are the highs. It is not really useable at all. You get the sound of an accordion out of tune. Fairly limited effect. The mechanics is ok and so is the handling but given it's functionality it does not help.
