A boost, or a transposed bass
Parrotica, 14.11.2020
The pedal is built solid, the knobs are great and all, but I happen to use it as a boost or a mild "natural overdrive". The reason why is because the bass options sound like a transposed guitar in any DAW. The pedal shines the most when the sub octaves are used *the lowest one* up to 1/3 and the other up to half. Like it a lot, just was not expecting to use it as I do.

Good affordable octaver
RangsdorfGuessWho, 02.08.2018
I use this pedal with electric guitar and bass. I think it would also work great with mono synthesizers. I have years of experience as producer/engineer as well as instrumentalist. Now I work in the MI branch. (No affiliation with this brand)

For me, this octaver is best for bass. Adding a compressor pedal before it boosts its note-tracking performance. It can make synth-like bass with the dry tone set to zero, or set the dry tone to unity gain, then dail in a subtle octave for thundering presence. The stop response time is tight enough to avoid sounding like mud.

How well this pedal works depends on the signal it gets. (True for all octavers like this) With the right kind of guitar/bass, it sounds awesome, for example strat or p-/j-bass. A different type of bass I use which already has a solid, explosive low-end and precise treble doesn't profit much from the sub octave - it doesn't complement the tone. In any case with a compressor before it, you can get better performance by tuning the level characteristics of different instruments so the octaver can work at its sweet spot.

I would improve the design of this pedal with a toggle switch to an alternate sub-tone more suited to some instruments or other sonic textures. How about a clipping waveform? (Less low-end, similar perceived "depth" thanks to low-mid harmonic content)

Very nice pedal
Aleksej79ns, 21.10.2020
Very nice pedal, great sound, very good built. Simple to use, You can dial in many different sounds...

Only flaw is connector for the power supply. Not every jack will work and make contact with the connector.

Great for bass
Seg@fredo, 07.01.2020
I use this pedal mainly for bass and it does the job very good. But i found it works well with guitar too.
It behaves like an analog octaver should and i don't have any real problems with tracking.
On the lower bass strings it gets a bit glitchy but thats common with analog octavers, even the much more expensive ones.

I previously owned an EBS octabass which had some added tone-features but just one octave below the dry signal
In comparison (as far as i can remember) the tracking is about similar

Everything looks solid and it's a well built pedal
The footswitch however, doesn't have a 'click' or a lot of resistance while pressing. The specs say it has true bypass so the switch is probably not one of those heavy, sturdy footswitches i/m used to in other pedals. However, it hasn't failed me yet

I like this pedal in combination with an envelope filter (Auto Wah) and a bit of drive for some synthy funky bass vibes
For the price it exceeded my expectations. If you want to explore the use of an octaver or just want a simple octaver in your arsenal, i definitely recommend this guy!
