MXR M288 Bass Octave Deluxe

Effect Pedal for Electric Bass

The pedals of the company MXR are a hit since more than 30 years and alongside classics such as Distortion +, Phase 90, Flanger and Dynacomp, Octavers were always on the top of the MXR-charts.

The MXR M288 Bass Octave Deluxe is just the thing for bassists who like experimenting with their sounds. Not only is it possibility to continuously add a lower octave, you can specifically influence the sound quality of it as well.

The Growl knob brings offerc central growling and enhances the sound realism and definition. The Girth controller provides depth to the sound. An experiment: Turning the knob all the way down and the Girth up in exchange, it sounds pretty 80s Bass Synth Style - Give it a try! - Octave sound tailored!

The best bass octave I've tried
09.06.2016
I use this pedal through a SansAmp Bass Driver DI using a MusicMan Sub 4. It sounds absolutely incredible and really fattens up the sound during chorus' and solos! (Yes, I know, bass solos.)

When I first got the pedal, it felt really really light without the battery in (does not come with one), I use it with a 9v supply and it creates no noise. Despite this, it fits perfectly on my board and the button is extremely solid.

The tracking on this is great and sustains until the note doesn't play anymore without fluctuating at all! I have found that it stops tracking at around the Bb played on the A string, but if you play it on the 6th fret of the E string, it'll play fine.

The only other note I'd add is to be weary of the girth, there is a lot of girth if you need it.

Lovely Growling pedal
15.07.2015
I originally got this pedal as a replacement for the octave effect on an old Ashdown head that I don't use anymore. It turns out that this pedal delivers a far more aggressive and growling octave sound than the Ashdown's warmer sound.

I love this pedal and there is a great number of sound options that you can get from it. The mid button is a great feature and really helps your sound to cut through the mix when you need it to. You can get a great sound from the pedal by winding down the dry control and you get a really deep moog type bass sound which is great to but in some kinds of dance music.

A good solid case with a pretty purple/blue sparkle finish.

Highly recommended pedal.
