Pedals And Effects has brought you a Sub Wars before but these pedals, though similar, are mainly octave pedals so we dubbed this installment Sub Octave Wars! Please be aware that the low end coming through your speakers may rattle your speakers off their stands!
Janek Gwizdala has come through 5Starr Sound Labs for Pedals And Effects Fuzz Wars but he and I have always wanted to shoot a video for our favorite Boss OC-2. I first came across the OC-2 in the early 80’s. My bass teacher, Steve Evans, was playing with Brian Auger and he went into a bass solo and once he jumped on the OC-2, I was sold and bought one a week later and even used it in Racer X. It is still the most musical octave pedal out there for bassists.
I have been endorsing MXR since my days in Racer X and they have been a company that I came up with, so to speak. MXR made the first phaser I ever used, the MXR Phase 100 and they have always created effects that sound great for bass. The Bass Octave Deluxe is just as innovative as any of their pedals because it is not only an octave pedal, it also pushes the sub octave via some sub harmonic component. This pedal will compete with the DOD Meatbox, though I will say, it tracks way better than that one.
All of these pedals and more, are available now on Reverb.com
