  • This thing is just amazing. I couldn't use it for months due to not having the right adapter to power it (battery power doesnt work on mine). Once I got it going I sure am glad I bought it. It gave me the most crushing sounds i've ever gotten out of my set up. I love this thing to death and would certainly recommend it to anyone. My favorite pedal in my setup.
  • Good Points: - Huge sound - Wide range of sounds - Very well made - Pedal is very sensitive so I don't have to slam my hand on it to trigger it unlike say a Metal Muff
  • Bad Points: - I can't think of one.
  • Price Paid: US$30.00

  • Pretty much what everyone else said. I've gotten some nice droney sounds with just the octave on, but it's not that loud: add a booster and maybe an eq or some such and WHAMMO! nice rumbledronepuke. Otherwise this things just thickens your signal. Adds some interesting texture in a feedback loop.
  • Good Points: - add interesting if somewhat subtle textures to feedback loops - obvious DOD stuff
  • Bad Points: - tone is useless outside of a loop - octave only is too quiet - usually pretty cheap - obvious DOD stuff

  • Y'know alot of people are making comments about it being only one octave below, and don't get me wrong it is but for the price it is the best octave pedal you can get...most other octave pedals that go lower are fuzz combos or go for $100 used, and i'll repeat that last part...used. sometimes people are lucky and find a decent used one but not likely. plus i usually have a big muff run into it and run the signal out to a meatbox, and it doesn't matter. you start to get bass you cannot here but only feel...
  • Good Points: cheap! solid dod metal box best one octave pedal you'll find
  • Bad Points: usual dod switch complaints...

  • Pretty good octave pedal. Granted, it only has one octave down, but it does the job nicely. The tone control doesn't seem to offer much variety in sound. You dial in the amount of octave down signal with the octave knob, and amount of the direct signal with the direct level knob..super easy. creates a really weird whiny oscillation in a loop with the octave signal off. you can get some good clicking with the octave control up. this thing was cheap! so i'd reccomend picking it up.
  • Good Points: built like a tank, sounds good and super cheap! seriously.
  • Bad Points: not very much variety, tone knob doesn't do much.

  • cheap pedal, good for experimenting with, needs to be combined with other pedals for interesting sounds.
  • Good Points: Cheap! makes for interesting sounds when driven hard with a heavy distortion combined with delay and twiddling of the direct level. add an envelope filter and you get very spaced out even synth like percussive sounds.
  • Bad Points: battery cover gets lost easily.

  • i bought this because it was cheap but i then found out how useless this pedal was. it did thicken the signal but that isnt always good. one octave, barely noticable though. the tone knob does nothing.
  • Good Points: can give you some nice rumbling...
  • Bad Points: pretty much everything else

  • A decent octave pedal. Doesn't add much for noise applications, but shines better using a guitar, like it's intended use. I owned one a while ago and eventually gave it to my brother, who plays guitar. He's gotten more use out of it than I ever would. I'd rather play with the sub freq found on the Digitech Bass Synth Wah. And Boss makes a pedal that does 2 octaves, but at a price. So, in short, a decent overall pedal and cheap enough to purchase and experiment. But you may find little use for it.
  • Good Points: solid DOD construction, adjustable tone,octave level, and blend, cheaper than the BOSS octave unit, I think you can still find these around
  • Bad Points: doesn't really add to noise music

  • one octave is okay. should have either dumped the tone knob, or made this a four control pedal. unfrotunately whats done is done, and this thing ends up getting less use than the danelectro mini octave pedal i have...
  • Good Points: solid dod...
  • Bad Points: only one octave, which will fatten up your sound, but not with any great effect like the danelectro...

  • Only gives you one octave lower to play with, also allows you to mix the original signal in with the octave signal. Only thing it does is like what the previous poster says, it thickens the signal.
  • Good Points: Thickens the signal, thats about it really.
  • Bad Points: I have yet found a useful spot for this in my effects chain, it spends more time collecting dust than anything right now.

  • adequate addition of a tone one octave below the original. i prefer the BOSS model that i tried, simply for the fact that the BOSS model gives 1 AND 2 octaves down, while this just generates one down and passes the original signal. can certainly fatten up contact mics and other things you might not expect.
