Amazing Tracking!!!!

Yeah... So, coming from a vintage boss world, I decided to give this a try cause the the rave reviews... And well, YES!!! Blown away!!! What I found amazing about it is that it will track bass notes, and sustain those bass notes for a very long time. Even as the original vibrations from the bass decay. I was able to mimic keyboard bass tones in a sensitive ballad. That was something I was never able to do with my old Oh See Two. It will even track notes when placed AFTER distortion and an Envelope filter...

Best Octave I've found in 30 yrs. Huge bass - dual toned!

Best octave I've used in 30 yrs of playing bass. Beets Digitech (pedal & rack effect), Boss, & Ashdown. I've owned octaves by all these companies & was disappointed by all of them, They all had poor tracking & week tone at best. MXR M288 shines through with fast tracking (even low notes) & has great tone. It's actually dual voiced with a nice rock growl tone & a super deep Girth. Even has a mid voice (adjustable pitch switches within) that mixes nicely with ypur dry signal. No flakey or hesitant tracking. Hits true to pitch every note!

This one packs a mean punch!

Don't let the lightweight of this pedal fool you....this octaver packs a mean punch! After a quick set up by setting all controls to 12 O'Clock and engaging the MId + switch, the power and clarity was such that I had to adjust my amp's EQ on the fly!!! Buy it, you won't regret it! As usual Nick Church had me up and running within 2 days! Thanks Nick and Sweetwater!
