The M288 Bass Octave Deluxe is a dual-voice octave pedal that offers analog tone, true bypass, and a variety of tonal options. MXR's 18 volt Constant Headroom Technology™ provides high headroom and superior tracking. Use the Dry knob to mix in your direct signal, and hit the Mid+ switch to add up to +14dB of internally adjustable mid frequencies (400Hz or 850Hz). Finally, mix in two separately controlled octave voices—Growl (for throaty tone) and Girth (for deep tone).

The Bass Octave Deluxe offers two independent analog sub-octave voices with a Dry control and a Mid+ switch to optimize the sound of your parallel clean signal.

This pedal can be powered by a 9-volt battery, a Dunlop ECB003 9-volt adapter, or the DC Brick™, Iso-Brick™, and Mini Iso-Brick™ power supplies (not included).

Great Octave Pedal

By: on 22 April 2017
Two distinct voicings with three volume controls: one for each octave-down voice and the third for your dry signal. Can be applied gently to fill out your sound with a bit of subtlety, or strongly for a full-bodied synthy bass sound. Tracks quickly and precisely within working range. Starts breaking up as you get down close to low E, so on 5-string bass don't expect this pedal to give you an octave below your low B string. Sound also tends to break up semi-randomly if you play multiple notes at once ... which can actually give a nice effect in some situations. For some songs, I prefer the sound of playing an octave higher on my fretboard and using this pedal to drop the pitch back down. Also works great with a bit of fuzz on the input side, and an MXR Bass Envelope Filter pedal is a great downstream addition - but of course it depends on the song (sometime less is more). The nice thick voice instantly turns some boring-bassline songs into solid rockin' goodness. The mid-boost option is also great, and gives you the option of some extra cut-through for spots in a song where you want to stand out a bit. The mid-boost switch needs a finger press, unfortunately - your foot's not going to get to it. If you're a bass player starting to wonder about getting into pedals, I'd recommend the MXR Bass Octave Deluxe as a GREAT STARTING POINT. Of all my pedals, THIS IS THE ONE I USE THE MOST.
