MXR Bass Octave Deluxe and Stingray problem
Here's a new problem I'm running into. I run an MXR BOD frequently on my board. It's either first in the chain, or immediately after a little EQ (taking sub-lows at around 30hz out) and compression. I use it sparingly, usually to cheat a low B on a 4 string and have had great success in the past doing so with a passive Jazz and Precision.
Recently I acquired a Stingray, and it's my new go-to. The problem is, my tracking goes to complete and utter.... poo... when using the stingray. It glitches immediately on the initial attack and then almost "decays" into the octave sound. This is totally unusable, and I can't seem to figure out how to fix it. I've moved it around on the pedalboard, tried it solo, played with the EQ on the Stingray (usually left completely flat) with little to no luck. The closest solution I've had has been completely removing the mids on the Stingray's preamp, but it's still not quite right.
I've read lots of posts about people loving the BOD/Stingray combo, but mine seems to suck.
So great minds of TB... whacha think? Thanks in advance for the help!
