I recently added the Bass Octave Deluxe to my arsenal, mostly to accentuate the feel of my Boss SYB-5 but for certain verses with the band as well.
I feel, however, the frequency that this thing pumps is too much for my amp?
We play in Dropped Bb (Bb, F, Bb, Eb), my rig is an Ampeg SVT-7 Pro and an SVT-810E.
Pedal chain is (I believe in this order), TU-3, SYB-5, Octave Deluxe, DD-5, ODB-3, CEB-3, back to head.
Basically, when I engage the octave on the 2nd string, it sounds about proper to an open 4th. However, on the open 4th, the sound seems to drop maybe 1.5-2 steps for about a half second then returns to the natural tone...
I turned the compressor down a bit and the speakers yelled at me
Any suggestions? Bunk pedal perhaps?
