i have the mxr bass octave deluxe, just found out about the aguilar. the clean level knob may be something i would be interested in an octave. i love the growl knob on the mxr actave deluxe, i play the pedal with dry knob all the way up nearlly 100% of the time. i play with my gretsch g5123b, do you this the aguilar would be more suited for me? should i stick with the mxr? btw, i have no complaints about the mxr octave.
