    Ibanez 9 Series TS9B Bass Tube Screamer Overdrive or Boss Super Octave OC? So stuck.. :bag: Either way I can't go wrong. I already have a chorus pedal, wah, delay, and looper with a Geddy Lee jazz bass and ampeg amp.. which one?

    I'd get an overdrive before an octave pedal but it's cool to have both.

    I think a good OD would come in handy in more situations than an octaver.

    Overdrive. Octavers are cool, but they are gadgets. I had one, and after the initial honeymoon was over, I never used it again.

    OP, you might get more feedback from your post if you a) moved it over to the effects forum, and b) gave some more specifics as to what you are trying to accomplish with the pedals. I personally have both dirt and an octaver on my board, and they are probably the two most used pedals I have (save for my always on compressor).
