The MXR Vintage Bass Octave upgrades the warm analog sub-bass vibes of a classic circuit with superior tracking, cleaner headroom, and the versatility that modern players demand. This pedal delivers an impressive range of smooth, musical sounds—from a tone-thickening growl to chest-rumbling dub tones—all in the space-saving MXR mini housing.
The voice of the Vintage Bass Octave is rich and throaty, and it comes in two forms—one octave down and two octaves down. Each can be dialed in separately with the Oct 1 and Oct 2 volume controls, and with a Dry volume control to dial in your clean signal, you can concoct just the right blend for your rig. For extra clarity and definition, use the Mid switch to boost your clean signal’s midrange at an internally adjustable frequency—400k or 800k, up to +15dB—of your clean signal. Finally, this pedal comes equipped with Constant Headroom Technology™, a custom circuit that provides clean, crystal clear headroom by producing 18-volts from a...
It's that time of year again!
Event: Winter Build off 2019
Dates: December 22nd 2018 thru March 20th 2019
For this year’s build off, we will be venturing into the world of Mash-Up
So, what is a Mash-up and how does it apply to this build off?
- A Mash-up is something created by combining elements from two or more sources.
- Caveat: The electronic signal path cannot be considered one of your elements (Pups/Tone Controls/Preamp)
- The "Pile of wood" rule is what we’ll use to define the start of a build. The “Pile of Wood” rule allows you to prepare your wood to the point to where it is dimensioned. Billets, neck blanks, matched tops, stringers, thin laminates, finger boards etc. are all considered to be dimensioned.
- CAUTION: DO NOT cut or glue your dimensioned wood until the build off starts.
- EDIT: Minimum diameter for lowest pitch string is .084"
I'm putting this notice out here prior to the start so people have ample time to look...
