    Pros
    • + - Built like a tank; - Great tone; - Easy operation.
    Cons
    • - - Not true bypass like all other Boss pedals
    I have a pedal of the first generation OC-2 OCTAVER. Besides octaver, you get a synth tone suppressing the direct level.

    Pros
    • + Classic sounds
    Cons
    • - Poor tracking and distortion with hot pick-ups.
    This pedal did not work for me. My pick-ups are hot Dimarzio Pbass pick-ups that made the pedal distort and track poorly. I will stick with my DOD Octoplus that sounds and tracks much better with my bass.
    Price Paid:
    $95

    • + warm
    This is a really good octave pedal. I have had it for a few months and it sounds really good. I prefer it over the oc3 because it sounds a lot warmer and more natural

    Pros
    • + Rock solid build quality, great tone
    Cons
    • - tracking isn't perfect
    Maybe it's because it was the first, but this is the tone that you think of when you think "bass octave pedal". Used by Tony Levin on "So" and by Pino Palladino with fretless, this pedal's tone is locked into history as "the tone". Downsides? You have to watch you're playing technique because it will glitch. But the tone is so good that you live with the potential for glitches and just enjoy the sub octave beauty.
