    The Subharmonic on the old ABM Klystrom range was surprisingly good.

    I assume all Ashdown pedals are made in China?

    I'm pretty keen for a try on the Triple Shot OD and the Guy Pratt Compressor.

    At $170NZ for the SUBharmonic pedal I should probably just take the plunge.

    I have an OC2 and an ashdown ABM head. I cannot tell a difference between the two octaves. so I would bet this pedal is pulled from the ABM amp, and would be a great OC2 alternative.

    Righto, cheers. This will probably prompt me into purchase mode.

    Might the octave be a repackaged Dr. green octadose?

    Well it’s arrived

    Good news - sounds great a really like it and with the Wounded Paw Battering Ram fuzz after it .....well it’s a righteous tone

    Bad news- the Pedal adds hum to the circuit. So I will send it back. Active or Passive Bass same deal. Annoying

    So through the Ashdown Klystrom 400 front =hum or like tone pot maxed hiss

    Through the effects loop of the Ashdown CTM-300 no signal noise. Same through the front of the “low input”

    Beyond my comprehension how such things (or not) happen.

    Anyway tonight’s chore is to play around with the pedal board sequence

    No question the SubHarmonic Pedal works “better” through the Effects Loop of both the ABM and CTM

    I think it prefers Passive rather than Active instruments.

    Like a lot of Ashdown gear it’s a bit quirky but I like it.

    Curious about the double shot.

    As it stands, I have too many drives already.
