Okay, so I know there are tons of discussions out there about the various Octave effect pedals that are used by Bass players. Maybe the information I am looking for is already there. I have responded to threads started by others, tried several different pedals first hand, and have come to a basic understanding of what I am seeking, but would appreciate a little input from the community. First consideration, I play active Basses, and what I have experienced is that some octave effect pedals distort sound when used with my Basses. Most recently I have tried a Boss OC2 and a Cog TC16, and the only way I could get a good sound was to go passive. I own a Foxrox Octron, which works well with my active Basses, however I enjoy using that pedal in conjunction with my distortion effect. So what octave effect pedals out there will work well with active Basses? I am considering an MXR Bass Octave, however I just read a recent review of a youtube demo where someone mentioned that they returned their's due to it not sounding good with their active Bass. It seems manufactures don't even want to address this issue? I would think some kind of adjustable input would remedy the problem, but what do I know?
