    I sold my MXR M288 Bass Octave about 2 years ago, and I'm kinda missing it.

    Seems like there is nothing new out on Octave pedals since I sold mine. Just the usual suspects.. MXR, Aguilar and EBS.

    Anyone know of a new Octave pedal coming out at NAMM? I guess an Octave pedal is a pretty simple device, but I would think there would be something new and cool out in the last couple of years.

    I didn't think the OP made much sense until I saw the SubT suggestion, but even then I still don't totally think it makes much sense. I don't see what could be new in octave effects at this point. The SubT is sort of cheating since a pure octave is only part of it.

    A small digital Octaver that could say do the pitch shifting that the Line6 M series does in the size of that Subt. I would buy said pedal immediately.

    Yeah, the SubT and GD2 are cool, but I'm just interested in the Octave. I'm not big on Synth effects and Bass, so getting one of these pedals for me would be overkill.

    What about the POG2 or Foxrox Octaver? Or do you just need octave down?

    I gotcha. This is new to the crave world, but I see what you're looking for. It's got a pretty awesome octave down sound just so you know. And you can adjust the internal controls to find your sound. I've been tweaking it and getting some great results to supplement my Boss OC-2 & Pearl Octaver (might even replace it).

    Expensive? Yes, but worth every penny IMHO.

    I've been experimenting with a Boss MO-2, which supposedly is not technically an octave pedal, but sounds much like an octave up (mode 1) to octave up + unisson + octave down (mode 3). Not unlike the micro pog, except you can't control the different octave's volumes separately.
