    Interesting but I'm not exactly sure what it does ;)

    wait didn't he use a Boss OC-2 for his "signature" sound?

    It took me a couple minutes to figure out what they meant by "dual" octave. I believe it's just one octave-down effect, but they have provided two separate blend controls that you can toggle between. So e.g. you could set one "channel" for 80% dry signal, 20% octave down; and the other channel for 50/50%, or whatever. But it's still just one octave down either way.

    Yeah but he has a deal with Ashdown, not with Boss. :meh:

    The switchable settings is a great idea. I only wish they'd made the pedal bigger! :D

    It'd be cheaper to just have two OC-2s, and probably take up less space too.

    It looks interesting.
    I just hope it is of better built quality than what I have,very unfortunatelly, come to expect from ashdown.
    It does look rather interesting though.
    A shame also is that they put it in such a large box, when the trend seems to be going more towards small.
    I look forward to trying it and see how it stacks up against the mxr, pog oc2 and 3 etc..

    Interesting - it's the second artist piece of gear he does.
    There was a Fender P bass made after his own instrument a few yeas back (a nice but expensive bass).

    I like the look of Ashdown pedals. They are unique. And they have this "industrial" vibe going for them.

    Haven't they made two different sizes, that look more or less the same? I saw a couple of their pedals in a shop display some time ago, and had to do a double-take because they looked like shrunk-down versions of the pedals I had actually used. Anyone confirm?

    Soloing is spelt "Soling". Just a typo.

    C'mon...the first bullet point feature is Pino's signature!

    "Spelt" is a type of grain.
