Now this is the negative side on webstores. Seems like my EBS Octabass would be busted, sounds like it distorts the signal, and it doesen't track properly for octave goes off and and then back on. Plus the footswich clicks really annoingly. So I'll prolly send it back to the store, get my cash out and pay the extra 30 bucks in local store. BTW Allodox, noticed anything similar with your Octa?
