    I'm looking to add an octave pedal, and have narrowed it down to the MXR M288 Bass Octave Deluxe & the MXR Sub Octave Bass Fuzz. I already have a Wampler LowBlow Overdrive/Distortion, so I don't know if the Sub Octave bass Fuzz will be redundant. There seems to be great reviews and adherents for both pedals. Opinions? Thanks!

    Tough to have an opinion about an instrument if we don't know what kind of music/musicians are involved. Without context, it's just a pricey box.

    If you don’t need the fuzz, get the BOD.

    Yeah, that's what I was leaning toward.
  5. One can never have too much fuzz.

    There are so many better octaves and so many better fuzzes but you do you boo
  7. I had the Mxr Sub octave and fuzz pedal, had a hard time with volume. I ended up with a Aguilar Filter Twin and a MXR Bass Overdrive, and I love it easy and I like easy. IMG_20181008_204115737.

    Valeton OC-10. Best budget octave out there.
