    I only have one, so that's my favorite.

    Boss OC-5.

    I have an OC2, BOD, and a C4. I like to have octave options!

    BOD is my main go-to for that bass solo octave sound with or without envelope filter happening.

    OC2 is set up for that deep sub synth thing it does so well.

    C4 is correctly named. ITS EXPLOSIVE.

    Digitech Bass Whammy (reissue). I have owned the following octavers/shifters: EHX Bass Synth EHX HOG1, Digitech Bass Whammy, Digitech XP-100, Boss PS-3, ZVex Jonny Octave, Chunk Systems Octavius Squeezer. Used more than that. The two I have left are the Chunk OS and the Bass Whammy. And I'm considering selling the Whammy, even though I think it's the best shifter ever made, and it's the best foot pedal on any pedal I've used. Wish it had a pure expression mode to be honest. So, for me: Chunk OS. Overall: Digitech Whammy.

    I've got an Octabvre Mini and it does everything I want an octave pedal to do.

    I've gone back and forth so many times, but I just can't bring myself to sit in front of a computer any more than I already do.

    For pitch shifted octaves, Micro POG.
    For synthetic octaves, Octave Multiplexor.

    The only one I have right now is a Red Witch Zeus, which is great, but my favorite is the Foxrox Octron.

    Can you elaborate on why the Foxrox is your favourite? Which other ones have you tried? I always hear about it, but as silly as it is, I just can't get over how it looks.

    I currently own an Electro-Harmonix POG2 and frankly there's nothing I want from an octave pedal that it doesn't do. So I guess it's my favorite?
    I used to own a Musitronics Mutron Octave Divider and that was pretty cool, but ...nah, the POG2 is still my fave.

    I've owned a POG 2, Micro POG, Bass Octave Deluxe, Vintage Bass Octave, C4, Zeus (which is an OC-2 style circuit and a fuzz), and Aguilar Octamizer, as well as an Octron and Octron 2, and have used an EBS Octaver, as well as the subocatves available in various Line 6 products. I just prefer the tone of the suboctave generated by the Octron circuit (it is not trying to be another OC-2 clone), plus it has the gnarly Octave up, as well. I've been hankering for an Octron 3, but the Zeus is meeting my needs right now, so I haven't spent the money...yet.
