    Which one would you keep - W&C Tall Font Russian or Boss OC-2?
    I've got my main dirt (VMT) and only room for either.
    And no, can't keep both.

    How harsh is the Wren And Cuff club on members who try to leave?

    Keep both until you decide. I'm sure you've got a shelf or a drawer somewhere.

    I'd definitely go with the TFR.

    OC-2, man. Sweet octave.

    Aha. they'll only break one kneecap then.

    If you can do without either, get rid of them both I say. No point keeping things just to fill gaps.

    I'd keep the TFR as they are tougher to find used generally if you ever wanted one again, whereas the OC-2 is easy to find. There are also newer and conceivably better octaves now like the IE Subterranea you might want to check out if you ever need an Octave in the future, whereas I don't know of a more highly regarded Russian Muff derivative for bass...
    Or just off both and save that money!

    I'm leaning more towards TFR now. It just seems a bit more usable in a hard rock trio setting but I'd like a few more opinions.

    Why do you have to sell one again?

    Mostly my OCD acting up. I gotta have an "end to all" pedalboard and I wanna keep essentials on it. I guess I could keep one or the other and not sell, but main question is, which one to put on the board.

    In a sports team you may have a certain team on the field at a given time, but you need a few subs on the bench to bring on in case you need to make a tactical change or you have an injury, or just to give one player a rest...

    Likewise any decent pedal board may have its basic philosophy and arrangement but you need to be able to rejig it now and again to suit a new style you're into, a different bass, or just for a change...

    Just as a sports team with no subs would be a weak team, a pedalboard without subs is a weak board IMO... just my way of thinking about it ...
     
  13. You're what some people call an "enabler". I don't mind.

    Reasons to ditch the OC-2:

    1) it's an octaver. That's kind of dumb, having a pedal to add a bass note to what you're playing, when you are already playing a bass.

    2) it's a boss.

    3) it's brown.

    4) it does not track perfectly

    I have less use for it. Plus, TFR + phaser = awesome. Or a wah, also fantastic. And I have an octaver on my Ashdown amp if I really want it.

    And yet you were fine with 'it's brown' as a reason? :p
