Nice looking, but of limited use

By BC

from Houston, TX

Comments about Ashdown Sub-Octave Plus Bass FX Pedal:

This pedal is very nice looking and rugged, but seems to have problems tracking notes - it "hunts" for the lower octive, and you hear it all. This is more pronounced with sustained notes.

Great pedal. . .

By RollTheBones

from Milwaukee, WI

Comments about Ashdown Sub-Octave Plus Bass FX Pedal:

This is a great sub-octave pedal for the price. I have had no problems with it. The low end distortion is a nice touch - it's there, but at such low frequencies, it can be a little hard to hear. I've seen others having problems with tracking, but I only notice that when I start getting lazy. If you have a clean fretting technique, it works great, even with an active bass. A must have for the price.

You get what you pay for

By BigBlack

from Baytown, TX

Comments about Ashdown Sub-Octave Plus Bass FX Pedal:

In theory this is an amazing piece of engineering. In practice it turns out to be an amazing piece of junk. It looks great! Even the UV meter worked! The price is sweet! But alas, it just doesn't work. I play a 4 string Schecter Stilleto with traditional tuning. No matter what string you are playing the octaver cuts out at about the 18th fret mysteriously. Great sound until that point. Also, there's supposed to be distortion on this pedal and I never heard it. Ashdown makes great amps and cabs but don't dare buy one of these cheap effects pedals. Buy an EBS instead.

Too Many Problems

By Melonmuziq

from Fort Wayne, IN

Comments about Ashdown Sub-Octave Plus Bass FX Pedal:

This pedal sounds thick and warm the way it should and I really like the addition of the distortion feature but it does not track fast enough and if u let a note ring out it gets confused and starts to cut out and very the pitch. Also the VU meter light did not work. I have had other Ashdown pedals that had problems too so I am sending this back and will never buy another Ashdown product and I advise u not to either.

Wow

By Butch-iBbFw

from Fremont, NE

Comments about Ashdown Sub-Octave Plus Bass FX Pedal:

Where to start. When I received it I was in awe of how pretty it was. Looks aside this thing is a tank. Fairly heavy so it should stand up to any kind of punishment you can dish out. I got to practice and plugged it in. So it took me awhile to get it tuned in, which is an ongoing thing but when isn't it. So, I got it tuned in fairly well the input knob is slightly touchy but you can further control the input with the volume knobs on your bass. Now comes the fun part. When I got this thing up to full power on my amp standing 10 feet away I could feel every bone in my body shake. This thing will make anyone cry mommy when you kick it on. Definately recomend.
