  1. All you needed to say was "yes that is damage not dirt". I wasn't attacking you, I was simply asking so I can be sure of condition (as the previous commenter also did) as I know of someone else selling the same model Proton in better condition.

    I am aware you offered G&S if the buyer covers fees. I personally have never bought of someone who asked this, nor have I ever asked a buyer to cover fees when I've sold items. It's not against any rules though so, that's your choice. 

    Nobody slandered anyone, I did not falsely accuse you of anything. I simply expressed why I may be reluctant to commit to buying this, which I believe to be fair enough seeing as I cannot see any items you've yet sold and therefore there is no feedback available. 

    Good luck with your sale.

  2. Is that dirt on the font on the top of the pedal or damage? A little bit put off by the condition and that you're asking for people to send money by F&F... That's usually banned on most sites as it's how people get scammed. I see at least one person get scammed due to paying by F&F on Facebook per week.

    If you just want to replace one individual patch with another then first find a patch on the pedal that you want to overwrite. Then find the file on your PC of the patch you wish to write to the pedal. Rename this file so that it starts with the two-digit prefix of the slot into which you wish to load it. Open the renamed file again via the editor then click “write single file to pedal” and it will get loaded into that slot.

    If you want to load multiple files at once onto the pedal then it’s best to create a folder, copy in the PC files you want to load onto the pedal. Then rename each file with the slot numbers you want them to go, choose that folder via the editor then click “write all”. Any blanks will be skipped over and left untouched in the pedal.

    Is it possible to switch existing patches this way? For example I want the first 9 patches to be the ones I use most often, and there are one or two (such as 32 and 43) that I would like to swap in for 4 and 7. 
    Can I simply change the file names (so change 04 to 32 and 07 to 43 and vice versa for both) as you suggest and then 'write all'? Or is this only for adding new patches?

  4. Thanks for the suggestions so far think I might go to a shop and try a multiplexer out, if it's not what I need, then I'll wait and get a Foxrox Octron 3 or a Mutron Octavider. Shame neither is sold in the Uk though ha :(

    If you're OCD about colours then... Can't really help you with that... Although the Octave Multiplexer would fit.

    Yeah no problem! Thanks again

    Valeton do an OC-2 copy for not much, but again, that's not different.

    Thanks for the suggestion! I'll check it out

    I quite liked the Octave Multiplexer I had although it's certainly a different flavour than the OC2. The TC Nether seems like a nice cheap OC2 clone if that's what you're after. My personal fav cheapo octave is the Chord OC-50, which is OC2 based but with a drive option.

    Thanks for the suggestions! To be honest, I'm just looking for a general octaver at this point, the OC2 does what it does and has that smooth mid range sound, but I'm just looking for something perhaps a bit different to the OC2, maybe more 'standard octaver' if that makes sense? I had a Foxrox Octron which had a really nice Octave down. A bit fatter than the OC2, super clean and tracked well. Also had a distorted octave up which had its uses (but not a necessity). 
    I might consider getting one of those again..
    It's a bit silly but I'm picky with colour schemes on my board ha, most of it is black/silver/white so I'm trying to find something that will not only sound right but look right.  

  7. Looking into getting a new octave pedal as the direct signal on my OC2 has gone and the Octave 1 often doesn't cut through by itself.

    Ideally I'd get a MuTron Octavider but I'm looking at cheaper models for the time being. 
    Has anyone had any experience with the Octave Multiplexer? Any good/bad feedback?  I just need a simple octaver really

    I think the answer is - it depends. On your skills mainly. I'll be honest and say if you have to ask the question you shouldn't be attempting it yourself...

    But if you're interested in giving it a go, start with building some basic pedals yourself to get a feel for things before you attempt rehousing something made by somebody else, which is typically more difficult that building from scratch yourself.

    Have a look at pedalparts.co.uk for a start. Also look at the DIY pedal thread here.

    Yeah sounds like a good idea, doing it myself wasn't something I was seriously considering, but was still interested in whether it would be a big job or not.

    Thanks for the advice and info!

    The placement of the octaver in the effects chain plays some role in the tracking performance. Some say that a compressor in front of the octaver helps the tracking.

    I used to run my compressor  everything, including my OC2, but I've just started running the compressor after it as the OC2 can be quite quiet, so the compressor helps bring it up to the same volume as my clean tone.  Something to consider for anyone else having a similar issue with the OC2. 


  10. So I've seen a few really cool pedal rehousing jobs done in the US recently and I was wondering if anyone knows of where to get this kind of thing done in the UK?
    Alternatively, is this kinda possible as a home project for a beginner such as myself? Links to parts or kits would be great.

    Example: This is an example of someone rehousing a Boss OC2. In this case they've removed the second octave.

  11. Basically I've recently bought a Pedaltrain Metro 24 off of somebody but they've put the hook/rough side of the velcro onto the board rather than the loop/soft side...
    So both my pedals and board have hook side on... I'm currently only using 5 or 6 pedals.

    Should I replace the velcro on the board or the pedals? I'd rather change the velcro on the board but I'm not sure how tricky that would be.


  12. All prices include postage. Selling to fund some new purchases. Message me if you've got a Future Impact I. for sale!

    Boss RE-20 Space Echo (Boxed) - SOLD
    One of my favourite delay pedals. The Treble and Bass controls are really useful, especially on bass for removing some low end/boosting treble of the trails.


    Boss TU-3 Tuner - SOLD
    The standard tuner. Lots of use at home and gigs but in great condition


  13. Clearing out a bunch of pedals to make way for some new additions! All prices include postage.

    Considering trades for: Compressors, Future Impact Bass Synth, Sansamp Programmable Driver

    If you'd like any more pictures inbox me.


    Foxrox Octron (LTD edition) -  SOLD
    Limited edition brown casing. In full working order. Produces a subby clean octave down and a distorted octave up that can be mixed in with the dry signal. 













    Darkglass Vintage Microtubes - SOLD
    Great bass overdrive pedal. In full working order. No box.


    EHX Bass Microsynth (Faulty resonance slider) - SOLD
    The resonance (Q) slider is not working, meaning it is always set to max/open. This only has an audible impact on the pedal's sound if your start/stop frequencies are different. 
    Offering this at a low price due to this issue, but it works and sounds fine other than that.


    Boss CE-2B Bass Chorus - SOLD
    Old school Boss Bass Chorus. Green label. Made in Japan. In full working order.


    EHX Bassballs - £65
    Another old school pedal. Twin-dynamic envelope filter. In full working order. No box


    EHX Bass Big Muff - SOLD
    Needs no intro! Bass fuzz. In full working order. No box.

    Might be easier to list the effects you want to use, then people can suggest brown pedals within that criteria :)


    I did, I mentioned ''Modulations or unique sounds in particular'' to give a rough idea of what I might be looking for.

  15. I'm a sucker for colour co-ordination and I'm wondering what brown pedals are out there?... Modulations or unique sounds in particular.

    I've got a slot on my board available next to two brown pedals (Boss GE-7B and a FoxRox Octron) and it looked cool when the OC2 was next to them, so I'm wondering if there are any other brown pedals out there.

    Any suggestions?

    I know of(off the top of my head):
    MXR Bass Fuzz
    Chunk Brown Dog 
    Old Boss Bass pedals..

    The glou glou fx and chase bliss trem/vibes are all you would ever need but pretty spendy.
    The new endangered audio research spectravibe will be awesome.
    If it's just a good simple organic sounding vibe there will be cheaper options out there. These are just the ones I've known.

    Thanks for the suggestions! I was looking at the Chase Bliss Warped Vinyl yesterday. Looks great, just a bit out of my price range right now, especially as it isn't an essential for me.

  17. In a lot of modern hiphop/heavy electronic production the bass/sub are super bass-y and often 'slide' up to an octave/higher note in a run very quickly in a way that is not done by hand, it often sounds like a whammy could do if it was after some kind of octave pedal making the initial sub-tone.

    I use an Octron and an OC2 in my chain and was wondering would placing a Bass Whammy after help me with this? Does anyone have any experience running a whammy after octavers? The whammy in my experience sounds very cheesy so I'm hoping not to invest in one to find it just sounds comical.

    Not any more. Acoustic guitars and keyboards are now in what used to be Chris Bryant's old shop on the corner, Electric guitars are in the shop which used to have the keyboards and basses are in the basement of the same shop.

    This is IMHO a victory for Acoustic guitarists, who can now try instruments out without being blown away by loud electrics in the next bay.

    Ah yeah, I went onto Denmark Street the other day while in London and realised it's changed, shame really I liked the old bass shop.

  19. I bought a Darkglass Vintage Microtubes from [color=#5A5A5A][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif][size=3][url="http://basschat.co.uk/user/8487-macieq/"]macieq[/url][/size][/font][/color][color=#5A5A5A][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif][size=3] , dispatched very quickly from Poland to UK and was packaged very well. Trusted seller :)[/size][/font][/color]
