    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. 


  2. 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.

  3. 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.


  4. 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


  5. 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.

  7. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. 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]
