  1. Little update... Since posting earlier in this thread about the markbass raw vibe octaver... I ended up buying one.. with a board shake up, I needed a smaller footprint than the ebs octabass I've been using for years... Took a chance on the promo vid on YouTube.. it's way cheaper than the mxr, that I was also considering.. now I have it, I really like it! Nice & simple, easy to find the sweet spot ....does what I need for sure... thoroughly recommend it!
  2. Stripped down on size again for the majority of gigs I do these days... Some slight compromises on sound to have a smaller footprint. Pretty happy with it though... Tuner, envelope filter, compressor, octaver, eq boost, dirt, chorus.
  3. The Mark Bass MB raw series octaver is available very soon from Andertons for £109 free postage! It looks like a great little pedal... 🧐🙂
  4. The Okto Nojs sounds interesting but it's just too big for my small board... i have several other dirt boxes for combo sounds .... Gotta be a smallish footprint octaver for my needs.....
  5. Blimey!.... That was a BIG read! (....and I skipped a few pages! 🤫) Fascinating & very informative, as always .... If you need to explore opinions on bass kit... this is the place! So, throwing my bit in... I've used the EBS Octabass (old blue one) for many years & been very happy with it.. My pedal board is shrinking & it is now the largest one on it! So I've been looking at alternatives with a smaller footprint. The world has moved on!... so much choice.. Thanks to some investigation & mostly this thread!... I have a new short list. 1. MXR M288 Bass Octave Deluxe Pedal - not really much smaller but I'm impressed. The knobs look good! (Growl, Girth & mid button) 2. MXR M280 Vintage BASS Octave - emulating the OC2, I guess.. nice small footprint but don't really want the 2 oct down 3. COG T16 Analogue Octave - That filter sweep looks interesting for some quirky different sounds 4. EBS OctaBass Studio Edition - slightly smaller footprint than the old blue one & a bit different in the control department 5. Markbass Raw Octaver - nice & simple operation...... I thought I was down to a two horse race... but then I read on! There's been much talk about some of these but any more information/experiences about the Markbass Raw (how much is this?), EBS new version & MXR 280 vintage would be gratefully received. 🙂
  6. Mine's a 2015 model & the only mod is a hip shot d tuner ... Classic sound, really happy with it.
  7. ....for the most part..... I use the smaller rig more often than not 😊... 🤖🍌👻🌚👽

      Quite right.

      In one of the series (Restaurant at the End of the Universe?) the notion is also expressed when he says that the question of Life the Universe and Everything and the answer to the question of Life the Universe and Everything can not exist together in the same time space continuum because they cancel each other out.

      One of the stories told of a race of beings who believed that the universe was the product of a sneeze from a great mythical creature.  They lived in perpetual fear of the coming of the great white handkerchief.

      Of course your common working philosopher might have other ideas...

  18. Thanks for all the suggestions .... I eventually went with the LaBella extra light Flats.... The gauge fits exactly with the nut... & although I was unsure if I'd get on with a set so light,[color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]39 - 96.... They actually feel great & sound perfect.... [/font][/color][color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif] [/font][/color] [color=#282828][font=helvetica, arial, sans-serif]Maybe try some Nylon Tapewounds another time... These will probably last for ever on this bass though!.. [/font][/color]
