What pedals out there are Boss OC2 clones?

Recommended Posts

What pedals are out there that are Boss OC2 clones at the mo? Are there any available by builders that have any added functions or mods etc?

Firstly, do you mean actual clones, or pedals that are designed to try and get that sound?

Mainly actual clones, I have a couple of OC2's and that's what I use, but wondered if there was anything that would give me teh very same sound, but with more options and extras to fiddle with?

Not really.
A few people have cloned it as one-offs, but not added features. There's a few 'synth' mods you can make to it.
The afformentioned 3Leaf Octavbre gets about 90% of the way there I think, with the synthy direct-less setting on another footswitch,
I've not tried the Octavbre, but videos to me sound a little less subby than the OC-2

I've tried it, and sent it back. It sounds nice, less subby as you describe. But it tracked very, very poorly with my p-bass. Where my OC-2 produces full, steady tones, the octabvre was very glitchy and unpredictable.
I was very disappointed, because I really like the idea of a switch to solo the sub.

Isn't the Markbass octave pedal (small one, not the synth/octave) based on the OC-2?

Same layout at least with the -2, -1 and dry controls.

Chord OC-50 does a great job of sounding and behaving like an OC2. Cheaper than an OC2 to leave set to 'sub only', just need an A/B looper then...

If I was still in my OC-2 buying phase, that'd be a catch :D. I'm down to four though!
