Oh, I never thought of that with bass. I'll give that a go.

So I have a couple of 6 plug Daisy Chains however they will only power up 4 or 5 Pedals not 6

Ordered a couple of 3 plugs hopefully that works

Not yet. It's in the country and on its way. Hopefully here for the weekend.

The Solidgoldfx OF works nicely with the VCA Compressor and Boss PEQ behind it

I think this pedal should be designed as 2x3 not 1x3 plus switch😐 The preamp setting I want different than the OD so having separate dials would make this pedal significantly better /useful

But it’s well made , cool low gain OD. The preamp side should have a bit less hair for my tastes but I haven’t fired it up through a big SS rig with a Rock Band yet. I think it’ll be awesome in that setting

The Ashdown Subharmonic Octaver is among the most annoying pieces of equipment I have ever owned

Normally I would have binned it but in there is a brilliant reliable smooth cool Octaver

It’s just who knows when it’s going to perform 😂😂😂. It adds hi end hiss if it’s not in tandem with the correct pedals It hates the the tone or Treble boost of any bass guitar😩. I think it wants it’s own power spot rather than sharing so it’s probably first one out. It can lag but again it’s not clear to me yet when that will happen 😂😂

When everything aligns it is a top pedal though
Definitely Boss OC-2 influenced but that’s not a bad thing.

Due to a seemingly never-ending series of winter illnesses, I haven't had a proper loud hoon on it yet. Fingers crossed for Sunday.

Does it take a 9V battery? See if that improves it :-)
