Hi guys,

Hope you are all well ! smile.gif

I have a small question here. I work a lot with my loop pedal trying to build song progressively adding a base riff, bass and then playing a solo on it. It's a lot of fun !

In that purpose, I have a Boss RC-20 Loop pedal which is awesomely cool. I can overdub easily and it works perfectly.

What I would like to improve is the way I play the bass line. Obviously, I use my guitar to do that and I wonder if I could get a more bass sound with an octaver ? Is an octaver a pedal who drop your sound one octave below ? And do you know any good octaver pedal ?

So I could put it in front of the loop pedal and switch it on to play the bass then switch off to play the guitar. That could work, I am sure. smile.gif

Thanks for your enlightenments.

The digitech whammy pedal has a option to drop tune 1 octave

Yes, and its sounds best also imo. But Boss has a strictly octavider thing that also is good that is not so expensive... Congrats Keilnoth, I just bought a RC-20 myself, it is real fun to do some practicing with that one! smile.gif

I think Boss OC-3 would be the most flexible one.
If it'll give a good bass sound or not, idk.

Probably you can get a cheap real bass that will sound more like a real bass for the same money you spend on a pedal wink.gif

The problem I guess will be to adapt to playing rhythm to go with the drums and not sound like a guitar player on bass. smile.gif

If you just need a simple octave effect, and it's the first time you're getting one, I recommend Boss one. It's a decent pedal, cheap, and does the job.

I recommend the Micro Pog by EHX. I have a POG (not the micro) and it works great. You'll enjoy the octave up, which the boss doesn't give you.

Boss OC-3 is a pretty good and famous octaver pedal. It should give you a nice sound. You should be able to get a more "bass like" sound with it...
