are there any?
Low octave notes at max wattage might threaten a speaker that has borderline capacity.
Same with any effect--overusing it.
This is the only higher end pedal I use and it's only been recently, but you have to be clear and concise if you're dealing with the lower octave. Your play has to be clear is what I mean by that. The octave mechanism needs to track the frequencies that your playing and if the notes don't sound solid, you can have breakup or cut of the low octave signal.
also, the instructions for my octave pedal advocated using the neck pickup as it provides a better signal for the effect to track.
I've found this to all be true. I've only popped this on for certain parts of a jam for something different, but I'm working on a riff that utilizes the low octave setting and it sounds fat.
It could cause a rip in the space/time continuum
And that's what I'm going for right there!
BTW - Using my Octron on a gig for the first time tonight. Two songs max. Loving this pedal! :AOK
