    Is this a question, of course it's worth it. The Octron 2 is an excellent pedal, one of the best octave pedals I've found so far.

    +1. I like the loop thing.
    Even if you don't need the loop I'd recommend to get to 2 as it's got individual switch for each octave up and down = more flexibility!

    The sound is great, sure.

    I have an Octron I and I can tell you hands down that the extra features on the II would easily be worth it. I think at some point I will get one just for the extra switching. Anyway, past the extra stuff the Octron is IMO hands down the best sounding sub octave pedal out there and IMO the best sounding Octavia out there as well

    Yep, definitely worth it, plus they don't make 'em anymore so they aren't easy to get hold of.

    Yes worth it. Dave Fox is still making them, I bought a new one a couple of weeks ago.

    Love my Octron 1. Octron 2 seems totally worth it, but for the pedal board real estate I find it easier to put MXR knob covers on the upper and lower octaves of Octron 1 and just tweak with my foot... I usually just leave the dry signal around 1-3:00 or all the way off.

    If pedalboard space wasn't an issue though, I'd have definitely gone for Octr2.

    I don't know if Dave is making them or not?
    I got on the list in 2007.(twice) But I didn't here a thing.
    In the mean time I bought one in the emporium.
    Yes, It is worth it.

    It is an awesome pedal, but I sold mine because I wasn't using it all that much and it was taking up real estate. If I ever need an octave pedal again, I will grab another one. I really liked being able to switch the octave up and down effects independently. It was built like a tank like all of Dave's pedals.

    My name was called on the list, and I've got a little extra cash laying around.
