Blew my speakers

Electro-Harmonix Octave Multiplexer XOPublished on 12/15/11 at 18:24
So let me explain what this pedal professes to be. It has a high filter and a bass filter. A blend knob. A sub stitch. Has a dry and wet output which is a nice feature. Basically it's a sub octaver. EHX generally makes pretty well built pedals for the price this one feels solid.

UTILIZATION

I am a collecter of odd and out there pedals which means EHX stuff it a pretty frequent staple of me. They have a lot of octavy pedals and some of them are very nice. I bought this having no real idea exactly what it should be used for. There are really two applications for this pedal. You can use it as a bass emulator or as a special effect for vocals and such.

UTILIZATION

I am a collecter of odd and out there pedals which means EHX stuff it a pretty frequent staple of me. They have a lot of octavy pedals and some of them are very nice. I bought this having no real idea exactly what it should be used for. There are really two applications for this pedal. You can use it as a bass emulator or as a special effect for vocals and such.

SOUND QUALITY

I first used this as a vocal effect for electronic music projects and for that it's pretty darn good. I tried it with my guitar briefly and decided it was pretty "toylike" for anything other than bass emulation. More on that in a bit. The vocal effect is a lot like something you would hear on a daft punk or Kayne track. Some people might find it over the top but I guess it depends on the genre. Now here's where the problem lies. My friend was at my practice space messing with some of my pedals and he was trying to make his strat do a bass emulation. He switched on the sub switch and had the bass knob rolled up and there was so much bass coming out of the speaker that it blew my 2x12. Speaks for itself. Dangerous costly pedal.

OVERALL OPINION

Now let me be clear, I really liked this pedal for the crazy vocal effects. But as a bass sim it blew my speakers and didn't even sound all that great to be honest. I haven't heard of other people blowing speakers with this. Maybe I just got unlucky. I have since let go of mine because I don't need it anymore and don't want anymore blown speakers.

An analog octave pedal to EHX size, supplied with standard 9v in a robust metal shell. A button for the filter action on the treble, one for bass, a knob that handles the mix between the dry and wet so that actuating the switch subs or not frequency (station qux hp guitar!). Jack in, jack out and roll youth!

UTILIZATION

It's pretty simple, there is a manageable her quite easily.

The big worry as others have said are spurious stalls. But it gives him a dirty side that after reflection (I sold since ...), I would have kept my studio. If this is not playable live, stalls for a specific part can have a charm. The subs are mushy and the position is not sour, filters act...…

The big worry as others have said are spurious stalls. But it gives him a dirty side that after reflection (I sold since ...), I would have kept my studio. If this is not playable live, stalls for a specific part can have a charm. The subs are mushy and the position is not sour, filters act reasonably but not folichon either. I ask to try a bass that can be correct. Otherwise I regret that ny is not an octave higher.

OVERALL OPINION

I kept it about a year, I sold it because I did not have utility in my rig, I no longer uses octaveurs available. I love its robustness and low price, I do not like instability and lack of options finally. Like many EHX I put it in the bizarre use studio effects box.
