    I wasn't looking to buy any more pedals today. I was just driving around to the Hock Shop and a couple of music stores. At Long & McQuade I spied an off-rental TC Electronic Subnup for $40 below retail. It's like new. I thought of buying one before, but not for $180 CDN (that's overpriced, IMO.)

    Anyway, brought it home, plugged in my '17 Tribute T on one side, my Vox AmPlug in the other, and fired it up.

    Gosh.

    Deep Purple without having to drag around a keyboard player and a B3.

    One octave up, or one AND two down all at the same time or individually, each controlled by a volume control. In fact, all four knobs are just volume controls as the octaves are always being produced. One tiny switch for Poly, Tone Print and Classic. I have no intention of messing with programming because there are tons of sounds available. Removing the dry signal gives you pure organ tones with high and a low octave turned up, or strange things indeed with just the octave up. Using the sub 2 setting by itself is very bass-like, but doesn't exactly sound like a bass. I was trying to find a 12-string sound, but haven't found that yet.

    Cool toy. I think I'll use this pedal for noodling more than just about any of my other pedals, just because it's so much fun.

    The local Sam Ash had one for $80 used last winter, couldn't pass it up. Very useful pedal, totally cop the keyboard for I'm A Man & great octave fuzz tones with any fuzz or distortion pedal.
    Killer pedal.

    Congrats! It seems as one of the most interesting releases from TC. Octaves are indeed so much fun.
