I am now offering "Tim tuning" as a no-cost option for the Octabvre. This tweak was developed for Tim Lefebvre's personal Octabvre - it increases low end and changes the character of the tone knob. Add a note on the paypal purchasing page if you would like the Tim tuning.
In other news, all of my favorite bass players are using 3Leaf Audio stompboxes! Meshell Ndegeocello is using the Octabvre/Proton, Bootsy Collins picked up a Doom, and Paul Bender from my favorite band Hiatus Kaiyote is using the Octabvre/Doom/Wonderlove.
Finally, I have a B-stock Little Black Box for sale. The logo didn't quite print properly. $135. Email me to grab it.

Bootsy Collins is using the Doom! Here's what he had to say about it:
"Now things are really shaping up! I mean it puts new meaning to a funkin' orgy of sounds! If you have never experienced that before then this pedal is the next best thing to being there. It's official, funk approved. Bootsy baby!!!"

New stompy! The Little Black Box is an original EQ/clean boost circuit designed to add some sizzle to your tone. The EQ section features boost-only bass and treble controls as well as a switch that selects between two distinct treble frequency points - a high treble frequency that adds an airy crispness to your instrument's signal and a lower treble frequency that sounds more like a traditional treble control.
The finish is blackened steel - a chemical process normally reserved for high-end architecture and never before used on audio equipment. Due to the hand-applied nature of the finish, each unit has a unique oxidation pattern.
Production is limited to 99 units - reserve yours here.
