    Maybe not anything exciting -but I was looking for an octave that does octave up & maybe an EQ so I can set up separate bass & guitar boards (I don't use as much with bass, and so I can have a small board for bass.)

    I got a Mooer Pure Octave-Which has a dial for various up/down octaves & level controls for up, down & dry signal.
    It works well with my bass--some of the settings I don't see myself using, but others I will.
    It is a small pedal, but I have room for a larger one.
    I had targeted used Octave pedal of a different sort at L&M's inventory blowout--but someone else got it first.
    So I got this one--decent price & it does what I need it to do.
    It's got good & bad reviews online.

    I also got a DOD FX40-B EQ, for even less.
    I know a lot of people don't like DOD pedals, but this one --again--does what I need it to do.
    I like having an EQ pedal to set up an alternate sound and have it ready to go.
    As well, sometimes it helps when playing with others to cut through.

    This one will go on my guitar board & my Dano Fish & Chips EQ will go on the bass board (They just work better that way)

    So my bass board will go:
    Mooer Pure Octave>Dunlop High Gain Volume Pedal>Boss AW-3 Dynamic Wah>Dano Fab Chorus>Dano Fish & Chips EQ

    I often only play with just the volume pedal hooked up--but I like having options and the other effects can be fun.

    I have a Mooer Pure Octave. For reasons I don't understand (although it could be a defective crystal for the clock), the pitch in mine is just a little off, and not nearly as accurate as the pitch on my Micro-POG.

    The Octave -> Filter -> Chorus path is sure to produce some pleasing sounds. You may want to consider a small 2-input mixer to blend the filtered octave and clean signal, before chorusing. Unfortunately, unlike the Micro-POG, which has separate clean and octave outputs for parallel processing, the Mooer unit has only one output. So any sort of blending of processed octave and clean would require a splitter of some sort as well.

    It's sounded okay to me so far--maybe that's due to me using it with a fretless bass?

    And thanks for the tip on the mixer--I'll have to check that out.

    That's why I think the issue might be a defective crystal on mine. I can't see Mooer successfully developing and marketing a product that sounds flat in every instance.

    And since "pics or it didn't happen" is still a thing for some people:
