Months after the release of the original Soul Food, Mike Matthews of Electro-Harmonix had a look around at the rest of the band. Right then and there, he decided that the bass players were looking a little lean. Chef Matthews headed back into the kitchen, and the Bass Soul Food was born.
Next in Electro-Harmonix’s line of nano-sized dirt boxes is the Octavix. This new pedal is loosely styled after an Octavio, the now-famous fuzzbox used by Hendrix and countless others with a couple revisions.
