Purchased an Arion octave pedal

An octave pedal can sound pretty cool if used in a good way. So, I decided to get a cheap, analog pedal that could give me the low octave notes.

The Arion MOC-1 is an octave pedal of low cost. I got it dirt cheap off of eBay. It actually does the octave thing down to two octaves, which is pretty cool. The sound is dark and way cool. The tracking is so-so; low notes don't work so well. It sounds like it's starting to oscillate and the amp sounds like it's broken... but it sounds cool for some things. I'll post a video clip soon.

Whew, we have lots of gigs coming up. We are opening for the band Trooper here in Camrose next week, on Wednesday. Then on Friday, we play at Merchants coffee house, and on Saturday, it's off to O'Shea's to play for St. Patrick's day. A whole week of rest after that until we play at the Rotary Black Tie Event in Camrose. Busy time ahead!

Needless to say, I'll be busy practicing songs, especially some new songs that we are doing. I haven't played any Irish songs before, but I'm in for a week of learning up ahead. Should be interesting.
