It’s no secret that a bass-octave pedal can work wonders for beefing up thin tone. Likewise, the contrast between the deeper sub-octave and dry signal can add a whole new dimension of texture and detail that really isn’t achievable with any other kind of effect out there. The Dominican Republic’s Copilot FX developed their new octave-down pedal, the Cubic, with the intent of not only providing bassists the chance to experience this flavoring firsthand, but to also give them the ability to infuse it with even deeper subs and synth-like qualities. And for the most part, the Cubic handles these duties well—if with a few rough edges.

The Cubic’s lightweight enclosure takes up just a little more space than a Boss pedal on the floor. And with nice internal wiring, smooth pot turns, and true-bypass switching, the build quality appears solid out of the box. The Cubic unfortunately doesn’t have a 9V battery option, so you’ll need to power it with a Boss-style 9V adapter or other universal power supply.
