UPDATE: NO RESERVE! Happy bidding!
If you're looking for this pedal, you already know what it does. But here's the company description anyhow:
You know the feeling - you play in a traditional guitar, bass and drums 3-piece but when the guitarist takes a solo, your band sounds empty.
Enter the UB1 UNIBASS.
The UB1 allows you to add an octave above whatever you play on your bass to keep the rhythm sound full while your guitarist wails away on lead. You can also add a 5th above (or a 4th below) the octave to retain the feel of guitar 'chords' underpinning your guitarist's deft pyrotechnics. Furthermore, you can add distortion to the harmony to complete the illusion.
Operation is simple. Set the controls as necessary and, at the appropriate moment, engage - your bass will not only drive your band along but it will also generate unison and/or chordal guitar accompaniment filling the hole left by your guitarist's solo.
- Add an octave above what you play so you can simulate the sound of bass and guitar playing in octaves
- Add a 5th above or a 4th below the octave sound
- Powerful distortion for the sound of an overdriven guitar
- Seperate outputs allow you to route direct bass signal to a bass amp and effect signal to a guitar amp
Tracks individual notes beautifully, and sounds awesome when running the modified sound to a guitar amp, and clean to a bass amp. I've also found that running the modified (octaves/4ths below/5ths above) out 'clean' (not using the onboard distortion), and into a BOSS Overdrive pedal before going into the guitar amp produces the best results (for me, mileage may vary). The onboard distortion is basic, and it's always nice to have more options for your sound.    
This pedal is in near mint condition, with no box and no power supply. It uses the standard 9V DC, 120mA (or higher) power input with 5.5x2.1mm barrel connector. In fact, it works best with power supplies OTHER than the original, that can supply slightly more current (such the BOSS PSA-120S at 9.6V and 500mA) or any good brick such as Voodoo Labs line.   
Ive found some YouTube videos showing the pedal in use, enjoy!
Unibass engaged from 4:30 to 7:05 of video, amazing! Solo function
Nice rock riffing, all through the same amp using the Mix output  
Industrial metal! Unibass clean bass output to Boss ODB-3 to bass amp, octave+5th output to WMD Geiger Counter to guitar amp.
What you see in the picture is what you get. Works perfectly. I am the original owner.   
The pedal is shipping from Toronto, Canada.  
Shipping and insurance will be $9.95 inside Canada and to the USA (lower 48), and $19.95 to the rest of the world. Pedal will be insured for cost of purchase.
