    Oh noes! I was moving stuff around, playing with my EHX Deluxe base big muff to see if I should keep it or sell it (gonna sell it). You know, just having fun, playing around with pedal order and what not.. then this happened!!!

    Free space!!

    I was about to go grab an MXR octaver, even asked some questions about it in another thread, but then it hit me. Since I'm pretty new to effects I have a feeling there's something awesome out there that I don't even know about! Something that could fill that hole. Thrumpinator? Chorus? Who knows!

    If you had these 4 pedals and could only add one more what would it be?

    I'm playing a little muse, a little pearl jam, rhcp, Cage The Elephant (come a little closer is hard!), black keys, green day, trying some U2 and a tad of avenge seven fold... throw in some oldies in there and you get the idea.

    1 pedal, what would it be?

    I've just started a my pedal collection this year as well. I would definitely recommend the MXR Bass Chorus Deluxe, or the MXR Bass Envelope Filter. You would most likely get more use from the chorus, but the envelope filter is fun to mess around with. I noticed you have the B7K. I have the B3K and that is by far probably the best bass overdrive I have ever heard. The thing is is you can take from a little bite, to overdrive, to all out fuzz. Great Pedal!!!

    I was gonna say flanger but the mxr bass chorus deluxe can do both.

    Or a dedicated overdrive like the vintage

  7. Hmm...chorus, octave, flanger, phaser and filter are good effects to have. Couple of options: a dedicated pedal for one of these (I'd go for the MXR bass chorus deluxe, which has a flanger switch !) or the multi fx Zoom MS60B, which gives you all and more to play with.

    Choices, man, choices.... stu le fun !!!

    Octomizer on the way.

    After thinking about it a long time I figured I could spend hours just playing arround with a zoom 60b, I'd rather spend that time practicing!

    Thanks a lot guys!

    Just keep in mind that IE isn't currently producing pedals. Heck, might give you time to save up!

    if you're looking for a chorus, I can recommend the tech21 bass boost chorus. for me it's the best bass chorus that I've ever owned besides my vintage rackmount loft 440 that I bought new in 1975 (and I still have it ;)).

    My choice would like be an OC-2. Never liked chorus, and you already have fuzz, OD, and an envelope filter.

    EDIT: $190 for a Bass Boost Chorus? Oochamagoocha!!! I'd rather get one of those Joyo CE-2 clones ;)

    yeah, well, it's way, way better than my Tonepad CE-2 (modded for bass and built with all NOS OEM components) and I really like my CE-2.

    Fair enough. I guess I just never liked chorus enough to want to spend real money on one.

    Had to :p

    Free Space on my board is like a hideous thing that must be replaced immediately haha
     
  20. Actually had a dream once because of free space on my board. Bought a BF-3, which lasted about a year and was traded away for a block 90.
