Hi everybody, I usually "hang out" in the bass forums but this seemed like the appropriate place for this thread. I'm not totally into the effects thing but will be once I get my new bass. I own a Roland V-Bass unit. I'm having a bass built that has the built in bridge/preamp to allow me to connect directly to the Roland V-Bass directly (I no longer have to use the GK-2B). Are there any other products out there, like the V-Bass, that have the 13 pin input but have a greater variety of "synth", "string", "brass", etc sounds? The V-Bass has great effects and amp/bass models but it is lacking in the "sounds like a different instrument" sound. I'd love a unit that is like the Roland GR-33 for guitar, but for BASS. So, any and all help would be great in this area. Thanks.
