    my amp that i was going to replace anyways finally died out on me, it was a gift and the gifter (lol) was kind enough to get a warranty, so now i have 129.99 store credit at guitar center...what should i get? i already have lots of effects(see profile) but thought i would get a general consensus...have been lookin at a EHX BSW, or even a P-Bass but regardless what do you all think?
     
  2. First "Get an SX" reply!

    EDIT: aw crap... relized it was store credit...

    I've said before, when i get gift cards or things like that for Guitar Center in the $100 range, i usually end up spending it on annoying-to-buy things like strings, cables, and picks.

    It's a store credit tho... GC sells SX?

    edit: oops! :p
     
  4. Doesn't Digitech make the BSW(as opposed to EHX)? Regardless, I'd be looking for a decent chorus or tremolo.

    I would Way Huge Swollen Pickle or EHX Bass big muff based on your current pedal selection. I would also give the Way Huge Pork Loin a try, it may be able to out do your badder monkey; I like it better atleast.

    but the bass big muff also looks enticing and the clips sound pretty good...i'll just have to go today and try both, wonder how it will talk to the rest of my pedals as well...
     
  10. put it in a jar and start that "my ultimate bass" fund, thats a good start right there

    If your amp died, shouldn't you be buying a new amp? Seems like you need an amp more than another pedal. Or did I miss something?

    ahh you noticed that my amp died huh? i already got one reallt cheap (Ampeg BA-112) for only 150.00 but good looking out! as far as the "ultimate bass fund" is concerned i am not a fancy musician and am happy with both my fender jazzes, but wouldn't mind a p-bass but that plan is already in the works...but thanks regardless!

    actually if the fuzz thing ends up not being my thing then does anyone recc anything else like maybe a good octaver?
     
  14. "the best" octaver is the boss oc-2. theyre like $40 used, i think. i dont think guitar center would have it, because its the older model.

    hehehe:
    i have the LS-2 line selector which helps big time

    A: compressor, synth, bass fuzz, limiter
    B: tube O/D, phaser, flanger, wah-wah, tuner, EQ
    clean: Q-TRON, space echo, amp

    when i run the clean the space echo is not connected but can be if needed, and the Q-TRON is true bypass which besides the LS-2 i have no tone suck, now when both the A and B are runing then there is big tone suck but well thats the price you pay to have fun sounds and try to be cool!
