    As far as I know the Ashdown pedal isn't out yet. But I'd take anything over the EHX Mini Q-Tron.
     
  3. I have DOD Envelope Filter. What are you guy's comments on that?

    Tried the FX25B in a shop, and thought it was OK, but had heard better things about the Original. So I bought one, and I love it. They can be picked up pretty cheap on eBay, I got mine for £18!
     
  6. I tried a lot of different envelope filters before I bought mine. Eventually I settled on the EBS BassIQ. I liked it far more that the EH Qtron, Qtron+ and MiniQ, MXR Auto Q, the DOD, the Boss....etc.

    I used to own an FX25b. It was ok but I think it suited guitar more than it did Bass.

    Take a look at the EH Bassballs.

    I just got one and really like it. The distortion switch adds a nice gritty edge to the whops.

    I played both the DOD FX25 and 25B and I thought they were both terrible... I don't know how you guys can handle that loss of low-end.

    i currently have the DOD FX25B -- it's pretty good, but I've found for what I want out of it, it has a limited range. If you crank up the Blend knob only, you'll have enough low frequency to shake lose a molar or two.

    I have a Bassballs and Q-tron on the way, and will probably not hold on to the DOD. I tried the Russian Bassballs in a store and LOVED it -- then found a good deal on a USA version online, so I snagged it.
