    My guitar player wants to sell me an effects pedal made for guitars so I can use it on my bass for 50 bucks. Should I buy it, or would a bass pedal for more money serve me a lot better?

    What kind of effects pedal is it? ( Disto, flange, delay, etc.?)

    Look for similar pedal(s) on eBay and see what they're going for to determine a fair price. You can also check prices at

    What kind of pedal is it? Most guitar distortion/overdrive pedals don't work very well for bass-they destroy the low-end. However, many other guitar effects will sound just fine.

    Guitar choruses usually bon't do the job for bass, either -- you need to get a bass chorus.
