    You have to tell it how many strings you have? That's a new one on me... Looks interesting, though.

    the GK-2B pickup that it uses is 4,5,6 switchable.

    I suppose it would have to be, wouldn't it?

    that's definitely something that will be taken into consideration once i'm rich and famous and have a big chunk of money to drop on 3 custom foderas and a big rack.

    then i'll get one for sure! :D



    seriously though - if i wanted to outfit my SSII with that system...how much cake are we talking?

    Shouldn't this be in "effects"?

    Hmmm, number of strings required as an input???? 4,5 or 6 are the options - that's not gonna be picked up by JT in a hurry now is it????:D :D
     
  11. I don't use effects enough to buy one. Besides, you play the bass, nobody could hear it anyway. :D :p

    Nah, I'm happy with my meager few effects pedals.

    It actually looks kinda cool. I've also seent eh Boss GT-6B which looks similar - but without the additional pickup!!


    I'd bought a POD Pro, and to be honest haven't been overly impressed by it - it's effects aren't that great, whih is more what I was looking for. Although, for recording purposes it does add something nice to the sound.

    I could see the POD getting replaced by a V-Bass or a GT-6B if they perfom anything like the write ups suggest

    I'll be trying one out if they ever actually ship...
    I'll try to remember to review it here.
    Ordered it a few weeks back.

    I don't so much see it as an effects processor(don't really use the POD that way either). I use the VG8 for the modeling and tuning capabilities. I hope to achieve the same with the V Bass. It makes for some interesting concoctions...
    I just hope they ship mine before the first upgrade/add-on comes out.
