    well, everyone asks if they can use guitar effects on their basses, but my question is the other way around.

    i know you CAN use them on guitar, but you think a bass compressos/enhencer (boss) 7 band eq (boss) and maybe other work not suck the high end :confused: or just suck the sound
     
  2. my band's drummer who also plays a little bit guitar played the guitar with a odb-3 through a laney bass amp, haha.
    it sounded terrible.

    I can't imagine it sounding good.

    The Boss EQ sounds good on guitar ( or so I've heard), and it has the exact same frequencies, but with one lower... other pedals I have found to sound pretty bad...

    i use an odb-3 on my guitar when i get bored. Wouldnt peform with it, but hey, i wouldnt peform with a guitar so thats ok. I actually dont even own a guitar amp, I use a swr 10 and turn the tweeter off. Its not bad when used to play with guitar licks and kill time
