As a former guitar player, I am loaded down with guitar effects equipment. Now a bass player, I've been experimenting by running my bass through my guitar effects hoping that I would not have to entirely reinvest in bass oriented effects boxes and racks. I'm not sure that what I hear from the guitar oriented effects equipment is best for bass. Before I start spending on bass effects, can anyone tell me if there is truely a difference between guitar oriented and bass oriented effects equipment? If so, does the difference apply to only certain effects, or is it across the entire effects spectrum? Thanks in advance.
