    Could someone explain how I would make use of the wet and dry outputs? is the dry output there so I can somehow avoid the tone sucking bypass switch?
    I have no clue how to put this in my pedalboard... I'm new to this business
    thanks!

    The dry output is there so you can use a second amp or a second mixer channel for the un-effected signal.

    is there a way I could use the dry as a "true bypass" on the same amp? or would I have to buy a looper for that

    Most amps only have one functional input. You'd need an additional switcher to switch the wet and dry signals into that one input.

    It also is a great place to hook up a tuner, so that it won't be on the signal path.

    ooh hmm nice idea.
    bongo, where would the switcher go? would the boss lineselector do the trick?

    The Boss LS2 should be fine. Also, think about it- two outputs, one input. Where does the switcher go?

    I think in general, less than $500 is considered a "good deal" for a bass whammy at this point. $300 or less would be a steal, simply because even if you didn't like it, you could make a profit by turning around and selling it.
     
  10. thanx for the info!!!
