I just got my Bass IQ but it is damaged (the switch is a little missplaced and it is hard to set it to the "down" position) and I will send it back to the mailorder store. On the phone they asked me if I wanted another BassIQ or something else. They also have an Electro Harmonix Q-Tron for about the same price and I am not sure if i should get that one instead. I noticed that when I dig in a littler harder the Bass IQ can't handle the signal anymore (sounds a bit distorted). Also it seems like the Q-Tron has more options. I am having a hard setting the BassIQ to a good slap setting. But I guess that is just because I am not very experienced with it yet. What do you personally prefer and what are the main differences between these two envelope filters? Unfortunately I can't try them out anywhere because where I live there are no stores that have bass fx pedals.
