    Thank all of you for the responses!
    So far I'm going to do a little research on the ms60b, the envelope filter, octave pedal, and the hartke suggestion.

    Any more suggestions are welcome.

    Get him an MS-60B .. I had a B2.1U and I have a B-3.. if you can stretch the budget then go for a B3 otherwise .. the MS-60 is great bang for the buck.

    I would think the only shortcoming of the MS-60B for what she mentioned was that it doesn't have any drum beats.

    The zoom b2.1u is a decent choice, but if you want to make your boyfriend really happy, you should purchase the zoom b3. it has a large variety of effects, amp, and cab models. also the sound quality and the wide selection of effects, amp and cab models surpasses what the zoom b2.1u has to offer. check out my soundclick website to check out sound sample I did with the zoom b3.

    Another good choice for a bass pedal would be a zoom ms-60b. it is a stomp-box version of the zoom b3. it doesn't have as much effects as the zoom b3, but does have a good variety of useful effects to program.

    Classic! :) And too true. :bawl:

    Oh, and an MS-60B, or a gift card. I would personally go with the gift card, I don't like making choices for other people, but that's just me.

    Another vote for the MS-60 best bang for the buck out there.

    Zoom ms60b has envelope filter, fuzz, delays, chorus, flanger.... Don't think you can go wrong with that

    My wife says you are "wife material" and good luck. She says "we bassists are our pedals are picky things". Good luck!

    Tell your wife I said thank you!

    I'm leaning towards the ms60b due to all the suggestions

    I am not an effects guy at all but I own & love the Zoom MS-60b.
    I use it as a preamp right into a power amp or DI. Not all the effects are great but most of them are really good. I don't think you can go wrong.
