Beginner Effects?

  1. Gentleman: I am just starting out playing the bass. I have a Fender standard Jazz. I am looking for suggestions for what types of effects I should get just for fun. I listen to mostly hard rock/metal. Of course I cant play any of it yet. I am just looking for something to play around with while I am learning. Is there any thing that I will find usefull down the linethat I could get into without dropping serious coin?:confused:

    Frankly it's best to learn without any effects, since effects mask a lot of playing flaws you should get rid of.
    But distortion and chorus are nice FX to have, same with a compressor.
    But again, serious practising is done with a clean bass sound.
  3. I know you don't ask many questions here but there is a thread about this open already, in the same page. Sorry but this is closed...
