Best Whammy for Bass

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by ImNotGeddyLee, Nov 27, 2001.


  1. What is the best whammmy for bass...
    i know a lot of people would say: "Digitech Bass Whammy STUPID" but i have actually heard more bad reviews on that unit then good. Also, is there anything that does the job as good/better then digitech? thanx.

    Hey, hmmmmmm the only i have ever heard of is the digitech bass whammy, never seen one for sale though but if you want a real whammy sound and have a sweet enough instrument thats worth putting one on, then i suggest http://members.home.net/porkproducts/home.html this site sells the new Schaller Bass Tremolos like such bassists as Victor Wooten(i'm pretty sure) and Les Claypool(i'm positive) uses. Sorry i don't know any effects units but i hoped my responces helps alittle and i would be interested too in any other bass whammys. Peace out.
     
  3. i plan on getting one of those KHALER trems on my stingray... when i find MY stingray that is.

    When you get your KAHLER bass trem make sure you tell me how it sounds, when i get a nicer bass i want to try one. Peace Out.

    Jens Ritter is one of the very few who developed his own vibrato system.
    I haven't played one of his basses, but I'd guess it works better than the Kahler.
    He does it on multistrings too.

    That ritter trem looks pretty interesting. Too bad he does sell them separately. :( I have only tried a classic Kahler trem on an old rickenbacker that had its frets removed by the previous owner. It seemed to work pretty well, i just didn't get a chance to plug it into an amp cause i was in a hurry and havn't been to Tampa lately to see if its still there.
