    So having the boss already (Im a Boss artist fwi) and the TC being super cheap seemed silly not to get one in to compare!

    They sound very close, but the Boss has a little edge on the sound that I prefer.

    For the price, it's an amazing substitute. I just think that if I had the money, I'd go for the boss instead. It has a slightly edgier sound. The TC sounds too "round" if that makes any sense.

    For me the boss has more low end aswell so it’s def the choice for me! Not that I was ever gonna sell it!

    Thanks for sharing the video! Just got the TC a few days ago, and very pleased with it so far.

    In fairness 90% of the time I’m using my moog clusterflux but the Dimension C has a different vibe that works for some parts where the moog is a bit to thick

    I’ve played through both.

    IMO the BOSS has a certain touch of “air “and openness to its sound the TC doesn’t quite capture. That said, the TC is definitely both a good sounding pedal and a really good deal. For live use at stage volume levels you’d never hear the difference.

    Honestly, I get a feeling of "not bad but not enough to make me want to buy them" out of both.
  11. I probably would have gone for the tc if I had heard that demo first. At gig volume the difference would be close to zero, especially in an 8 piece band.

    I use the waza on guitar in a tropical band mind you, I have zero use for it on bass.

    The huge price difference, an actual foot switch and the slightly warmer tone of the 3rd dimension as the clear winner when I was deciding between the two
    Those TC pedals in that line are great for not a lot of money
    If they release their Hyper Fuzz clone in that enclosure I’d be set!

    For me it’s one of those “only does one thing - but does it extremely well” effects. In my case I like precisely one setting on it. But not enough to drop $70 let alone $200 to get it.

    FWIW I personally think most chorus effects work far better with guitar than they do with bass. A flanger will give you a very similar effect for bass while sounding a whole lot better.

  14. I have the Boss... i find it too subtle for my taste, but it sounds great for what it is.

    I think this pedal just KILLS on guitar. Not so much on bass IMO
