    hello, i seen that musiciansfriend has 4 digitech bass effect pedals on sale right now,and also at a local music store they have a digitech bp8 effect board(149bux,used) ,question:are digitech effects decent? are they worth the price? and also i read? that digitech makes boss stuff or vice versa?,any info..i am considering in maybe getting either the single digitech chorus or synth wah($79each:MF price) or the board multi-effect($149)... and also what is a synth wah?(envelope filter)?i am not real big on effects but i was just wondering... thanx in advance.... :cool:

    Roland makes Boss. Try the Digitech BP200, it's a pretty cool unit, mine's working out great!
     
  3. I just bought their bass driver overdrive/distortion and I realy like it their is alot of options for tone and it was the sound I was looking for. But just go try the effects you want ,if you can

    mars music (and probably guitar center) carry those newfangled digitechs (digitech used to make "dod" pedals).

    i tried the digitech delay. it sounded very good, but i'd need to run it through my rig to give it a proper review. don't know how much tone it'd suck, but i liked the way the repeats sounded; none of that "click, click, click" bull like on the digital boss delays.
     
  5. they ALSO make GREAT bass whammys (hint hint)
