    I have had one for years. Get the old one if you can find it. It is awsome for bass. All the harmonies and pitch benders track very well. It has a good sounding octave that shifts from 1 octave down to 1 up, killer! The whas are not geared towards bass, but, who needs a guitar wha anyway. I would recomend it without reservation.
  2. what about that Bass Whammy that was out a while ago? Still available?...any good?... better off just getting a normal one?...
    real time expression pedal pitch bending is the only thing i miss from my zoom 506... it did a poor job of it but damn was it fun.

    I had a bass whammy several years ago, and it was crap. It had a VERY thin black plastic outer casing that flexed when you stepped on it. If you stepped too hard on the pedal, the signal would glitch and cut out.

    I didn't think it tracked in tune at all, and was only good for wild dive-bomb sound effects, as opposed to anything that could remotely be called musical expression.
