    I'M CURIOUS ABOUT THE BASS30, AND WONDER IF IT IS WORTH THE $200.00 PRICE.

    Haven't used one, but they are $160.00 at Mars. If you get one, let us know how you like it.

    I tried the DOD in a music store and didn't like it (sounded a little weak and thin IMO). The Zoom 506 sounds better to me, and costs less too. (I don't believe any multi-effects pedal in this price range is going to sound great.)

    There are some Boss ME-8B's on eBay. Other members on this board seem to like the ME-8B quite a bit (I've never tried one). You might be able to pick-up one of those for around $200. Good luck.

    While I agree with Slater that the Bass30 is a tad thin it does offer exceptional modelling capabilities and ease of use for the price. Not something you want to take into the studio but great for practice, some gigs and experimentation.

    I use the me-8-b but I've never heard a better fretless simulator than the 30. I e-mailed the company and suggested that they build a pedal dedicated solely to their fretless, sell it for 70 bucks and they would sell a million! I also ask if they would send me a cut....anyway, I have and use a nice Jazz fretless so I won't be using the 30.(It smokes the 506 IMO)

    In my opinion, it sucks, and the zoom 506II is much better.. the thing was really complicated to work anyway...
