    Hi I was just wondering if there was a pedal that changes your bass sound into a piano sound? Does this even exist?
    Thanks for your help :D

    yup, you'll need a midi unit. divided pickup on your bass, guitar to midi convertor and sound module to output piano.

    Otherwise, I've found that using a pick right near the bridge while using the neck pup can sound sort of like a grand piano.


    (edit) Hey - I wonder how one of those Boss Acoustic guitar simulators would sound on a bass. Maybe like a piano?

    My advice is to get a (additional) decent playing bass. Doesnt have to be expensive (mainly bcuz u wont be using the pickups anyway) but should @ least play to your likeing. Buy a set of piccalo strings and a roland bass/midi converter. The piccalo strings track much better than standard guage bass strings with little or no delay at all. With that and a decent sounding sound module the rest is history!¡!¡ Hope this helps

    I'm actually trying some bronze acoustic strings on my Kubicki. Could sound close to a piano when slapped...

    I have bronze DR strings on my Ritter Classic and it sounds and looks killer because its accented with the gold hardware. :bassist:
