    I need an effect device that has good distorion and/or overdrive and also has an onboard tuner which would allow me to change tunning in between songs at a live show??
  2. Roland V-Bass, Line6 Variax. That is pretty much the list if you want to change tunings without retuning the actual bass. you could also drive a MIDI rig but I think that the other two choices are better sounding and track better.
  3. what do you mean by changing the tuning? like a pitchshifter type effect? or just a tuner so you can retune your bass yourself?
  4. Yeah, I might have misread the post.

    I'm pretty sure most multi-fx have both of those things, and a lot more. Personally can't recomend one, as I use individual FX.

    My question is: why not get a tuner and a dist separatly. Especially if that's all you need/want...

    You can look in the Distortion MegaThread for some good reviews....

    Tune it myself......no pitchshifter. Multi-effects work but they are sort of annoying.

    I am almost positive that there isn't any distortion pedal with a built in tuner, so you would have to get them separately, which isn't really any more of an extra hassle. Plus if there was one, what are the odds of it actually having the distortion you want, as distortion is easily the most personal effect (sound preference wise), as well as probably the hardest to find the one you like.
