Effect Pedals Ever ?

    As Warwick is all things bass I have been having dreams of Jonas Hellborg inspired/designed effect pedals. I would love to see some high end studio grade quality pedals. In the same vein design concept as the Hellborg amps and preamps with no compromise in the housing or the components. Like compression, overdrive/distortion, envelope filter, synth, octave, preamp EQ D.I. etc… (to get started)

    Has this ever been discussed or acknowledged as an opportunity for Warwick? I even dreamed of them with a little blue LED lit up little “W” (like my Tubepath)on them and of course in black and yellow lettering. Come on Warwick official spill the beans…I need them!:D
  2. Hmmmmm...The look would be similar to MarkBass, and there would be the same essential target market. This is probably why we have not seen 'wick pedals, to date. I'd be intrigued, however, especially if Warwick made their pedals for 9v power. MarkBass pedals are 12v, and not necessarily compatible with a lot of North American boards, like mine, which are 9/18v-oriented. Time and time again, it has been demonstrated that the North American music market should not be ignored (it's where a lot of famous Brit/Euro bands went, to get big), so the challenge is hereby issued to Warwick.

    Great ideas guys! I will be heading over to Germany in 3 weeks, and will certainly present any and all ideas to the design team, as well as Jonas personally. We love to hear what you want...and all feedback is welcome! Thanks!
  4. That's encouraging. One thing that MarkBass has yet to make would be a multi-effect. If Warwick could innovate something to compete with the Zoom B3, it would be a major game-changer.

    Means2nEnd - I talked with Jonas about this, and although there are no definitive plans - he certainly has some ideas and concepts that he's been considering. We'll just have to wait and see what the future holds! Thanks!
  6. Complicating matters is the fact that Warwick Distribution appears to be handling DigiTech, in the USA, as far as I can tell. There might be something in the legalese that could be an inhibitor.

    I'm not sure if Jonas ever even used pedals. I do know that he used a chorus effect for about a year when he was playing his bastardized Crafter bass, but that's about it. You can hear some backward effects on his recording "Kali's Son", but that may have been either a studio trick or the infamous "Green" Line 6 unit - which is famous for adding noise and having shoddy footswitches...

    Anybody seen Jonas using effects? Seems he'd at least use compression.
