    Hi folks - Am playing in the band for the musical Rent in April
    was wondering if anyone could suggest a good multi effects unit such as the line 6 bass pod etc?
    Cheers

    Is this some sort of High School production?

    Honestly, my girlfriend is obsessed with Rent, I've been through the music a lot, and I've never noticed a need for multi-fx. Just run straight to your amp, you won't be missing anything.

    Forget Multi-FX:

    Chain together as many MXR Micro Amps as you possibly can run that into the highest-gain amp you can find and crank all the knobs to maxxxxxxxxxxxx :D :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eek: :eyebrow:

































    Seriously now, why would you need a multi-FX for a musical, isn't all the music orchestral???? (ie. useing acoustic instruments such as the UPRIGHT bass)

    Nope, some are more rock oriented a la Footloose, Rent and a few others.

    I've played in plenty of pits, everywhere from classical style music in Sound of Music to rock in Footloose.
