Effects???

  1. hello, i got a question for all of you...
    i've played on (my dad's) guitar amp for like 7 months, i couldn't afford to get bass amp. i just got a brand new peavey basic 112, i love it but there is no distortion like on the other peavey guitar amp i was playing... the guy at the store told me i could buy a foot thing to switch off and on... is that true and what kind would you suggest for the best distortion..and how much would they be?

    thank you ~
     
  2. Well, the "foot thing" is called a pedal. There are many Bass Overdrive pedals available. As I have only tried a few, I would reccomend to you the BOSS ODB-3, wich is very versatile and produces a warm tone.
     
  3. I second that.
    the ODB-3 is sweeeeet :D

    You're talking about two different things here guys.
    One is a separate FX pedal, e.g. distortion, the other is just a footswitch that switches internal channels, boosts or FX (loops) of the guitar amp.
