    I think alot of the subtley of effect would be lost on bass. When I was demoing one I noticed the effect would range from all manner of distortion and light overdrive to synth sounding settings. It also could be set from almost unnoticable settings to almost completely useless settings.

    If I was in the market for a bass friendly synth-distortion box I would be way more interested in the Crowther Prunes and Custard than the Tube Zipper.

    Synth? Well don't rule out Moog and Lovetone.

    Good luck finding what you want.

    abark000 (or ANYONE else, lol)...

    I'm definately looking for synth.

    Moog: MF-103? -105? All Moog stuff?

    Lovetone: Meatball?

    Crother Prunes / Custard: Who makes these? They are synths?

    What about the Line6 FM-4? Think it would handle bass reasonably well?

    Thanks.

    I like my cheap Ibanez Bass Synth, but it might not be what you are looking for. The Boss Synth had some good settings but I never found any great settings for it.

    I have heard good things about Moog, but I've never played through one. The Meatball is a insane enevelope filter that supposedly triggers "love it or hate it" responses, very little middle ground with that one. High price tag is another reason many might avoid it.

    I have no idea about the Line 6 thingy. I have also the Chunk Systems 00Funk is an amazing enevelope filter.


    Good luck.

    ok, is there any other pedal/effect with filters to control?

    im looking for a synth (or any other cool effect with filters).

    is the electro harmonix tube zipper a good synth? does it sound wierd? space-y? psycodelic?


    what other pedal or synth would you recomend me with filter control?

    Just a heads up - I've got a Zipper up in the for sale forum. It is indeed very synthy, weird, spacey, psychedelic and some other things too. Sorry I can't get you any clips...

    Hehe - you know you want it.
    About the power - no brick or Onespot here. It uses the weirdest power supply I've ever seen in my life. The tip of the plug is just bizarre - I wonder if it's the same style as the Muff'n or their other pedals with tubes?
