    Does anyone use any of these EHX pedals for bass?

    I have been looking at:

    Small stone & wiggler.

    i am already looking to get a bassballs and some kind of distortion, probably a Rat. I also wanted to know what chorus and flange pedals were good for a kind of modern rock/funky sound,

    cheers

    small stone isnt great. it sucks out my bottom end (both sides of the double entendre meant there!).

    the wiggler is kinda fun, but not something youll us on every song. use it on an into or a bit off bass bridging and the audience will goo "oooooo" use it twice in the same set and theyll go "bleh"

    as far as i can tell youd be better off with a big muff, sans amp bass driver, or the fulltone distortion box. or just have one custome made like me (/gloating off)

    Ah, cool

    Are there any other modulation/filter effects that may be better than this. Maybe something more subtle that could be used more often, or something with a wide-range of modulation??

    Also, which chorus and flangers are good?

    thanks

    it depends on your budget, and what particularly you want.

    seems like you might want to try an envelope follower filter? they go from simple dod boxes at about $50 through to EHX q-tron+ at about $150 (which is EXCELLENT) and then your in the reigns of the Z-vex offering and the Lovetone meatballup around $300 :)

    You could try a manual wah... the crybaby 105q is the proverbial pitbulls plums...

    think on what your budget is :)
