    I was thinking about getting a Micro Bass Synth from Electro Harmonics and I was wondering if anybody has one or has ever used one. It's alot of money , and I would hate to waste my hard earned cash. I noticed on another thread that someone put an address for Lovetone pedals and they look very tempting as well, any word or advice on this brand?

    thanks,
    chad

    chad,

    though it really depends on what you are looking for the pedal to do, because if you just want an ev filter/fuzz, there's cheaper ways to do it-

    check out the new Line 6 fm 4...it takes even more time to figure out then the EH, but is better sounding and more versatile, especially if you are into Jah Wobble and Bill Laswell dub tones..I have made a few patches that are powerfully SUB harmonic-Email me.

    jp -had both, have one now.

    I played on the guitar one with my bass and it sounded awesome. If I had the money I'd buy one right now (the bass one, not the guitar one)!! My only beef is that it only runs on an adapter, and sometimes that's just not applicable.

    I have an Akai DeepImpact bass synth pedal and am really happy with the tones I get out of it. Very versatile, true bypass (very cool), and a lot of control over the sound. Definitely a very good pedal to check out. I have not a/b'd it verse anything else though.
