So, I own an ESP B305, bought it for $370 (~$420 after tax a a fret dressing) and have been playing avidly on it for the last year and a half, and am coming up on my second year of playing bass. I'm mostly self taught besides for some lessons for guitar, which gave me a sort of basic knowledge of music and all that jazz. So I suppose my question is, does it seem absolutely insane to spend $270 on an FX pedal? I'd been doing some research on pedals after falling in love with my uncle's old Ibanez Auto Filter stomp box, and I've been obsessed with getting myself a brand-spanking new filter / synth pedal. Anything to get that funky whap whop sound. I've sort of come to decide the absolute most I'd be willing to spend would be $270 on the WMD Super FatMan. I know I want a filter, I'm not testing the waters, and I want a sort of unique sound. Is it stupid for a guy playing a $370 bass to buy a $270 pedal? Should I wait? I'm not about to buy one tomorrow, but I just want an honest opinion about my price range. Any other pedal would have to be under $170, but this I wouldn't mind shelling out extra money for. So that's my story. Any thoughts?
