Got a Korg AX1B. Thoughts?

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by bassplayer7770, Nov 7, 2003.

  1. I recently purchased a Korg AX1B. I just got it yesterday, so I haven't had a chance to play with it much, but I used the tuner for my gig last night!:D :bassist: Anyway, what are your thoughts on this pedal? I got it for $60 used. Heck, just the tuner and metronome almost make it worth the money!

    Do any of you think that Bypass on this pedal negatively affects the tone?

    It does suck a fair bit of tone. (JazzAd suggested that creating a blank patch was actually better than bypassing...)
    But I chain it through a Looper pedal as I do most of my tone-sucking effects. So that solves that.

    Apart from that, as you'll discover, you've just bought a very versatile and surprisingly efficient and clean sounding multi-effect pedal.
    Definitely the best buy for the buck.

    I believe it's still always better to get specialized pedals for effects you use very regularly. But the AX1B is the perfect single tool to handle all the rest.

    It takes a bit of low and punch away, especially with passive basses.
    Now, it's not really a negative impact. You only notice it when you use a real bypass instead.
