Has anyone tried to use the G-Force with a bass?

  1. Now, I dont mean the all around present being G-Force.
    Im talking about the TC-Electronics G-Force. I reckon it would be great for some really spaced out wicked bass sounds. My guitarist is getting one and I cant wait to hear it. Anyone?

    That's one expensive machine. If your guitarist is kind enough to let you try it out, let us know how it sounds.

    I was tantalized by the potential of the G-force when it first came out (I was mostly playing guitar back then), BUT........

    A couple of nights ago I saw a jam/jazz/rock/improv trio called the "Living Daylights"- the bassist used an EBS Multicomp into a TC electronics G-Force, and looped often with a Lexicon JamMan sampler. The truth was, he may have been inserting the G-force into his effects loop, buit there was plenty of low end and overall tone with his setup utilizing the G-Force.

    Check around for the Living Daylights- definitely pioneering bass to a new level live!!

    Good luck-

    Hey...any verdict yet? Unfortunately, Living Daylights is not scheduled to come to Chicago anytime soon.

    I'm starting to get the itch to "effect" my tone! Uh-oh;)

    Never tried it,but TC Electronics doesn't make crappy gear in general.I used to have their chorus pedal and it was great.
