    I am craving a new effect, but am not sure what to try.

    I am currently running:
    Dunlop BassWah (the white one)
    Boss Bass Chorus
    MXR Phase 90
    Ibanez SB-7 Bass Syth
    Big Muff Pi

    I have tried and tossed (or sold) the following with no success:
    Octabass (tracking was horrid for me)
    Boss BassSynth (again, tracking was terrible)
    Boss BassOverdrive (ok, but the Big Muff is awesome)

    Any suggestions? Am I missing something crucial? I play everything from metal, to blues, to rock...

    I know this is really open ended, but you know how it gets when you have money to burn.

    Get yourself a Flanger... Boss BF-2 worked wonders for my tone!

    I had three at one point or another. I have none now. Do the math.

    I found them very not useful for my style, if you're playing something funky they're great, but I never found the use.
