  1. Alright, im real new to the bass experiance and now i want to dwelve into the realm of effects to add to my play time. I want something that will be good quality, decent price (nothing over the top expensive), and has some good effects to it.

    Some suggestions on names and models would behelpful where my knowledge of this is nil. price range is nothing more than really $200 canadian for now.

    well...my first effects pedal was a zoom 506II.
    u can prolly get one for 80 bux(US).
    but it has 33 effects...they are cheesy sounding...but it gives u a good idea on what kinda effects ur gonna like and dislike.

    for example...i liked all the flanger, delay, and pitch shifter effects, i didnt like the distortions, the synths, and octaves too much.

    So now im going to most likely upgrade to analog flanger and delay pedals.
     
  3. Multi effects are good to start out on, but only as a reference in quality and applications.
     
  4. stay away from multieffects and there is a very similar topic a little ways down the list.
