    I've got one. I got one mostly for guitar use. It works fine on bass, and doesn't suck out too much low end, but it's nothing special. Perfectly usable, but not the best by any means. But you can get them off of eBay for $35, so for the money it's hard to beat. Let me know if you have any specific questions.
     
  3. ok thanks, my choice was eithe that or buying the mini danelctro chorus and flangers, but i trust ibanez more, ill probably go to a store and try them out too

    +1. Nice durable unit, sounds good in each mode. Capable of making some pretty freakin bizarre noises if you like that sort of thing. :hyper: It's a bit odd because you can use it as either a chorus or a flanger, but you can't switch between the two without bending over and puttering with the little switches.

    Yeah, I forgot to mention that. If you want BIZARRE, it can do that too. The fact that you can't switch modes without leaning over bugs me.

    I'd go w/it over the Danos.

    Jackson CMJ-20 Bridge MM-style pup (picked) > CF-7 (flanger mode, all settings at 12 o'clock, except for speed, which was at 3 o'clock) > Fender Frontman 25 (flat EQ) > microphone > computer

    There is a wide range of sounds. This one is fairly subtle; you can get a lot deeper flange with it if you play with the settings. These aren't my favorite settings, but I thought they would give you the best idea of the midrange of the unit. There are some nice subtle effects, and some really weird ones, too.
     
  9. that sounded really sweet, ill probably get that pedal, by the way im just curious but wat other pedals do u have?

    I'm not much of an effects guy on bass, but I've got a DOD FX-25b auto-wah, the CF-7, a Boss DS-1, a cheapo Rocktek chorus, and a Yamaha NE-1 pre. The only one I regularly use is the CF-7.
