Ibanez EDB605? comments?+ FX pedals

Discussion in 'Basses [BG]' started by IndieBoy_503, Jul 12, 2001.

  1. I was Looking at a Ibanez EDB605(the 5-string because is always nice to know I have an Extra.) and I was wondering is it a good base? I'm a begginer so I don't know all of the names of the fancy gizmos. for example, what is a humbucker? I also want to know if any bodyknows really good multi effects systems preferably ones with wah, distortion,and synth. Synth just sounds bitchin but i have found it in a multi-effects system, i haven't looked that hard though.
    Thanx in advance :)
  2. A hummbucker is in fact 2 single coils..

    with single coil / split coil, all wrappings of the polepieces, that fetch the vibrations of the string, are wound in the same direction.

    A hummbucker is 2 single coils stuck together, but then the wrappings of the 2nd coil are wound in the opposite direction of the 1st coil..

    hummbucker typically has a very uhm.. " punchy " sound..

    as for the EDB605.. go for it ! the ergodyne series rules
