line6 distortion modeller?

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by desdinovabass, Nov 30, 2004.

  1. i'm currently looking into buying a line6 distortion modeller because i'm finding myself needing more than one dirty sound in a song for dynamics and such and my first thought was just getting a bunch of single distortion/ overdrive boxes but putting more thought into it i'd really rather have everything in one box, and after adding up the prices on them the line6 unit would be the better deal, but i have a few questions about using this unit with a bass guitar: would it be able to handle a a low c without farting out too much? and how badly would i loose low end clarity? and how do the modeled distortion sounds compare to the real life ones?

    basically what is your general impression of this effect unit?

    What kind of sound are you looking for? Do you have a specific example?

    I suggest checking out info on a Fulltone bass driver. It has two switches for different levels of distortion. It is definitely the highest rated pedal on here.
  3. i'm looking for a range of sounds anything from a light crunch to a thick fuzz

    ::edit:: what's the price on that fulltone bass driver?
