    hey everyone

    a friend of mine is obessesed with the uk band, muse. yeah i got to say, they are really good. anyway he was showing me their website and there was a section with they're gear. the inteserting thing that stuck out to me was the frontman's (Mathew Bellamy) guitars. he owns a lot of them. anyway he has a bunch of cutsomized mansons in which there are effects placed in it. its awesome. i've heard of things like this befroe, i think line6 make such a thing. but this is really cool.

    it got me thinking, what if you could have a bass with your choice of effects in it, what would they be? here's mine

    -some kind of fuzz

    but i don't know which name brands i would use. does anyone out there own a bass with built in effects? and one more thing, i don't know whether this belongs in Basses or Effects so my apologizes if this has to be moved.

    Wah? That would be pretty odd to use I would imagine.

    I'd prefer my Wah on the Floor.

    I'd ALWAYS prefer my effects on the floor or in a rack, ANYWHERE but on the instrument itself. Effects come and go, I'd hate to have to change my instrument everytime a better flanger came along. Not to mention I don't want the extra weigh to be carried by my shoulders during a long show when they can be placed on the floor.

    I have an old Chris Squire Bass Video, at one point in the Video he shows all his Basses, and he has one with effcts built in, there is a
    pair of little module's that go in a battery like
    compartment on the back of the Bass, and he has
    several different type's for different effects.
