    I really like Midiverbs for Bass. They're originally made for vocals, but I've found they handle bass notes and stuff really well. It'll give you reverbs (for adding depth to your sound), delays (for cool effected parts), chorus, flange, phaser, overdrive, and eq. All of which will effect your tone as much or as little as you want it to.

    example, you say you're in a hard rock band, Guns 'n Roses bassist Duff McKagen used chorus and a little overdrive on his bass...Tim Commerford uses overdrive a lot. I'm not saying this box will give you those guys' sound, but you can do alot with a good multi-effects unit at coming up with your own.
