I dunno... I'm not convinced that ANY effect, even if it is the holy grail of whatever type it is is worth that... I'd like a mutron, but what makes it worth that dough that could be spent on other more valuable gear or non bass stuff... Unless you have the house, car, bass(es), and amp of your dreams, how do you justify this much on effects. I don't want to put anyone down for spending this, but I just want to know why/how... btw. Those of you with a real mutron (mad sub?) can you record a sample of some of it's sounds to show me exactly what it sounds like? I've never just heard one used alone.
