    I really wanted a good wah, but the dude at GC informed me that all the wahs are pretty crappy for bass.

    So he talked me in to that.

    I haven't found any cool settings except for the factory reccomended ones, which are pretty decent. My band has a few songs that it should be pretty cool with. And by a few I mean 3.

    Anyways...

    Now i have that and a sansamp 3 channel.... what should i get next for fun?
     
  2. Buy effects from other places besides GC. There are several awesome wahs for bass. Use the search function on here. Type in key words. Click on threads that seem like they are applicable. Watch Youtube demos. Pay attention to the classifeds here. You will find some fun.

    The guy who said wahs are crappy for bass was a fool. There are plenty if nice wahs (Morley, Wilson, etc.) that sound even better suited for bass than guitar, IMO, if course.

    With the Carbon Copy, I would play around with the settings to find what you want. It's a very diverse and crazy sounding pedal when set right.

    I would recommend starting a hunt for a good fuzz next. What kind of music do you play?

    He said all the wahs are pretty much useless in the lower registers?

  6. That guy is a DOUCHE. I use a Gig-FX Subwah. It is made for extra low frequencies.

    I recommend the Wilson Freaker, though my weapon of choice will always be the Morley Power Wah Boost. But yeah, check out some envelope filters if you like Dub sounds, and some fuzzes to add some raunch.
     
  8. Low Pass Filters for dub that caves in people's chests.
     
  9. As a general rule, I do the opposite of what G.C. folks recommend.

    Whoever told you that was a slack-jawed moron. I've got a Crybaby 105Q Bass Wah that sounds great all the way down to the B string. I don't see how a delay unit would be a suitable substitute for a wah. You should look at an envelope filter, but that's a long strange path to wander down, you may find yourself lost in the wilderness of envelope filters seeking the holy grail.
