I haven't been playing bass for that long, & I've got a low end Yamaha coming through an Acoustic B200 amp which I'm pretty satisfied with as I nail the basics. However, after playing a Spector thru an Aguilar preamp down at Bass Northwest (http://www.bassnw.com/) the other day, I'm thinking I might like a pedal of some sort that can get me closer to that tubey growl that sounded so delicious coming out of that cab. Not sure if I'm looking for OD, distortion, some fuzz, or preferably a combination of all of them. From the limited research I've done, I've come up with 4 names that I keep seeing come up with great reviews. I am also open to suggestion if your recommendation is not listed as one of the four. I'm looking to keep it under $300 max, preferably around $200 if new, & since I'm in no big hurry I can keep my eyes open for something used as well ... that's more scratch to put towards a new bass in the future THANKS in advance for your input 1) EBS ValveDrive Pro Dual Mode Tube Overdrive 2) Tech 21 Red Ripper Distortion Bass Effects 3) SansAmp BDDI 4) Aguilar Agro Overdrive I couldn't figure out how to work the poll thingy, so just shout 'em out!
