    Thanks :D
     
  2. Needs more fuzz!!!

    Why the DD-3 specifcally? I'm looking for a delay also, wondering why you'd go for that specific model.

    American pedals in Australia seem to cost a fortune. There was a guy a couple of months ago saying he'd seen prices from $600-$900 for a Bass Micro Synth. I think he ended up buying one from the UK because it worked out cheaper.
     
  7. Unfortunately not in Australia :(
     
  8. Umm, dont know to be honest, just because it's cheap. Now that you've brought it to my attention I might try the Holy Grail by EHX, there is no such thing as too much Electro Harmonix :p

    Why a Small Stone and a Boss phaser? I'd get rid of one or the other. If it were me, I'd get rid of the Boss. Small Stone kicks the Boss' ass ;) I guess you could make a case for the Boss instead. It has the different sweeps and is a bit more controllable. But the Stone has the perfect phase shift.

  11. Give the MI Audio pedals a look - I love them. Their dirt pedals stack so well with others IMO.

    Also, check out Morrison from tassie.

    (shameless plug)
    I have one of their phaser's - a very nice True bypass pedal, works well with active bass in the vein of an mxr phase 90.
    They're one of only a few dirt cheap pedal builder's in OZ.
    And yes - he uses proper 3pdt's, chassis mounted metal jacks etc.

    Here's a list of aussie pedal maker's. It's not all of them, but quite a few.

    As far as filter's go - check out the Chunk 00 Funk and Frostwave Funk-a-Duck if you can. Us aussies do have a few good filter's if you can find them.;)
     
  12. Maybe I am missing something but with all those single pedals what else will the Bass Pod offer you? The modeling? Also have you tried all those pedals? Personally i found the EBS BassIQ a little tame. Maybe I didn't spend enough time with it. :meh:

    I just got the EHX BMS XO and am really digging it! Funner than a sack of rabid skunks!

    Why the talk box? You are aware that the bass sound will come out of the tube and need to be mic'd in a gig situation right? It's not a normal effect.
