So I've done a search and can't find anything relevant that's under a year and a half old, so I figured I call in for an update and see what all my fella TB'ers are doing. The pedals in question are: -VFE Bumblebee -BYOC Lazy Sprocket -Guyatone SVm5 -Malekko Omicron AD I'm looking for a basic standalone unit that does this function to the standards of us tone junkies. I obviously don't want to spend $400 on a Boss Slow Gear, I have a Micro POG and am not really interested in dropping it push for a POG2. I already have a versatile setup for volume swells with my volume pedal, 2 delays, and 2 reverbs. I'm not looking to use an ebow for ridding the sound of an attack, but I do plan on stacking FX to get a cello and/or bass sound when I so desire. There's not an extremely wide array of information on pedals like these as they are very specific and the effect they do is often emulated with volume pedals/knobs, reverse delays, compression tricks and playing techniques. After researching on HOW people get delayed attack and bow sounds, I've narrowed my search to a few pedals that I think might do the trick. I play a lot of ambient/experimental music, and sometimes the sweep of volume pedal is not quick enough and the reverse delay on my RV-3 comes with a pre-determined reverb sound that isn't always needed. So I'm looking for something a little more at the 'quicker' end of the attack spectrum. So far, I like the pedals above for different reasons. But as bassists, there's always a slight crutch when using guitar FX and it often takes one of us to take a leap of faith to experiment with FX that won't possibly work for bass. So I need your opinions. I like the VFE Bumblebee for it's seemingly versatile approach with adding compression for sustain, which would really come in handy when pursuing a more orchestrated sound, plus VFE has a great reputation as quality company(Made in the US). I like the price tag of the BYOC and it's supposed emulation of the original Boss circuit, also building my first pedal sounds kinda fun. I like the Guyatone and Malekko for their extremely small footprint and great reputation as well. The Guyatone has been mentioned just as much as the Behringer when being compared to the Slow Gear. Any and all opinions are greatly appreciated, even if there's some pedals I'm not aware of that might fit my needs. Cheers EDIT: I'm also anxious to hear what people didn't like about certain pedals as well.
