    Hey, fellow bass-men. I'm considering getting some effects, never had, in 10 years, so I'm a little lost with this. So far I've come to this 3 options. I've seen some reviews, demos, etc.

    The B9, sounds cool, I haven't recognize the effect of the tube, though.
    GT-10B sounds nice and has a ton of functions I would need a couple of weeks to figure out. Also it's very expensive, since they can't ship it to where I live.
    And AX3000B, sounds cool, it looks simple, but not that great.

    I would really appreciate your opinions, if you have heard/tried/own, share your experiences.

    I have sound samples of many multi-effects processors on my soundclick website including the korg ax3000b. here's the link.


    Feel free to check them out. also I would recommend the zoom b3 if you want something portable and have outstanding sound quality.

    I already heard them all. I'm mainly looking to use Flanger and Wah, do you have any samples with the Wah?
    It sounds really good, I liked that flanger (also w/ distortion) and phaser. Thanks for the help, I also watched all those vids with Wooten and Ellefson.
    I might get it for this christmas. You know any sites that would ship worldwide?

    I'd just get the B3.

    AFWIW, the Korg is a great unit - I used one for about 4 years. It's ridiculously cheap to boot.
  6. If you are really shopping for a multi-FX, indeed get a B3. I should exchange my B2 to a B3 but that pesky small red box never breaks down....

    Nice, thanks for the replies. I'm looking for that B3, stores don't have it where I live.

    After all my research, I just ordered a B9.1ut tonight. I looked at the B3 really hard, but I am looking for more control live.
