    If my lead guitarist saw this post, he'd kill me.
    We have a country-rockish type band: some pop, some acoustic, some Neil Young jams.
    I play a Dano (sometimes a Jasmine ABG) through a Ampeg R100.
    it sounds good but maybe there's room for something different.
    I have a Dano guitar fuzzbox (i forget which one) but i've never tried the bass through it. I think i read somewhere it could damage it. Can it?
    Anyway what would be a good bass pedal in the less than $50 range? What woud it do? I dotn need much but im looking for something.

    Can a bass damage a guitar pedal? Yes, but only under extreme consequences: It'll probably only be a problem if you're using a 27 volt preamp on a bass with a very hot signal and you're boosting it several times.

    Use that fuzzbox if it sounds good. My favorite pedal is a DOD Overdrive 250 ($40 new if you want to try one) There are soundclips by Tecx somewhere around here.

    Ok the Dano Pastrami sounds like I broke the speaker.
    What would a compressor do and are there any out there below $50 worth getting?

    Cheap effect? If you are using finger-style, try a pick. 25 cents. If you use a pick, try finger style. Or try using your thumb, not for slap, but for picking, old-school style. Costs you nothing.
