    You are talking about bass multieffect processor mate, not pedallboard :)

    What price range are you looking at?

    haha ok my bad, someone can fix the title please :)?

    the price range or level is more or less the same than the boss me-50b, i cant tell you prices because here in argentina a boss me-50b is about 3200 pesos = 600 dolars, and i dont know how much is this multieffect in USA.

    so if you can say or recommend me pedalboards of more or less range than the me-50b it will be ok :).

    I vote for the ME-50B. I used it as my primary gigging board for 10 years and only recently retired it to "backup" status in favor of a pedal board setup with single pedals. It is dependable (no issues in 10 years despite heavy use) and the basic sounds are of reasonable quality. It's also a bit easier to tweak on the fly than most multi-effects units, in my opinion, due to its heavier reliance on knobs rather than buttons and pre-saved effects.

    I traded my boss gt-6b in for a zoom b3 and have no complaints.

    The zoom b3 or the digitech bp355 are pretty good choices of multi-effects processors. I have sound samples of these multi-effects processors on my soundclick website. here's the link.

    Feel free to check it out.

    I've always been suspicious of multi effects boards but some of these sound really good. I don't think I'll be entirely convinced of the benefits over single effects pedals but the including of a looper on the boss sounds incredible. I'd love to hear a blind test.
