    Im going to give you my suggestions for price efficient, easy to use , pedals.

    Distortion: Flea uses the Boss ODB-3 in arounid the world. I use it as well. I suggest this.

    Bass wah: flea uses the dunlop crybaby gcb-100. I used this as well.

    Delay (echoy) - Boss dd-3 or something cheaper if you just want to noodle around with it.


    I also suggest the digitech bass synth wah.

  4. Distortion: I like the MXR-M-80 for some nice chainsaw crunch, but for fuzz and light overdrive I like the Boss ODB-3.

    Wah: Jim Dunlop 105Q

    The pedal Flea used in coffee shop was an auto wah, I heard it was a Boss FT-2 Dynamic Filter. I was after one of these for ages, but they go for quite alot as they're old and not made any more. I bought the MXR Bass Auto Q, and it does the job perfectly. for a manual wah I went with the Dunlop 105Q, great pedal. And I also have an ODB3, which (on the right settings after some twiddling) can sound very mucyh like the tone in around the world.

    Good luck in finding what you want mate.

    I just got the DiscumBOBulator for funk and I love it.
     
  10. I am also a fan of the Emma DiscomBOBulator... very smooth & it likes all of my instruments. From my Epiphone Sheraton II, PRS McCarty, Line 6 Variax bass, and anything else I have thrown at it. Very smooth & funky. It is the simpler, cheaper version of a Chunk Agent '00' Funk. I have both & the DiscomBOBulator is very, very similar -- but smoother.

    so it stands for beginner and not bass?

    kool thx ill definitly check out the DiscumBOBulator, thats a crazy name lol, thx guys
     
  12. I was told it stands for Banana, because it's yellow. It may be a beginner pedal, and there are better pedals if you have the money, but I think it is pretty good, though.

    Almost every time you see a "B" on a Boss pedal, it stands for "Bass".
     
  15. Wrong.

    B is for Bacon. Always.

    [drools]mmmm ... bacon.[/drools]
     
  16. i thought i saw an ad for flea endorsing the dunlop 105Q...i'm not sure

    Yep, that's what Flea's using these days.

    The B in ODB stands for Bass.
