    OK, I have a few questions:
    First-Im wondering if the bass player from Poison The Well uses any kind of pedals. It sounds like there is some distortion on the songs but Im not sure.

    Secondly-I want to get a pedal tuner but am not sure about which one to get, any recommendations would be helpful.

    Thirdly-Im wondering if it is ok to plug guitar pedals, such as the RP series from Digitech into bass amps. Im not just singling out the Digitech line, Im wondering about almost all gutiar pedals.

    I guess thats alll any information would be helpful. Thanks.

    1- No, I think it's just the sound of an SVT/Ampeg going full (which is an overdriven sound). I'm probably wrong.

    2- The Boss floor tuner is supposed to be rather nice.

    3- By and large, yes, but it won't sound very good since they're built around guitar frequencies.

    1) Dunno, sorry.

    2) BOSS TU-2, they're indestructable, tune accurately and look cool.

    3) Yes, they may not sound as good, or they may sound better. Never be limited by the label on the pedal.

    1) I've seen PTW play 3 times he has no pedals it's just strait to his SVT.
