Question: Best Bass Effect Pedal

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by Big Ce, Apr 11, 2005.


  1. Whats Shakin!!! :cool:

    I need your help, I am looking for an all around bass effect pedal. I have a Roland Cube 100 amp, and I am looking for something that would work well with it.

    My two Basses are Marcus Miller Jazz Bass, and a Tune Guitar Technology 5 String. Both play very well through the Cube but I want something extra. :cool:

    Need Your advice. Thanks.

    Peace
    Big Ce :bassist:

    What do you want, a definitive answer?

    There isnt one. The closest youll get is maybe something like a Boss GT-6B.

    What kind of music do you play?
    Anyone famous whose sound you like?
    How much can you spend?

    Help us to help you. :)
     
  3. I play some of everything. I also slap aswell ala Marcus Miller. :bassist:

    I hope that helps.

    Much as I love effects, I'll be the first to say it complelty depends on what you want to accomplish. The GT6-B was mentioned in a previous post. The good news is you can do just about anything with that unit. The bad news is your probably not going to use half of the stuff on it.

    The best thing is to go to a music store and try out some stomp boxes one at a time to get a feel as to what they do and how they effect your sound.

    Chorus and/or delay. Hours of fun right there, and terribly cheap.

    Throw in a phaser or flanger to the mix, there's nothing just about you can't do as far as modulation goes.

    Splurge and pick up one of the Line6 Delay or Modulation units. Friggin' amazing.

    Then in which case I say buy used, buy a lot and get a feel for what you like. Sell the ones you dont like without losing money.
     
  8. my suggestion is get a cheap multi effect unit like the BP80. it sounds like you have no idea what you want, and you play everything, so that really leaves a big hole. get a BP80 or something like that, and play around with all the different effects and see what suits you, and focus on getting those.
