  1. Well im not to happy with what i hear about the drive mode of the Boss OC-3.

    So i want to know about other effects.

    I have good Distortion, OD, EQ, and wah so thats out of the question.

    I was kinda thinking of the Boss DD-3, I know timmy c uses or used it.

    Thats somthing im big on hearing about if someone has any sound samples of delay w/ distortion it would be cool if you could post those.

    What about a compressr, a synth, a chorus/flanger/phaser? The digitech bass synth wah can get a good variety of sounds I believe, and it includes a decent octave sound..
  4. I'm rediscovering my love for compression. Jammed at a party the other night with my DBX set for maximum attack. Mmmmmmm, popage! :bassist:

    I'd also vote for a chorus/detune effect.

    DD-3 is old, don't waste your time. Consider something more modern like a Headrush or the new Boss line...
    ...or something retro-hip like an Ibanez AD-9 reissue or vintage DM-2.

    Boss Bass Synth blows chunks. :D

    You might want to try some echo or modulation effects. Chori, flangers, phasers, delay etc. etc.

    DD-3 might work. But then again, you gave us no info. If you said "I would like a chorus in the 50-150 dollar price range", we might be able to help more.
  7. i dont really know what i would want, i just dont wanna spend more than like 130$ usa. thats why im asking yall to recomemd me a pedal. the only thing i have been looking at is delay.
