    IMO delay sounds better than reverb on bass. But you're really the best judge of that; swing by a music shop that sells pedals and give 'em a try.

    I wouldn't do this, but Guitar Center does have a "30 days, no questions" return policy. A guitarist I know has abused that a couple of times.

    The SMMH has more usability than you might think! There's a table in the manual, and once you get a hang on it, SO simple. Love it! I like just holding the tap tempo whenever, even using a delay setting, starts to record the loop, and you can layer upon layer it!

    Combine the decay knob with the repeats, blend, and filter knobs..and you can just about any kind of decay you could imagine, all the way from a quick one or two repeats, to a long decay, and the upper half of the decay knob lets you do swells!

    I have one FS..because I'm getting ballsy and splurging on an El Capistan..

    And, Tone Factor has a sweet return policy!! but buying used is cheaper, resale value usually sees near complete purchase price
     
  5. With much thought on this. I probably would milk the heck out of delay in the studio or with some tool, but otherwise I wouldn't use it much live except for an occasional reverse delay and the looper. I still think the boomerang III is THE looper to get though. I appreciate all the comments, but until I NEED one, I'll pass.
