    I was ust fiddling around with my zoom bfx, and was messin with the ring mod, and it rocks. I really like it. I thought it was useless, but it is pretty cool. Anyone else use it? Any recordings with it?

    I just started messing around with the ring modulator in my Boss GX-700. It's an attention getter, for sure.

    As far as recordings, Jan Hammer with Mahavishnu is the classic example. Keys, not bass, but...

    I have really been fiddling with it a lot more than just about anything else. I just wish I had a good active band to use it with. Oh well.

    I use Ring Mod on my line 6, and have it dialed in as a rubbery fuzz. I posted the settings for said sound on a separate Effects thread, but nobody apparently tried it out or commented on it...

    Damn, I may have to keep this line 6 pedal after all, just for that sound. heh.

    The moogerfooger ring mod tracks great on bass. It interacts well with the low pass filter too. Cool stuff.
