    Does anybody know about a good pedal with this function ?
    By good, I mean usable. Well, as much as a ring mod can be.
    Thanks.

    I use a frostwave blue ringer, and it can be VERY musical. Or compleatly atonal... I actualy do have one for sale, but its on its way to David Wilson (for him to sell). If you want a good example of ring mod on bass, listen to Squarepusher's new album Ultravisitor - he usues it on his bass tracks on almost every tune...

    ps. it is also the BEST tremolo I have ever heard...

    Thank's for posting that Mo'Phat I would have done it myself (apart from I forgot) but I'm not at home and don't have that address to hand.

    Can I ask Jazz Ad what situation has called for the use of a ring modulator?
     
  6. I bookmarked that bad boy...it's an awesome link! Thanks for posting it in the first place.
     
  7. I know Electro-Harmonix makes a ring mod. I don't think its specific for bass, but you can use it with one. I saw it advertised in a bass magazine not too long ago...I think it's called The Pulsar. You may want to check it out.

    actualy, the Pulsar is their tremolo pedal. The EHX ring mod is called the Frequency Analyzer.

    cheers

    Alex

    ps. the Frequency Analuzer is the worst ring mod ever made...
