    And I need help spending it. Looking for suggestions on a cool pedal to get. Looking to stay in the $100 range or so.

    TC Electronic Ditto Looper. Last thing I added to my chain. Awesome awesome. Great for learning, practicing, creative ideas and solos.

    Good idea but I already have a looper on my B3. Any others?
  4. If I were you, I'd consider the MXR M80 Bass DI.

    It has a wonderful EQ, multiple outputs, a "color" button to auto-EQ to a surprisingly good sound, which to me, sounds like a modern hi-quality tube amp, and the whole thing also doubles as an adjustable distortion pedal.

    It may be around $110-$120, but it's a quality DI, distortion, and EQ pedal all in one.

    I have an m80 and I highly recommend it as a dirt box/eq, but the magic "color" button is a huge love/hate thing, it's not something that can be universally recommended.
  6. Way Huge Swollen Pickle fuzz ($70-$80), anything made by Danoelectro, almost any clone imaginable can be purchased of the 'Bay it seems these days.
  7. Why don't you tell us what you have before we spout a bunch of things that you have?

    If you don't have a synth I'd say give the BSY-600 a whirl, if you have some money to throw at it. Most people like it more than the Boss variant due to the better tracking and whatnot.

    Don't want to list what I have because someone might not suggest something because I already have something in that category when I may actually like their suggestion better.
  9. Well, here is the list that I would go about getting if I were to buy some pedals, as well as what I own now and would recommend:

    -MXR M80 (Great pre, nice sounding distortion when you get used to it, sits very nice with a band)
    -MXR BOD (REALLY great octave pedal. Mine tracks to the low E on both my Jazz and P bass)
    -EHX Bassballs (Just a really fun pedal, not a one trick pony as some people say)

    -ZVex Basstortion (Love the sound of this thing, will probably be my next dist. pedal)
    -SA BEF/BEF Pro (Really neat pedals and pretty much essential if you ever want to go for the WubWubs)
    -Way Huge Supa-Puss (Analog delay with Tap Tempo?!? Heck to the yes!)

    Never mind. Had to use it to by a new condenser motor for my home ac unit. Darn this responsible life.
