    What about this kind of effects?Do they really increase the quality of the sound?Are they usefull only to get a louder and deeper Low B string,or do they help the overall definition of the sound?Would you suggest to go for them,or not?

    I like mine. It doesn't improve definition, and it doesn't really sound quite like an octaver. But it can add a ton of ballz and chunk to the bottom couple strings.

    Dunno if the MP3's do the effect justice, but if you listen to the track "Never There" on our mp3.com site you can hear me using it on the chorus. If you have a sub hooked up to your computer, that is. I also use it on the live track "The Silent Giants," during the verses and choruses - I'm actually playing that line rooted at the 7th fret of the D string, though it sounds much lower.
