    Hi Y'all:

    I am thinking of getting me one of those TECH21 DP-3X dUg Pinnick pedal.

    Will it do me any good??
    Using af Sandberg 4 string bass
    GK R450 head
    Ampeg 8x10 cab
  2. Honestly, I am a huge, huge tech 21 fan and own a ton of their pedals and the DP-3X is an amazing pedal but I don't really think you need it because your GK R450 base tone is so good. I think you'd be better served by getting a nice distortion pedal that either blends in clean or doesn't cut any lows. Might I recommend the Idiotbox Landphil or Blower Box or Fuzzrocious Demon or Cat Tail or Darkglass Alpha/Omega for distortions and if you want fuzz you have a billion great fuzz options from Earthquaker Devices, Fuzzrocious, Wren & Cuff, Earthbound Audio, etc.

    If you're planning on doing any serious home recording I'd get the dUg for sure but GK has a really nice, solid tone that you can build some nice distorted tones over. Honestly it really depends on how heavy the kind of music you are doing is.

    HI Chris:

    Thank you so much for sharing your opinion - I sort of had the feeling it that the pedal might not really add anything to my rig.....
