  2. "Plooking"?-Zappa fan perhaps?

    Why not try an effects processor?Like a ZOOM or someother multi effects unit?it may be cheaper than buying a plook-load of pedals...

    my setup:

    bass--->ibanez pd7 dist.--->ibanez soundtank bass chorus--->boss bass flanger--->amp

    also, ive got a tube works blue tube II in the FX loop of my amp that runs all the time, with about a 60% wet to dry mix...i like the tubey sound

    no pics though, sorry...


    i havent really tried a lot of pedals. i started with an all boss setup (odb3? and whatever the boss bass chorus is), but i could never find a tone out of either that was what i was looking for. so i picked up the phat hed and really like it a lot. doesnt seem to eat too much of the low end out of my tone. and the soundtank chorus was more mistake than anything else. i was in a used shop and thinking about gadgets i didnt need but wanted. tried out a used pedal (the soundtank) and just really liked it.


    im sure there are better pedals out there, but for the money those are the best ive found.
     
  4. yeah ive tried a lot of those but i have never really found the quality i was looking for and i like stomp boxes because they can much more easily be combined with other effects witgh a/b stuff
