    ok, mu father just told me he will import an amp from musician frienes, so this could be my chance to order those pedals thet are imposible to get in uruguay, and since im building my pedalboard, i have to take advantage of this opportunity.

    1st of all, anyone has experience with this?:

    http://www.music123.com/Godlyke-PA9-Power-All-Power-Supply-i86567.music

    it says it wirks frim 120 to 240 volts, so i wont need a transformer here in uruguay, and i suppose it helps a lot if i use various pedals. is it worth buying?

    also, what about the digitech whammy? what does it do exactly?

    http://www.music123.com/Digitech-Whammy-4-i41196.music

    what other crazy-psycodelic-space.like effect can you recomend me?

    something with lots of parameters to change and filters and whatever may sound wicked.

    ive been navagating music123.com and found some stuff:

    like the ebow, can i use it with the bass? what result will i have?

    http://www.music123.com/Digitech-Whammy-4-i41196.music

    and finnaly electro-harmonix stuff, which i know VERY little and everyone talks about, which pedal do you recomend me and why? theres a lot of them, but i havnt have the chabce to try anyone here.....

    well thancks a lot!
    hope you can help me out a little

    The Godlyke is a great adapter, I use the same thing by a different manufacturer. As far as usable in Uraguay, I couldn't tell you.

    The Digitech Whammy is a pitch shifter, with the rocking of the pedal, you can adjust the pitch that comes out of the pedal in relation to the note you're playing. i.e. octaves, fifths above or below what you're really playing.

    The eBow isn't too great on a bass in my opinion, the small motor has a big string to move, so it's not too loud. It's optimized for electric guitar.

    As far as the Electro-Harmonix effects, you're looking for crazy-psychadelic-spacey effects, go for a Q-Tron or a Mini Q-Tron (envelope filters) or a Bass Microsynthesizer (bass synthesizer, like Bootsy Collins)
