    Does anybody know what kind of effects Victor Wooten uses?? Like I know a volume pedal and a whammy pedal, but any like tone shaping effects?? I'm sure he does use something, because it doesn't sound perfectly clean, but I'm trying to figure out what he uses!

    I think he likes to use a little reverb at times.
  3. Another misplaced thread, off to effects with you.
  4. I saw him advertizing an Eventide multi effect once, but I bet you can't afford one...:D :D

    When i saw him he used something, a vocal proccessor of some kind, ran it from the bass to his mouth, and when he blew in it, and played the bass at the same time, it gave it a horn sound. Really cool. DOnt know what it was though.

    hmmm...sounds like a heil talk box there...he used to use an ada mb-1 preamp, but that's been ages ago.
  7. Vocoder splicing the signal from his bass with his voice...

    IIRC the mic thing is a breath controller for the MIDI output he has on one of his basses.
