Victor Wooten's phrase sampler (Bass Day 98)

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by alexssandro, Aug 2, 2000.

  1. Does anybody know what Victor Wooten uses to create layers and play over himself in the Live at Bass Day 98 Video? I feel like this is the perfect tool for practicing improvisation.

    Incidentally, what did Jaco use on his "Honestly" album of bass solos to do the same thing?

    Wooten uses a Lexicon JamMan, an item that's currently discontined. I think Jaco used an echo pedal of some sort, but I could be wrong.

    Check out the "Boomerang". It's REALLY cool! I have the older model with less memory.....and it was cheaper back then. But, I will trade for a new one sometime soon.

    If you have some sort of reverb pedal, you should actually make that "Echo Box" type of sound and then repeat with the Boomerang while you solo Jaco style.
