What gadget to buy?

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by Drumming Puggy, Sep 24, 2004.


  1. I am sucker for a gadget.

    I hope to buy my first amp soon. I'm still have to decide between a head unit + speaker cab or get a combi.

    What does anyone recomend me to get (e.g. compresssors, reverb, EQ's or FX's)

    [Cliche but true answer] Get whatever sounds good to you, nobody on here can tell you what to buy, you may want nothing at all [/Cliche but true answer]


    However:

    Many people (including me) use a DI box to go through the PA, loads of options for you to try out, anywhere from $100-$5000+

    What kind of music do you play?

  3. What kind of music do I play? Well, I am a major newbie on the bass. I am still learning and only have a practice amp.

    I like funk and rock.

    I'd recommend saving money on gadgets to get a better amp.
    An eBow will make a remarkable gadget.

    Gotta agree then. Save your money and buy a more powerful amp. :bassist:
