    what is the best multi effects system for bass???
    price isn't a factor in this question, I want to know the absolute best on available...any ideas???
  2. go to GC or some other large music store. Try out every effect you can and buy a whole lot of them. Make/buy a nice pedal board.

    I myself have been looking far into the T.C. Electronic G-force. It is THE most advanced and dynamic effects processor I know. Combine it with a preamp of your choice and you'll NEVER be suffering from G.A.S. again!

    Ok...how about the Eventide Eclipse...
    or the TC M-One (a great processor for bass...and it completely smashes the Lexicon MPX500)
    and, lest we forget the TC G-Force, or the Fireworks (if you really wanna mangle things) and the venerable Lexicon MPX-G2.
    Those are my picks!

    For those of you who vote TC Electronics G-Force, how does the G-Major compare, other than the fact that it's a fraction of the price of a G-Force?
  8. The G-major is no match for the G-force. In the end, you get what you pay for. The G-force has a graphical display and you can hook everything to everything, even control effects by the pitch you're playing, LFOs, envelope control, in/ou routing, etc. etc.
  9. GAS!

    how much one of these G-Force thingies go for anyway... i imagine i will never afford one. And I imagine they hold up just fine on bass...

    I think the G-Force is about $1,450 at MF, and the G Major is a bout $500 or so. Expensive, but not as bad as you might think. Hopefully I'll be able to get the G-Force one day. I don't know when that day is going to come by, but I know it will! Or at least it better....:mad:
  11. The TC Electronic FireworX is the improved G-force. Dunno about the price, but it has about the same features as the G-Force, and then some. I imagine it's cheaper, as digital technology gets cheaper every month.

    By the way, The G-major has a much better bang-fer-yer-buck than the G-force or the FireworX, even if it has less capabilities.

    Im looking at the TC Electronics site and the G-Force and what not, and they all say for guitar, none say bass, whats the deal here?
  13. In what way are bass effects different from guitar effects? I mean, with the capabilities of the G-force or the FireworX, the line becomes VERY thin. Those two processor can do ANYTHING, so all you do is tweak it until it sounds good. Be it bass, guitar, or vocals, or violin, or kazoo, or tree trunk, or...

    General remark to all who posted in this thread: did you know that Eventide and T.C. Electronic are the same company? Just take a look at the typefaces.
