    i play in a 3 piece rock band
    my guitarist has a fair few effects, multi effect thing, marshall jackhammer, BOSS Fuzz etc.
    at present i just have a BOSS DS-2 Turbo Distortion with a remote footswitch, but im looking to add more things. i know im going to get a simple volume pedal at some point.possibly a bass overdrive too. what makes, models and types can anyone reccommend? not just of the overdrive, but of anything that would fit for a 3 piece band.
    obviously there could be so many, i dont want anything to obscure or strange! just something yo think should be easily accesible at a local music store

    all opions welcome, will consider everyone. thanks very much
  2. I recently picked up a digitech BP50 for $60. Brand new in the box. Has more effects than I'll ever need, and 80 programmable presets. It's a good deal, and alot of fun.

    oke ill post it so no one else needs to post it :bag:

    it all depends on what kind of music you play.

    i think sinceyou have the boss DS youre into heavy music.

    well... i have the boss ODB-3. I think its great. its not the most distortion kind of pedal out there but can get you some nice fairly clean but still some sort of biting sound.

    i also have the big muff pi. its amazing. period.:ninja:

    Go to your local music store and try them out. Go with whatever you 'know' you can use in your songs.

    Also try searching here... there's tons of threads covering the same things.

    But essentially "you're the one who has to use them and without knowing what you need/want/will use you're only wasting money"

  10. The digitech is a good place to start. I had a Digitech BP200 (@ $159) that gets you alot of effects and some amp mod-ing and such. I eventually upgraded to the Line 6.

    I think it's uncommon in US English, but in widespread use in the UK and elsewhere. I've seen it questioned before by Americans on the internets, so it's not just you.



  14. Which picture? I see "LISTEN" in the picture...

    if you are going for a volume pedal make sure you research it before you buy. As far as EB Volume Pedal Jr. I almost blindly bought one not realizing that It is recommended that I use the 25k version (not 250k) due to using active basses. My understanding is that you want the 25k version as well if you plan on using it post FX. Someone correct me or back me up on that one.

    The Boss Turbo Distortion sucks your low end and is only just about useful in Turbo I mode. I recommend selling that and get something else. If money is tight, the Digitech Bad Monkey is a great pedal. If you want more fuzz try a Bass Big Muff. Just search a bit and you'll find loads of recomendations as well as sound clips (check the Wiki link at the top of the page).

    being a guitar pedal i know its not good for the low end, thats not what its made to do. i like using it for covering muse, use turbo II for Hysteria. it works for me, i like it. not having a rhythm guitarist it can add some extra "oomph" to the guitar

    do people reccomend getting some multi-FX pedals then???
    money isnt really an issue but i dont want to spend massive amounts of money.

    keep adding some more ideas please people, thanks so far =]

    thanks for that bit of info, i wouldnt have thought of that.
    i am using an active bass so i would need the 25k version, as i will also use it post FX
    ill check around the net, but im sure your right. may well hav made teh same mistake as you. was thinking of getting a BOSS one, so i can get a standard boss pedalboard. presume that will also need to comply with an active bass.
    thanks again =]

    I'm going to say.

    EBS Multidrive, can go from fuzz to subtle drive, awesome pedal.
  20. Get a tone hammer, it's great for gigging with. Good DI and decent overdrive.
