    Hi everyone,

    I haven't been a regular contributor for awhile and I am not up on my multifx units. When I was a regular the Line6 stuff was best or near best and there was the roland V-Bass stuff, but even they have new models.

    I'm thirsty for the electroharmonix hog and pog but those are not multifx in the true sense.

    What's the new latest and the greatest. Once I get some answers I can do a few searches to figure out what everything does and opinions. Oh yeah, throw some new and used prices in with your suggestions.

    Thanks in advance,

    The Zoom B3 and MS60 are well liked, $200 & $100 respectively.

    +1 on the B3
  5. Until I became a pedal-whore, I really liked Line6, too. I'm *stunned* that they never bothered to give bassists anything in their 'new' HD line. I was waiting for an excuse to buy one for years, never got one. Crapped out a toekn portaflex model already years too late, nothing since. Very disappointed.

    If I had to go back to one, honestly I'd probably still pick an X3 Live, especially considering the price you can get them for now. The dual-amp feature with a nice fat bass head and a high gain guitar head can be *heaven*.

  7. B3 for sure-I started fooling around with multiFX boxes about 13 years ago with the zoom bfx-708 and just about everything since then, and the b3 is the first time I used a sub-700 dollar processor that I thought "they finally got it right!"

    +1 on the Zoom MS-60B. Though a B3 would be more practical for gigging. Too bad they don't have B5.

    And then there are the Source Audio pedals, which are a different beast.

    Full disclosure, I'm a certified Fender technician working in a music store that carries Fender, Yamaha, and Ibanez products among others.
    +1 on B3. Cheap, practical, powerful.

    Greatest ATM would probably be the Axe FX II, but it's very pricey.

    For bass, Zoom B3 by a long mile. Nothing comes close so far.

    I enjoyed my Boss GT-6B for a long time but it doesn't get too much love here. You can find one for like 160. I'd recommend giving it a shot.
  19. Get the Zoom B3. You won't be disappointed.
