    I was looking at some synthesizer and chorus pedalson the net, but i wasnt sure what ones i wanted to get. What is a better pedal to get: the ibanez sb7 synth pedal or the boss ceb-3 bass chorus? Or which brand is a better buy in pedals in general?

    Chorus is kind of a subtle effect, which can be good or bad, depending on your mindset as a bassist.

    The SB-7 is more of an over-the-top pedal, and judging by your screen name, :D;) would probably be more of what you're looking for.

    The SB-7, I've heard, is a great value for your money.

    Boss pedals are some of the most reliable pedals you're going to find.

    But of course, your ears will always be a better judge than some guy posting on a message board. See if you can try the pedals out at a local music store before you buy them.

    I personally think the SB-7 is too over the top, I can't see any use for it in anything but industrial/techno, which you'd probably use a keyboard synth for. It's cool to playu around with and maybe doing something wierd at a gig, but I couldn't see myself ever recording with it.

    i like SB-7, but i'm an industrial nut, so it might not be what you want. try em both and see what you like.

    if you like the SB-7 you'd like the PD7 Phat-Hed more, I have it, it's great!

    Are you talking of the small DAnelectros?

    I was wondering, cause my Danelectro Cool Cat is built like a tank and works flawlessly for years now.

    Yes thats what i meant! The little smurg critters they put out! HORRIBLE JUNK! I get so sick and tired of people bringing them in so i have to work on them! I think dan co. uses the worst soldier in the world! Always popping off! And the actuall button will crack through the bottum plastic! Ive been trying to tell the guys who own the music store to stop selling them but there only in it for the money! And i find alot of guitar players will buy those instead of spending a little more for the dods!
  9. I used to have a danelectro pedal.. kicked it smooth in 2 shards on the first gig.. :D
  10. if i had to chose one of these two pedals it would definetly be the chorus but it really depends on what sound you are going for... in general i would DEFINETLY chose Boss pedals over the Ibanez pedals (except for the old tubescreamers) but you should know that there are much much better products out there besides boss ibanez danelectro and dod.
  11. I just ordered an SB-7, so I'll let everyone know how I like it when it comes. I can't wait. I got an MXR M-80, too. I'm gonna have so much fun.:D

    If you can find an Akai Deep Impact synth pedal, those are real nice - not noisy either.
