    Anybody have any opinions of the Zoom BFX-708? Many say bass effects are only used to cover-up amatuer, sloppy playing...whatever.

    For the price, this is a good multieffects pedal to have. Some of the effects are nice, especially the chorus effects. With the built-in drums, it is great for practice. It cannot compare with more professional equipment, but hey, if you are on a tight budget, go for this.

    tangelwood has a nicer ring to it, and not every one on this site is from the states. do the basses look the same tangelwood/cort/tanglewood/cort??

  8. The zoom pedals do great things for a cort. I have a 506 II and cort performer and u put some octave, edge distortion and compression on it and u get the nicest tone. I'd love to see what that can do for a stingray or jazz.
     
  9. my opinion that anything zoom is pretty much completely worthless.
