    I need some advice please. I'm considering to make a purchase of one of these: the Zoom BFX 708 Bass pedal ($159.99), the DOD Bass 30 Processor ($159.99), or the Tech-21 Bass Compactor ($99.99).

    If anyone has tried them all or at least one, tell me your opinion and which one should I buy.

    Welcome to the board, AfroMan.

    The three effects you describe are quite different from one another. My understanding is that the bass compactor is a very good bass compressor, while the other units are multi-effect processors. It would be helpful if you told us what kind of sound you're looking for and what you're trying to achieve. Also, what kind of music you play.

    I didn't check to see if your profile has been filled yet, but if it isn't take a minute to add some info. It can be very helpful.
