    I've really got to get caught up on EHX's newer offerings. I hadn't even heard about this one. Thankfully they didn't do it with that "next step" design that they use for so many of their expression pedals nowadays. Maybe they're getting the message that almost nobody likes that design.

    I think the MXR '78 Distortion sounds really good in this clip.

    If I were playing in a heavier band, I'd be checking out one of these for sure.

    Yeah the MXR 78 sounded good. I got a MXR Distortion II clone that I really like, sounded similar to the 78 at times.

    Listening to @Bassist4Eris tune the other day, I think I going to get another flanger.....probably just a used Boss for cheap now

    I really liked the way that one song sounded

    Edit: what do you guys think the BF-2 or -3......Im thinking the -2

    I've never tried the 3, but the 2 is really great on bass. In all honesty, the 3 is probably good too. There's always a contingent of people who will insist that the earlier version of everything is better. I wonder how they'd fare in a blindfold test.

    Ha no kidding.....I did do some reading after I made this post and someone said the -2 is analog and -3 is digital

    Honestly I really don't care but most of what I read from bassist's is that they like the -2 better..........good for me because its cheaper

    Technically I had one of these before (the old version) but I just ordered the new version (bought it used) with the LED and new style AC plug.....I wonder if there will be much of a difference

    This may sound strange, but I had some good success with running two dirt pedals at the same time and the last time it worked really good with a Boss pedal I had.

    So it's kinda part of an experiment I'm going to try out

    The Two Notes Le Bass sounds pretty good in this video.

    I can't tell if they're kidding about this or not. I would think it would be cost-prohibitive.

    Some of the marketing language on their website is pretty funny: Hot wax may burn and leave stains or marks on everything you love, so take your guitar off when changing candles. If you're in a hurry, set an ice cube in the candle. There's probably one in your drink. Do not spill wax on crotch. Wax may be removed from clothing using an iron through paper towels, no steam. (I learned this the hard way.) REMOVE PANTS BEFORE IRONING. Clean iron thoroughly after it cools.
