look at the Fuzz factory by Zvex. (it works on bass)

Or even Caitlenbread pedals, i think the V8 pedal works for bass too.

z vex makes a bass counterpart for the fuzz factory, it's like the wooly mammoth or something

the wooly mammoth is nothing like the fuzz factory - it is a much more conventional fuzz (the mammoth) with a much thicker tone - much more bass.

the fuzz factory has a dramatic bass cut, on the other hand, so you'll get interesting yet probably unusable (for live work) sounds out of it, unless you're prepared to change a couple of caps in it to add bass, which is worth doing anyway really.

The long and short is to not use a guitar distortion unless you like having your low end castrated. There are exceptions, but these are a minority, and do not include the Big Muff.

Get a bass distortion or fuzz pedal.

bassfuzz.com has some good fuzz reviews, and if you want something more resembling overdrive, the Fulltone bass drive and the Sansamp bass DI are very good.

^this. The bass muff (and almost every EHX pedal for that matter) is great if you're on a budget.

No it isn't. Boss sells a single pedal adaptor. Diago is a british based company that sells a very good powerstation.

You just need to look. A guitar shop will be able to sell you one for most pedals.

I'm sort of in the same position atm.

I've decided on a Bass big muff. All the other stuff was either too expensive or dodgy.
The devi ever cherry pop or w/e sounds good though..

This thread should now be about the cheapest BBM

http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/en/77568

that's the best I can find so far. And my mums going to England soon so we can mail it to a family member and she can bring it back for me.

Boss style is simply 9V centre negative power supply, which is the industry standard.

I'll just ask my friend in UK to use her card I think. Mum will give them the money.

Thanks.

Some pedals may have a "pad" switch on them, like my compression for example.

This cuts the input level by 15dB, its basically to stop your bass overpowering the pedal, if it's overpowered, it wont do its job properly.

Some pedals will have an input level knob, you would typically keep this low if you have an active bass, and high with a passive one.

Whew. I had a mini freak out there.

So the Bass big muff will be cool?

It should work fine. General rule of thumb is that if it doesn't have a pad switch or input level, it probably doesn't need it.

The only think that you may find different is that your signal may be hotter than if you had a passive bass giving you more fuzzy effect.

Edit - the BMP is a pretty brutal pedal anyway so you probably wont notice anything. Remember to use the volume knob to make sure your unaffected tone and effected tone at the same level.

That was a lot of help to me as well.
Just one last thing. Sorry =P

When my bass teacher wrote down on a piece of paper what some good recommendations for my first bass was, at the bottom of the page, in massive bold letters with about 3 underlines, he wrote; DON'T GET ACTIVE!

so obviously I got active -__-
I forgot about that when I was buying my bass, and I just absolutely fell in love with the bass I was looking at.

About 2 days after, I looked at the paper and had an "oh shiii-" moment, but I can't think of any reason that he wouldn't want me to get an active.

halp?

Sorry to be a bother.
