Hello everyone.

I am looking for the best bass multi-effect pedal. I really want to explore a lot of different effects on my bass and I'd like to find which pedal will do the best job.

I am also open to any suggestions of, say, multiple pedals that will give me some really good effects that are commonly used in all genres of music.

I mostly like playing hard rock and metal, but I also play softer songs as well since I play for a church worship band. One of my favorite bands is Tool and I'd love to imitate that amazing bass sound that they have.

My budget probably extends to about $500-$600.

Does anyone have any suggestions or advice?

look at a fuzz, overdrive/distortion and maybe a wah or a whammy. chorus could be useful as well
DONT RISK IT, BUY A BASS AMP

I've been looking at the Boss GT-10B and it seems pretty good... Have either of you used it before?

I generally have a knee-jerk reaction to these threads of "don't get a multi effects pedal." But before I tell you that, I must ask, how much do you know about effects? If you know absolutely nothing, buy a cheap multi-effects pedal and just fool around with the different effects and settings. You'll learn how different effects sound, and how they sound combined with other effects. My first pedal was a Digitech BP80. Granted, I hate the thing now, I think all the effects sound terrible, but it helped me a lot in understanding all the different types of pedals, especially things like the difference between overdrive, fuzz, and distortion, or between flagers, phasers, and choruses, where the differences can be subtle.

I wouldn't go for the more expensive effects processors though. Just get single units. You get a much better sound for the same amount of money, and more versatility.

I have a decent knowledge of effects... I borrowed a Digitech Multi-Effect for a while and got to try out some different effects but didn't manage to do what you did and figure out subtle differences between, say, overdrive and fuzz. But you would suggest an array of pedals instead of a multi-effect?

^I'd figure out what effects you like and what suits your playing style, and get those. BTW, if you need help with choosing specific models, bassfuzz.com does great reviews of overdrive, fuzz, and envelope filter pedals, especially obscure boutique ones that you can't necessarily find bass demos of, or even demos period.
