So I'm thinking about getting this pedal, the tones that seem to be delivered seem great! And I've always wanted to have something to aid me in getting the right bass tone, for the right song.

Problem is, my Amp, it's a Fender Rumble, 60Watt, and the volumne switch is busted at full, so a lotta the time, it's quite hard to get a good sound, I'm using a digital multi-effects pedal with this amp, the Zoom B2.1u, and since I've had it, it's been alright, with on-board volumne controls to keep the noise down and get a better all-round sound, obviously the bass I am using, the Schecter Stiletto Diamond Series, has it's own on-bpard volumne, bass, and treble controls. Anyways.

I was wondering, would the busted volumne on my amp be an issue with using this equaliser pedal? Like, will it mess up the sound or anything? Or will I be alright to just tone down the volumne on my bass?

Also, is anyone else using this pedal with the same amp as mine? or even same bass and amp? And possibly able to give me a sound test with it?

And finally, anyone got a nice, in-depth look at the pedal? Like, "If you do this, it does that" but in a bit more detail?

Thanks for any help, since buying a Boss Distortion pedal for my electric guitar, and loving the reliability of them, I've wanted to get some for the ol'bass!

All the best, guys!

I have one, it's never let me down. You actually use the pedal to decrease the volume so you wont be at full all the time. As for your amp you might want to look into getting that fixed, being at full blast all the time cant be good for your speaker

I'm looking into getting one of these and everyone has said it's the best thing you can possibly own for a bassist.

That is simultaneously brilliant and obscene. I honestly don't know if I despise, or admire you.

Was supposed to quote you verbatim, but forums won't let me so I put the '^^^'s as arrow-ups.

If you have a bad amp then it doesn't matter how many pedals you throw at it. It's going to sound like a bad amp. Personally, if you can't get the sound you want out of an amp the answer is getting another amp.

True, but if you like the overall sound of an amp, but would like a bit more versatility or tweaking ability, an EQ pedal can be a great thing. It can also give you a completely different sounding "channel"to switch back and forth between mid-song.

And of course it's a good investment because you won't be limited to amps with built in graphic EQ's in the future. You have your own to put into any amp you like.

I do like the boss pedal. Play with it a lot at GC and am thinking of picking it up myself. A new amp would do you quite well, but if the budget won't allow for now and you feel the need to get more control over your tone, this is a good choice IMO.
