Has anyone with a fretless bass every tried it with any effects pedals? I sometimes use my fuzz, distortion, wah and overdrive pedals when I play on my fretted, since I'm getting a fretless I'd like to know whether anyone managed to get a decent sound with a combo like this. Some basses have such strong tones that pedals often mess up the sound, like distorted overdrive on a precision (IMHO). How did your experience with pedals and a fretless sound?
A fretless just begs for a chorus pedal. Love using my chorus pedal with mine. And delays can sound rather cool
the best effect i have ever heard on a fretless was a mild chorus.. awesome sound !
Chorus sounds good with a fretless, fuzz sounds better. Combine the mwaaaah and extra fingerboard treble with fuzz and you've got a winner.
Wow yeah I never thought about chorus I guess it would give a nice sound. Thanks a lot dude for putting up the overdrive video I've been looking for something like that, now I'm pretty much sold t this point on fuzz capacity
