do people use pedals for basses? how do they work? what do they do besides add more distortion? are they useful?

bass wah... tuners... bass equalizers... ummm overdrive/distortion pedals... which IMO sound like crap... i'm sure theres a phaser out there... chorus... compression... synth pedals... amongst many others...

Yeah, I'm curious to know about some specific pedals, also. I'm looking into some, most likely a passive volume pedal, wah-wah (awesome for those funky bass lines), and a distortion, which leads me into a question probably asked a thousand times and answered too much.

Death From Above 1979. Could anyone be so kind to name that effect, and such a pedal to bring that about? Particular song, Turn It Out. That kind of sound. I'm not too particular on the beginning screams, that to me sounds like a sort of Octavider or Phase Shifter, if those even make sense in the context I'm stating them in, or if I'm completely off.

It's a Moog synthesiser I'm afraid - not bass at all!

Wow. So you're saying that whole song is a synth playing, not a bass?

Well crap. I went through the trouble to learn it on bass already. Shoot. Oh well, thanks for the education, smb.
