damn.............

Edit: Whats your amp? Tell us that and we'll work from there.

Double Edit: Nevermind, just found that you have a Randall and a Digitech Whammy.

If ya wanna get Crazy,EH Guitar Micro Synth: $277.50
http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/ElectroHarmonix-Guitar-Micro-Synth?sku=153308
Or
Even Better, Moog MF-105 Moogerfooger: $399.99
http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Moog-MF105-Moogerfooger-MURF-Analog-Guitar-Effect?sku=158337

The synth effects aren't really a must, but if you have the money and not scared to use them, they are badass

These ones, below, are more realistic option.

Boss DD-6 Digital Delay, there may be better but I really like this unit: $159.00
http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Boss-DD6-Digital-Delay-Guitar-Effects-Pedal?sku=151302

Rocktron Banshee Talk Box, get you Peter Frampton on!: $149.99
http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Rocktron-Banshee-Talk-Box?sku=154218

Boss CH-1 SUPER Chorus, i've never really played with chorus pedals that much but this one sounded pretty good.:$89.00
http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Boss-CH1-SUPER-Chorus-Pedal?sku=151257

Line6 Liqua Flange, same thing with the chorus pedal situation, sounded good to my standards.:$119.00
http://www.musiciansfriend.com/product/Line-6-ToneCore-LiquaFlange-Pedal?sku=150398

But its best to go in and try out all of them and find what ones, suit you.
Colors by Between the Buried and Me is the Best album ever

Whammy, anyone?

Yeah the Digitech Whammy kicks ass and if you have a large budget for effects you DEFINATELY need one. The danelectro backtalk reverse delay is pretty fun too, and it allows you to create some interesting and experimental/psychedelic soundscapes.

To the TS, I checked out your profile and you already have some nice effects there. What aren't they doing for you?

And I agree with Bales, I'd be looking at a bass or amp upgrade if I had that budget.

Unless I'm mistaken, they are guitar effects. But if you want, there's a Digitech Bass Whammy on ebay right now. About 750 lol.

Any of you wippersnappers sig this I'll be pissed.

if it helps,
my bass amp is an Eden. Although it isnt truly MINE...>.> <.<
But would a mesa boogie amp work good with the sound?
Take into consideration here that I have never experimented with sound too much, I is a noob when it comes to tone altering
#13
You have an Eden bass amp? Nice!

Which one? I've always wanted to buy one. Like it?

To be honest, if you're not sure what to get, then don't buy anything. You buy effects to add to a song, not to fit it into a song.


You already have a Digitech Whammy which should be alright for Tool songs, minus the low end drain.

wow
not a big fan of effects
apart from the fact they boost my bass volume
but yea anything from boss and your prob gettin your money worth
is there anything in the FAQ
GEAR
BASS GUITAR
Fender Jazz Deluxe USA /w active pickups
white/creamy finish with red flecked tortoise shell scrathboard

=FFR= PM me to see what all the fuss is about (bass only mofo!)

If you already have a nice Eden amp and are buying some boss effects as most everyone recomends, get a line selector pedal so that you can truely bypass all the effect pedals. Most boss sounds good to me, but they color your tone like no other, even when off.
