I have a dozen stompboxes for my guitar but I was wondering if I could use some pedals for a bass guitar?

I just want to use my E.H Metal Muff pedal. Because it has that fuzziness I love and for a bass it will just be great!

I am cheap and I dont want to buy seperate pedals lol but if I have to I guess... Then I guess I'll have too lol!


Thanks

You could but it won't sound as good, it'll take away alot of your bottom end.
Gear:
EBMM Bongo HS 4
EBMM Sting Ray 5
Eden D410T
Tech 21 Sansamp RBI
Tech 21 Sansamp RPM
Art 341 Dual Channel EQ
QSC GX5 Power Amp

A lot of standard guitar effects sound fine on bass....things like reverb, delay, flangers, and sometimes even phasers and auto-wah's usually sound ok for bass. Chorus, wah, distortion, and some wierd stuff usually need a bass version to sound right, though the EHX *insert word*Muff pedals sound better than most guitar distortions...it's an acquired taste though, IMO.
Nope, no sig here.

Auto wah does NOT work without being built for both. when I put my Q-troninto the modes for guitar, I lose all my low end and 90% of my volume.

Modulation effects should be fine. Others won't.

The muff series do cut a fair bit of low end. They just produce a lot of lower mids, to make it sound bassy ot untrained ears. If you used one in a show, you would plumet out of the mix.

There is a bass big muff coming out fairly soon, so that may be worth a look for a moderately priced bass fuzz.
