It actually has a fair few effects, but I'm not very good with dialing things in and don't know which ones to use in a band situation... perhaps someone here can help me! By that I mean when I might use chorus, phaser, delay etc... I'm starting to get the feeling they're just a novelty haha!

I mainly play 80s hair metal and death metal when it comes to bass.


Chorus sounds quite nice when playing old rock. Duff McKagan used it sometimes when he was in Guns n' Roses. I think Chris Squire uses it quite a bit too. Put just a LITTLE bit on though. Too much will totally drown it and your tone will sound sludgy. But just a little bit of chorus dialed in makes a nice shimmering sound. I also heard it in a Rush song once... just can't remember which one right now.
