what's your price range? I like the BBE Bmax, available in SS or tube. It sounds great and has an on board compressor. The SS version can be had for about 200 used.

thats a decent price.
if i get back into a band again playing bass, id probably pick something up up to $500. 200 is very resonable.

If you can find one, look for a Sansamp PSA1 Not the PSA1.1 though, the original is better. Fantastic Live and recorded, just remember its a preamp for guitar as well as bass, but brings out some killer sound with a bunch of saveable pre-sets, works well with a midi foot controller too.

I think I picked one up for about $350-$400 U.S. in damn good condition used.
Ibanez SZ530BB
Ibanez AX1220BBK
Marshall JCM2000TSL100
1960A lead Cab
And One Metric "Death Star"

ive been thinking of adding shit to my rig, but I play clean,dont know jack about bass effects any info would help!!
I play an Ibanez sr405qm 5 string through an Acoustic B600h through 2 Acoustic B410 cabs all Monster proline bass cables, got a Moreley crome volume pedal (1970's model lol) And a boss bass eq, but hardly ever use them.

Wouldn't mind an over drive or phaser or something just to mix it up allittle maybe a reverb or something.
I dance with the dead in my dreams, listen to there hollow screams,the dead have taken my soul, temptations lost all control........
