    about the only thing i could offer in help is your local music store and newspaper and ebay. i just picked up a couple of boss pedals myself well the wife did she found them at the local flea market got them both for 20 with adapters and cables and they both work fine

    kat bro that is an awesome site thanks bro!!!!!!!!!
    i have thought of ebay but i treat ebay kinda like a pawn shop lol if you buy something in most pawn shops and walk outside and it stops working oops your out of your money and they made money selling you crap. does ebay guarantee there merchandise? so that you wont have that problem? just wondering and MUTT thanks bro i might actually see about the flea markets around here i am also gonna try finding one at unclaimed baggage it is a place that sells things the airlines find after flights i have seen them selling acoustic guitars so its not like they wouldn't have effects pedals lol

    anyways thanks bros im definately gonna check into all of these places and try to find one i have a zoom 505 original effects pedal for the guitar and it has served me pretty well so i was gonna try to find a bass pedal with a built in expressor pedal onboard so i dont hafta buy more stuff to go with it lol the original 505's expressor pedal costs 50$ extra! so im cutting out the middlepedal and going for simplicity lol
    thanks again!!!!!!

    Trippy, yeah bro that site is awesome...... I'm a drummer and get most of my stuff from that website also. My dad's been getting his stuff from that website and ebay too, everything has worked awesome so far.

    Ebay is great in my opinion, thing is you have to read the description exactly as it is written. If they send you something that is broken then you can contact them and they will almost always refund you or something. And if they dont, and they are trying to be crooks then you can contact ebay and file a dispute and they will help you straighten it out with the seller. I mostly just get fishing gear off of ebay, find some great deals on old penn reels ;)

    Later bro! :)

    hey no propblem there trippy!
    with ebay first thing you need to do when shopping there is look at thier feedback if there is a lot of negatives well move on lol. if they have a couple of negitives go read what they are you will be amazed at what some people will put down as a negitive. always make sure they have a good reutation first then look at the shipping costs. i am into rc planes and ive seen people selling kits there for more then retail and thier shipping is outrages. so you need to do your homework. wife has been a member for almost 8 years ive been one for 5 years and she only had one issue there ever and it was with a real idiot that didnt read the auction at all she had going. good luck i hope you find what your looking for. and Merry Christmas to ya.

    i think halfcom may carry effects pedals heck it seems you can find everything else there. i know i got a great deal on my emeril cookbooks around 5 bucks of books new ones for about 17 bucks for the books shipped lol and all hard cover too. gotta love places like that.

    Trip you can find a bunch of stuff on EBAY.Just kinda wonder what effect you are looking for and why.Did you say Bass?Most cheesy processors do not work that well with Bass frequencies.I think I'd save the money,and practice more.Maybe I'm just old school but a real player doesnt need to hide behind effects to sound good.Check out Victor Wooten,Jaco Pastorious and cats like that.You will quickly notice there is alot that can be done with just 4 strings.Then try to do it.Oh yeah,good luck with that! :confused:

    most of my stuff comes from either pawn shops or musicians friend.only thing i dont like about musicians friend is they try to hard to push thier epiphone guitars and what i really like about them is they carry alot of dime bag gear,i plan on getting one of them new Krank amps and another dean dime bag sig guitar,that slime bumble bee guitar looks awsome..but yea go check out pawn shops,you can find some great deals at em cause alot of people get into guitars and other instruments and get bored with em and sale em to pawn shops.good luck
