Too Many Knobs

If it's not a bass, and it's not an amp, but it's something you use when you're playing bass, talk about it here.

Yes yes Roger my friend.
And also a picture with numbers on each light and knob in the manual so people are not getting confused which LED is OVERLOAD and which one ARMAGEDON :D No really.

Eh, I love a good knob job now and then. :lol:

My preference is actually running my passive bass into my head with no pedals. On an amp, I just need a 4 band EQ. Other than that, everything else is just an added bonus. I do agree that tone is in your hands, but sometimes having a few other things like a good compressor and other options are just plain cool to mess with and finely sculpt tonal possibilities.

However, I tried messing with one of those new Line6 HD500 processors in the store. Holy crap! I feel like I need to be back in my early 20s with one of those fancy computer degrees in order to understand it. :?

Love the ideas of having a signal path chart... and full explanations in manual. I'll put those on my list of Must Haves...
