            Comments about DeltaLab DBFX1 Bass Multi Effects Pedal:

            All my basses and all my amps sound better with this board. As a preamp, it's brilliant. The amp simulations and EQ are where it's at. The preset patches are rubbish, you have to dial in the sound you want and create your own patch, but there are many possibilities. There are better bass boards out there, but they cost a lot more, and tend to be bigger and heavier. If you really just want a preamp + tuner + occasional effect, then this a fantastic board for the money. Sturdy enough to lug around and it sounds good.

            It does have a handful of flaws. The tuner is a little weak, it picks up passive 4 string basses well enough, but I have to boost the EQ on my active 5 string bass to pick up the low B. The lever pedal is no good as an expression pedal, but its fine for adjusting volume levels/muting. The compression and noise gate could be a little better, but they are reasonably tweakable.

            Overall, for the money, this board does a lot.

            Comments about DeltaLab DBFX1 Bass Multi Effects Pedal:

            I just got this today - but so far, so good. I was a bit surprised by how small this pedal is, but despite its toy-like size it's a pretty serious lil' feller. I've used a number of Delta Lab's stomp boxes in the past - (I love the stereo chorus) so I knew what to expect tone-wise. This has really good sound quality and the user patches set up quick and easy. I don't use a ton of effects so all I need is about 3 or 4 patches and I'm good. The only thing I would chance, if I could, would be the size of the expression pedal. For me, it's not that big of an issue - I use it for a volume pedal only - but if I were somebody who wanted to use the wha effect I might be turned off by it - yeah, it's small pedal, but it packs a big punch. Great effect for not so much cash.

            Not Bad But Not My Thing

            Comments about DeltaLab DBFX1 Bass Multi Effects Pedal:

            Again, I was looking for a pedal tuner and for the same price as a Boss TU-3 I figured I'd have a nice bag of tricks to boot. The effects all sounded good. And I got the feeling that if I'd taken the time to really dig in to the functionality of it I would have really enjoyed this product. It seemed well put-together and the actual sound was pretty decent. But since it wasn't really up to snuff for the one job I actually bought it for, I quickly took it off the board and put it up on a shelf. For somebody ELSE this thing might be the perfect first step for bass effects for a fledgling musician, or to use in a professional bassist's back-up rig. You get a lot for what you pay.
            Considering the size and the price, this unit can definitely do a lot. However I'll agree with one reviewer that it's not very intuitive and there's as steep learning curve.
            I'm primarily a guitar player, so I have limited experience with bass effects. I got mine a little over a year ago when I was unexpectedly asked to join a friend's band on bass. We had gigs coming up quickly so I didn't have the time (or money) to buy a whole arsenal of bass effects; and I didn't really want to cannibalize my guitar effects rig. Really I got this to have a pedal tuner to use on stage. I just figured whatever effects it came with were an added bonus. The tuner couldn't handle the Low B of a 5-string bass and was not only inaccurate but very difficult to read on dimly-lit stages. So I never did much investigating of the effects themselves other than a few jam sessions.
            It sounds like it cost a lot more than it did. So I suppose that's a good value.

            Nice for the price

            Comments about DeltaLab DBFX1 Bass Multi Effects Pedal:

            This pedal is deceptively simple to program. Just select the effect or amp model you wish to program with the left knob, dial in your choice with the right knob, then push and turn the right knob to select and change the parameters. If you find you don't want a certain effect on, you merely push the right footswitch to bypass it again. The preset sounds demonstrate what the unit is capable of but not very useful. Within minutes however, I was able to crank out some good sounding patches. As I heard in a beer commercial, a good product at a tasty price.

            Ok, but...

            By Mike Wreckage

            Comments about DeltaLab DBFX1 Bass Multi Effects Pedal:

            This little multi-effects pedal has a lot of built in sounds for you to play with and a majority of them are nice. The effects are not the problem with this item, the problem is the functionality. I didnt find the book very helpful and I had to try to figure out how to use this thing just buy experimenting with it. There were a couple things about this pedal that just flat out sucked though: 1) When you first turn the pedal on there is a bit of a delay before the effects kick in. Its only a few seconds but this loading delay is kind of annoying. And 2) there have been a number of times when I would turn off the effect Im using and set my bass back to "Clean" and I would get a bit of a reverb back on my bass sometimes after turning off the effect. It lasts for 3-5 seconds tops but its clearly not a good thing to have. All in all, if youre tight on cash and not looking at use this during a show then its a fine buy, but if you want something thats better quality and better for playing live I would recommend one of Boss` multi-effects pedals instead.
