Let's put this review in context right from the start: I just turned 50, and have been playing since I was 13. This particular product was purchased because at the time, the only bass I had was an old Sears & Roebuck (yeah, do you believe that?) jazz bass knockoff, and the pickups didn't have very good sustain, and the compression really stunk (stank?). This unit really helped with both. However, to use it as a foot pedal is difficult, especially if you're a bigfoot with size 13's like me. I had to put it on top of my amp (a 1974 Peavey Musician --told ya' I've been around for awhile....) and hand slap it to use the bypass or switch the effects.After buying an Ibanez with Bartolini active pickups, I decided that the pedal wasn't needed anymore.HOWEVER, just recently, I've been playing rhythm guitar, and this pedal has two features that can be useful: it has a voicing called "funky," that if used with a strat in the neck pickup, sounds just like the wah in "Shaft." Also, the other voicing that could be useful is the "Octapie," which doubles the note an octave below. If you use a guitar on the octapie to play bass lines, it's like having the bass and a guitar on overdrive doubling lines (think Cream playing "Sunshine of Your Love). This feature could be used to thicken up your sound when you're playing in a combo that has no guitar--i.e., keyboards, bass and drums.Would I buy it again? Hey, I'm a grouchy old guy who doesn't really have much use for effects like chorus, flange, or fuzz on bass. Buy it if you have an inferior bass or need to juice up your pickups, but I would recommend you use the money as a down payment for a bass with active pickups.

I bought this to practice through headphones.The distorted settings on this are just that, totallydistorted. Sounds ok through an amp. The drum machine sounds very very digitized. You cant change the drum machine volume without effecting the effects volume. very low output through the headphones, which is why I purchased to begin with.oh well this one goes back.

I'm Impressed!!!!

from Undisclosed

I was looking for a bass tuner... this pedal has a nice tuner plus great effects (individual and combined) and a drum machine/metronome... Plus, the bypass is crystal clear.

Great Multi-effects

By Wooten101

from Tigard, OR

I like this pedal because it gave me a wide range of effects. And the drum machine is awesome. Although, I couldn't get it to have the perfect sound that I wanted. I spent more time fiddling with the sound than actually playing.

Well I bought this pedal because I like to experiment. I'm not in a band or anything, but I still know what I'm doing. It's pretty great when you need a boost for your creative juices and you need different tones and whatnot. It's got plenty of effects to choose from, but there is no distortion besides fuzz. This pedal has a lot to offer though, the EQ and tuner are also very nice. Go ahead and try it out at your local music store and then order it here-- don't feel bad for not buying it at the store you tried it; those guys are usually jerks.

A lot of processing for under $100!

By BassBob-6v0P5

from Pittburgh, PA

Not every bassist will find this unit to be their Holy Grail, but it does provide the more popular basic bass effects along with the capability of teasing those effects for the type music being played, and what pleases your auditory senses. The amp and cabinet modeling effects produce phat to mellow string response which is especially useful to compliment the style of music being played at the time. While many effects tend to sound identical, a good ear will define the difference. The drum effect capabilty is rather limited, but hey, for $!00 with AC adapter there's enough beat there to help you with your bass lines when practicing....AND, you can do this through a set of headphones using the stereo output jack.

Not bad for an inexpensive effects box

By Mike-o78jM

I bought a BP50 on sale for something like $50 one year ago, after I acquired my first bass guitar. This is pretty much an entry level effects box--for the price, you aren't going to get professional effects and features. Keeping that in mind, the BP50 isn't a bad little box--much more useful than the Digitech MSP-4 I bought for my guitar about ten years ago. By playing with the settings, I've managed to get some cool sounds out of the unit, including a reasonable approximation of the synth bass on NIN's "Where is Everybody". I've got another setting that is pretty much my standard sound--very similar to what I get by jacking the bass into my Alesis Nanocompressor and ART Dual MP (Tube Mic preamp--works great for clean bass and guitar, too!). The drum machine is about what you would get on a cheap Casio or Yamaha consumer grade keyboard. It's nothing special, but will at least give you a tempo to work with. While you *supposedly* can jack a pair of headphones into the output, forget about it--the output level is too low to really hear yourself play. Also, I think the box filters a little too much high end frequencies. I know it's a bass effects box, and while I want plenty of bottom end on a bass, the BP50 sounds a little muffled to me, even with the EQ set very trebly.All in all, for $50, it wasn't a bad purchase, but if you are a serious studio or live musician, you should probably save your money for a higher end product. If you are just learning bass guitar, however, and money is an object, or (like me) you are just a hobbyist, and can't justify a high end device, give the BP50 a try.

Great modeling pedal for a great price

By chaosstarter00

from Atoka, TN

The BP50 is a great buy. It's a modeling pedal, a drum machine, and a chromatic tuner, all in one. It's fairly easy to operate and it's not that expensive.

Amazing Pedal!

I love this pedal! All the effects are great, and the drum machine is fun. The amp modeling is awesome as well. It enhances my volume level, making me sound louder than i could get with my amp alone.

The BP50 Bass Modeling Pedal is awesome. It is the best bass pedal to start with. The great sounds and effects give you a chance to create your own signature way of playing.
