Get that funky Shaft sound and more.
The Tone-Lok Series Ibanez SB7 is a synthesizer bass pedal that does its thing in real time”no drag, no tracking errors. You can even play chords. The SB7 bass pedal provides 3 modes: Auto Wah for that frequency-funky Shaft tone, Synth 1 for the light synth sound of '80s new wave, and Synth 2 for a deep, heavy Bootsy Collins-style funk bass sound.
On the outside, Tone-Lok effects are equipped with the Ibanez exclusive "set and forget" Push-Lok rotary pots. Push the knobs down and your tone settings lock securely inside the case”no more lost settings or broken knobs.
On the inside, Tone-Lok pedals feature hi-fidelity components carefully tweaked with the constant input from a new generation of Ibanez players. And all this great stuff comes encased in cool looking, road-tough metal boxes at prices the working player can afford.

I got this thing about a month ago, just long enough to figure out the basics of it. I was wanting two effect pedals, (this one and the WD7) but was told to get the cheaper of the two to help me save up for a car. When I got this I was a little disappointed because I couldn't get the sound I was looking for out of it. However, it gives such a verity of sounds I'm fine with that. This pedal gives pretty much the perfect sound for Thriller by Michael Jackson, as well as other fun sounds to mess with. With AutoWah it will pick up harmonics pretty well. Also, if you turn the level all the way up and turn the Decay to fast then you can get some pretty good distortion for guitar. Not the best bass effect nor the best guitar distortion, but it is good enough to get the job done. And besides, it is good to mess with sounds even if your playing something by somebody else to make it your own.
It's is a good stomp box for its price. Some reviewers were complaining about how it fades in and out, this is true but you need to adjust the frequency knob to your preference; if your playing high then turn it up, or vice verse if your playing low or mid. Unique synth sounds, the auto-wah can be used for ambiance or groove. for a stomp box this is pretty versatile if you can manipulate to tones and tools perfectly it cab be very useful, but requires a little bit of neck technique
I think this pedal is awesome, the auto wah takes some fiddling but it works well with lower sensitivity and a mid frequency. Synth 1 is all around great whatever the parameters are, Synth 2 is a bit quiet but I would suggest a lower frequency/ higher level if you were going to use this effect in a live setting. This pedal is awesome and I use it all the time. Great for solos. And yea combined with distortion this thing is LETHAL.
I researche dthe Ibanez SB7 and was excited to get one. I put in the battery, plugged it in and it was horrible. No matter what setting I used, it faded in and out, cut different notes out when replaying the same riff. A total let down. I tried different basses and different cords with no better results.
A good range of a effects that can go from light fuzz, to space noices. The "tone-loc" controls can make for some Kaoss type noise when messing with feedback. Combined with distortion pedals make it sound amazing.
I've built pedal board recently with Digi bass chorus, Boss bass eq, BBE sonic MAX, and a digi jamman phase sampler, I've been shopping for something over the top but still useful, Think I'm going to go with this one it definetly tops digi's filter/autowah(which isn't even useful), and the bass balls pedal which alot of guys have recommended to me.
Very very well put together. Analog is the way to go for no drag or delay. This pedal can be changed around to make many many unique sounds. Biggest con is the volume change between effects and no effect, but it can be overcome at the pedal without changing amp or guitar volume. Make sure to stock up on 9volts or buy a few and a charger (ANY POWER SUPPLY YOU HAVE WILL MOST LIKELY NOT WORK WITH THIS, besides the Ibanez one!!) I recommend this to anyone willing to venture into new effects and sounds without burning your wallet.
This is a good pedal with many good things and a few bad things. This is a good pedal because it gives you such a good tonal range, it can be a deep synth to a super high synth. It can be used a little for funk. I love all the sounds I can make. The other cool thing is that you can get different sounds depending on how hard you pluck the string. The only bad thing I have found so far is that in order to make the pedal sound noticable is I need to turn my bass all the way up, but that is not such a big deal. overall this is a pretty good pedal that I would recomend.
The pedal is more like an envelope filter with fuzz added. The Auto Wah is better sounding than my Boss GT6B, and doesn't have the tracking issues with the Synth. The unit has it's own analog synth sound, and it's very usable. Overall, I like the sound, and the "tone-loc" knobs.
The SB7 is an affordable pedal with a great effect - synth. The synth manages to range from a deep/dark sounding synth, all the way up to a screaming/high tone synth. Sadly, it doesn't have as many features as the Digitech or BOSS Synth, however...I find it has a very good and even tone. One problem i faced with it was that to use it at its FULL Potential, i had to put my bass volume (on my bass guitar) to full! This was a shame, because when i tuned the effect off the volume would then be at a soft point, or at a high point that that would blow your ears! But with some tweaking and fiddling with the controls, you can sort of fix that issue. The effect also goes very well with an OVERDRIVE pedal if you have one that will give a very cool Bootsy Collins type tone. Even without an OverDrive pedal it still sounds damn cool! If your in a garage band, and like to give your bass a good tone on stage, this is defiantly a pedal for you!
