My first post here.
Firstly, I am a bass player only. I come here seeking advice, which most likely only those with your experience can provide.
What I need:
A high quality effects processor to use when playing my bass guitar live.
I play a high quality semi-acoustic Renaissance bass guitar made by Rick Turner. http://www.renaissanceguitars.com/renopener.html
This bass has a piezo pickup system only with a custom 18 V preamp system. It uses Tomas Infeld Acousticore bass strings. These strings have a nylon inner core and a Phosphor bronze round wound exterior. These particular strings will not work with magnetic pickups and were specifically designed for this bass. This bass produces a very organic/acoustic sound.
I use Acoustic Image amplification systems. http://www.acousticimg.com/index2.html
The combination of this particular bass and amplification system provides an excellent high-quality expressive bass sound.
However, the endless search for the "perfect" sound continues. I would really like to not have a large array of separate effects pedals. So I am wondering if there is one specific effects processor that I could use to modify and enhance my live bass sound.
Would something like the TC Electronics Fireworks gives me the results I am looking for? Any other suggestions?
Thanks in advance for any information you may have.
