Big Bottom? Ya Gotem?
« on: December 10, 2006, 09:40:24 PM »
Any y'all using an Aphex 'Big Bottom'? Our sound man at church sez i gotta git one. I have a punch Factory already (ho-hum), but he is saying these work great on bass, and he normally knows his stuff.

He just starting using a Aphex 204 rack unit on the PA at church, and he loves it! Any of you folks using the 204 on your PA rigs?

Our sound guy suffers from G.A.S.

I've thought about trying one, but I don't like anything between me & Eden except my Strobostomp.  I'm not an effects guy.

I had the Aphex 204 Big Bottom rack mounted with the WT 1205 I had. I didn't keep it very long...I thought the 1205's bass/treble boost worked just as well, as the Aphex. I brought it back to the store, I think it's more suited for P.A. and recording studio's for vocals.

I've tried both the AX204 rackmount and the Bass Xciter pedal...

for PA and studio theyre cool, for a live bass rig they're pointless.

I think I need some more Gear...

Yup, they're good for recording, even if it's just casual recorind on a PC or Mac.  They're also somewhat useful in low volume situations, or when using a small combo at it's limit.  I also have had good success using it with PA's, since it helps make up for the sterile sound that can happen sometimes.
