Tuner Alert.

TC Electronics Polytuner - little (and I mean little) sucker works great on both acoustic and electric. Much better than any other clip on I've used. And I'll be damned, I like it better than the tuner on the Kemper Profiler.

Very smooth response (not jittery at all) and the way the display works is really nice.

Delay pedals where the feedback, level, and/or delay time are controlled using rocking pedal(s) like what's used on a wah instead of knobs. Is that a thing that exists?

Yes. In most multi-effects units you can program the rocker to modulate any of a presets available parameters. I haven't tried it with my HD500 but I know this is possible. Not sure about a OOTB product like that though. There's things like this too:

Kinda interested in learning how to make pedals and developing my own model eventually, but this'll do the trick in the meantime.

Moog has such a device with their miniFooger line of effect pedals, but they're discontinued much to my disappointment. What Mr Disc Golfer posted is the expression pedal that you would plug into a miniFooger to change certain parameters of that particular effect. Moog EP-3 Universal Polarity Expression Pedal are not an effects unit by themselves.

Ernie Ball has a line of line pedals including a delay which are built into a expression pedal. They run about two hundred smackeroonies, but on the used market they are cheaper and they're coming down considerably.

I thought about taking out the potentiometer and installing eighth inch stereo jacks in lieu of each knob (so I can unplug it if I have to) and connect them with cords to individual volume/expression pedals ... or just pigtail wires from the device to a volume pedals. I might circuit bend a Behringer.

I'm looking for a really good 5 string bass, preferably Ibanez but as long as it has decent pickups and not an overly-glossy finish, I'll consider it

I don't know your price range, but have you considered a SUB Ray? If you have the money, what about a Music Man 5 string bass?

I'll sell you my Peavey Cirrus BXP 5. Make me an offer.



My apologies for the blurry pic.
