Just curious...

after downloading the CBG chord form sheets and playing around with a number of tab sheets, I am starting to see (or maybe hear, LOL) that not all the chords sound full. Yes, I know I'm only playing on 3 strings, but some chords on it sound nice and full, and others sound thin, and some just sound plain ol' out of tune...even though my CBG is tuned fine. So I was thinking, to fatten up the sound a bit to maybe look into some of the octave effect stomp boxes. I've been eyeing the Pitch Fork box by electro-harmonix. I love the sounds that can be gotten with it.

Anyway, I was just wondering if others around here have played their CBG's though these devices and what they thought...

Anyone?

I just got a TC Electronics Sub N Up. I like it, but now I need a looper so I can play over the weird organ - subsonic bass lines the thing can make. I wayyyyyyy prefer fuzz, overdrive and reverb, but I'm pretty sure I'll keep the octave pedal. I don't know as though it makes it sound more full, it's pretty serious modulation. A light clean chorus might be better for fullness?
