        Interesting. I've got an ineko on the way, and I love
various sub bass type effects. Shaking everything in the room
at live shows is always fun. 

        One of my favorite live moments was hitting some
low notes on a stick->danelectro octave (chillidog) -> moogerfooger low
pass filter -> dod meatbox[1] and having all the hanging lights
in the room shaking. 

        Now if I only had about 20x as much amplification, then
I could have some real fun ;->

[1] Talk about sub bass, those things are out of control.
A must have for a serious noise rig.
