Before I type my long tale, do any of you guys have any experience using one? Thanks, Kevin

I've seen one or two over the years, but have never tried one out. Does it have internal sounds or is it more of a pre-MIDI type of analogue interface with other synths? As I recall, they were sort of like a big wah pedal with a couple of additional controls, but not anything to generate actual sound. Maybe I never saw a complete rig, just a portion. They've always been fascinating, though.

Fred - You reply led me down the path

I have the bass (Hagstrom Jazz w/built in synth-out)
I have the double pedal with the stomp switch in the middle
I have the 7 pin cord
I have the 2 1/4 to 1/8 cords
I have the case
I have the manuals which is telling me its complete

My question is, nothing happens when I plug the bass into the pedals. I get a normal signal, no changes. It looks like this rig needs to mate with a synth of sorts. I thought that the pedals did the job but I think I am wrong. I need this confirmed...

Kevin,

According to the Ampeg / Hagstrom Patch 2000 - Product Sheet, pg 1, you're on the mark needing a synth to operate.

Ampeg / Hagstrom Patch 2000 - Product Sheet, pg 2

Neil Steiner developed a synth for the Patch. See pic 2 on the Hagstrom page.

Good luck with the Patch.

A close friend of mine had the guitar version in the early 80's. It went from guitar to the PAtch 2000 foot controller and then strraight to the amp.
