Guitar --> Pure sine wave stomp box?

Do you guys know of a guitar stomp box that would take a guitar input and generate a pure sine wave as output? Remind me to crosspost this to guitargeek.

There are a couple of cool guitar synth-type boxes that are a lot of fun, but not all of them have a sine wave generator.

If you're made of money, a good candidate is the Roland GR-20/GR-33 Guitar Synths. Those have plenty of sine wave goodness. They don't come cheap though. And they don't really track as well as one would hope. I had a GR-33 for a couple of years and finally sold it a few months ago.

My POD XTLive has some pretty cool synth sounds (leads, bass synth, and other crazy noises) but nothing like a pure sine wave. There are some sawtooth and square-wavish sounding things, though.

Another cool box is the Electro-Harmonix Micro Synthesizer. It, too, doesn't have a sine wave. It's still all kinds of fun to play with.

I hope this helps!

I'm leaning towards the Electro-Harmonix Micro Synthesizer. Thanks!

If you don't mind my asking -

What are you looking to do? Just add some nifty synthy stuff to your playing? Or is it something more involved and nefarious that just that?

I'm gonna vocalize a bass line when I'm practicing alone or when Basil's Rock-And-Roll Playplace is open and no one wants to play bass.

basilwhite: Ibanez Bass Synth pedal

I ended up getting an Ibanez Bass Synth pedal and an Ampeg (Ampex?) Bass Xciter pedal. Thanks for the advice.
