I really love lemmys style and sound .sadly i cannot afford a rick and a marshall stack so i was wondering if there is a decent bass effects pedal that can get lemmys tone .cheers

Wish I could help you, bro. I play well but I know very little about stacks and effects and all that. Though it does occur to me that I've never tried playing any Lemmy or Motorhead. Not that I dislike them, it's just never crossed my mind. Lots of bands out there, some stuff just happens to get forgotten about in the shuffle. I need to remedy that.

Have a read of this:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lemmy_Kilmister

It says Lemmy doesn't use any effects, plays a Rickenbacker with vol and tone all the way up, bass and treble all the way down on the amp but the mids way up, and gain maxed out.

Cheers.

Pretty sure he was also using a modified Marshall guitar amp head but with a bass cabinets until he got his signature Murder One unit.
But as previously posted loads of mids and gain/overdrive should get you somewhere close
