So, been playing professionally for 14 years now, and have never once even thought of using a pedal for anything.
However, I'm playing a lot in a dance band that does a lot of 70's and 80's tunes and I have decided to take the plunge whole hog.
I am looking for critiques of this setup:
Bass>>Aguilar Tone Hammer>>Loop box
>>EHX Bass Blogger>>EHX BMS>>passive mix box
Do I even need the loop box? These particular pedals say they have true bypass, but I would like to keep my clean sound as is through the Tone Hammer. Also, I want to the passive mixer to control overall volume of the effects versus my clean sound. Do I have it in the right place in the chain? Am I missing anything?
The goal is to produce key synth sounds and maybe some slightly overdriven tones.
