pedalboard setup - pedal order
Perhaps a thread like this can help the bass players, that need help or advice (like me) in setting up the pedalboard.
So a question for the pedal board specialists out there. I am sure you have some opinion on the pedal setup order.
i would have something like that on a pedal board:
I would put these pedals in the following order:
bass -> Tuner -> Volume -> Wah -> Distortion -> Equalizer -> amp
effects loop: amp -> synthi -> chorus -> amp
Any advice or opinion is welcome. Thank you.
One thinks you might have opened a large can of worm here!
I agree with the general order tho, I think that volume/dynamic effects, into tone/drive effects into modulation effects is a good starting point.
Modulation in the effects loop can be useful if your using your amp for colour and maybe a bit if grit. If you're using a very clean amp however, literally to amplify your bass, I doubt you'll see much improvement running chorus before the amp or in the loop.
Eq can be placed almost anywhere depending what you want from it. Ie, tone shaping - put it near the start, or tone fixing, put it at the end. Other effect will react to changes in eq.
I would also question the placement of the synth pedal. I would personally put it before the drives as they are very sensitive to playing dynamics, you can also then distort the synth effect for more coloration. A synth pedal would likely not respond well to an already distorted tone. Even better, you could split the signal and run the synth pedal in its own loop in parallel to drives and modulation.
So would you suggest, from that starting point trying different setups and see which will do it the most for my subjective sounding ideas?
all pedals (except the wah) would be boss pedals. Amp would be Trace elliot. (as far as i know trace elliot has more options for the effect loop, depending on the intensity of mix from the real signal and the modulatet signal)
Old Trace have parallel loops with highpass option and full level control. I'd put the entire pedal chain in there. Overdrive like you never heard, you can get as heavy as you like and never lose your low end.
Fuzz and chorus type often invert phase. With a highpass loop you'll hear the crossover frequency zone dip out when a single inverting pedal is on in the loop, reverting to full when two are on.
I built up my own highpass loop with phase toggled.
with highpass you mean like that
No youtube here. Signal goes through a mini Rolls crossover, highs (the highpass) goes through effects, lows are remixed in blender pedal.
