Two things

- Radial JD7
- Peterson Stroborack Tuner

The JD7 is a night and day improvement over daisy chaining preamps using passthroughs.

The Peterson nails tuning better than any rack or pedal tuner I've tried, but more importantly it has improved my ability to set intonation dramatically. No longer need to avoid playing the E string above the 12th.

Common theme is these two things take everything I have and make it all sound better

Darkglass B7K or my Rickenbacker. Both are amazing.

Gallien Krueger MB115!

By far the best thing I've played.
Playing bass for three years. Incredible experience!

A lump hammer for smashing iphones so that the ownwers will stop comparing them and get on with some music.

An ART Tube MP preamp/direct box. A sonic Swiss Army knife that makes my Hofner (and just about anything else) sound huge, warm and detailed. A steal at $29 -- get them while you still can.

Threaded saddle bridges for my J and P basses.

(Next up will be a Hipshot GB 7 tuner for one of the 5 strings.)

Know anyone who wants a Badass bridge?

Aguilar Tone Hammer 350. I think this may be the best amp I've heard in my life. I just love it.

Little Mark III and a 210 Traveller cabinet to go with it. Just love the sound and it's way lighter than the Yorkville YBA-200 I was using. Sounds better too.

The Whirlwind Bass Ten is on the larger side, but so is its tone - my basses love it!

That would be my Eastwood EUB-1: lightweight, semi-hollowbody, unlined fretless. It plays like a dream.
Jump it, shuffle it, swing it, slide it...I've got the blues and I can't hide it!

Two pieces, actually. Fender American Deluxe Jazz, and P basses. Both with clear finish ash bodies, and maple fret boards. Nice basses.

It's a tough 3 way tie between my stingray HH, Strymon timeline, and Eventide space for me.

Hartke Hydrive 112 to go with my Ampeg Micro VR. Took my rig from "meh" to "I love this little bastard!!!". BBE Sonic Stomp was a fun addition too. Added a little oomph I'd been missing.
