    Current Setup:
    Gig rig:

    Carvin LB76W 6-string bass (Claribel) currently strung with DR Sunbeams (11.6 lbs)
    Schecter Stiletto Studio 8-string bass (Jezebel) currently strung with S.I.T.s. (8.4 lbs)

    Both plugged into a Radial Bassbone
    In the fx loop of the 'Bone:

    Peterson Strobo-Stomp
    MXR Bass Envelope Filter
    Markbass Compressore
    EHX Deluxe Bass Big Muff Pi

    From the effect out of the Muff:
    Voodoo Lab Sparkle Drive
    Then into point A on EHX Switchblade+ ABY

    From the direct out on the Muff:
    Boss CEB3 Bass Chorus
    Then into point B on the Switchblade+

    The Y on the Swithblade+ goes back to the effects loop on the Bassbone

    This allows me to use the Switchblade to switch instantly between a chorus tone and a dirt tone. (I don't care for chorus and dirt together, but like to switch between them.)

    All mounted on a Pedal Train, and all but the 'Bone and the Compressore powered with a Voodoo Lab Pedal Power Plus 2.

    Cables are a mixed lot, but include DiMarzio, George L, Fender, and Whirlwind.

    Carvin BX500 head
    2 Carvin BRX series 2x10"s, stacked vertically
    For smaller gigs and practice: GK MB115 combo

    Other basses:
    Fender 70's P-Bass Reissue (Bessie da Thump Machine) currently strung with Labella Deep Talkin' Flats (9.4 lbs)
    Carvin LB76 (Janis W. Pearl) currently strung with Carvin flats (10.2 lbs)
    Carvin BK40A (Thumbelina) currently strung with DR Sunbeams (10.4 lbs)
    Rickenbacker 4003 (Penelope The Red) currently strung with Rotosound 77 Jazz Flats (10.4 lbs)
    Aria Pro II Fretless Cat Bass (Katie) currently strung with D'addario Chrome Flats (9.6 lbs)
    Epiphone EBM-5 (Ivory) currently strung with DR Sunbeams (7.8 lbs)

    Other amplification gear (I will probably sell these items, locally only)
    2 (count 'em) Gallien-Krueger 400RB heads
    Carvin ProBass 500 head
    Carvin V410T cab
    Carvin V118 cab

    Pedals I own but don't use, but want to in the future if and when I get a larger pedalboard:

    EHX Enigma Q-Balls autowah
    HBE Hematoma overdrive
    Boss OC2 octaver

    Pedals I will likely sell or trade:
    EHX Switchblade
    EHX Bass Big Muff Pi
    Boss AW3 Autowah

    For backup and rehearsals, I have a Boss ME50B multi, which fits in the same backpack that I keep all my cables, tools, etc in.

    Ovation Celebrity Deluxe acoustic/electric (Audrey)
    And for camping, a Lauren, which cost me $90 brand new, and I don't think enough of to give a name.
    Favorite Genres:
    Jazz, Blues, Funk, Rock, RnB, Minimalism, Avant-Garde
    Gigs and Ensembles:
    Uneven Steven (original, instrumental blend of rock, funk, blues, and jazz)
    Previously Owned Gear:
    Aria Pro II XRB Series Active Electrics (Funkalena)
    Ibanez P-Bass Copy (Lucy)
    MIM Fender Jazz V (Cassandra)

    Zoom multi
    EHX Micro Q-Tron
    Crybaby bass wah
    DOD American Metal distortion pedal
    Some kind of crappy Yamaha compressor stomp from the 80's
    G.A.S. List:
    In order of priority:

    New pups and pre for my Schecter 8-string
    Bigger pedalboard
    Fender Jazz or similar, preferably 5-string
    Influences and Teachers:
    No formal teachers. I think my playing has a lot of Flea in it, and I get the Les Claypool comparison a lot.
    Hobbies and Interests:
    cooking, camping, bicycling
