- Current Setup:
I am not currently in a band. I go to a lot of jam sessions and play bass with as many musicians as I can.
In my one man band I play a Stratocaster (yes a guitar as a bass) through a Radial Bones A/B pedal. "A" goes to a Fulltone OCD, a Fulltone Fulldrive, a BBE Ben Wah, a Fulltone Fat Boost 3, and a Sansamp Blonde. "B" (the bass side) goes to a Carl Martin Compressor into a Boss OC-3 Octave pedal (drops notes one octave down so my lower strings work as a bass guitar also) into a Sansamp Programmable Bass Driver. The second out of the Octave pedal drives a second Fulltone Fat Boost 3, into an Electro Harmonix B9 Organ Machine, into an MXR Carbon Copy delay, then to a Sansamp Liverpool. All three Sansamps go to the board without any amps and to Bose L1 1s and a B2 subwoofer. I am a one-man-band. I run an Alesis SR18 drum machine, but no backing tracks. I am a bassist and a guitar player so it is kinda fun and challenging. I truly love playing both. In my current situation I don't play lead guitar. I am too busy playing bass and rhythm guitar; they are way more important for the dancing. I am also a fill-in bass player for a local band.
Update: I find myself playing bass a lot more these days. My guitars are getting jealous.
