    What exactly do you need help with? Are you looking to add pedals to your set up or asking if your current setup suffices?

    I agree. Although depending on personal taste or what songs you play you might want a flanger or chorus.

    You need a flanger, a fuzz pedal, and a compressor.

    You can get away with no pedals in a classic rock band. So get whatever you need for the funky stuff.

    I don't think you need anything else here. You have a pretty good setup.

    Once I got a proper motorized bass I don't use the pedals anymore.

    OD/Dist/Fuzz
    Chorus/Flanger
    Octave

    You can do a lot of cool things with those three pedals.

    I find the only must have non-tuner pedal is some kind of dirty/coloring preamp like the vt bass, so you can get a nice sound even when you're using the boring sounding house amp at the venue. Octave and envelope filter are a lot of fun, though.

    I'd say an overdrive/dirt, a compressor and possibly a fuzz (or envelope filter for the funky stuff.)
