Playing my first jazz gig, and looking for a pedal to give me a nice, smooth sound.

    I am using a Fender Jazz Bass with roundwounds. I doubt I want something like phaser, but maybe chorus? Any advice here?

    Most jazz gigs don't call for effects.
     
  3. What kind of jazz? I've heard chorus, delay, wahs, filters, etc on jazz bass.

    How's about a nice, dark, syrupy compressor?
    Or you could save a bit of money and pull back on the tone knob.
     
  5. 1st jazz gig or 1st gig with a J bass?

    I play "out there" jazz with all kinds of effects. It sounds like you want an always on tone. Maybe some mild overdrive would be up your alley.
