Hey guys. I am currently on the "I-Love-My-Bass-So-I'll-Play-With-Effects" kick (every 2-3 years I do this). Anyway, here is my set up: image by peterdannenfelser, on Flickr image (1) by peterdannenfelser, on Flickr As for the pedals: I play with the MXR Chorus Deluxe on almost all the time. The crossover feature is amazing and gives me the "me-tone" I've been in search of for years. Keeps the bass full and gives the upper register some "sing." Best chorus I've ever played. I use the MXR '78 Badass Distortion almost all the time too to dirty up my tone. The cleanliness of the Genz is awesome, but this almost makes it sound a little Ampeg-like. I boost the bass knobs on the amp to ensure I don't lose any bottom end and keep the tone on the distortion at about 10:00. I switch it off for some of the "older" tunes we do. Beatles, Paul Simon, etc. The MXR Envelope Filter is really just a toy. But I love having it. The Big Muff is great for "punking out" during harder songs or to fill up a little under guitar solos. The Markbass booster is a wonder-tool. Perfect for when I need a little bump to get some attention or when the song calls for the bass to take a little stronger position (Psycho Killer, Are You Gonna Be My Girl, etc.) Anyway, that's my rig. I am back in a cover band and we'll be playing regularly (I hope) and instead of pushing on getting new basses, I hope to finally settle on this set up. The two basses are all a gigging bassist needs, the Mesa cab is a monster and the electronics are very versatile.
