    Title says it all... I've never been big into the pedals... I run bass>compressor>amp, but I've recently been getting more into pedals and experimenting with them... I also welcome any recommendations for envelope filters... I'm leaning towards Aguilar for the simple fact that any time I have bought anything Aguilar, I've been very happy.

    I like my Ernie Ball Volume Pedal Junior.

    I've heard good things about the Dunlop ones. I've never tried it.

    Tc mini spark is a booster, but the volume increase is amazing!

    I, personally, have my eye on the Mission Engineering VM-Pro volume pedal, though I've not actually tried one out at this point.

    For an envelope filter, go with the Source Audio SB2 Manta, and don't look back.

    Do you want an actual volume pedal you control with your foot, or just something to boost the volume?

    As far an envelope filters, wise choice on the Aguilar Filter Twin. It's stellar.

    For a boost pedal, I've been using a Catalinbread Super Chili Picoso. Super clean, or slight warmth at the flip of the switch. No bass rolloff. It's at the end of my pedal chain for a quick boost for solos or harmonics.

    In that case, you owe it to yourself to try the Source Audio EQ pedal. Reasonably priced, packed with (I believe) 4 preset slots, and it has a built in output control (which could be used as a boost or to balance your overall volume when switching between passive and active basses).
