Hello, first post. Right now the only pedal I have for my bass is a compressor. I've been thinking about getting a Boss GEB-7 EQ. I'm running straight to the board and think I might need more control over the eq than the board gives. I've also been thinking about an Aphex Bass Xciter because it can function as a DI and also just to improve/deepen the tone. It and the GEB-7 both get good reviews for bass. My question is, would it make sense to have both or would having one pretty much do the job of the other? My other question is, if I'm already running straight to the board without a DI, do I really need one? It's a passive bass. Thanks. Thanks.
