    I have a few questions maybe someone can answer:

    What was the first effect made specifically for bass?

    Which came first, stomp boxes or rackmounted effects?

    Having a rack full of stuff is very common these days, who would you think the "OG" of effects use was? This can include compressors, preamps, chorus, or whatever.

    Anyone got any photos of early dedicated bass amp racks?
