Hey guys, I've played about 20 consecutive gigs without the use of my own rig in recent months. I'm an effect pedal fanatic so it's been a matter of bringing my bass and board and continually adjusting to the rig provided. Some rigs don't handle fuzz, some are too muddy for delay etc etc. In the end I decided the smart move would be to add a preamp DI type pedal at the end of my signal chain and use it as a sort of master adjustment point. I bought a DHA VT1EQ and unfortunately, it seems to compress the output of my dirt pedals a lot. I've messed with it a bunch but its doing what it is designed to do - provide a coloured flavor to my tone by itself. I'm thinking I need to go more transparent. While in my heart of hearts I want a Verellen Meatsmoke pedal, I'm thinking my solution is to get something that allows me to adjust to a rig and room and yet leave my pedal sounds kind of uncoloured (or at the least - leave my pedals to not need heaps of tweaking). Has anyone got any suggestions? I'm wondering if an EQ like a Barber would be an option (leaving it on all of the time) or an EBS Microbass or a 3leaf enabler. I'm not a Sansamp fan. I'd appreciate advice from anyone who drags their boards through different backline.
