    I am trying to find more awesome bass effects for our customers.

    We've got some legit stuff from Spencer and DG

    Any suggestions for awesome stuff to have around would rock!

    I don't know what you sell but I've always been a fan of Carl Martin and Roger Mayer. No nonsense solid gear.

    Sansamp, MXR, and Dunlop also have great bass gear.

    Maybe add in some Smallsound/Bigsound and Empress. Some Wilson Wahs wouldn't be a bad idea since you can also market them to guitar players. Maybe for some inspiration / solid market research, you could track pedal movements via the PYPB threads or, for more of a text based view, the What's Coming and Going thread. You already have a pretty good selection online, maybe expand further in store?

    MXR offers a lot a variety in guitar and bass effects for a modest price. The bass effects get a lot of love here, especially the comp.

    boutique: iron ether, small sound/big sound, fuzzrocious, origin effects, sfx

    If only I were that good....
    That really depends, a few questions to consider.

    1.) What type customers are you looking for?

    2.) What are your biggest sellers so far in bass equipment? i.e. what type of basses and amps are you moving mostly?

    3.) Are you big box store? authorized dealer? Used/ trade ins? or trying to be a vintage/boutique store?

    If you're selling more beginner or middle of the road basses and amps I can't see you doing well loading up on all boutique effects and pedals that may sit around...the same goes the opposite as well...

    Good points. Also, do you have the marketing and reach to get to more effects loving bassists than the next guy.

    We are authorized dealer for high quality boutique effects. We currently dont sell anything thing bass amp or bass related. We are high end electric gear. So i've got a lot to learn in the Bass world and figured this would be a great resource. High end stuff is my thing but I have the standards as well to fill in for people who enjoy those brands.

    Is this an analog store or an online one? (I can't believe I just said "analog store" but you get my meaning.)

    Get a Tech 21 Bass Boost Chorus in there. Wonderful wonderful chorus designed for bass.

    There are two Polish brands you should check out: Taurus and G-Lab. Both make very excellent bass-friendly pedals, but they are still under-known in the US. Both do have importers here already, but (a) they might act as middle-men for you, or (b) you could import directly as their business model might be different enough from yours to not be marketplace competition.

    A US brand that I wish was better known is DDyna.
