    So my birthday is approaching, and I'm looking for music-related ideas :D I thought I'd ask TB for help as I know you guys will have ideas that I'd never have thought of :)

    Things I already have and thus probably don't need, but feel free to suggest alternatives to anything that is already listed if you want to, I'll give it a look anyways :
    - a few basses, and a custom one in order and expected to arrive soon (please don't suggest a bass though, the GF will most definitely kill me)
    - a respectable pedalboard that includes a dirt pedal, compression / limiting, EQ, and a Torpedo CAB M+ that I love as a cab sim / DI / HPF / tuner
    - a zoom multi-fx for practice, with good headphones
    - a power amp and a cab (Barefaced 212)
    - the utilities, sturdy jack cables, straps, picks, are already covered

    Ideas :
    - a pedalboard power supply (Cioks) to declutter a bit
    - a fun multi-function pedal (HoTone Xtomp) to experiment
    - a sturdy case (Mono) to protect the soon-to-arrive new one

    Thanks in advance for your input :bassist:

    All good ideas from your side.
    I have bought a Reunion Blues Continental gigbag about ten years ago and have not regretted it.
    Also, a Cioks is as much fun as you can possibly have with a pedalboard PSU (I admit, this is more utility than fun).

    One pedal that can be hours on hours of fun just for experimenting is the Source Audio C4. It does everything Synth and everything Filter. You can browse thousands of presets and upload them to the pedal or you canbuld your own. Highly recommended.

    Great ideas, thanks :thumbsup: That Source Audio looks promising !

    Looking for more ideas ! :)
  5. I'd look into a decent bass preamp to run in front of your torpedo cab, upgrade that zoom to a line 6 pod go for a practice rig, get a set of decent custom mold iems or studio headphones ,maybe get a decent class d bass amp for jamming when you don't feel like hauling a power amp and pedal board.
