    Always on: OD, compression, Submarine
    Followed by fuzz
    then chorus
    then octave
    then envelope filter
    then Wah
  4. Akai UniBass is probably the one switched on/off the most but then the Zoom B2 is always on "Bassman in the room" setting.

    Holy buffered bypass Batzman!!


    Where is that from, is that yours?

    whoever it is, god forbid if you lightly or Jokingly teased him for fun, and mentioned Boss sucks or something like that........I think he might be offended:D

    Still would be awesome to have all those pedals.

    Compression is always on, overdrive most of the time, fuzz, chorus & flanger only get used on a few songs.

    My FEA Growler is always on. My Aguilar Octamizer is also usually on. My SFX Dual Red Dragon doesn't have an off switch, so is always on. My SA Multiwave Distortions are always on because I have clean EQ settings as well as distortions. Finally my Eventide Space Reverb is almost always on because I like at least a little reverb with everything.
  18. BMS on different settings is on 99 percent of the time, sometimes i switch on my big muff if i want to add some more bite to my BMS...
    up to now i have never used an echo or a flanger on a bass and i think for a rhythm instrument like the bass its kinda senseless but i could be wrong :p mybe tap tempo delay would be nice ;)
