For my upright (play jazz in a combo) I am using a Boss GEB-7 EQ pedal and an fdeck with my combo amps (GK 150, GB 3.0 8T). I am trying to improve the tone to avoid boominess (especially around E and F on the D string) and improve presence and clarity in higher pitches. For now, I am using the tried and true method of trial and error- slow going as it is difficult to change settings during a song. One thing I have been trying is experimenting with order and placement of the pedals and thought that some of you more knowledgeable than I might have a definitive response to the following: 1. What are the advantages/ disadvantages of the placement of the pedals- either before the amp input or through the effect send? 2. What impact does the order of the pedals have? fdeck first? EQ pedal first? One or the other through the send? Constructive suggestions are appreciated- thanks.
