    Hi Rockers.

    Im kinda new into gear. And for my new band i have to get a Pedal chain. But im a noob when it comes to cables and stuff.

    My equipment will be:
    Spector Legend 4 Bass
    Fender Rumble 500 Combo

    - Polytune
    - Sansamp Bass Driver programmable DI
    - Boss Ceb 3 Chorus
    - Boss FB-3 Flanger

    Which and how many cables do i need for this chain and what will be the best way to set it up? Have in mind that im new with this :D

    Thank you so much guys!

    My 2 cents:

    Polytune => Chorus=> Flanger =>Sansamp

    You want to feed your tuner with the cleanest possible signal, and end your chain with the DI, if you want to use it as a DI, or go ampless, otherwise, your modulation effects will not reach the FOH. I you plan to use it just as a dirt pedal, I would put it after the tuner, before the modulations. It only depends on your goals.

    As for chorus and Flanger, if you want to use them both at the same time, experiment and find what is more pleasant to your ears.

    You will need 3 daisy chain cable, plus one cable from your bass to your pedals, and another one from your pedals to your amp.

    Thanks for your response :D So just to see if i got it right. I think i will use it as a dirt pedal. So i will go tuner - sansamp - Chorus - Flanger. With the bass into my tuner pedal or? And which end should go into the amp? Yes sorry, but like i said im kinda new with this :D Before i were just plug and play into an amp.

    Yes, the bass into the tuner, and the pedals to your amp. You got it right.
