    hi TB`ers!! i`v got a serious doubt here and `m sure u can help me. i have a BOSS ME-30 guitar effects pedal (originally for my guitar, but works like a charm 4 me bass) and wanted to buy a Zoom 506II Multi Effects Bass Pedal. Well, here is the beef: i don`t know if i`m gonna be able to link`em at once and mix the effects. I`m relatively new to bass playin and i`ve seen tis with the Danelectro and DOD stompboxes, so i thought i was gonna be able to do it.
    thanks anyway!!
    Up the Irons!!!!!!!!!!!

    Just plug them together as if you're linking effects pedals. Bass >> Multi Effect 1 >> Multi Effect 2 >> Amp.

    the output of effect 1 goes into the input of effect 2.

    Choose one of the multis to be first (there is no right or wrong here, but you may find you like the sound of the Zoom before the Boss, or the Boss before the Zoom, try it both ways to see what you like) plug your bass into the first effect box in the chain, then run a cable from the output of the first effect box to the input of the second effect box, run a cable from the output of the last effect box into your amp, play.

    It's all right to mix different brands of pedals together. I've got three stompboxes and they are all made by different companies.
