    I think this is my first takbass post after years of lurking.

    I'm playing Peavey T-40s into a Mark VIII head with a 1*15 cabinet. I may also be playing a Washburn XB600(?) 6 string fretless.

    My effects are
    MArk VIII head (compression and chorus and graphic eq)
    Aphex 1402 Bass Exciter
    EHX Big Muff Bass Deluxe
    Boss AW-3 Dynamic Wah
    Digitech BP-80 (which I rarely use).

    for this concert (the new Florida State University Modern/Rock Ensemble) I'm playing :
    Rush : Natural Science (compression at the amp for a little grit)
    Stevie Wonder: You Haven't Done Nothing : (during the Bass solo , planning on using the AW-3, toying with the idea of the whammy on the digitech)
    Sleater Kenney : Turn It On (Fuzz)

    I am thinking of using the Digitech for a tuner, volume pedal (for switching basses), perhaps the amp sim and maybe whammy for fun.

    I'm thinking the chain should be
    Digitech - Boss - EHX - Aphex

    but I'm not at all sure about where the Aphex should be.

    Thanks In Advance,

    not that it matters, but the other songs that bass will be running through my chain for:
    The Civil Wars: Barton Hollow
    Stephen Wilson :Routine
    “Madness at the Core of Time” (Gwar)
    “Ramblin’ Man” (Allman Brothers)
    “Maneater” (Hall and Oates)
    Billion Dollar Babies (Alice Cooper)
    Alice in Chains : Dem' Bones
    Television : Elevation
    “Rock The Casbah” (The Clash)
    “You’ve Got Another Thing Coming” (Judas Priest)
    “White Room” (Cream)
    “Rock Around the Clock” (Bill Haley and the Comets)
