I am not a big pedal guy HOWEVER, as time goes along my Korg DT1 found a friend, Sansamp Bass Di Deluxe (great "metal grind" versus fuzzy distortion), then he found the Hartke Bass Attack (a MUST for heavy rock/metal players IMHO), and then a few of our original songs I switch to bridge pickup and use chorus or flange. I also do some more traditional rock/southern rock with another project as well. Now, there I have a bunch of individual pedals, patch cables, 9v batteries or a wall bug with tentacles, points of failure etc etc. What is the general consensus, should I commit and nail these into a pedal case/board and keep going, or consider a multi-stompbox unit like Line6 M13, or Rocktron Utopia B300...? My concern on them, I dont want cheesy sounding effects nor any of my attack or tone getting sucked out.
