    Not really pedals, but a rack effect and a mixer to combine paths.
    Picked up a used dbx 166XL compressor the other day for dirt cheap at my local GC. Then yesterday got my 3-way mixer delivered from saturnworks. So now my chain goes:
    Fender Amer Stan Jazz/Fender Amer Stan P
    Input A/B
    Buffered Splitter
    A) Bass Big Muff (A-effect out B-dry out)
    A) Rat>
    B) Pitchfork
    Looper (Tube Screamer/Boss AW-3)
    <<<active 3-way bass mixer (clean full, dirt 8 o’clock, effects 11 o’clock)
    MXR 10-band EQ
    ART TubeMP Preamp
    Ampeg BA-115
    Send>dbx 166XL>Return

    So i have three separate paths that i can adjust levels of with the mixer, one clean, one just the always on dirt (either Rat or Bass Big Muff on) and one with Pitchfork always on with octave up and down but blend down around 8 o’clock-so barely on-and the auto wah (with the TS to boost it a little), chorus and delay. Played with it a little last night and like the results so far. Can’t wait for my next day off Tuesday so i can really dig in and finetune everything!
