Need the final pedal for my board

    Help me decide what should occupy the final spot on my pedalboard.

    I play in a rock/modern pop cover band and previously didn't use any pedals. I decided to get a pedaltrain nano and add a couple of pedals for flavor...

    Currently I have a tuner and an aguilar tlc on the board. I'm going to add an overdrive, which I think will be the aguilar agro (though I'm open to other suggestions).

    .....so what should occupy the final space....?

    The rest of my rig is a stingray 5 and a TH500

    Digitech Istomp. That way it's basically whatever you need

    I'd thought about that for my guitar board (also a nano, after downsizing from a monster board) - how does it sound?

    You seriously need an HBE frostbite flanger. And by complete coincidence I happen to have one for sale.

    Go with an Aguilar Octimizer or a filter twin and round out an all Aguilar setup!!!

  7. Hi Mike,
    The Petaltrain Nano petal board can comfortably hold 5 nano size (1590A) petals - maybe 6 if you squeeze them. For example, here's some "Nano" petal porn http://www.talkbass.com/forum/attachment.php?attachmentid=402404&d=1395629744 I also flipped the patch between the tuner and booster and spaced them better so now it looks better too.

    I was seriously considering this - and I'd be on with it, but thought id see what else was out there!
  9. Depends what kind of pop music you're playing but a cool synth fuzz can give you some cool sounds to play with.

    I'm very happy with it. So far it makes for excellent chorus (2 options), a nice oc2 octave clone and a DOD envelope filter that works fairly well. I'm not a dirt/distortion guy, but it offers a lot of that too.

    I guess the biggest hole in my sound is for more modern dance tunes - eg filling out the sound in the chorus of Taylor swift's 'trouble' and maybe some cool sounds to 'moves like jagger' and 'get lucky'

    One of the most under rated pedals is the Whammy. Get a Boos LS-2 to go with it.

    Synth , octaves. bends and other sounds that are hard to describe. Adding the LS-2 makes this a moy cool pedal. The LS-2 should be a requirement for every bassist with a board. First pedal a tuner, second pedal an LS-2 than whatever else will be made much better with the LS-2.
  13. what is your budget for an overdrive? What is your budget if it's going toward something other than an overdrive?

    Zoom MS-60B :you have 58 effects, can have up to 4 on at once, can save up to 50 presets and even if it's something you rarely use it's worth it. If you are looking more into a modulation aspect then take a look at the Zoom CDR-70: you have 86 effects, can have up to 6 on at once, can save 50 presets and this really has a lot to alter so you can get what you need. Also both have excellent tuners (I actually sold my TC Polytune Mini) and both can tune accurately and quickly. (I have a bass tuned DAEA and it can tune it no prob). And if you get rid of your tuner you could get both of them and your board will have an INSANE amount of tones avaliable.

    I would say something by darkglass for overdrive, an octave pedal or the digitech bass synth wah.
