Howdy TalkBass, I have always been a "plug and play" bass player. No effects whatsoever...ever! Lately though I have thought it would be cool to have one of those Octave Pedals and maybe something else, but I am not sure what. I guess I have 2 questions for you all. 1. Is there a "Standard" amount, or type, of effects pedals for a gigging/working bassist to have? Or expected to have? 2. If you could only have one or two of them(before GAS sets in) what would they be?
