Before my (well deserved) 30 day time out, we were putting together a list of pedals for me. You guys gave me TONS of feedback and I appreciate it. I had zero pedals in my 30 year bass career before this. Here's what I wound up with. Boss Tuner pedal (old trusty) - but might swap it our later for something better EHX Black Finger - will sometimes be a compressor as designed. Sometime set below clip as a tube tone warmer - depends on the band Aguilar Octomizer - thuddy low octave under brighter high octave EHX Soul Food (JHS Bread and Butter mod) - little bit o' dirt (bass boost switch on this one is brilliant) MXR M81 EQ to use as a stomp box (not always on) to fatten up my bridge pickup soloed. It's a Duncan NYC 5 at the bridge (passive with only volume and tone) that sounds too burpy by itself. Fattened up with the M81 it doesn't nail the MM tone, but it gets in the ballpark. Rolls Red Square DI in case I go direct from this rig to the board. I usually won't. But it will be there in case I (or anyone else in the band) need it. Cioks AC10 to power it all up - will mount underneath Pedaltrain Novo 18 to set 'em on....and a little room to grow I think it's a good pedal noob start to see which direction this journey will take me. The obvious question, as always, is what order to put the effects in. Whataya think? Thanks!
