I’ve been playing bass for about 25 years. Rock, R&B, Jazz, funk, reggae, fusion... I usually play going from bass straight into amp, no effects. Once in a while, I’ll use a MuTron III or octave pedal, but that’s about it. Looking through the pages of Talkbass, and more importantly, seeing other players on gigs, it appears I’m in the minority. Is it true most players use some sort of effects board? It seems Bass players’ pedal boards often are as large and diverse as guitarists... What say you, Talkbass?
