I started a post on FB about a wiring mod to a bass to give it more output & more brightness. I already had something in mind, but all the bass players on there wanted to do was tell me to buy this or that pedal. "I don't do pedals." just did not sink in & the same recommendations kept popping in from different folks. I want to get an amp with overdrive, and a lot of folks suggested getting a pedal instead. I'm stubborn about not wanting to buy a pedal, because then I'll be open to buying more. I also have an amp that is capable of most of the effects I should need. It's pretty loud for a little SS combo too. Surely I'm not alone in my aversion to pedals. ¿Que No?
