  1. Hi all, for a while there's a thread at Harmony Central that shows the pedalboars of famous guitarists. Its for guitar players but very cool nevertheless. I'd like to start a similar thread over here at Talkbass, but solely for bass players then.

    So if you've got pictures of the pedalboard of some famous bassplayers... Feel free to post 'm!

    It's comforting to know that these guys sometimes even use the gear that they're in the ads for! ;)

  13. Sticky this. It'll avoid all the "I want that _____ sound. What effects do they use?" questions.

    I belive its a DD-6 not a DD-3
  15. I second making this a sticky!

    BRMC had some excellent tones coming from the bass effects when I saw them three years ago...

    It hardly translates to record, unfortunately. And I think there was a good amount of improvising as far as effects went live that are not on recorded versions.

  16. It is a DD-3.
  17. This is a little misleading.

    1.) That is not a Sansamp BDDI but a Sansamp GT2 distortion. Trust me JC does not use the BDDI (no need to with a Wal bass and Demeter VTB201 pre amp).
    2.) All those Lovetone effects for a FACT are not used by JC. This is a studio picture. In the studio it was Joe Barrisi who had Justin try out all the lovetone and line6 effects yet not one of them appears on the 10k days album.

    His final pedalboard that he uses live looks like this


    I know it is far away but I am 100% positive it is this

    Boss TU-2 tuner (or LS)->Guyatone VTX tube tremelo->Digitech Bass Whammy->Sansamp GT2->Boss Ce-5->Boss BF2->Boss DD3->Guyatone BR2->Colorsound Tone Bender->Prunes & Custard->Foxx Fuzz/wah reissue (NOT in this pic but I saw it live with my own two eyes in DC as he had to wait for the reissue to get out on the market and then added to his board later in the tour)

    Also his whammy dry out goes to Pro Co Rat Turbo->Boss GEB-7 EQ-> second amp for dirty channel. (You can see the rat and eq "above" his main stomp pedals). The other stuff is random power strips, a small desk/reading light, and voodoo power supply.

    Yes I am a fanboy. :D

    Here is the picture from the inner cover of Out of Exile of Tim's pedalboard...
    1. Boss Super Octave
    2. Sadowsky Outboard Pre-Amp/D.I.
    3. Custom ABY Amp Selector
    4. Custom 'Full on' Overdrive

    6. DC Brick
    7. Two Dunlop 105Q Bass Wahs
    8. Boss DD-3 Delay
    9. Custom Overdrive (maybe)

    And a close up of what jujube posted... the touring board, few effects just used for the album are gone.

    See the rest in it's original form here...http://www.audioslaved.com/modules.php?name=Forums&file=viewtopic&t=6993
