Placement of Octabass in effects chain.....

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by ZoomBoy, Apr 2, 2001.

  1. Hi,

    I just bought an EBS Octabass and I was wondering where in my effects chain would be the best place for it. Currently I run these effects in this order in my amps loop:

    105Q wah pedal
    EH Bassballs
    EBS Unichorus

    I'm not sure if the best place for the Octabass is before the wah or after but I know that the chorus should be last and I think the wah should be ahead of the bassballs.

    Any suggestions are appreciated!

  2. Well.. try both positions out and see what you like best, but my guess would be octabass before wah. The octabass works by tracking a note, and I would guess that this is easiest when it has the purest signal.. but who knows, you might end up making a crazy sound that you absolutely love with the two pedals reversed.
  3. yeah. try them in whatever order you think sounds best. and by the way ehx bassballs is the coolest pedal in the world.
