    This is my perfect set-up: everything has a purpose and not just kinda of there but ALL plays well. I'm GAS free in regards to effect pedals and only want an EBOW-PLUS and I'm good for a long time. Even found the perfect strings, amp, head, basses and overall everything!

    What do you all think?

  9. Going to get an actual pedal board this week. I've been holding off because I wasn't sure on what size (Still am not sure) but I can't take this thing any longer... Will post again once I get it but for now...

    Love this thread awready.
     
  11. My setup is a bit lacking right now...possibly an updated pic soon though! I'm having a lot of fun running TAFM - Delay - Reverb - Delay.

    I MEAN, I WOULD BE HAVING FUN IF I USED EFFECTS. BUT I DON'T BECAUSE FUZZ IS IN THE FRAGILE UPPER HARMONIC TONE FINGERS DUMBLE.

    Wait, what...?
     
  12. I've been messing with the order of a few things lately.

    [​IMG]

    The chain is OC-2> Orbit> Gnome> SYB-5> BEF> Micro Chorus> 105Q> Wasabi> RC-2> Peavey Firebass 700 and a Peavey 115. I've been moving my fuzz, octave, and synth pedals around a bit for giggles.

    Hi, my name is G and I use effects because I can. My pedalboard is the spice rack of my kitchen of sound. I do enjoy some plain ol' meat-n-potatoes bass guitar sometimes it just needs some ketchup on that ****.

    [​IMG]

    Achieved pedal tetris level 10 (now the music gets faster!). Stuffed a itsy bitsy Malekko pedal in there just to feel the might of so many effects crammed into such a small package. Well they feel fat and heavy. My pick-up-n-go board needs a diet. This board weighs in at 18lbs not including the case and other spares kept with it.

    The Trem won't be staying long. Don't know what use I will find with tremolo. This was my first experimentation with tremolo. Think I was looking for a choppy/stroboscopic/square wave type trem sound to play with and the Malekko doesn't do that.
    Powering 10 pedals is a PITA. There needs to be a power brick with 16 or more isolated connections... with switchable 9/12/18 voltage. Companies must step up to power our pedal addiction.

    Just got this all hooked up last night. Lovin' it...

    Silly signal chain:

    Bass>Schism>geb7>compressore

    Ch1: OC-2
    Ch2: OC-2(soon to be replaced by the cubic)>Oxide>ESR in>FrantaBit<ESR send>M5>ESR return>Xerograph>Nimbus

    The ESR let's me change the order. I can have Franta>m5>xero, or xero>franta>m5

    The broadcast is controlling the freq on the Xero

    I get paid to stand out...

    But this is all I need:

    To reach my pedals, of course. :bag:

    I'm waiting on a few things before posting any pics. My board is fairly meager at the moment.

    Sterling, that big board is ridiculous. STOOPID in fact.

    How does the Nimbus play with the Oxide?

    Hahhah ahahah hahahha hahaha ahhaha ahhahah aa ahaha ahah aa hahaa hahahahaha ahaha aha aha ha!!!!,... uh...ha, ha, ... heh, heh....

    oh my... (wiping tears from my eyes)...

    Seriously guys (I use this term for gals too, btw), f***ing sweet board set ups here, the big and the little! Clearly we all want to create something new and interesting, not reproduce what others 'expect' a bass to sound like. To quote my avatar, "We are the dream makers, and we are the dreamers of the dream". (yeah, I'm sure he was quoting someone else, still rings true!)

    [rant]
    Music is more about creative audio expression than wrote regurgitation. I wish others would vomit their negative opinions during their 'we clean bassists are so under appreciated' group therapy sessions and leave the rest of us out of it.

    The 'I don't use effects because I want my bass to sound the way a bass is supposed to' is tantamount to stuffed shirt 'pro' players telling me I should ditch my Thumb and get a P-Bass to be considered a real bass player. Yeah fella, tell that to Ryan Martinie and I hope he punches you in nose with a copy of his interview in Bass Player Magazine...

    Wankers... Makes me wonder what their sex life is like... "no honey, I must always be on top because that is how a man is supposed to make love". Sad really... :rollno:
    [/rant]

    Anyhoo....

    Here is my board again for the new thread.... TAFM is off to Brian H for a gate footswitch.... Yay for me!!! :hyper:
