Hey everyone. This is my first post and I'm sorry if I'm asking something that has already been talked about. I've playing since high school and toured with bands during/after college. I've always been a "less is more" kind of person. Example: for the longest time when touring with my band my pedal board was Bass =>Tuner => SansAmp => amp/cab. I've been off the road for a while now and might be heading back out in June so I've been trying to build my pedal board up a little more. Now my set-up goes Marcus Miller Signature Jazz Bass => Tuner => Aphex Punch Factory => Ernie Ball VPjr => Voodoo Lab SparkleDrive => EHX Bass Big Muff => SansAmp BDDI =>MarkBass Little Mark II =>Ampeg SVT-610HLF Before adding all the stuff I've always kept my SansAmp on all the time to get my clean tone. Now when I have it on if kick on the VLSD or the Big Muff they don't sound right and I can't get the tones I want from them. Any help would be great. Thanks a lot. I love reading through these forums.
