    Need to get that nice fat tone you hear in the absolutely fantastic bass lines you here in urban gospel music. I play contemporary Christian and country. Mainly a guitar player but have been playing bass at church for about 25 years. Play ibanez btb455qm w/actives

    here's a modest pedal board with lot's of Hi-Fi ability. i have a Ditto to add extra tracks > Broughton Power Stage is a high voltage tube boost stage that can get lightly dirty or clean > Smoothie compressor with tone coloration > Mooer Graphic B to tame the room > EBS Octabass for adding drama to a song or passage.
    i don't play gospel, but i'm sure you can find an even better solution in less pedals if you really do the research.

    That's what I figured I would try. Do the pedals have tubes or tube modeling in them. Someone told a tube amp can give you that clean warm fat sound

    the Broughton has a tube, but tube modeling pedals are very abundant.

    my thoughts would be compression and maybe try different strings.

    A good compressor like the Markbass and a Wren & Cuff Phat Phuk B will get you there.

    Thanks for the advise. The pedal world can be confusing

    Couple of tonal options here along side a G&L ASAT, a Cabronita P bass and a starcaster image.

    this pedal should get you there, is very versatile and is a pretty fantastic deal for what you get in one package:

    TECH 21 - SansAmp VT Bass DI

    I haven't yet tried this myself, but it's on the shortlist.

    I've also played with a couple of compressors (MXR, Aguilar), and neither of those got me where I wanted to be when used in isolation...if you want just one pedal, I'd go overdrive. The Solid Gold FX Beta is also on my radar -- haven't played it yet, but it seems to be very flexible and easy to use and should get you where you want to be. The youtube demos sound really good.

    Could one get this sound out of a zoom B3? If so anyone have the settings?
