Played bass for decades with a bass and amp only (and about 2 years ago starting playing the big boy, an upright). Just got my first set of pedals and seem to be collecting them quicker than I can use them! Have used them sparingly at gigs, almost embarrassed to squash something on the floor like a stomp box, but truly like the sounds that they produce. Chorus and Reverb together add to a ballad or jazz standard and I use them with my fretless at home all the time. OD has become my pedal of choice when I want to stand out a little from the band and it sounds even nicer when coupled with other effects. Is this common? Your first pedal makes you want to buy and use more and more pedals. I've already secured a Pedal Train and I think that I'm on the road to ruin.
