    Here is my board. What should be my next pedal?

    I could lose the Delay and/or Octave pedal as they don't get used too often.

    Compressor!!! That's my only always on pedal. The Keeley bassist is my favorite.

    If I were to send you down the path I would go...it is not all the synth doodads and time benders and sound smashers, but rather a volume pedal. That's the first pedal to get in my opinion.

    That is a pretty solid board as it is.
    All the bases are covered plus with the octave-envelope-fuzz combo you can get basic synth sounds.

    What type music to you most often play?

    I'd get an OvniFx Smoothie if I had your board. If I had mine, I'd get a different compressor, or another delay pedal :D
     
  6. What's the pedal next to Boss Chorus pedal? Is it the Hooch pedal which sends a message to the bartender?

  9. Sorry about the three posts. I was getting error messages, and I thought my post was funny enough to post.

  10. How cool would that be? It's a JHS Moonshine.

    @ctbass How do you like your bass through the JHS?

    Get an LS-2 and reroute some of what you've got going for different sounds. I would move the DD-3 to first position (probably with mix maxed on hold mode), have the clean out of the delay hit the octaver then mix full chain and octave at the end with the LS-2. Or whatever, run dirt and modulation parallel.

    Get something created with human hands, just to round out the board.

    Nice! Hadn't seen that one before. I use a DD3 + DD6 both in hold mode to pretend I have a Tensor. These glitch pedals are rad but expensive.
     
  14. I freaking love this pedal but can't justify the cost for how little I'd get to use it. The guitarist in one of my bands got one for free as he used to do pedal reviews. I'm incredibly jealous and get annoyed when he doesn't use it, lol.

    I *JUST* snagged a Tensor. It is fairly overwhelming out of the box but cool as hell. I need a few hours with it to really get my head around it. I keep watching the video demos and then trying to match the cool parts.

    The use of compressors is widely advised and promoted. The only thing I can figure is that I just don't really know how to use them because in my attempts I never liked how they seem to take the dynamics out of my tone and sound…..

    I love the moonshine. I was looking for a pedal to add some mild dirt and drive. I researched many and most really squashed or muddied the tone. The Moonshine was the most transparent of all the drives I looked at.

  19. That's good to hear. I watched one of his vlogs where he answers questions, and one was about using their pedals with bass guitars. He said that any guitar pedal should work fine for bass as long as it allows the lows to pass through, and that they design all, or at least most, of their pedals with bass in mind.

    That said, I really love my Darkglass Alpha-Omega and Doug, the owner, is a great guy.
