    A local store is having a special offer on buy 2 and get a third pedal free. So looking at their stock and bearing in mind where I live there is not a lot of options so from their available stock I consider these as my main options:

    MXR Bass Pre amp
    MXR Bass Envelope Filter M82
    MXR Bass Octave Deluxe M288
    Wampler Ego Comp
    MXR ISO Brick

    So, if I were to get three of these pedals, which three would it be and what do I replace from my existing pedalboard. Or do I add one and replace just two!!

    Tuner has already been replaced by a D'Addario tuner and for power I'm using a Mooer Macro Power S8.

    Save your money. None of those pedals are going to do things your existing pedals won’t already do.

    Alternatively, ditch the Mooer and the Zoom, and buy the Envelope Filter, the Octave Deluxe, and the ISO Brick.

    First off, that board looks quite functional.
    Only if you really want to replace something, demo the octave deluxe to see if it tracks better than your mooer.
    If no, save your money for something really special down the road.
    If yes, my choices are:
    the mxr pre - has an XLR out which is useful.
    octave deluxe - again, only if it tracked better
    iso brick - its good to have more isolated power supplies than not enough

    Thanks for the replies. Yeah I think the Octave deluxe will defintiely track better than the Mooer and originally i was just looking to replace that but then the offer came up. Might go back to original plan and just buy the Octacve Deluxe and forget about the offer.
