I'm trying to figure out how to improve my fading sound. I'm playing a 1975 Rick into a Digitech BP200, going into a DI box straight into a board - no bass rig. Here's the problem, though - the pedal has sucked for me live. I was full up on the board, full up on the bass and it still was barely making a peep. My sound guy tried to play with the compression on the pedal, but it didn't do much. Later, I had the Rick checked and it was fine. So, I figure I should probably upgrade my pedal. Obviously, the BP200 hasn't worked well for me live. I've heard that the Boss ME50B or the GT-6B would be a good choices, but I don't know if I'm just being sold the latest thing that's been overstocked. My experience with effects in general is pretty limited, so I don't want to choose poorly without some guidance. I've proven I can choose poorly without it already. I'm not looking to do anything crazy with 50 different distortion choices and the like, we're a fairly straightforward band - but I'd like the potential to go nuts if the need arises, or if I just wanna. Anybody have any thoughts, before I hit the store?
