    No pictures yet, but by far my favorite setup out of my ~20 pedals:

    BJFE Overdrive -> Boss Bass EQ -> Maxon CP9+ Compressor -> Korg Pitchblack -> Radial JDI

    All on a pedaltrain mini. I'm on stage and set up in 5 minutes with a sound quality of a huge tube rig.

    How is a "worship band" pedal board any different from a normal pedal board?
    When I play for my church band, I don't have a collection of pedals specifically for worship. If you normally use an effect and it fits then use it. There is no right or wrong pedal for worship.
    These "which -insert equipment here- for worship?", threads are becoming just as numerous as the "best for metal" threads.
    Play any bass, amp and effect you want, God doesn't care, if you're heart's right that's all that matters. Right?

  7. Well, used sensitively, I guess any effect could be used in a worship setting, but there are some that are more useful than others. I'm going for a really stripped down setup at the moment, just bass into amp, but occasionally through my mini-board with just tuner and octave pedal.

    I'm on a break from my worship team now but I have used my Tech 21 Sansamp BDDI. Sounds great and fits in my bass case, although the sound guy usually doesn't run the bass hot enough for anyone to hear. When I go back I have built my pedalboard up to have a VT bass deluxe, Tech 21 Oxford, EHX bass microsynth, Boss OC-3, Boss TU-2 and a Boss chorus pedal. Then I have more tones people can't hear.

  11. This was my fullest setup for some time! Signal chain - Tuner - Compression - octave (down) - POG (octave up) - Bypass looper (distortion in loop with clean blend) - envelope filter - chorus - delay.

    May be time to go back to this...

    Here's mine. I'm not a big pedal guy but needed a tuner and something to boost my passive signal for running direct. It's just a GFS tuner and Behringer BDDI powered by a One Spot and carried in a $6.99 pistol case from Academy Sports. It's simple, inexpensive, and I usually get compliments on tone.:D

    depends on what type of music you play in your worship team as well :)

    for me, I used to have Boss TU-2 Tuner into a
    - DI: Sansamp BDDI / Radial Tonebone
    - Delay: Line 6 Echo Park
    - Dirty: BDDI / Boss DS-1
    - Funk: EHX Micro Q-Tron (LOVE IT)
    - wishlist: a Boss RC-2 loop station

    that's an easy one! THE DELAY PEDAL LOL .....at least for guitarists ....no delay no worship! God only enjoys guitar tones ala the Edge!

    i like a lot of christian music, i raised myself on Petra songs ...i can't beleive how one dimentional church worship has become....Lincoln Brewster ...that's more like it!

    Wow, Petra. Thats a blast from the past. You talking about the original or when they went more CC with Beyond Belief and the later albums.

  19. I just use my M13 with and expression pedal into my M-80 for tone shaping and DI functions.

    My main effects with the M13 are compression, volume pedal, delay (I have three different delays set up), chorus, and reverb. My favorite effect combo is Tube Comp -> Volume Pedal -> Analog Delay (Set for medium delay, high feedback, high mix) -> Octo Verb. Using the volume pedal for swells gives a huge ethereal pad sound that my bandmates have dubbed "Narnia."

    i laughed at the truthfulness of this.
    i run sound at my church (and i also play bass but not with the worship team) and "how loud the bass is" is always a concern. don't people understand that because you can feel the bass it ISN'T a bad thing? i like the kick to hit you in the chest and the bass to rattle your feet!

    recently we've added a Sansamp Programmable Bass Driver so the sound has improved tenfold. if i ever sub in for bass i'll probably just use my Line 6 M9. it does the job for my band's live stuff pretty darn well.
