    I have a set of custom molded Alclair CMVKs. Best investment in gear I have ever made.

    For me it goes in cycles. I'm in a less is more cycle right now. At the moment, I really like the sound of basses just plugged in straight. I'm playing:

    TC Polytune - SFX Thumpinator - Broughton LPF - Becos Comp - Out to my Amp.

    Yep, I'm currently:

    Tuner --> REDDI --> FOH/IEM

    I think for church this is all I need.
    My effects debate happens more for my cover band.

    On my pedal board the only effect is a Zoom CDR, which is set to a smooth jazz delay
    I play fretless in church, but only use it when needed like when we have no drums.
    So I would say I play straight up most of the time
    I have never been an effects guy, guess I’m old school

    So if I can get past the menu/programming part, an HX Stomp, tuner, and Rolls would fit on my Nano. I just need to set a couple presets for songs with chorus, filter, and drive. Have a default with an always on compressor and bam.

    Using HX Edit makes it a lot easier and faster.

    Why not just the tuner on the Stomp?

    This is true but once you get the hang of it, creating patches on the Stomp is not bad either.

    Yep or if you are wanting the 3 button for stomp/snapshots, a 2"x2" MIDI Baby would work great to trigger the tuner (and 2 other functions)

    Agreed. But I think HX Edit makes it easier to see and learn all the options and settings. Once you know they are there, adjusting them on the unit isn't too bad. I just have a feeling that, jumping right into the unit, a new user is unlikely to realize all the settings available.

    Even simpler (non-MIDI and passive) is a simple two button footswitch plugged into Exp 1/2.

    According to a few guitar playing friends it’s not as “accurate” but who knows lol

    I suppose I could just use the tuner on the stomp if I went that direction, but I have the space and I like the dedicated tuner option. Maybe frees up a button on the HX? Idk.

    It’s still a $600 pedal for maybe 3-4 tunes a gig. I’m not in a hurry to do it, just thinking as I get a little jealous of all your fancy pedalboards.

    They show up a lot used, which may or may not mean anything. Idk, I really like my simple bass to REDDI to FOH set up.

    Sure if you buy new. I see some go for as low as $450 used on Reverb.

    Brand new for $480 shipped w/ no tax at Prymaxe. I know some people hate the company, but they've never done me wrong. It's where I bought mine during a 25% off sale

    Honestly the zoom B3N is a solid alternative, that can also double up as practice unit it does not sound as good as the hx stomp but it has a lot more friendly user interface plus drum machine. I recently spent the whole last month comparing the 2 side by side and I’m pretty happy with my B3N, also Marcus Miller has a B3N on his board so take that as you will also.

    I'll check it out. Thanks.

    I have explored the Zoom option as well. I debated it a few years ago. Like I said, I don't use effects much so I don't want to spend too much, yet I want a bit of quality. I am running a REDDI tube DI.

    I would look at the Boss Core also. It has more blocks available in the processor if needed.
    Low budget option: Zoom B3N or Boss GT-1B. I have both and prefer the Boss.
    Edit to add: Low budget but not low quality if you spend some time with it to figure it out on either of them.

    It's gotta fit on a Nano with my Tuner and Rolls PM50s for my IEM's. That doesn't leave much room. I can put a CIOKS power supply underneath.
