Your Dream EFFECT Rig

Discussion in 'Effects [BG]' started by ImNotGeddyLee, Nov 11, 2001.

  1. I liked the one in the amps section so i figured i'd start one up here. Sure, its probably been done but atleast not in a while.
    Here's mine:
    DBX Compressor/Gate
    Real McCoy Custom 3 Wah-Wah Pedal
    Fulltone Bass Driver
    Budda Bass Driver
    Moogerfooger LowPass Filter
    Electro Harmonix MicroSynth
    Akai UniBass
    EBS Unichorus
    TC Electronic Chorus/Flanger
    Digitech bass Whammy
    Line 6 Delay Modeler
    complete with Monster Cables and line selector box for every box.
  2. I am working toward mine so soon my dream will become reality!!!

    Gibson Echoplex w/foot controller
    Boss VF-1 w/foot controller
    EH bass MicroSynth
    Mu-tron 3+
    Digitech Whammy
    Line 6 DM-4 Distortion Modeler w/expression pedal

    What do you all think?? I think it will be pretty phat once I get it all. Too bad I will have to read all kinds of manuals.:(

    I really just need one or two more effects to make my "dream" rig. Here's how it will look someday:

    In a 6 space rack:
    Furman PL-8 (I know it's not an effect, but it will be in the rack)
    Korg DT1Pro Tuner
    Digital Music Corp Guitar Audio Switcher (MIDI controlled channel selection unit, has 8 loops that have many purpose but I use them for switching effects.)
    Boss ODB-3 (which may be modified or replaced one day)
    MXR Phase 90
    Danelectro Dan-Echo
    Boss BF-2 Flanger
    Digital Music Corp. Ground Control, to control the Guitar Audio Switcher.

    That's what I have, what I want is an envelope filter and a synth effect. I don't know if these will be seperate units, or a multi effect that actually has good sounds of both.

    Anyway, all my effects will sit in a rack under the Guitar Audio Switcher and the Ground Control pedal tells the Switcher to add/remove loops from the chain. Making everything true bypass in a way.

    Stuck on a rock !
    I'm pretty close to my ultimate chain

    Boss loop select pedal split into 2 chains

    Chain 1
    Akai Deep Impact
    EBS octabass

    Chain 2
    EBS Bass IQ
    Boss Bass Chorus

    Then the o/p from the loop selector is fed into an EBS multi comp.

    The only thing I'm likely to replace is the Boss Bass Chorus (what can I say, I didn't know any better when I bought it... I hadn't been here !)
  8. i would say:

    crybaby 95Q bass wah
    ebs octabass
    ibanez phat head bass overdrive
    dod fx62 bass stereo chorus
    boss bass equaliser
    boss fv-50 volume pedal

    thats all i need, cant image much else
    cya later
  9. Here's my dream fx rig:

    (Tech 21 Bass Compacter)
    Boss LS-2 Line Selecter:


    Loop 1

    Digitech Bass Whammy
    EH Big Muff
    Boss PH-3 Phase Shifter
    Boss TR-2 Tremolo
    Dunlop Bass Wah

    Loop 2

    (EBS Octobass)
    EH Q-Tron + (EH Small Stone in FX Loop)
    (EBS MultiDrive)
    (EBS Small Clone)


    (Boss NS-2 Noise Selector)
    Boss ME-8B (for Chorus,Flange,Delay,Reverb & Tuner)
    Boss EV-5 Volume Pedal
    Line 6 Delay Modeller (For Looping)

    Trace Elliot AH300SMX Head with DBX Subharmonic Synth in FX Loop

    The pedals in brackets I haven't got yet! And yes I know it's ridiculous!

    :) :)
  10. Whoops that should be EH Small Clone and Boss NS-2 Noise Suppressor. My brain's getting confused, imagine the effect on my feet!

    I know Doug Wimbish has got a stupidly large set-up. Anyone know of any others bass players with fx addiction problems!:oops:
  11. right here my good man... the list above is my plausible list. I would actually love much more.. i am an effects junky!!!
    i have 8 pedals right now (not including booster pedal on my amp, expression pedals for the moog, and the Tu-2) and I use ALL OF THEM at EVERY GIG...
    looooovvveee effects... but you have to know when to use them, and more importantly, when NOT to.

    Volume Pedal of some variety

    Korg Pandora PX3B

    I already have an EBS Unichorus and Chunk Systems 00Funk, both of which kick ass, by the way.
