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.

    I guess I could add some cool overdrive pedal to it as well.
  13. Direct from my wishlist:

    Crowther Audio Prunes & Custard
    Guyatone MD2 Digital Delay
    EBS Octabass
    Volume Pedal of some variety
    Akai Head Rush (a boomerang, if I could afford it)
    Akai SB-1 Bass Synth
    MXR Phase 90
    Digitech Whammy

    Not to mention:

    Boss DR-770 Drum Machine
    Korg Pandora PX3B

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