    At the very minimum, I don't go anywhere without:

    EBS MultiComp
    AnalogMan Clone Chorus
    Fulltone BassDrive
    Boss TU-2

    Hmmmmm......

    Raven PMB-II
    Raven MDB-1
    Countryman DI
    LR Baggs Para DI
    Fishman Platinum Pro
    MXR M-80
    Sansamp Acoustic DI

    Just in case the studio doesn't have a DI worth a %#$@...I really want an Avalon, though...

    For effects, I usually just bring in my specialty stuff, and my Boss VF-1. Experience has shown me that any "decent" studio (home or pro) will have better effects processors than any pedal I could bring in. The VF-1 works great straight into the desk, though. Anyway, here's the others:

    Akai Unibass
    Akai Deep Impact
    Korg G5
    EBS BassIQ
     
  4. Just my little ol' pedalboard :

    - Boss TU-2 pedaltuner
    - Big Muff PI overdrive / fuzz ( customised )
    - Digitech X-bass overdriver
    - Digitech X-bass compressor
    - Digitech X-bass stereo chorus

    all i need to get the sound that i want
     
  5. The absolute bare essential for me would be ART Tube MP and Zoom 607 or Digitech BP8 depending on the studio. For live right now I am using the Art Tube MP as a DI and also a line driver into a Boss PSM-5, EHX Bass Balls, Akai Unibass, Akai Deep Impact and Zoom 607 for everything else.
     
  6. - Plywood
    - Velcro
    - Switch Box
    - Cables
    - Akai Bass Synth
    - Custom Wah, Q control feeds back into itself, making a synthlike "dirty wah" (made by myself and dave from cowtown guitars)
    - Big Muff Pi (bass mod)
    - MXR 10-band EQ
    - Unamed chorus/flanger
    - Line 6 delay
