    Re: Bass pedals

    Updated my board. Replaced the One Spot with a Donner “isolated” supply. Not sure if it really is isolated, but it has a ton out outlets and even with an OD and fuzz on, it’s silent.

    D’Addario Chromatic Tuner
    EHX Bass Balls mini
    SolidgoldFX Beta Hi Gain
    Way Huge Seollen Pickle
    Boss TR-2 Tremolo
    Donner RevEcho
    Boss RC-20XL

      Re: Bass pedals

      No pedals yet but looking to add a compressor when I get some money not earmarked for essentials
      Narrowed it down to the M87, the studio bass, or maybe earthquaker Warden cuz it seems to add a little color that sounds nice in demos

        I’m gonna get a Boss CS-2, purely because it’s Juan Alderete’s favorite pedal.

          When I use a bass effect (besides the rack Aphex Aural Exciter)
          It's a Keeley 4 knob compressor.
          But the new Ibanez really doesn't need it.

            Re: Bass pedals

            Let's face it...bass just does not need that many pedals. But I do! Fortunately I play guitar mostly...


            Comp
            Octave
            OD/Fuzz
            Synth
            Chorus
            Optional: Wah

            Man - there isn't much you can't do with that. And that's a pretty big board right there.I almost never want Delay/Verb on a bass and never see bass players use it.

              I really wanted that MXR M87 pedal. Soooo much good press on it! Ended up with Boss Limiter because of good deal.

                There isn't much you can do with that? Dude, wtf?

                It really depends on the setting, I suppose. If we're talking most rock bands, yeah, no need for anything. If we're talking me hanging out with my looper, I always use delay and reverb. I'll turn on my fuzz with the Bassballs in front, and play weird synth stuff. If I loop a bassline to play melodically over, I'll do it with a fretted bass, then double it with my fretless with light tremolo.

                The difference in bass and guitar is really in the attitude of the musicians.

                      This inspired me to go to Talk Bass. Whole sub forum on bass pedals there....

                          Re: Bass pedals

                          The bassplayer of my band had a EHX Bassballs. Quite cool effect (enveloppe filter).

                          I bought one bass effect : MXR Bass Distortion (inspired by the RAT circuit but it has dry knob and a wet knob).
                          MXR has a nice selection for bassplayer.

                            Have your bass player run the Bassballs with the distortion switch on in front of a fuzz pedal set moderately. It gets really compressed and sounds like a really wicked synth.

                                That looks interesting. I'll have to check that out.
