    Re: Bass pedals

    Had an Electro Harmonix "Bass Muff"-

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

    Used it for all my bass guitar work, aswell for electric guitar. Had an awesome "clean blend" knob, aswell as "dry out" and "wet out" jacks...

    Also had a Boss "Bass EQ" at one point, sold it...

    I haven't tried a compressor with a blend control yet. I'll have to try that some time. Which of those compressors do you like?

    Not being a bass player, I find that a compressor with a blend knob tends to help me keep the tone consistent.

    We've played a bunch of gigs with nothing more than that DI and a tuner. Those things are really solid and sound great.

    That's about it for my bass pedals. There is a chorus downstream in the board effects loop. It's a Rockman Stereo Chorus/Delay.

    Re: Bass pedals

    I don't play bass anymore-

    After i lost my 5 bass guitars, 2 amps, 3 cabs- and effect pedals (EH bass muff, Behringer Tube Overdrive, Boss bass EQ,)

    In a fire. :/

    But, maybe some day- after my 5 years of paying off debt-

    I can save up to buy a simple bass, and an amp.

    Until then, I'm stuck with an electric guitar rig .

    (The EH Bass muff, was/is a great pedal!! With a blend control and everything. The apartment owner stole it, while "cleaning" my apartment, while I was away... Tried making a case, with a free lawyer,,, but I'm losing the case, since I cant "Prove" that I ever owned the pedal..)

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
