    So... Any pedalboard changes lately? TremoLo and supersymmetry replaced by vintage microtubes and Aguilar TLC, no other changes.

    While the TremoLo is awesome for slow stuff I hardly ever use it and the VMT overdrive is too good to not be onboard.
    TLC compressor because my sound is more punchy with that. I did have to tame the treble on my amp EQ a bit because the mellowing qualities of the supersymmetry are now no longer present.

    I ran a bunch of Boss pedals in the Boss pedal board; Boss BCB60 Pedal Board; Boss CS3 Compressor; OC3 Octave Pedal; Boss LMB 3 Limiter Enhancer; AW3 Dynamic Wah; TC Electronics DittoX2 Loop Pedal; TC Electronic Polytune Tuner Pedal; this lot worked a treat however although I felt the board was just too big and the Boss pedals a little awkward to use; I wanted to downsize and upgrade so I bit the bullet and sold off the Boss collection to part fund my new, well thought out and much improved stomp rack; it now consists of the Dunlop Bass Wah, MXR Bass Compressor; MXR Bass Octave Deluxe (best tracking octave pedal out there); TC Corona Chorus; Rodenburg GAS808 (excellent fuzz) and the 3 Leak Audio Proton EF which gives me great funky synth tones. I now use effects a lot more but at the same time much more focused to specific parts or phrases. I love the evolution, the journey - next; well Moog are looking tasty BassMuRF; and great thread James Hoy; Cheers Dave IMG_2243.jpg IMG_2244.jpg

    Its giving the old Mutron III sounds and is great when I don't want to use the bass wah pedal; I can get really fine adjustment over the filter sweep and with the wet adjustment on the amp effects loop I get a lovely blend; really great sound for some of our funk and dance

    This board sits between the bass and the amp:

    fx_aug2016_1.jpg

    Added: RedWitch ZEUS octaver/fuzz. Removed: Darkglass B7K Ultra, Aguilar TLC compressor.

    And this little stack sits behind the amp, in the fxloop:

    fx_aug2016_2.jpg
    The little bronze thingie is a Fredenstein V.A.S. compressor which allows sidechaining and comping. It compresses the sound coming out of the amplifier's pre section thus includes the amp's EQ settings. This compressor is an upgrade from the Darkglass SuperSymmetry and Aguilar TLC. It is completely neutral.

    Because I don't want the compressor to mainly respond to the low end, the EQ on the amp is set pretty much neutral and is only used for little tweaks rather then sculpting the tone in a broad sense. For boosting the low end, cutting the mids a very little and removing the sub-lows (31hz and lower) I use the MXR ten band EQ. As the compressor raises the signal level by quite a bit I use the gain and volume controls on the MXR EQ to lower it back to its normal level.

    The difference I notice between earlier configurations and this current one is now ALL my basses sound really good with the same EQ settings on the amp where before I constantly had to tweak the EQ and pre-shape settings when switching instruments.

    Because the EQ and compressor are always on they will sit behind the bass stack on stage rather then on the fxboard.

    Cutting the sub-lows means the stack is not as sensitive to room acoustics and can be used a lot louder without the 12" cones breaking up or the neighbours complaining.
    The Redwitch fuzz is out of this world. Sounds REALLY awesome. When combining the octaver and fuzz the stack sounds like its broken. Lovely!

    Well since the comp will probably always be on, you might as well stick it with the amp and leave room on the board for stompboxes you actually operate in between or during songs, no?

    I finally just got this today. I haven't had much time to dial it in, but to start off with, it does have some good bottom end.

    But this is not "Pedal Board" friendly, it's a big dude, and weighs as much as much as a Wah. For reference here's a pic with some other pedals


    20170105_173436.jpg

    I'll post some sound stuff as soon as I dial it in......Passive and Active.

    But for $55.00 either way, it looks cool, and I'll keep it :)

    Power supply is off the board, the Zeus fuzz did not like to be near it.
    I used to have two Thomann powersupplies but the B7K acted up on those and the Nemesis delay had a 50hz hum going on because of those. Everything is now powered by a T-Rex Fuel-Tank and all is fine.

    Good PSU ... Vewwy impotent!

    Totally. Either way, keep it there even if it's unplugged. Anything with an old school vu meter = badass.

    I don't use or have any real interest in other stomp boxs so I'm fine with the size of this. Its still a compact little board which does everything I need.

    I'm not big on effects.

    That´s a very cool board, Marco. TBH I´ve been wanting a Bass Envelope Phaser for some time.
