My (virtually) finished board. I'm happy with it, but I think I want just one last thing like a Delay (Not sure wether I want something analog, or something like the Echo Park that does a good Analog effect but can do all the digital stuff too).

Posted Image

1. Fulltone FatBoost
2. Tech21 CompTortion
3. Digitech WH-4 Whammy
4. Wobo 2 Looper
5. Dunlop 105Q
6. Custom Barge Concepts VFB-2 Blender
7. Aphex Punch Factory
8. MXR Bass Auto Q
9. Tonefactor Hellbaby
10. Loopmaster Custom Mini-Looper
11. Crowther Prunes and Custard
12. Original Musitronics Mu-Tron III
13. Chunk Systems Brown Dog Gated Bass Fuzz
14. Chunk Systems Agent 00Funk Envelope Filter
15. Korg DT-10 Tuner

Chain is:
Bass>FatBoost>VFB-2>Punch Factory>DT-10>Amp

In the loop of the Barge is the Wobo into the 105Q (So i can blend my wah with clean, sounds amazing with octave down and distortion too)

Wobo Loop A>Comptortion>Whammy>Wobo A Return

Loop B>Hellbaby>P+C>Brown Dog>00Funk>Looper(Mutron in the loop)>MXR Auto Q>Loop B Return

This is my present board. Changes pretty often though. Love it to bits. Can get really really filthy and can make some very weird noises too.

The signal chain has changed again since that pic was taken. I can't remember exactly off hand but there are a couple of feedback loops and stuff.

dudewheresmybass how is the blow torch? Also, i had a go at a syb 5 yeasterday and is was not what i expected, i thought it would be better. The man in the shop then revealed to me that the expression pedal makes all the difference so naturally i asked him 'do you have one for me to use?' He said no. What a fool! lol

see, everyone talks bad about the ODB-3 (myself included), everytime i've tried one in shops i've hated the results, but a bassist from another local band used one into my rig and it didnt sound so bad, he had it set at unity gain and it seemed to dissapear in the mix when he switched it on, but set a bit louder it could have been alright.

I only use the ODB-3 for a clean boost at the moment so when i do tapping there wont be much of a volume cut. The overdrive sounds ok, but i only used it as a high gain fuzz with everything turned up.

Part of my old bass sound that you loved on those recordings was the ODB-3 into an old Marshall Guv'Nor. Either that or the other way around - I can't remember. I do like the ODB-3 for certain things, but at higher settings it does sound like a bee in a tin can.

Haha wow, never had the need for more than a footswitch for my amp. Nice and clean with the tinyest bit of reverb is the tone I use 99/9% of the time so can't imagine ever needing that many pedals. Do you lot use them ALL often or just a select few?

Pretty good, I didn't try the 105Q but I wanted something that could be activated automatically instead of having to step down on it, so that fitted the bill, plus it's very customisable so you can go for a fairly mellow more vintage sound or a more extreme modern sound. It's good anyway, and it works fine for bass or guitar.

At the moment my signal chain is simply:
Bass --> Trace Elliot dual compressor --> Boss volume pedal (tuner in sidechain) --> Amp
although at some point the Deep Impact will probably work its way in (for the octaver settings if nothing else). I'm guessing it'd be best placed before the compressor to keep the playing dynamics..?

Rich,

I always found that my Deep Impact worked best at the very start of my chain. The cable from the bass plugged directly into it. YMMV.

Hi Rob, the board is looking pretty cool.

i have to say that i love my blowtorch. once you find the sound you're after (which TBH didn't take me very long!) you'll love it. with the addition of the torch button on the side, you effectively have a two setting pedal, which increases it's versatility. Sits fantastically well in a band mix as well!

You must try the syb 5 with the expression pedal. it transforms the pedal totally. I have mine set up as for the "deeper underground" sound (once you add the octoplus to it)

the pedals i find that are on all of the time are the Meatbox, and Hartke VXL. the others are used to provide soundscape type effects, and are like spices that are added to the mix to create ebb and flow.

one of my main gigs is a straight DI job with IEM, and the meatbox and VXL effectively become my backline so-to-speak!

Essentially, if it doesn't have a use - it doesn't go on the board
