Got some Royal Blood style fake guitar ready for this evening's shenanigans! Tender Octaver into the American Sound nails the RB tone, then the doubler recreates the fat sound they get from using multiple amps. Board is split 50/50 for 'guitar' and bass, with the guitar sound going to a mixer in stereo. Two compressors on board for different basses, although I may eventually restrict myself to one. Just using the Beta as a dark & dirty boost which works well into the bright sounding Darkglass amp. That might get replaced with the Green Russian though...

Did I just spot that your beloved Aggie Octamizer has been replaced by your COG T16?!! They really are a great little octaver aren't they?

Haha, well.....never say never......but I'd genuinely struggle to improve on any of this I think!
So unless I change the format/layout etc, I think this is as good as it gets for this size of board.
Don't get me wrong, I have other boards for different things that get changed a lot.....but this has been basically constant for at least a year, the only recent change was to put the Sub'n'Up on in place of the Mooer Tender Octaver.

Hi. Question about your fx order.... do you ever run your bef filter into your oc2 octaver?
Eat, sleep, bass, repeat.

I typically have no use to with this band, but I have done. How come?

Nice selection. Always wondered how the Mel9 fares on bass...

Here's mine. Scarily this has come together from scratch over the past 6 months, before which I had no pedal board and used a Boss MS-60B mainly just as a tuner! BC is such a slippery slope!

Blame and thanks in equal measure to Cuzzie, Dannybuoy and Cameron for lots of useful and expert insight whilst egging me on to explore new effects; I never knew filters could be so much fun(k) :) And also to Osiris for valiantly trying to save me cash by telling me to stick to my Zoom B3n. Now that I have run out of space on my board, I will definitely maybe start to listen...

Usually, for playing ease I first raise the signal one octave with the whammy. With a 24 fret neck however you can get away without that.

Getting the Mel9 to sound good takes practice, it only has three volume levels on the output of notes it plays. Tracking is awesome.

I had the B9 and C9, kept the B9. Lent it to a friend who keeps forgetting to bring it out when I see him! Must get it back!

How's your filter quest going Al? I've decided to keep the MXR btw, thanks for not buying it off me!

That's interesting. I demoed the Mel 9 - for the cello and choir specifically - but couldn't get anything useful out of it. Pairing with an octaver might be a good solution (although the Sub N Up now gives me a lot of what I want on it's own). I wasn't aware of the 3 volume levels detail though. It did seem brutally monophonic on bass and I guess the stepped volume probably emphasised this. It was as if it really grabbbed the loudest note and just wouldn't let go until something louder came along.

Here are mine after 3 and a half years of amassing, trialling, side- and up-grading. I have a third board planned for my Vox Dealylab and another Red Panda and an Avalanche Run I fancy, but am not in a rush... The black one is the noisy one, the wooden is the ambient weirdness.

Latest revision. New PSU after the MXR 18v wall-wart I used for the Pork Loin started emitting sparks after only 3 gigs. Big improvement in noise floor and plenty of options for powering more pedals later. All the digital ones are on separate lines. The Bass Soul Food has gone and I may sell it - the mid push is too much for my taste although it works well on guitar. Maybe a Rat style distortion (MXR? Fuzzrocious?).

This is my all-in one, that can also be an extended pedalboard heart

Rothwell love squeeze
phase 45
Mutron III
these 3 before or after the dirt, with a loop for another mod
comp is independently on/off, the rest is activated by the mod switch

Preamp stage : runoffgroove Ginger (b15) or Orange emulation

Dirt: idiotbox or mountainking megalith or shin ei companion, blendable, or another effect in a loop (blendable too)

then "more" stage= boost of the megalith + ews mid control

Made by a friend on french forum Onlybass
Great beast, lots of fun!

edit it's a DI too
sorry for the bad pic.

Thanks! Made by a super nice & smart guy. By now he's 100% into mastering but hopefully he'l make some cool boxes again.
