Anybody other than me have one?

I just revamped my whole setup and I am VERY happy with the results.

Image

Signal chain:
Planet Waves Strobe Tuner (lives on my board only until I can afford a rack tuner)
EBS OctaBass (Beat out the MXR Bass Octave Deluxe in a side-by-side)
MXR Bass Envelope Filter (Beat out the EBS BassIQ in a side-by-side)
EBS Stanley Clarke Wah/Volume (LOVE the wah/volume functionality, and it has both Q-style envelope filter AND classic wah tones with a BOOST function! YAY!)
Xotic BB Bass Preamp (SVT-in-a-box)
Wren & Cuff Pickle Pie B Fuzz (Muff-style Distortion/Fuzz... hands down best bass distortion I have ever heard)
MXR Blowtorch (square-wave style synth fuzz)
Boss Bass Synth (currently dialed into a "Too Much Time On My Hands" keyboard sound)

The only thing I can see myself changing out so far, would be my Boss Bass Synth for a chorus pedal... probably an EBS... I only use the Bass Synth on one tune, and its uses are pretty limited musically.

I know that most of us bass players are "guitar-cable-amp" guys... and I was too, until I started playing more music that demanded more tonal options... but, since I started becoming a pedalboard guy, I've really jumped in with both feet, and I love it.

Post yours!

I don't have pics but my current pedalboard chain is:

Loooper ----->PW Tuner
|--------> MicroPOG --> TS9DX --> Cool Cat Chorus --> Amp

I have a large pedal collection and several "path" boxes but this is all I'm using right now. All I'm looking to add at the moment is a good bass EQ and a Tech21 VT Deluxe.

I've just gone through all my Soundpool shots and, amazingly, I never took a picture of my pedal board. However, I can say that it's:

bass --> tuner/power supply --> bass wah pedal or auto wah --> bass synthesizer --> octaver --> phaser --> bass overdrive --> "Super Feedbacker & Distortion" pedal --> compressor --> TC Electronic RH450 head with 2X12 cabinet

I've used this set-up for about 3 years and I'm getting a bit bored. I need to add more pedals for sure!

Love your "Rush COS" pedal, I take it that it's a self-build?
I have a Dan Echo and like playing around with it, ai one time I had started to collect the old Danelectro pedals but I;ve not been able to get beyond the "Basic 4". I love the original 18v Cool Cat chorus and use it on my current board (though I really want an Analogman "Deep" Bi-chorus.)

Self-build? Nah, it's an old TC Electronic P210. I found it in a store for $20. Most of the paint was gone, but it worked fine, so I painted it green and then added the Rush sticker..

I have tried to keep my board limited to what will fit on my PT Mini. I have had a bunch of different pedals on there. Here is one incarnation:

And another:

Tell me about the Hartman flanger.
I have an old Electric Mistress that I dearly love.

The Hartman is based off of the old Electric Mistress (EM).
whilst i have not used an original EM, I do have a Hartman and from what I can tell it does the EM thing very well. Another EM variation is the Toadworks Barracuda. I had one of those at the same time I got the Hartman and had a lot of trouble discerning much difference between the two. Ended up selling the Barracuda, but frankly I would have been happy keeping either one.

I actually sold the Hartman as it just didn't retain enough low end to be useful on bass in my opinion. Gorgeous sounding pedal but needed to have a clean blend to work well on bass. I kind of miss it though!

Mines boring :(

Boss TU-2 --> Aguilar Tonehammer --> BBE Optostomp --> Amp

I've tried running the compression before my tonehammer and found it was rather unpleasing to the ear, and really didn't like what it was doing with my DI signal.

:shock:

Looking forward to hearing about it. I'm in the process of putting together a few small pedalboards for my various bands.

NoXX,
interesting that you use a WIIO. I had one for a while and much preferred it on my guitars rather than on bass. That being said, i had to sell it as there was something in the harmonic content that would send my tinnitus through the roof, even at really low volumes (bummer).

So in typical fashion, I went out and bought a Reeves C50PS and even at ridiculously loud bedroom levels it doesnt bother my ears ... go figure!!!
