  1. I agree with most that's already said. In a function band I use very little effects, just a little octave or chorus depending on the song covered.
  2. I think as much as we'd all like our post EQ DI signal to go to FOH in reality it's usually the pre EQ DI that the sound engineer wants. And for good reason usually because what sounds good in our amp doesn't usually translate well to the FOH system.
  3. That sounds like a dead spot on your fretboard. It's the classic spot for it. I presume it's OK everywhere else? I've had a MXR M288 since 2012 and always been great.
  4. I've used an EQ pedal and MXR micro amp in the past to match my fretless volume to my fretted. Both did a good job and can be bought used quite cheaply. These days I don't use 2 basses on gig very often and the volume difference is actually quite small so I just roll with it. Usually the fretless is used on quieter songs anyway, and if we have PA support the sound guys sorts it anyway.
  5. Jon Sykes of Pineapple Thief uses large over ear headphones on stage. Saw them in the autumn and sure they look strange to start with but soon forget about them. You've got to do what's needed to protect your hearing.
  6. I've never seen a closeup of Jeff's Unichorus so thanks for the info. Always wondered how he set it.
  7. If I were using more then a lower profile jack would be useful but as I only use 3 pedals I find these Fender patch cables solid and reliable.
  8. Forgot to get back on this one. Yes, the power cable mentioned in the OP did work
  9. I'm sure you're both right, you get what you pay for.
  10. Sorry, I can't comment on the reverb but won't the enhance setting on the BOSS LMB3 scoop the mids? That won't help. I use flats on fretless but I agree that the 80's was more about the fretless with rounds tone. Using a bit of chorus should do it, and if you want the Guy Pratt/Pino sound then octave too
  11. I take a tuner and octave to every gig. A little chorus on a couple of songs but that's about it. I've been through fuzz, distortion etc but in the end the octave is the one that the punters hear from my experience. Unless you get to have a solo I found the drives get list in the mix.
  12. Anyone tried the Ammoon DB-1 mini pedalboard? I only use 3 pedals and it looks a low cost and tidy solution. Has anyone road tested one? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/ammoon-DB-1-Mini-Aluminum-Alloy-Guitar-Pedal-Board-with-Carrying-Bag-Tapes-X0E5/112998712351?epid=20014554715&hash=item1a4f3f841f:g:FUgAAOSwdrla-35R
  13. Anyone tried the TC Electronics Nether octave? Looks to be a Boss OC2 clone from the layout but from the reviews the one octave down knob is more muddy than the OC2 or Growl knob on the MXR BOD.
  14. Thanks dudewheresmybass. So should the adaptor I added the link for in the OP work OK with my BOSS psa230 and DOD FX62 or would you recommend another?
  15. That's good I notice the DOD says 10v on it. That won't be a problem with a 9v power supply ?
