Hmmm. I like pedals, up until now for mostly mucking about with in the house, with my guitar and pianet as well as bass.
I always have a muting tuner on stage though, like a comfort blanket.
Recently though, I’ve been thinking a fairly light touch compressor would help on stage. Also something I could DI to front of house so the sound guy doesn’t trash “my” sound. I’ve also been reading the HPF thread and thinking that would definitely be a good idea to get the best out of my rig. There are some songs I play that require a boost (Sweet Child Of Mine beginning bit, Do You Love Me vocal “dohs” played as a short bass solo, etc).
Seems a pedal board might be a bit costly with dedicated units, but these B3n’s seem to cover my needs (I think).
Maybe I should hold out for one of those Helix Stomps though. I know joe public wouldn’t notice the difference between the two, but if there is one, I would. Hmmm indeed.
All musings great fully mulled.
