New member here! Just looking for some advice. I have been playing for around 6 months. Took up bass as apparently playing the drums in a terraced house annoys the neighbours and I needed to get my music fix!!!
So have been dabbling with pedals in the last few months and currently have;
Xvive bass squeezer
Behringer bass overdrive
But, being a drummer and a simple soul, I have been looking to simplify things even further.
So after a bit of research and youtube vids. This is the current short list of 4 possibles.
Fender Downtown Express
Valeton Dapper Bass
SONICAKE Bass Preamp DI Box
So indeed of advice and personal experiences of the 4 pedals above.
I play most music, rock, metal, funk, pop, Motown, soul, blues. I have a very eclectic taste.
I know I'm asking alot from one pedal. But for the sound I like. I dont need lots of heavy effects.
Compression, overdrive and an eq are my go to.
So what are your thoughts?

Zoom B1xFour... the model with the Volume / Expression pedal... Lots of love for the Zoom on Basschat.
Purchased from a fellow Basschatter back in Sept on the thread https://www.basschat.co.uk/topic/439322-sold-please-lock-zoom-b1x-four/
As you can see, i was in two minds at the time, and true to form, kids and lack of time, it has stayed in the box except for one brief hour or so airing and 'look-see' connection to the Zoom software...
