My old Digitech Bass Whammy pedal never saw too much action – it was good here and there for a special gig, but mostly it sat in my office waiting for said special gigs. And I’m feeling the urge to try out some different effects – effects I want to use on all gigs and not just weird occasions. So here’s my pedalboard version of the Herschel Walker trade – the bass whammy pedal is on the auction block, and I’m going to be trying out some new boxes to see what’s going on.
Distortion and some sort of wah or filter are definitely in the plans (EBS and Moog boxes are leading here), and I’m thinking maybe a chorus as well. Compression comes built in with the Trace Elliot amp, so I’m covered there. From there, I’m looking at maybe a preamp and new pickups for the Jazz bass. There’s a lot of options here.
I’m also open to the possibility of a Line 6 unit of some sort, although I’m not sure how much I like amp modeling going into another amp I already like the sound of.
All of this, however, is contingent on the sale of the bass whammy pedal. So take a look and make a bid if you’re interested. It’s going to find a good home somewhere.
