    I have decided to get rid of all pedals and use aTC Electronic M100, know pedal. I can sit it close enough to me and in-between songs turn the knob. I called TC Electronic and made sure it could be used on bass, they told it could be used on bass, guitar, PA anything about. it also has a Bypass which i like. so what you all think. I like simple. fullsizeoutput_a1e.jpeg

    If I wanted all those effects that's the way I'd go. Not necessarily that particular one but it's a good example. Of course if you're on stage and need to make changes on the fly, pedals might be better.

    That’s why I have a Mustang III, everything in one box.

    Mine was $6 at a local thrift shop. There are often similar effects processors on Reverb and Ebay for a lot less than the new cost.

    So you can only select the effect combinations preselected on the dial ?
    Seems kind of limited to me.
    What are the benefits of a device like this compared to a multi effects pedal?

    You can only use one effect at a time?

    The way I play at church, i would put this close to me on a little stand, and reach over and turn the knob, but most of the time when we get a list of our songs we are going to play, I can maybe leave it on one setting. So it would make it easier for me. there are a couple of multi effects in it. i have seen them pretty cheap on Reverb.com. It has a bypass for the money you could buy 2 or 3 cheaper then some pedals. Make a little rack, but one is enough for me.

    i tried out the the tc electronic m-100 on bass, the effects were good, but i had problem with volume, i ran it thru the effects loop and tried just going thru front, i was hoping it would work, my buddy is going to use in his little studio.

    Anything TC electronic that I've used had been really good.
    For bass, I can't imagine wanting more than one setting at a time in a church setting (I also play at church)
    For guitar I use a multieffects pedal.
    For bass, I would only use light reverb or chorus in certain songs.
    For you though, it would depend on what pedals you use, and if you use more than one at a time.
    Also no tuner? Are you using a clip on tuner or something?

    right now i am using a tc electronic poly tuner, boss geb-7, a keeley bassist, and a cheap danelectro corn beef reverb, the reverb stinks i don't use it hardly at all. when i used to play christian rock i use a rack, 2 alesis midi verbs and a aural exciter. i also used a midi pedal this was in the 90s. i can't afford that now living on retirement. i sold it all. i have been playing in church around 30 years, most of the of time guitar. we needed a bass player and we had a lot of guitar players, so i told them i would. i have been playing bass 11 years now in church. but i do not know much about bass effects, i would not use them at all but some of the songs we play they sound cool on. by the way i am getting rid of everything but the keeley bassist. i find i can use the tone knob on my bass as good as the boss geb-7. all i want now is my tuner my keeley bassist and a good reverb or delay I found one cheap, and its called a caline cp-68, with delay and distortion like 2 pedals. its 4 o'clock in the morning and i am rambling on so excuse me, some people on here don't care about caline pedals i guess. i have never used one. caline-cp-68-distortion-delay-opened.jpg

    Rambling about pedals at 4am seems normal to me. But I might be biased as im joining in...

    I know you have been dressing up your sound and doing some homework for a while now. I think this is a really nice option given how you will be using it. You're not going to a lot of different venues or moving around on stage. With a set list and you can have your setting notes right with you.. I think this will work just as you like.

    TC makes great stuff and in a variety of formats. Keep us updated!

    I have a Line 6 POD XT Live that does it all. I use it direct for recording when I have to be quiet. It's nice to have everything in one box sometimes.

    I use a zoom g3xn, but it's a little too complicated for me

    I use a Zoom G1 FOUR for all of my effects, but it's quite easy to just go between presets and when you want, you can just make a new preset with the combo of effects that you want.

    But, I can feel myself getting tempted by some of the DIY pedal building projects. My DIY tube amp would love a simple full-range boost pedal I think.

    Sweetwater Music sound man said it would not work well on bass, so that idea is trashed
