So, tired of lining the floor with test produce, pulling it out, piece by piece, assembling, testing, playing, practicing, disassembling, and putting away piece by piece every day. My current living arrangement does not allow for me to just leave it out.
So, I just got this;
So this is the pedal board, it is 14 by 12 inch. Not sure if it will be big enuf, I have a larger one ordered as well, but won’t ship til Monday. So if I can be happy with this, will cancel the larger one (which really is not that much larger, but might make all the difference in the world. This was only $40, so if it works, great!
I got these yesterday and today. (And last week)
The Behringer BDI-21 new from GC ($33)
Boss TU-2 Used on Let Go ($30)
Zoom U-22 Used on BassBuzz ($35)
Ammon Retro Fuzz New on Amazon ($22.99)
Dinner mini Harmonic Square -amazon($24.99)
(Both pedals have gone up since I ordered them. I would not have ordered at current price.)
I heard the two pedals tested on bass on YT, and they sounded pretty good. The nexpensive price allowed for me to test them out. If no good, back they go. I have already returned 3 pedals I tested last week. I bought all this staff, pedal boards in lauded, with credit from stuff returned.
These I have had for some time.
Zoom B1 Four from Amazon new ($79.99)
Behringer BLE 400 NEW/pawn shop ($15)
Love the zoom for practice amp, drum loops / metronome, and one or four presets. I love playing with it in stomp box mode, and playing with certain effects, chain order, sounds modeled off of many stomp boxes, and amps / cabs. And I get “OK” results when building chains. But I get better sound “in my opinion only” when chaining pedals (with the Zoom inline for some single effects turned on, in different places un the chain, etc…
But it’s a great little, highly universal unit and I love it and learn from it, and often practiced with I’d until I got my Orange Crush Amp, which is just more convenient to plug headphones into.
It is higher off the ground. If I move my head too far it doesn’t yank the pedal chain, or the zoom unit off the table if I am on,y pkugged into it, it just feels a little better to be connected to,
The Behringer BLE (Bass Limiter / Enhancer) is a great pedal. It is a Limiter compression pedal, not a compression / sustainer pedal, of which Behringer makes as well, but I have not tried it.
Both pedals are direct copies of the Boss pedals, LMB and CS pedals. The Boss is rated as the 2nd best Bass Compression pedal on the website @howard showed me, dedicated to compression pedals for Bass. The Behringer is listed as the low cost alternative to the Boss pedal.
I really love the pedal from the first time I used it. Way before I saw that list, and before I even was on BassBuzz. For the $15 spent, it was gold. For the $29 they are (when available) they are still a great buy IMHO.
Not sure where I am going with this build yet, not sure I will keep the Ammon or Donner pedal,
But gonna have some fun building.
Oh yeah, I have a power supply as well.
The BDI-21 will be on the board, not sure if the Zoom U-22 will be or not, may be on the side.
The B1 Four will hang around where it fits for now, but prob won’t be a permenant member on board.
More to come, gotta run for now.
