bass pedalboards

Anyone running a bass pedal board in worship? Obviously nothing to flashy, but maybe tone shaping tools? Preamps, EQ, compressors, delay (maybe)?

The guy I play with runs a SansAmp bass driver. Other than that most of the bass players I run into are plug and play types

I've been using my guitar board as a bass board. I've got a few effects that work great for both with a little knob turn here or there.

I started playing bass in a new band recently. On my board is an earthquaker devices crimson drive, zvex woolly mammoth clone, boss FL 3, and a zoom multistomp. Been thinking of adding a compressor, but I don't know much about them yet.

I agree, but I'm more or less trying to help out the sound guys vs coloring my sound. They don't do anything fancy for the bass. The lows and low-mids don't talk well with the room. There's a build up in the room when the bass player goes into the lower registers. Almost like you'd blow over the stop of an empty bottle. Just trying to get some consistency on my end and maybe that will help the sound guys deal with less erratic levels.

Sounds like you like those dirty/nasty tones. What type of music is that band?
I just ordered an MXR M87 compressor. I'll let you know how it jams when I get it.

Compression, EQ, things like that, Are you running Direct to the board or through your amp on stage?

Both. I'm plugging into a DI that splits the signal. I'm guessing one is buffered back to the board and the other is a pass-thru to the amp on stage. Nothing from the amp is going through the house speakers. It's only for reference.

I think the guy who put it together is aiming at something like Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, but it's a probably going to be a cover band for a weird retro/hipster bar.

I really dig the ehx bass soul food. The soul food for guitar is more of a klone, but the bass version goes for a nice ampeg growl, which is great for some settings. You can also blend in the dry signal. Other than that a good preamp is nice (I like the MXR M81) and MAYBE a chorus for those soaking worship pads. But I usually run my bass extra clean. Mostly straight into the board.
