Today’s Show Me Your Pedalboard entry comes from multi-instrumentalist Jim! Jim plays both bass and guitar often leaning on the baritone/lower end of the sonic spectrum. For that reason Jim wanted a pedalboard to accommodate both guitar and bass! Let’s take a look at what Jim is rocking:
Jim is running things through a Morley A/B/C switch/line selector, so there’s a lot of sending and receiving. Here’s Jim’s chain in rapid fire:
Digitech Bass Whammy: Nice! Definitely an amazing pedal. Check out the PedalsAndEffects review here. Also check out our interview with Tom Cram head honcho of Digitech to get a good idea of what’s to come!

BOSS DS-1 with Tonefactor “Blacklight mod”: By itself a DS-1 is pretty vanilla (which isn’t a bad thing!), it is one of the most polarizing pedals out there. Elitists say its horrible, others say its a great way to get into distortion pedals, and others like it just the way it is! Modding the DS-1 could pull some really great results from the pedal. Keep in mind, the amount of money you might spend on modding the pedal could be used to find a distortion pedal that already does exactly what you want. Give Xotic, or Earthquaker Devices a try!

Electro-Harmonix Big Muff: Classic!
Ibanez BE10 Graphic Bass EQ: You know, I don’t think they make these anymore.

BOSS TU-2 Tuner: I’d move it up if possible, but I know you got stuff going in and out of the line switcher.
Line 6 DL4: Classic.
