YT257 – How To Build A Killer Bass Guitar Pedal Board

Hey, James here!

Today's lesson is inspired by our head coach at eBassGuitar, Paul Geary. Paul and I collaborated months ago to record the Slap Bass Course 101 for eBassGuitar's Bass Lab Plus. One thing I was super impressed with is Paul's pedal board which was just a part of his setup.  He plugged it in, and everything was ready to go. That really inspired me to make my personal pedal board which I have been doing for the past couple of months and I want to show how it has turned out!

As a professional gigging bass player here in the UK, one of the things that has happened in the past 18 months, is all of the gigs I do are now on in-ear monitors as opposed to the standard back line. Sometimes, we'll be using in-ear monitors with an amp too so I needed a slightly different combination of equipment. And a lot of that focused on what's on my pedal board.

Before, I had a pedal board that was a bit scrappy. Surprise, I didn't really enjoy using it! It didn't have a proper power supply and so the battery was running out left and right! So I have put together something that's really streamlined and plug-and-play. In this video, I'm going to take you to the thought processes and the equipment that I used to give me all the options I now need as a gigging bass player.

What's on your pedal board? Share in the comments!

I'll see you in the next week!
