Putting together a bass guitar pedalboard is fun and – these days – bass players are required to make all kinds of weird and wonderful noises from effects pedals. The problem is that going through pedals degrades your tone; especially the low end. One of the bass player’s roles is to provide the bottom for the band so it’s important to guard this closely.
Using a looper is a fantastic way to take your pedals out of the signal chain when they’re not in use.
This makes live and studio playing a simpler experience because you don’t have to worry about tone.

My looper is from Brightonion, a great UK company.
