Hey, sorry to bother you with questions, but can you recommend any changes to my rig? I play post-rock, hardcore, and shoegaze, mostly. My rig so far is Squier Bass VI>Joyo octave fuzz>boss BD-2>Rocktron Hush>Morley Mini Volume>MIJ Boss BF-2>TC electronic HOF>empress tremolo>flashback x4>Hotone Wally looper. I have a DOD Ice Box on the way. I'm thinking about getting a Devi Ever Soda Meiser. Do you have any recommendations regarding the order of my board? Should I get anything else?

I might put reverb after the flashback so the delays are getting reverberated. But I might also put it after the looper to sort of blend the loop cycle a little. Make it less noticeable when the loop starts over again. Other than that I think everything is where I might play with it. I like tremolo before other modulation and time based effects, but that pedal can realistically go wherever you want it for the most part. 

The Ice Box is a solid chorus. Kinda miss having mine around because I don’t use chorus much and that thing worked well. 

As far as anything else, it’s all about sounds you want to achieve. So find stuff that does that. You have a lot of bases covered though. The Soda Meiser is a pretty gnarly fuzz that would sound pretty nasty with the Bass VI so that would be a cool addition. 

There are no real rules to gear, just do what makes the sounds you want. 
Cool rig though. 

On an end note, I wouldn’t have made this blog if I didn’t want to be bothered. haha. Though I might make this skype account so I can have more helpful dialogue with people that want help.
