Show Me Your Pedalboard: Jean-Baptiste

Today's Show Me Your Pedalboard entry is from Jean-Baptiste (or JB as he is called) all the way from France! JB is a double bass player in addition to being an electric bass player, and he definitely loves some effected bass! JB is rocking a very modest and bare-bones board. He's definitely got some cool Malekko stuff on there too, so let's dive in and take a look at what JB is rocking!

From left to right starting with the top (his signal is reversed starting at the bottom), JB's board kicks off into an MXR Bass Octave Deluxe into an Aguilar Agro dirt pedal. The MXR Bass Octave Deluxe is a great pedal, and a great alternative to the BOSS OC-2 for all your octave needs. Up next is a Malekko Bassmaster, and a master it is. Full of rich, aggressive, powerful fuzz, the real estate it takes up is more than worth it for its huge sound. You don't see too many of these days, very underrated, very cool.

Afterwards is an EHX Small Clone chorus followed by an OG first edition Earthquaker Devices Hummingbird. Awesome to see how that pedal has evolved over the years, the first edition is amazing and has that rhythmic staccato choppiness that I love about it, it was all there from the very beginning. Very cool. Up next is a Malekko Ekko 600 dark analog delay into a Neunaber Technologies WET Stereo reverb ending in a Korg Pitchblack tuner. The Korg Pitchblack tuner is a great tuner, very simple to use, and the LED is very visible in any setting. (Comes in different colors too). If I were you JB this should be the first thing in your signal chain, there is a lot of noise the further you go down a chain and you want your tuning to be as accurate as possible, tuned to the instrument and not the reverb pedal. 

JB also mentions that his pedalboard was custom made by a company called Chillbass in France. It looks very organized and easy to travel with, which is invaluable. 

Merci, JB, for sending in your board. If you haven't sent in your board yet you can email us at and it could be featured right here on Pedals And Effects!
