Bass > amp 100% of the time for me.  Nothing else is needed.
I rarely even use a tuner pedal and use a clip on tuner for the G string and tune with
harmonics from there.  Once it's tuned up no need to tweak the tuning all night.
And it usually comes out of the case about 99.9% in tune.

Yep. I am still a happy bunny working without effects and going straight to the amp. It forces me to experiment  more with my onboard pre amp, vtc,  pickup pan and hence getting to know the true quality of the Sadowsky bass, as opposed to setting various patches on my bass processor

Thank you for your quick response, Roger.  You right, the D'Addario string are very popular but do not begin to compare with your"world class" flatwounds.  I wish they would be available again. Sad

best wishes,
Howard Brown

We are currently using D'Addario Chromes....although I will be the first to admit they are a very different string than our flat wounds.

Roger, What strings are now being supplied on a new Jim Hall archtop?  Can you recommend a string set similar to your flatwound series (no longer available)?  Please respond, your flatwounds were the best strings I have used in the past 50 years.

Since my last post in August, the string of choice for my M5-24 has changed. While the Fat Beams I recommended do sound very good with my particular bass, the Sadowsky Blue Label SS have taken over the top spot. I also have a NYC Modern 24 (also ash/maple) that has been sporting the SS, but I'm thinking the Blue Label nickles may just be a better choice.

interesting, I had the exact opposite experience. Blues are thicker, warmer and maybe a little scooped in the high mids compared to the Blacks which are a little grinder and less middy…

In the '80, when all that electronic-multieffects crap came out, I went through a phase of making my gigs a nightmare. The last unit I bought was a ART SGX nightbass…. that thing gave me so much troubles that one night at a gig I ripped it out and went direct to the PA…. never looked back since.
For me Bass-Amp, period.

I sometimes play with a Digitech BP355.  I have no complaints, though I often play with nothing between my bass and my Ampeg SVT 4 Pro and Ampeg 8x10, besides the instrument cable and speaker cable. 

I don't have an opinion about Boss, but I've noticed no degradation of my signal with my Digitech. 

Here is a list of what I use.  I will do my best to list things in the order they are run in my chain...

Sadowsky Standard 5
Sadowsky Modern 5 JJ
Sennheiser Wireless
Korg DTR1000 rack tuner
Sansamp RBI
Alesis 3630 compressor (first channel for bass signal, other channel for when I use my morley wah to tame the signal, but retain tone)
Ampeg SVT 4 Pro
Ampeg SVT810E

Effects: on effects loop of Sansamp...also listed in order.  I sometimes use my 50/50 button to blend the effects loop while maintaining some of the original signal.

MXR Bass Envelope Filter (I run this first to maintain proper filter dynamics)
Digitech BP355
MXR Phase 100
Morley ABY box (used to hard bypass Morley Power Wah Boost)
Morley Power Wah Boost (I did some work to make it sound beefier)

I feel that all of these pieces of equipment do a great job of retaining the overall sound of the bass, without robbing tone or loss/gain of signal.
