While listening to some samples of bass chorus on line, I came across some clips of people using reverb and delay. Nothing I heard seemed particularly relevant to my purposes, but I liked some of the sounds and am curious about how they are employed by those who use them in performance.

Depends on what you want out of the instrument and what role it has to fill.

Easy way to get more sound out of limited people, or make a bigger soundscape, etc.

I use all three, and did when I still gigged live and did bass for some shows.

The link takes you to a downloadable link of a bass snippet of mine using a Strymon Flint with one of my Rickenbackers.

Thanks, Jeff. I enjoyed hearing that. Which of the pedal's settings did you use?

A few years back, I played in some original bands with tracks that featured bass intros at or above the 12th fret on the upper strings, and I loved using delay for those on stage. In my current original band, I've only composed one intro part like that, which would be nice with delay, but I'm not dealing with a pedal board for just one track.

I was in a cover band for awhile last year, and would have used chorus for some tracks (like The Cure's "Just Like Heaven"), but the band dissolved before we played those tracks live.

Reverb is used on bass in old school reggae very often (think Scratch Perry). I toy with both reverb and delay at times.

I tend to use a combination of chorus, reverb and delay only with fretless, mostly for high register melodic stuff. Though I have all three of those effects on my pedalboard I rarely use them together. I might kick in the chorus pedal (DOD Deep Freeze, which is great) only occasionally to thicken certain parts, but I almost never leave it on throughout a song unless it's an 80's throwback. I'll use a taste of reverb for solos sometimes, and if I use delay it's mostly on a long reverse setting for ambient loop-type stuff.

Thanks, Rick! :^)

The Flint allows for swapping the tremolo and reverb around (which comes first in the chain) For that recording I had the pedal set up so that the reverb trails would be Tremolized® which gives to sound a bot of a delayed effect depending on picking patterns. '63 tube tremolo setting and '80s reverb with a fairly long decay setting.

I find the Color control to be very useful, it is more than simply a tone control.
