A big part of my fretless bass sound is a great sounding vibrato pedal, because it gives the bass a human voice sound that is very musical. One of the pedals that has a regular spot on my touring pedalboard is the Behringer Ultra Vibrato UV300. This vibrato pedal can keep up with any other vibrato pedals out there but is one third of the price.
Putting vibrato on harmonics, like I do on Big Sir’s “Regions,” helps fill out the sound of bass. Chords also get that same type of lush content that really helps give a band a big sound. If you check out any of my pedalboards, you’ll almost always see a vibrato pedal on there.
Behringer offers a lot of pedals, and all of the ones I’ve tried (like the Reverb Machine RV600 and Vintage Time Machine VM1) are awesome and parallel ones that cost a lot more. The Reverb Machine RV600 has deep reverb and I like to use it on super spacey or dubbed out bass parts. If you want to get your pedalboard beefed up but have a limited budget, consider Behringer as your go-to pedal company.
