Best pedal I've ever used with bass is a compressor.  Super helpful when recording.
There are several variations to try.  ( optical, OTA, VCA, ... )

I agree and also feel that a slight boost can do wonders for your signal. A comp usually adds just the right amount of boost as well.

All the way, I I wouldn’t play without one.

Pedal building is like the opposite of sex.  All the fun stuff happens before you get in the box.

Been running a 4:1 compressor and a bloviator on my bass. It's a great one two punch. Thinking of adding a blend/fx loop pedal to put some other pedals into while retaining a good fundamental bass tone underneath. At least that's the plan after I finish up everything else I'm working on.
