Time to go gigging! New Bass Rig!

I know this is kind of a gear ***** thing to do, but I always enjoy looking at other people's rigs and set-ups so I thought I'd post mine. Still trying to figure out what I need on the pedalboard, so it looks kinda funny, anyway here it is, hope it helps someone who is shopping around.

Orange Terror Bass 500
Orange 4x10 Cab
Fender Pbass (Mexican Made, but put some Vinatge '62's in and it screams!)
Epiphone Thunderbird IV(Why not? It looks cool. It's also not dirty and dusty like it looks, for some reason the flash made it look terrible.)
Pedaltrain JR w/ hardcase
Voodoolab Power Pedal2
Boss Chromatic Tuner
MXR Bass Compressor
EHX Big Muff
Digitech Bass MultiChorus

This is my current setup, just played and outdoor show at a fair in front of about 2500 people, and this thing breezed thru that. We are mostly just a party band that plays anything from the Eagles to Alice in Chains. Really only use the tuner and compressor at the moment, but I'm not very schooled up on effects, so I'm trying to figure out what I need.
Anyway hopefully someone enjoys looking at this and maybe it can help someone that is looking at putting together a rig. I am in love with this setup. Already have a 1x15 on the way.

Looks cool man. If you wanna try effects I've heard that boss makes a good multi effects pedal for bass.

Looks great, real clean!

Do you plan on adding in a 15" cab by any chance?

As far as effects units go, I reckon you might have some fun with the EHX Bass Synth. If you're looking for a comprehensive multi-fx unit, have a look at a TC-Electronic G-Major, or perhaps a second hand Line-6 Bass Pod Pro unit.

Thanks guys. I actually do have a 15 on the way, should be here middle of next week. I know a bass player really doesn't need any effects, but thos little boxes are just so freaking addicting, lol. The synth was actually something I had been eyeing for a while now, probably going to go ahead and pick one up and play around with it.

Bass players are in no less need of effects than guitarists. There's a time and a place for everything, and sometimes a guitar is better without. Bass can be great with or without too.
