Me and a friend were discussing for a versatile working bass player, what would there pedal board consist of. To be used during live shows and in recording studios?
What do you guys are essential effects for a session player who covers All genres from Funk to Jazz to Metal and everything else?

I wouldn't call what we have here on the Bass Forum a mentality. It's more like the sharing part of an AA meeting.

distortion, wah, eq, one more distortion, harmony pedal, a metal distortion...you really don't need effects to be a versatile bass player, you just need to come up with insane riffs. i don't know if there is a harmony pedal for bassists, but the others should all be out there.

and a compressor

Anything else is kinda just extra.

And like the guy above him said, a DI. A perfectly clean tone gets a lot done.

Not really an effects man but the pedal that bypasses the amp's EQ so you can quickly get yours up seems pretty nice.
