So, I'm hopefully joining a funk band and I was just wondering if there are any funk bass specific pedals I should get? I was thinking about an envelope filter or a wah but what do you guys think? Thanks

Those are all very good pedals for funk, I would also check out a phaser pedal.
Gear:
EBMM Bongo HS 4
EBMM Sting Ray 5
Eden D410T
Tech 21 Sansamp RBI
Tech 21 Sansamp RPM
Art 341 Dual Channel EQ
QSC GX5 Power Amp

Fuzz and filters are where it's at for funk. However, it is still all in your playing style. Effects won't make it funky. They can just compliment already funky people.

Depends on what kinda funk your playing. Any george clinton your going to need a heavy fuzz or a synth. If your playing some meters, i wouldnt use any pedals.
'85 Fender Reissue '75 Jazz Bass ---> Ashdown MAG300h
Schecter C/SH-1 ---> Fender Hot Rod Deluxe

what those guys said.

Also maybe an EQ pedal to switch to a better slapping tone in a timely fashion.

fuzz+ EQ+ auto wah are what I'd stick with.

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.

Based on Flea's use of the Q-tron and the DOD fx-25b I would much rather the DOD, which I have (ftw)

I challenge anyone to find a better sound than this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rGwiwX71kFo

Personally, I prefer a really a watery envelope filter tone, so that's not hard for me.
