    Throwing my guitar into a bass amp with octave down pedal and a guitar amp. Sometimes the bass amp situation is great and can get very good subby bass sound but sometimes it is terrible so I figure my best bet is to get some sort of EQ pedal that I can cut the highs and boost the lows / possibly volume boost too or some sort of warming boost pedal with the same kind of EQ possibilities. Any thoughts on what to get?

    Empress ParaEQ (has a boost function as well).

    The MXR 10 band is a workhorse for sure, but lately I have been using the Source Audio programmable eq. I like being able to store curves and recall them.

    I'd suggest this if you can find one at a good price. Being able to sweep those freq bands around is great. You probably need a cut down at 25-40hz range and slight boost around 160. If you feel bottom end is getting blown out to often you should consider a bass limiter like Keeley bass comp/limiter. There's a reason why HPF's and limiters are essential tools for a lot of bassists

    I've also used this for tone shaping the way you describe on my guitar board, AND as a boost on my bass board. The treble control rolls off the high frequency. And the low control can really fatten up the signal. ImageUploadedByTDPRI1456755266.240606.jpg

    I got one of these a few weeks ago. I don't know how I ever lived without it. Electric, bass, acoustic, it does wonders with everything.
