    For open-stage-nights, spontanious jams etc.Hotone Soulpress for wah, Harley Benton Golden Face, Harley Benton Clean Glass, Hotone Sky Trem, Danelectro PB&J. Sometimes combined with a Tech21 The Blonde if I have to go direct to mixing desk.

    My Mini Breakfast Tray Board seems to be over sized compared to the majority of boards on this thread. Dunno if I can whittle it down anymore than this.

    This is my minimalist grab-and-go board presently. I can cover a lot of ground with it: Blues, Post-Punk, Sabbath-type sludgy Metal.
    Most of my tones come from my guitar/amp combo (hot rod parts Esquire and a Bassbreaker 15) by twiddling the guitar knobs and switch.
    The Bluesbreaker pedal gives a little more juice when needed and delay is my desert island pedal.
    I do want to switch out the Lovepedal delay for a Boss DD3. I’ve got the DD7 on my big board and I want more parity/consistency between the two. Also, the Lovepedal’s construction dictates the signal chain; it isn’t my preference. I prefer the delay last. The delay is in the center because of the power supply jack location; I can’t close the lid with the plug sticking out the side IMG_2923.JPG

    Current rehearsal setup is a Keeley Delay Workstation (verb and delay) and a Soul Food for a solo boost with a little hair. Going back and forth on whether to add a compressor. Most songs I just have the reverb.

    What about some longer patch cables to change signal order and keep the physical order?

    Well, that’d work for pedal order/power jack issue, but the space between pedals is tight. If the delay is last in order but in the center of the board I have to pull it partially out in order to plug in the cable to the amp. Even a right-angle jack would require that. It’s a lot of effort for a pedal I think is only OK and only bought because it was on sale at GC.
    Thanks for the suggestion though and the spirit it was offered in!

    I did an image search on "how small is yours" to check out some pedal boards.

    Switch the tuner and the Bluesbreaker. Lid closing problem solved.

    Yeah, I know it's blasphemy on this Forum to not have your tuner first in the chain, but I've never had a tuning problem with the tuner later in the chain. At least try it and see how you like it. FWIW.

    Thanks! I used it with my Blues Jr. and Tele for several hours Sunday. Great little combination! I'm am thinking of taking the compressor off though and moving the Rat to the 1st position in order to put my Carbon Copy on board for those times I want a little slapback. It never ends. :lol:

    I feel like I’m chasing my tail. I almost sold my compressor but tried it one more time (I looked up how to use it better) and now I love it, so back on board. Phase 90’s days are limited...I think

    The Mooer Yellow Comp is so tiny I'll still be able to stash it in the guitar case and have it along if I feel the need to use it. My minimalist board is growing apparently. :lol:
