Pedal board madness!

    Hi to all!

    I would like to enlist your help with this confused pedal board. I've posted pics and if you check them out please send me your advice. What would you use and in what order? I'm thinking the standard clean and dirty routes.

    Some ideas:
    1. two chains, possibly using the LS-2.
    2. two amp setup, utilizing the stereo of the time factor to the twin reverb and the pro jr.
    3. anything you can dream up to use most of these pedals.

    Please don't make fun of those behringer pedals. In fact if you think I could find a useful spot for any of them, then great. If not, then I don't have to include them.

    I really would like to put that fuzz factor in there somewhere. And I really like the DOD Death Metal.

    I did not get to post a close up of the EH electric mistress, small clone or Boss TU-3 tuner. Or the amp photos. I have a '70 twin reverb and a pro jr.

    Thanks for your help!

    Nice collection!

    Take them all off and only replace them one at a time as you actually need to use them.
    Starting with the tuner.

    I keep my pedal collection in a cupboard.
    My board only has three permanent pedals.

    I've got room on my board for yer leftovers. Just sayin'...

    Seriously, Jefrs has a great point. Here's another thought - depending on where in the chain your pedal is it might sound WAY different. Fuzz especially can be like that

    Certain uncertainty
    #1: You have a Twin! You don't need a lot of these with that awesome amp. In fact, if it was me I'd get tired of carrying all the pedals once I'd hauled the Twin around. Probably hate luggin the Twin too.

    My take, if it was me and I HAD to rig most of these up, I'd do something like this:


    Don't know where to put the FuzzF.

    If you were trying to go stereo, then after the superC, you run stereo out into the others that have stereo inputs/outputs.

    The stereo order would be for me would be chorus-delay-reverb.

    I'd lose the EQ because it's a twin, the EMistress because of size, and purely on a gig-worthy level I'd be Leary of the ones with plastic jacks. I'm not familiar with the Shifter. Maybe put it with the other modulation stuff?

    And ultimately experiment around, because there's some fun stuff there.

    If it was me, I'd just do TFactor and TU3 into the Twin.

    Here's the list of pedals
    My Favorites:
    1. Eventide Time Factor
    2. DOD Death Metal
    3. Boss SD-1 Super Over Drive
    4. ZVex Fuzz Factory
    5. EH Deluxe Electric Mistress
    6. EH Small Clone
    7. Boss TU-3
    I was thinking another chain could include some of these:
    1. Boss CH-1 Super Chorus
    2. Boss DD-5 Delay
    3. Behringer RV-600 Reverb Machine (I like the Space setting)
    4. Behringer US-600 Ultra Shifter / Harmonist
    And maybe the Behringer EQ700, if needed somewhere in there?

    I got the pedal bug and since the Behringer pedals were pretty inexpensive, I bought a few just for kicks, not really sure I could get something I liked out of them. As it turns out, I'm sure I could get rid of at least three of those pedals and be happy.

    That being said, I thought the Boss LS-2 Line Selector would be the answer, but with that, I would have to duplicate chains with multiple same type pedals to get what (I think?) I'm looking for. Now I'm thinking I should be looking for the most budget friendly pedal switcher. It looks like, with a switcher, I wouldn't need two chorus, two delay, or two reverb pedals. I saw the Carl Martin Octa-Switch 2. It's spendy but not as bad as some of the rack systems I've seen previously. Those just were out of my league.

    I don't gig, I'm just trying to enjoy what little free time I have at home.

    Please let me know if you guys have any switcher ideas or experience. Also let me know if you have any love or hate thoughts on any of these pedals!

    Thanks again!
