Here’s my basics analog board. One of my favorites is the Analog Man TS9. Is there anything missing?
Is that a 5e3 clone?
The evolution of a board...
Put together a small “essentials” board. Still trying to figure out the best way to deal with the power supply...
Great idea! I can definitely squeeze one in.
Yep, Mission Amps flavor. Super kit and love the tone.
Can you upload a higher resolution photo?
Trying to find a way to get the power cable running side to side and still have the four pedals.
I don't think so, this is a photo composite of my boards dating back to my first upload here 5 years ago and my phone isn't very good lol but I remember each pedal from all the photos and have maybe 2/3 of them still
I'd put the tuner on top of the power supply.
Your octafuzz doesn't react weird with pedals in front? I find the tone and feel on mine to change pretty heavily if it's not first in line to see the guitar cable/pickups
It has been weird with certain pedals in front. The BD-2 doesn’t seem to be one of them. I prefer the fuzz into the OD but I isn’t a deal breaker. I just want a good ergonomic layout and the delay has to be last.
Also, the octave switch is broken. It’s ok though. I never used the it that way.
I’m going to try this tonight. It may too tall to fit in the bag though.
I think I found the solution. May even be able to add a mini pedal one day
You could always change the tuner for a Polytune mini or even the pitchblack mini.
Another option was powering everything with a 1Spot and a daisy chain.
Wow, very interesting evolution. I can see it too, which is fun. All of that in just five years? Please extrapolate a bit.
Totally. In the past couple years I've started gigging regularly so my changes directly parallel that. My earlier gigging years I just used a distortion (usually the Emma reezafratzitz), a carbon copy, boss dd6 and tuner. I didn't have a board for years and when I amassed a collection for my first board, the top one, I figured I ought to put everything I have and cover all standard sounds...that was fun for home playing. The second board I tried to make a "do all" board, with every sound I thought I'd need, that survived one gig lol. I reduced the board after that to essentials (for my sound), on the third picture, the Rat would rotate for any drive that I was feeling and the add on effects like the "frequency analyzer" or "green ringer" were mostly just fun. When I began gigging regularly and subbing for a friend on wedding gigs I realized less is more and tried to get all essentials on a mini board - od/distortion/delay and a wah in the gig bag (I was playing a Princeton then). That little board had me for a bit and I went through a few versions of the same idea, selling and swapping drives etc when I realized I shouldn't be a slave to the concept of a small board for the sake of it. I purchased the next size pedaltrain and experimented and after much deliberation and looking at everything in front of me, I chose my favorites and put together the last board shown. It's perfect for me (at the moment). The King Of Tone is new but my favorite (I could do a gig with that and my maxon ad999), the Versa Vibe is the modulation I dig most, Pettyjohn Chime is great for sessions and gigs since it has an option to slice off bass and compress which I find useful, the blackbird is an all tube preamp that allows me to go direct (which I need to occasionally) plus it's a tube buffer, amazing drive and I can run it into my torpedo cab as well, the strymon cap and flint just work great. So all n all, it's a simple rig that's portable but still has a lot of options. Everything there made it through the gig test for me!
That's the reverse of what I was going to suggest:
Power supply all the way to the right, and the tuner on its side to accept the input, hanging the power chord off the right bank. Looks good
