    I've updated my minimalist pedal board! Swapped my Rat for a Tumnus!

    Tuner - Wampler Tumnus - Analogman True Vintage mod with True Bypass TS808 - Flashback Delay - Boss Reverb - Ditto Looper.

    Happy :p

    I had a bit of a rejig after getting a used MXR Custom Shop Phase 90 '74 reissue for a good price off eBay.

    Fuzz Face Mini > SP Compressor > Archer > Phase 90 > Echorec > DLS > Moollon Tremolo > HoF

    George L's make such a difference too... I use Mogami's at the moment... awesome patches but too bulky, I've used MXR's pans but their length do not suit my pedalboard layout...

    I know some people who have problems with George L's, but I love them and allow me to wire up the board as neatly as possible.

    It's not quite as neat as I'd like yet, though - the SP Compressor needs to be a bit higher and the Archer a little lower so as to not offend my OCD.

    Now, if only all manufacturers would put the jacks in the same place, I could be even neater...

    Do you use a daisy chain or have a designated/isolated power supply?

    Well, it's been five months and one day since I last changed my main board, so here's the latest revision, which is largely a return to past versions.

    [​IMG]

    I recently had several realizations about my effects:
    • The best compressor for me is no compressor at all. I've tried a bunch and they never improve my sound or enjoyment of playing. So, the Mooer Yellow Comp is gone.
    • Though I was thinking it's good to have a variety of dirt sounds, I always preferred my BB Preamp to whatever else was on the board, most recently a DIY Rat clone. On my board, I really only need the BB. So the Rat goes to join the DS-1, SD-1, Triangle Muff, Fuzzrite, and SFT clones in the spare pedals drawer.
    • I really don't like mucking around with multieffects. The Zoom MS-50G was saving me some space, doing the job of tuner, slapback delay, and tremolo, but its switches and knobs and LCD display were just too fiddly for a live board. What's more, its single stomp switch didn't really do its vast processing power justice.
    • I really love Boss pedals; the more Boss, the better.
    The only new pedal is the EHX Canyon, which replaces the Zoom. I was going to go with a Carbon Copy, but then I realized in the same footprint I could get so much more. I'll mostly use the Canyon for slap back, but if I ever need an octave delay or shimmer or even reverb (I'm not a reverb kinda guy), they're in there.

    With the Rat and Mooer Yellow Comp gone, I brought back the the TR-2 and the PitchBlack. Boss count increased by 1. Discrete pedals are easier to deal with than fiddling with the MultiStomp. End result: this board has all the really "me" stuff and nothing else.

    For non-"me" stuff, I have a Boss GT-1 that will remain separate from this board. It has many of the same sounds as the Zoom, but its real-time control is much more effective.

    Went to a jam the other night. Came home and tweaked my light board set up. Loving the changes! Two stages of dirt and something swirly :)

    Alas, just a daisy chain. I know I should get a proper power supply, but I haven't had an issues with the daisy chain so far.

    I had a power supply. It was good - until it broke down during a gig, which left me with just the amp and a delay, because I had only one spare battery with me (it was nice to have a pure 60s tone, but not for all songs).
    After that I changed and now have two wallwarts with a daisy chain each to feed my pedals, a thrid one for my wireless and a spare supply in the "odds&sods-emergency"-flightcase and feel a lot safer for gigs.
    Of course I bought quality models from Korg, Boss, as well as quality cables; I have the impressions it is altogether less noisy than before... So it's absolutely no need for me to get another power-brick.

    No obvious changes except that I put my Carbon Copy before the drive pedals.
    Signal chain as of now
    USA Tele Deluxe --> TU-3 --> Micro POG --> CC --> TS7 --> Green Rhino --> RAT --> VPJR --> El Capistan --> DD7 --> Stereo Wet --> Jamman --> SF Twin

    Still looking for something to fill in for the Rhino. I'd like a Mayflower or something in the ballpark. I never played a Timmy before so I guess I have to try one, right?

    I put together a small board to use with my looper. The end goal being to practice using this setup and go out and get some solo gigs. Then save up for an RV-300.:)

    Just some minor adjustments after a couple of gigs. New channel switch (from Laney), less bulky than the Boss FS-5L, therefore more space between each pedal - less occasional stepping on the wrong knob....it seems like I've reached a satisfactory board, because for the last 6 months I've not been missing anything (please don't throw me out of this thread)!

    Oh, the signal: guitar into AKG WMS40 wireless via patchbay into T-Rex Gull Wah - TC Dark Matter into Amp input. From effects send via patchbay inot Rocktron Hush, then T-Rex Tonebug Booster, into Red Panda Raster, then T-Rex Reptile (old version), Strymon Flint back to effects return. Amp is a Hughes & Kettner Edition Tube 25th Anniversary.

    @wulfenganck How do you like the Strymon Flint? I've been gassing for one for a while now.

    I love it - it's one of my favourite pedals. Get it now!

    A couple minor changes and it's as close to perfection as it's ever been. (Don't quote me on that in six months when I change it again.) After playing through Johnny Marr's live version of "How Soon Is Now" I decided the TR-2 and the CE-2 needed to be next to each other, so I can do the tremolo<=>chorus switching with a single stomp. I also tweaked the level trim pot in the TR-2 so that the tremolo and dry volumes match better. The signal path is PitchBlack=>BB Preamp=>Phase 95=>CE-2=>BF-2=>DD-3=>Canyon=>TR-2.

    Of course, pedalboard modifications require close supervision from the quality control inspector. I don't know how I would ever get it working properly without Nigel's help.

    Nigel's very cute! My cat does the same thing but when I'm playing!
