    Not wired up yet.

    Tuner-compressor- blues driver chorus- analog delay - digital delay - phaser - analog delay - digital delay vibrato - reverb - volume pedal.

    I might fiddle with the order. Lots of under board Criss cross.

    suggestions? Critiques? Praise?

    As always thanks in advance.

    Those pedals are huge!

    Or your feet are tiny.

    No other explanation fits for the scale of the image.

    What is that boss fv 50 ? a power supply of some sort ?
    I would love to hear how that sounds. I play some sort of country punk, but got rid of the boss compressor, because engaged or not engaged, i couldn't hear the difference. Just a cheap delay to get a slapback, clean peavey bandit with a bit of reverb sound.

    I wouldn't know how to use all of those. You are going to have fun setting that up at the next soundcheck. Your friends will love it too ! ;)

    fv 50 is a volume pedal. Used for swells.

    most of them are set and forget. The compressor and the analog delay and the reverb are always on pedals. The rest are flavours. So the chorus and the phaser can be set (maybe the unity has to be adjusted on the chorus.) the longer delay is pretty much set and forget.

    Is the boss pedal volume any good ? I might get a volume pedal if i get back into lap steel, which i should have done 5 or 6 years ago..

    Guessing it runs from bottom right to top left? If so, order is strange?

    For swells, I'd put the delay/modulation after the volume pedal..gets you those beautiful ethereal sounds

    No up down left right. The order it’s being wired in is in the text.

    Looks good to me, add a Micro Amp or something to goose the Blues Driver and it could be a “pretty much any style board.”

    Also: Wasn’t aware there was that much modulation use in country.

    This served me well over the years. Always wanted to add a volume pedal but never got around to it. This went into a DRRI or Victoria Victorilux depending on the venue.

    I always thought the volume pedal went first or after the tuner. I guess it really doesn’t matter. 300E5E07-6C27-474B-A616-879B866BB42D.jpeg

    I would use that rig for any genre of music, save metal, which I don't do anyway. However, my personal preference is to place delay(s) at the end of the chain just before the volume pedal. My general practice is filters & other tone modifiers first, then modulation & other time-based effects. I run my modulators in a post-preamp loop with the filters placed before the preamp & find that anything downstream of the delay is forced to work with the intentionally intermittent/disrupted signals when the delay is active. IDK, maybe that is the result you are looking for, and everyone's art is different than the next guy (a good thing), but not my ideal aural cocktail.

    Nice setup. I don’t see a tremolo pedal. Are you using amp tremolo? That’s what I’m doing lately.

    the brown moore pedal is tremolo, vibrato or chorus. I think I’ll be setting it to tremolo. But I’ve had it on vibrato. But...

    The pedals are on a piano bench, end table, or night stand. Not the floor.
