Here's my pedal board. DM-3, 81-82' TS9, TU2, Modded Dynacomp w/attack control and TELE knobs!
howz 4 of 'em ?
i only use the multis for late night recording when even a Champ is too loud, the homebrew board is what i use to gig with.....
Here's a recent version. The silver box on the top left is a BYOC 808 clone, the TR-2 is a Keeley mod, running the Silver LTD at 18 volts and the Small Fry at 12 volts.
I think we've done this before, but I've upgraded mine so it's time to repost anyway. I use two. First, the big board (known as Fat Man):
And the small one (Little Boy):
Go here for detailed descriptions of both. Thanks for looking!
Heres an old pic
I've since taken off the footswitch due to my dislike of the HRDx overdrive channel, in its place is my Behringer TO800 which sounds great
Looper: 2 loop with reverse mode & tuner mute:
loop 1: >Budda Wah >> AB effect switcher with 2 RAT
loop 2: >TS-808 >> boss PN-2 >> boss BF-2 >> boss DD-6
Just very simple. But notice the TS-9 is before the compressor (via George L). Heresy! But I like it this way (for now). I allows me to use the level on the CS-2 as a master volume before going through the RV-2 (set on Gate!) and from there to the (true bypass) PW tuner. Then out the tuner to the EB volume pedal, and then to the amp. The silver box contains a nine-volt regulator smoothed with 10 uF and 100 uF caps. It's fed by a 12 volt, 1200 mA wall wart (not in picture). Everything's velcro-mounted on a piece of shelving with rubber feet and a boat cleat for handling convenience, it fits in a lap computer-style shoulder bag. The RV-2 and CS-2 stay on for almost everything I play, whether I'm practicing with the stereo or playing with MidLife Crisis.
Hey Eric, where did you get this pedalboard?
have some great looking pedal boards! I've since changed my pedal board around again but this was my set up for a long time:
Guitar> EB jr Volume> Boss TU-2> Boss CS-2> Sex Drive> Ibanez Super Tube> Ibanez OD855> Ibanez AD99> Ibanez FL301> Arion SCH-1> MXR Phase 100> Dunlop Tremolo/Stereo Pan> MXR Micro Amp> Amplifier
Since this pic I have replaced the Micro Amp with a Bad Bob and added the Zinky True Grit and an MXR Noise Gate Line Driver.
The madness never ends!
I bought that from Japan.
Here's mine. Pedalboard from http://www.nycpedalboards.com/
Effects sequence: Budda Wah=>Keeley Fuzz Head=>Boss TU-2=>Keeley Compressor=>Keeley Tubescreamer=>Barber Tone Pump=>Keeley Katana Boost=>Line 6 DL-4=>EB jr. Volume Pedal=>Loooper switcher for output to two separate amps. Voodoo Pedal Power II underneath the "riser" and all wired together with George L cables.
My Pedalboard was a bit more diverse in brand names a year ago, but what can I say - Keeley's stuff is incredible. Every single Keeley pedal replaced another one of the same function that didn't work as well and that includes some pretty big name brands.
this has been my main board for the last 4 years,the ed1 on the first row far left has been exchanged for a z vex fuzz factory.
I also use a VOX TONELAB SE a lot,for simplicity & great sound.
Wow, there are some big pedal boards out there.
Man, the distortion on your RATs are WAY up there. What are you using those pedals for? My RAT turns to mush with the distortion any higher than 10 or 11 o'clock. Just curious.
I must say...
that you have a pretty impressive set-up (even with your home-page). I was wanting to use a pedal board because of I have 6 effects, but I'm actually trying to pare it down to where I won't have to want one.
This is my pedalboard. It has 11 peds. Nothing fancy. Lots of Danelectro. Cheap but good peds. I am using a Bass Equalizer instead of a Guitar Equalizer. Bass Eq has higher range. The entire setup runs on an SKB PS-45 Stereo Pedal Board. Board can power 8 peds. The additional two that I have is powered through a 1 Spot Power Supply that can be plugged on the onboard outlets of the pedalboard. A single 1 Spot Power Supply can power 5 peds. If I am going to overdo it, I can run 12 more peds on this board. Yeah but what for??? The SKB is similar to a luggage. It weighs a TON without the effects and weighs a megaton with the effects.
Since I'm not good enough to gig/too lazy to get a band together, the 2 complete pedals I have (both DIY clones) are lying around. Since they're a Tycobrahe Octavia and distortion pedal, I never play with both of them on. There is also a rangemaster clone in several pieces because i forgot to order a footswitch.
My big board.
guitar -> loop-master.com in/out box -> Luxury Drive -> Fulltone Clyde wah -> MI Audio Blues Pro Overdive (lead) -> Keeley-modded Blues Driver (rhythm/light OD leads) -> Ibanez Phase Modulator (classic phaser to insane ring mods) -> Ibanez Delay/Echo -> TU-2 tuner. Lower left is tremeolo/reverb F/S for Vox AC15. Lower right is F/S for Fender Reverb Unit. SIgnal to amps via [webmaster edit] product named removed due to threatened legal action[/edit].
My grab-and-go board.
guitar -> Keeley Sparkle Drive -> Keeley Blues Driver -> BOSS Super Phaser (sometimes subbed with stock BOSS Tremelo -> Marshal Echohead (awesome delay pedal!) -> TU-2 tuner. Pedalboard is old Arion.
And one for playing steel guitar, which I'm not particularly good at.
Cheap lap steel -> Ibanez "bug" compressor -> Monte Allums modded SD-1 -> Ernie Ball Volume Pedal -> Holy Grail. Volume Pedal's Tuner Out to Sabine tuner. Case is an ATA briefcase.
There It Is:
My Old and new boards.
This was the first pedal board that never made it out to a live gig. I don't know what I was thinking. I was TOO big and not practical at all. I tried to cover ALL my basses with one board.
Here's my more practical and JUST what I need to do a gig board.
