    ... and can you rhyme off the pedals on that board? Looks like a nice one but having some trouble figuring a couple out...

    one of many things I find interesting about this thread. you can see trends, come and go. and the few that stay. very cool. love all the photos. i need to build a pedal board. even if my pedals are cheap. still fun to play with. some of these not so popular pedals from the 80s sound great. the ugly 80s peavy stomp box's with the rubber condom covering the foot switches sound fantastic. rock on.

    I felt like the board needed a little mojo. :D

    That is a most excellent board. I would guard it with my life at gigs if I were you. A lot of coveted pedals on that board. :D

    Never had a pedalboard before; but recently I bought a one spot and I really love it.
    So I decided to stop using batteries and to build a tiny board that can sit in my guitar case with cables and everithing. The Multistomp is a great space saver.
    The two tiny pedals are a octave up and down fuzz, and a one transistor booster overdrive (a la muffer, electra, bazz fuss).
    Right now it's just a piece of cardboard with pedals screwed on, I plan to find a better material of course, but I had the urge to show it.

    There's only one phaser on there...the Small Stone.

    Great board. Seeing a lot of country guys use the Wampler Ego comp. I'm using the newer Barber Tone Press Compact and loving it. I'm getting an Ego in the mail tomorrow to do a review of. I think I'm going to do a shoot out/comparison video of the Ego and the TP Compact. I haven't seen one on YouTube yet. Should have it up by this weekend sometime.

    Thanks!

    I dig the Ego Comp a lot. I think it's more in the vain of a Dyna Comp where as the Tone Press is a bit more transparent or optical compresson. Both are cool but I'd assume they are a bit different. If I were guessing I'd say the Ego Comp is more squishy.

    Interesting. Never tried a Tone Press but I've heard about them...somewhere I thought I read they were optical.

    I definitely prefer Dyna/ROSS based compression - even Orange Squeezer.

    I've tried optical compressors like an Empress, Demeter, or Diamond and just didn't find them to have much of that squish. Because I'm strictly a flatpicker, I need some of that steel like squash to make it more percussive and sound like fingers. I'll have to try a Tone Press.

    In a moment of rash excitement, I thought that Whirlwind comp was a phaser. Whoops! In any case, nice choices. You can cover a lot of ground with that set up.

    I use to have an old Boss CS-2 and it was crazy transparent. The Barber TPC reminds of the CS-2 a lot but with more features and a little more squish. I found the CS-2 too transparent.

    Gary,
    Looking forward to seeing the difference between the new Barber Tone Press and the Ego Comp. I have never seen a comparison between the 2. Are you getting settled into Nashville?
