I'm a teacher and am used to being ignored. Ignore away!
Here’s my Pedaltrain Classic 1 (PT-CL1) with a Voodoo Lab 4x4 Isolated Power Supply.
Polytune 3 (Tuner) > Touch Wah (TW-1) > Blues Driver (BD-2W) > Distortion (DS-1) Keeley Mod > Equalizer (GE-7) > Acoustikar > Compressor > Phase 95 > Chorus (CE-2) > Pink Panther (Delay) > Reverb (M300) > Volume (VP JR) > Ditto (Looper) > Hatchet (Buffered Splitter)
I’m quite happy with this setup. I plan on including the JHS Bonsai when it comes to local retailers.
Here are both my boards - the top one is for my acoustic guitars (soon I’ll be adding a second ParaEQ and getting a smaller di and keeping the big orchid one for quick changeover gigs) and the bottom is my electric board.
Both are pedaltrain metro 16s and they’re both using true tone cs6 power supplies.
I’m not really using the keeley at the moment as I tend to run my amp high and my tele volume low so I might swap that out for something but there’s not anything else I need at the moment and there might be gigs where having that is handy so it’ll stay for the time being...
The electric board goes into a 65 Princeton Reverb ri
You're quite right.
I put one of them together turning the two pieces around. I kind of like that and I can tell which is which; although they are identical except for how I set the controls.
Here's is what I've been playing around with lately. Just made some changes in the last few days. I have an Orange Rocker 15, Pedaltrain Classic 2. I have a One Spot Pro CS12 sitting under there.. installed really nicely and I have amp + pedal board plugged into a Furman SS6B. My house is pretty noisy (I practice in my finished basement) and the CS12 + Furman really help. On good days I don't use the Hum Debugger but on bad days it comes in really handy.
Input is Guitar -> PolyTune -> Hum Debugger -> Kongpressor -> Looking Glass -> Op Amp BMP.
The footswitch is obviously it's own thing.
The FX Loop is Memory Boy -> Polara -> Ditto -> Beat Buddy.
I only recently put the Beat Buddy in on the main amp.. trying to force myself to use it more. Usually I run it through something else, but it makes it more work to turn it on, I've got the space so I'm going to leave it here for a while for practicing.
I could honestly drop the Kongpressor, Looking Glass, and BMP. The amp's dirty channel is all I need 99% of the time. But I am quite happy with all 3 of those pedals and I've got the space.
I could see myself going to a smaller board if i was moving around a lot to go play with people. I'd probably drop the Ditto + Beat Buddy and maybe compressor and/or some of the dirt stuff off assumign I was still using this amp.
I can use the Memory Boy's modulation as a fill in for Tremolo, etc.. since my amp doesn't have it. The memory boy is a new addition and I really like it.
My new "basic board"
FRV1... my favourite pedal... been an essential part of my tone since mid 2010 (maybe early 2011... or sometime in between).
With or without OD's it just sounds amazing through the AC30...
Started with a Nano+, then got more pedals. Then got a Metro 24. Then more pedals. And now that I've added a couple more, I realize the Metro 24 has to go.
as it currently sits. nothing too crazy. actually some of these pedals will probly be coming off soon. still on the hunt for the elusive perfect OD.
For a minute there, I thought I was looking at my board (Muff, CE & Ultimate)
New small board wired up with 3 monkeys solderless, my spare Cioks DC8 and populated with big box fuzzies. Also, just got a Strymon Zuma, to link with the Ojai I already had, for my big board.
Full range of transparency on there man, noice...
That's what I call a mean board... GREAT!!!
Well done... Now that’s my kind of pedal board!
I’ve got something similar. Three pedals are something you’d see in a music shop + a whole whack of DIY clones of other pedals I wanted.
That empty space on the lower right corner is going to be filled up with an Analogman Sun Face NKT Red Dot that is on its way with DHL Delivery right now... can’t wait until later today!
I'm a big fan of the FRV-1 Reverb... I don't do surf or spacey stuff, just simple blues but I love the tone I get out of if using the Tone, Dwell and Mix knobs on this pedal in particular.
Thanks! It's fun building, eh?
