Summertime glamour shot
Mine rides around in a pelican case. I don't like futzing with stuff at shows or rehearsals so this is quick, easy and portable.
Sooo, is this an upgrade from your June 11th post?
Keeps changing all the time. Love my new Quilter head. Always liked the idea of a pedalboard amp.
Here is the latest update from my gig Friday. Sure do like the view from here!
I think this will be my final setup. Honestly , for what I play these pedals give so many possibilities. Now....just one P90 loaded Tele and a few more amps.....
This is for my acoustic guitar. About three months ago I started booking myself as a solo acoustic act and have settled on a board after a bit of trial and error. The board is just that -- some scrap left over from making a speaker baffle with a 2x2 strip glued & screwed to the front edge to angle things up a bit.
TU-2 tuner > Donner Dynamic Wah > Mosky XP Booster > Dano Fab Chorus > Love Pedal EPH-3 delay.
I also have a a Behringer ADI preamp that gets used when necessary. If it's just me, then the guitar goes into a mixer input with a decent preamp. If I have anybody else singing with me, then their mic gets the good preamp channel and I used the Behringer on the guitar into one of the other channels. Everything, including the DI, runs off the power bank battery so no extra cables. I've done up to five hours (less breaks) and the battery charge still showed 75%. I'll add some reverb off of the mixing board sometimes, but am really happy with the EPH-3 on it's own.
I need better "velcro" that will stay attached to the bottom of the pedals. The strips on the bare wood are rock solid, but it's peeled off both metal and rubber pedal bottoms. And now that I'm (at least temporarily) happy with things, I'm going to cut some holes in the board to make the cables a bit more neat.
Thing I might change?
A tuner with much, much brighter lights. On a full-sun day, even with some shade, it's difficult to see the lights on the TU-2 (or my clip-on tuner for that matter).
The XP Boost works great for finger picking. But for solos when I'm the only guitarist, it's a bit too much of a boost even at it's lowest setting. If I'm playing with other instruments, then the solo boost is good. But since I only paid about $24 for it, and other options (EQ, Spark boost, etc.) seem to cost at least twice as much, I'll stick with it for the time being.
The Dano Fab Chorus sounds great, especially at just $19. I never use it too heavily. But the switch is kind of a pain when the pedals beside it just have plain old push buttons. Not a problem turning it on/off for a full song but it is an issue if I wanted to switch in the middle of something.
I put the Dynamic Wah in there for one specific song I'm doing with a female vocalist duo. Pink's "Perfect" has this pseudo-rap bridge and this pedal works great for it. So I've added it to some other songs as well since it's already there. But it does come on pretty strong. I wouldn't mind having a blend so the original acoustic gets through with the wah added on top (or next to, depending how you want to look at that). I looked up some blender pedals, and the BOSS LS-2 Line Selector, but there are several other things I could buy for gigging before I spend money on that.
Latest iteration, went back to wired IEM due to getting a ton of radio interference on my audio 2000's wireless (not many open frequencies in our area).
MIM Fender Tele -> Comp -> Joyo zip drive -> Bad Monkey -> Boost -> Delay -> Reverb -> American Sound -> DI box ->Behringer xair16
BeatBuddy direct to mixer for practice and/or if drummer is not available (used it live a couple times)
MicMechanic in line from Mic to mixer.
I've recently swapped out the EHX Bass preacher for an Xotic SP Compressor and added my (1987) RAT pedal.
Ready for anything board
First studio session with the board. It performed exceptionally - We actually ended up using the Riverside as our main drive for all our rhythm tracks. I was doubtful when I bought it, but I wanted to give it a chance, and what an amazingly versatile pedal it turned out to be!
This thread looks like it's been going for a good long time... 2006-2019... 11,294 posts... Impressive!
So adding mine in here too... Lets take it to 11,295!
I'm only recently getting started with this board, but it's more or less complete now... Just the addition of a SansAmp for my Bass and we're done... Or that's what I tell the wife...
So here are the goods, in their current order:
Behringer Hellbabe Wah -> Mosky Silver Horse (Klon Klone) -> Ammoon American Sound pedal (Fender style amp modeler) -> Ammoon Pockverb (reverb/delay) -> Ammoon Stereo Looper pedal (second input will take the Bass amp in a box)
Might change the order of a few pieces... eg put the silver horse in front of the Wah... the Pockverb before the American Sound...
Any suggestions... trying to keep this fairly simple yet versatile...
Edit: wrong number for post count... doh!
Edit 2: And yes, I realise that I don't actually have a board yet...
I love your board, who made it?!?
A man with a plan right there. Love it.
I learned how to hand cut dovetails making a Christmas gift for my wife, and it has been fun to exercise that skill working on this project.
