Pedal Boards and Effects Question (UK)
First up, here's my setup:
Yamaha Pacifica 311H
Peavey ValveKing II 50w Tube Amp
Nordell Audio Isolated 10 Output Power Supply Unit
TC Electronic Polytune 2 Noir
Morley M2WV Wah Volume Pedal
Boss NS-2 Noise Surpressor
TC Electronic MojoMojo Overdrive
TC Electronic Dark Matter Distortion
Tone City Comp Engine Compressor
Front of Amp
Joyo JF-316 Future Chorus Ironman Mini
Tone City Tape Machine Delay
Boss GE-7 7 Band Graphic Equaliser
Boss RC-3 Loop Station
The GE-7 is there to essentially lower the output of the setup for bedroom playing, as even at 2w output, it is bloody loud. Also shapes the sound beautifully. I'm happy with the tone I am getting from this (not actually added the Morley WAH / Dark Matter yet as they arrive tomorrow).
Are there any tips or views on this setup? Suggested settings for a Satch-like tone? One thing, when I use the Gain channel on my amp, then boost it (also add the Mojo), my pinched harmonics never squeeeeeeeeeeeeel or even sound good. Any suggestions? Also, when I use the looper, the delay can be cut off. Any way to fix that?
Now onto the pedal board question...
My setup is a mess... no pedal board to tidy it up. Just wondering what pedalboard I should go for? I am not a live gigger - just in the man cave. Just need it to be tidier. I know Pedaltrain brand, which is expensive - but never know if there are better, cheaper alternatives (probably better if UK based answers as what is available in USA isn't often available here) - or if not, what Pedaltrain would be advisable? I can't really see them at a store, as the stores near me don't sell pedal boards - they have to order them in for you.
