Post your Pedalboard

Just testing the fix for the image posting problem and seeing if we can get a new thread going as it's quiet here.

Idea: post a shot of your current Pedalboard and let us know why you like it etc.

Mine:
- Whammy IV because I've been having a bit of a buckethead phase..
- Crybaby
- cheapo tuner
- Boss compressor
- Behringer Tubescreamer clone (I back the gain off quite a bit and this is a really neat clean boost)
- Marshall Jackhammer as a distortion for dirty (hate it, think this gets swapped out for a good fuzz pedalsoon)
- tremelo (usually my Voodoo Labs one, but currently a generic replacement while i fix a loose connection on the good one)
- Boss DD6
- Looper

Pros: really versatile rig
Cons: limited dirty sound. I'm thinking it needs a better replacement for the Marshall pedal. Probably a small enclosure Big Muff reissue...

Any recommendations?
Lately I play lots of buckethead, Floyd and satch covers and the odd post rock style ambient thing with a JS1000 into a sh*ty solid state Marshall.

Well the photo posting bug seems fixed. ( how to do it if it's affecting you too - go onto the control panel for your profile in desktop view and delete all the attachments saved against your profile)

Re: Post your Pedalboard

I call it my glorified pallet, I'm a forklift mechanic, so it's my kind of humor

It's a lot of pedals... that's what I am told anyway

Tuner - cuz I hate the clip on tuners
Cali 76 compressor, cuz ya gotta play some funk
Digitech Drop - Cuz your cover band wants to play barracuda but no man except Robert Plant can sing it in standard tuning
Boss PH-1 Phaser - cuz Analog is king, and you can't play any Van Halen without one
Boss BF-3 Flanger - ...oooo Barracuda
Tone city Fuxx Fuz - It's cheap, small, and sounds like hendrix
Tone city Angel wing Chorus - We play some Police and it's also small
Boss DD-3 - It's good enough and I am too cheap to buy a DD-7
Boss RV-6 - Can't play classic rock without reverb
Morely Volume Plus - Because if you run a volume pedal in the effects loop, it can be a boost pedal
Cry Baby Jerry Cantrell Wah - Sounds nice and dark, plus it has a voicing knob, so that's cool .

I wish I had a whammy pedal! I'd have to build a bigger board though, and... It's already heavy.

Pros: It has it's own internal Voodoo Lab power supply and is SUPER quiet.

Cons: I am running out of room

When I'm gigging rather than just a practice/jam session rig then i always throw a volume pedal in too. Makes balancing everything out with everyone else so much less fiddly too if you're playing little venues without a good sound guy.

I'd have the purple flanger too if I had space. Because... we used to do a lot of Cure covers. I think Robert Smith uses that model a lot.

Re: Post your Pedalboard

if you are looking for a fairly inexpensive but awesome sounding gain pedal, I saw on Andertons music stores youtube channel a pedal called golden plexi. It's a tone city pedal and sounds REALLY good. I don't use any distortion or OD pedals because I have a high gain amp. But that little thing is impressive. I think it's like $50 or $60.

wow that's cheap. I'll see if anywhere local stocks. Plus it's tiny so it's gonna fit 😀

Soooo.... Not trying to de-rail this thread, but... a drop tune pedal? Until now I thought I needed a lot of guitars, since changing tunings on floating bridge guitars is such a pain. How do you like the way it works? I watched a youtube video and the dude really liked it, seemed to sound good too.


BTW - What kind of Ibanez is that guy using? Obviously a Vai signature, only way cooler than most!!

I love the thing. It sounds really nice, it's not buggy sounding, but it is a power hog. It needs at least a constant 250mA power supply, otherwise it buzzes a bit. So if you're using a daisy chain, it can cause some noise. We also cover no one knows from queens of the stone age. It's in C standard tuning.

When i am practicing at home i sometimes use it to be a full octive lower to loop a bass line in my loops when i use my ditto pedal, which isn't on that board.

I got round to dusting off my whammy pedal and playing with using it to drop tune rather then shift up. Something I'd been meaning to try after reading this.

I wouldn't play a whole song like that. Maybe the drop pedal works better.

But what I did find was great was using it when looping to play Cure songs.
Robert Smith plays those melody lines on a fender bass 6. Suddenly I realised I can copy them pretty effectively on my JS with just a little whammy work!

Looks like a very flexible set up.
There's loads of boutique delays out there nowadays but I still think boss DD6 / DD7 are pretty hard to beat for the money.

Lockdown isn't good for GAS. But buying more guitars feels extravagant in the current situation so I've been trading pedals in and out...

Upgraded pedal board now a post-rock looping dream.

Added the big Muff & Old Blood Noise Endeavors Dark Star reverb early in the chain. Two loopers. The boss Looper is loaded with samples the 2nd one for the live improv/looping..

Whammy shifting down for bass lines or cello like melodies when used with an eBow...

Volume pedal will double up as an expression pedal for the Darkstar when the TRS Y lead arrives next week..

Lots of fun as the same board will do both experimental stuff and straight up blues rock with equal ease..

I believe that is a JEM10th with aftermarket EMG's instead of stock chrome Evo's. Everything is not reflective and shiny which does look kind of cool.

Thanks... Yes, very nice looking guitar. I like the Jem style guitars, but some colors and swirls are just a little too out there for my taste. Love the classy binding on that 10th though.

Re: Post your Pedalboard

I need to get my pedals in order. It's time.
I just ordered a power supply and the 2 pedals I am confident will be on my pedalboard (I need an actual board too) are my H9 and amplifiers footswitch. I tried assembling a pedalboard before but I took it too seriously and was not successful. I failed to put pedals onto a board. This time around will be different because I know why the first board failed. With that said, I will probably need logistical help at some point.
