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.

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.
