    Default Pedalboard Pics ?

    I know we've got a thread for gear pics, but they all seem to be of guitars and amp/rack rigs....maybe this should have gone there, but anyway....

    I'm in the process of building a custom pedalboard, and I'm about a month away from having it finished. In my process of obsessed research, I've seen A LOT of board pics and I'm fascinated by how gear-heads put together their pedal gear and why.

    So if you guys can indulge me, I'd love to see some board pics, and some commentary on what your favorite pedals are and how you came to decide what your chain order would be....

    I think this is worthy of its own thread.

    The picture of my current pedalboard rig would be a picture of the floor, because at present I don't have one. I used to have about ten pedals arranged on a Furman SPB-8 board, but I ditched that in favor of a larger hard case with a separate power supply (which I ironically just sold today on Craig's List).

    Well, I don't have an any pics cause I'm lazy that way,
    I have an SKB powered board--It's a flight case looking thing with (3) 120v to 18v wall warts and about (8) 9v connections. It has guitar in and effects loop, stereo, mono, guitar out and an xfmr--which is really a power cleaner ect.
    Signal chain is: From the guitar(mainly a USA Wolf) into the board then board to Chromatic tuner into MXR 10 band eq into EVH WahWah into EVH Phasor into EVH Flanger into MXR Stereo Chorus into Carbon Copy into DD-7 into MXR Smart Gate and then straight out to 5150 III 50 watt.
    I took the ABY switch out (I can't rememeber what it is right now) and am running mono rather then stereo because I have been replacing speakers in various cabinets I have.
    I have many other pedals but I like this signal chain.
    I considered buying some of the Wompler line boosters but I know the digital tuner images the signal as does the DD-7 and Smart Gate.
    I moved the 10 band eq around and found that it sounds best to me in the front of the chain. I mostly use it for a slight gain boost and very subtle wavelength change. The phasor, flanger, chorus just sounds good to me.
    Now, the Carbon Copy and the DD-7 I spent alot of time with. I was basically chasing Eddie's live performance of the spaceship noises and Cathedral. I have gotten damn close with this setup considering I don't have the rack gear he uses. Rack gear is quickly getting on the list.
    I used to use the effects loops of my other amps (phasor, flanger, chorus) but have yet to use it on 5150 50w.

    It seems I may be obseesed with Eddie VanHalen and may need to seek medical attention for this issue but, I'm okay with that.
    Seriously, with this set up I can play everything from old Led Zep and Jimi Hendrix to Jeff Beck stuff to --God forbid--Metallica and my own stuff, of course.
    Screw Metallica !!!

    I gotta get ready for work so I will stop rambling on now.

    Guitar > PolyTune > Dunlop Wah > Wampler Ego Compressor > Wampler Pinnacle Deluxe > MXR Badass 78' > Front of 5150...

    Effects Loop Send > Boss Harmonizer > MXR EVH Phase90 > MXR SmartGate > Digitech Multi-Chorus > Boss DD6 Delay > Boss Loop Station > MXR Micro Amp Boost > Effects Loop Return...


    That's the plan anyway, I'll have to hear how things sound and maybe switch a few things around, we'll see.

    I have about half of the gear, and my custom board went to powder coating yesterday. My loop switchers should be here early January.

    This is one with their standard board, he said it's the biggest one they've done. I didn't think 32x16 was really THAT big....
