Thread: Lets see them pedal boards!

  1. #21

    Re: Lets see them pedal boards!

    I've got two primary rigs - digital and analog.

    Here's the digital (Axe-FX MFC-101 controller and two Mission expression pedals). Many times I just pull the MFC-101 because I'm not a huge volume/wah pedal user. I use this with my Axe-FX rig:





    Here's the analog. Pedals are:

    Strymon El Capistan (Best digital tape delay ever)
    Nocturne Dyno Brain (RE-301 preamp in a box)
    BYOC Shredder (Marshall Shredmaster clone)
    BYOC Germanium E.S.V. Fuzz
    Keely modified true bypass TS-808 RI Tube Screamer
    Sonic Research Turbo Tuner

    Oh, and a Pedal Power to power it all.



    I use this with my '63 Bassman:

    S100s: [ 1997 red ]
    S300s: [ 1981 ]
    X170s: [ 1994 SB ]
    X500s: [2001 P90-T]
    Starfires: [ III-90 2002 'burst | IV 1998 blond | IV 2000 blond ]
    Bluesbirds: [ 1997 red | 2016 Iced Tea ]
    Nightbirds: [ GG 1986 Flamed 'burst | 1988ish curly lava-burst ]

    No pics, but lessee....

    A Boss compressor and Bluesdriver which I run into the GA1RT for very low volume, late night playing. A Dunlop Rotovibe and Wah. An elderly ART reverb/delay/flanger/chorus rackmount thing. A Deathmetal distortion (Digitech) and a bass compressor. A homebrew active tone control and a PAIA StackintheBox.

    Re: Lets see them pedal boards!

    Steelpickin,
    I see that you use the Boss BCB 60 for your effects pedals. I have been playing 1 1/2 years, and might get that same case. Do you consider that you have a nice neat, and modest pedla board considering you're a pedal steel player?

    I play mostly 12 string so right now I have:
    1) a. TC electronics polytune &
    b. Korg Pitchback Plus A/B tuner, connected in series
    3) Byrds 2 Jangelbox for the Ric 12 string guitar

    I'm thinking about getting a volume pedal, and loop pedal.

    Might get a tremelo, phaser and flanger eventually.

    I never needed any of these things when I made good money playing drums, but quit hard rock drumming many years ago. I now like guitar a lot more. But there are many guitar players around here like to play for free. I figure that the 12 string might distinguish my playing from the rest.

    Thanks! Nice stuff is cheaper than a mistress. :)

    I never liked modelers until I got the Axe. It doesn't deliver that "amp in the room" feel like a pair of 12" Celestions from a vintage head does, which I think is the hardest thing to let go of. Once I realized I was recreating recorded tones, and not a real amp, the Axe-FX made a lot more sense to me. It's way easier to transport than my Bassman, and 99% of the people listening couldn't tell the difference between them, so I dig it. Plus, I can get my 80's hair-band freak on without having to have an EVH amp in the house. :)

    Re: Lets see them pedal boards!

    Hi Craig,
    Yes I really like this pedal board. Small and lightweight weight. Dont really use much of the effects on it for steel besides the Boss DD-3 and I now use a Keeley "Fuzz head" a bit..but,I also run an A /B switch and use this same set-up for my Tele for steel / Tele gigs with good results :)

    Re: Lets see them pedal boards!

    This model of Boss pedal board looks about right for me. I'm wondering just a few things if I buy one:

    1. Most of my effects pedals are not Boss pedals. The most radically different one is a large Byrds 2 Janglebox. Will these still fit in OK?

    2. Can you merely set your pedals in there to use? In other words I don't want to make anything permanent until I make a lot of adjustments to get the right feel of it. Will the electric cords hold them in place very well? I know that you can velcro them in, but are there any other options to hold the pedals on the board?

    Sorry if these questions don't sound brilliant, but I don't want to ask the local folks and reveall how much I am not a pro. I can match wits with any drummer, but guitar technology is what I really like.

    Thank you,
    Craig

    Re: Lets see them pedal boards!

    The Boss pedals will fit perfectly. It also comes with extra foam for the bottom so you can trim to fit just about any other pedal.

    Re: Lets see them pedal boards!

    Here's my gadget collection, most of it anyway. Most times I run everything thru the little Yamaha mixer.

    Mostly a generic collection, enough to keep me entertained. Recently added The KORG pitchblack tuner & like it a lot. I wish the board had a master on/off switch, the Jamman is a pain because it has no on/off function & I have to disconnect the plug to turn it off.

    I built an inclined base for the pedalboard, a prototype actually, built from scrap in about an hour.
    Time well spent, everything is much more accessible & convenient. Incorporated about a 1/4 " lip on the bottom edge, lower row of pedals sits snugly with no need for velcro.
