Thought I'd share the new, trimmed down pedal board I just put together.
If any of you are familiar with the monster I assembled a few years back, this is a much more user friendly piece of equipment. I kept a lot of the same pedals from the old one, I just thinned it down to essentials. I like Boss. They're fairly indestructible, and reasonably priced.
The chain: (linked up in this order)
TC Electronics tuner. This is an upgrade from the Boss T-2 I had in the old board. This puppy can do sharps and flats, a must for playing open E live
VOX wah. Still the best on the market in my opinion
Boss PH-3 Phase Shifter. I play a lot of clean tones, this creates a bit of flavour.
Boss CS-3 Compression/Sustain. Great for pulling a Country "pop" out of my LP
Boss SD-1 Super Overdrive/Distortion. I shipped this bad boy to Six a few years back for a sweet mod. It has become a priceless addition to my tone.
Boss FZ-5. I don't use this much, but its a nice addition if we do Cream tunes
TC Electronics "Corona" Chorus. I had a Boss, this blew me away!!!
Boss TR-2 Tremelo. Another pedal to fill out clean tones
All powered by the "Voo-doo Labs" Pedal Power plus 2. This is a must if you have a board this size, beats the heck out of daisychaining off one or two plugs.
The blue cables are "George L's". They ain't cheap, but if my guitar is worth a few grand, my amp 800, all my pedals push close to another grand, why would I trust my sound to run though cables that are a buck each. That's just my theory....
The box I built, and will eventually drill holes and run the chords on the underside to clean things up a bit.
I hope you like my latest time consumer.
Don't resent growing old, too many are denied the privilege
