That should say *Nano, not Neo.
Switched it up a lot in the last couple of weeks. OX Fuzz II, Crybaby and an 03 Fulldrive 2. Plus the foot switch from my Swart for Trem and Space (Reverb). Still need to add a delay and maybe a vibe.
Been a while since I posted a pic as my board has significantly changed. Still Gilmour based of course. The M-1 is the best Fuzz/Muff pedal I’ve ever owned although my sights are set on my second TopTone DG-2 for modern Gilmour fuzz. Also saving up for a Boonar Delay that will go in place of the Alter Ego eventually. I’m still rearranging the pedal layout and in fact will move things around once I get a Boonar and tap switch for the Echoplex. The Fet Driver and my old trusty Keeley BD-2 are usually on together but I’m currently just swapping them out as needed.
YouTube "how to sound like xXxX without breaking the bank." It's a series ran by Rabea from andertons. They also have how to sound like xXxX by breaking the bank if you have lots of money also. The David Gilmour one is rather spectacular.
I recently wanted to add a HOF but could not fit it so I picked up a mini TC flanger and replaced my old Boss Hi-Band flanger with it. Flanger is a very occasional pedal so swapping to the mini was fine and it freed up the space I needed. If I add more, I might have to push my volume pedal off to the side of the board but I like to be able to just pick up the whole board, drop it in the carry bag and be on my way. SO... no more pedals for me! Haha right! I'm sure I will be be picking up a bigger board, then adding my next "essential" pedal, although it's getting hard to argue that another pedal is essential at this point.
Nice thread going on here - I wanna pitch in too!
Here's a board I put together in 2014 for some summer shows I was doing with my band.
Haha, I had a thing for the Mooer Micro Pedals, and they actually did a good job.
I certainly didn't miss out on the OD/DS section, lol! Oh well, each pedal had a purpose.
Pure Tone Buffer --> TC Electronic PolyTune 2 --> Mooer Green Mile Overdrive --> Mooer Hustle Drive Overdrive --> Mooer Rumble Drive Overdrive --> Mooer Solo Distortion --> Mooer Ultra Drive Distortion --> Mooer Mod Factory (chorus, phaser, flanger, etc.) --> Joyo D-Seed Delay --> Mooer Sky Verb Reverb. The pedals are powered by a T-Rex FuelTank Classic - great piece of gear, by the way!
My father and I built the board, and it was nice and compact - great for the summer venues
I have a few other pictures, of other and more recent boards, so I'll post more later
Please ask questions if you have any!
Thanks & Cheers
That's an awesome looking board. What do you think of the Mojomojo?
I have a Mojomojo, too ..
It is in heavy use .. my main od is the dirt cheap "american sound" joyo pedal.
It works fabulous ..
The Mojomojo is dead quiet - no hiss or anything - I use it to boost my od pedal with it. Because of the warm and thick and bassy sound it works great to thicken the lead sound and give sustain.
As a standalone it is very bass-heavy - you can dial that out, then it is a nice od.
But for boosting the od pedal (joyo) it is the best I ever had.
My sound is a mid-drive blues tone, and for leads I need sustain and thick sounding tone.
I tend to play with gain most of the time but unless I really need the high gain distortion I can get with the Rat, I go with the MojoMojo for everything else, it has a wide range and a very organic sounding OD. There is a switch on it to boost the signal so you can get some high gain sounds as well (though not on a level with the Rat but that is not its purpose for me). As Playit said in his post above, it's really quiet. I do have it in my Noise Gate loop but it would be fine outside of that loop. Great pedal, I recommend it!
Here's another compact pedalboard I put together in 2015...
I was quite happy with this board, and it gave me the sounds I needed, at that time.
PolyTune 2 --> Mooer Yellow Comp --> Mooer Hustle Drive --> Mooer Rumble Drive --> Boss CE-20 --> Mooer Ninety Orange --> TC Electronic Vortex Flanger --> Harley Benton D-Seed Delay.
The board is powered by the T-Rex FuelTank Classic - mounted under the top row of the pedals.
I'll get around to uploading a picture of my current board, real soon
Thanks & Cheers
Mine is very simple- will post a pic over the next day or so...
I saw in a previous post you (@KillingTone ) use a TC Sentry noise gate. I need a noise gate quickly or use at church ("tech team" is inexperienced- thinks a slight hiss is "horrible noise"). Hope you don't mind but I'm going to PM you with questions re: the Sentry...
Not tying to hijack or be obnoxious- I just need some "real" feedback from a brother Pennsylvanian...
Here is my most recent iteration of my board. I recently scaled down from my 16x32 ikea board to a 12x24" black bird pedalboard.
Signal Path: EQD Cloven Hoof > SP Compressor > Micro Pog > Walrus Voyager > Walrus Mayflower > Sans Amp GT2 > OBNE Reflector > EQD Grand Orbiter > El Capistan > MemoryMan TT-550 > MXR M300 Reverb > Ditto Looper. Polytune mini 2 is off of the tuner out on the disaster area DPC-8ez loop switcher. The disaster area TNT switch is controlling the favorite setting on the el capistan and the tap tempo of the TT-550.
I just got done resetting my board. Here it is in its most user friendly layout ever...The purple PXL-8 helped with that. The entire board, with the exception of making a change in phase 90 or 45, is controlled by the bottom row.
Sorry for the double post but here is a better pic that isn't obscuring the board with the lights.
Been a while since I updated my pedalboards. This past week I broke out all 18 of my OD, distortion, and fuzz pedals for a massive shoot out. I think I may have drove myself insane switching and rotating all of them on and off two boards. Almost broke out the third one but thought better of that idea. I would have had to been committed if I did. When you have that many pedals to mix and match, things start sounding the same. Obviously the Timmy pedals were a must, so that narrowed it down to 16 pedals. The end results were quite surprising, as it left a couple of pedals on the shelf that I thought would easily crush the competition (The BE-OD being the main one, and I am already missing my Swollen Pickle LOL). Thing is, certain pedals sound better together in certain situations.
Anyhow, these are the boards that will take me into December. Obviously things will change once Santa slides down the chimney.
Morley Power Wah > TCE Sub n Up > MXR Studio Compressor > DOD 440 Envelope Filter > MXR Phase 95 > Timmy > Wampler Tumnus > TCE Mojo Mojo > Fulltone OCD > TCE Spark Mini > MXR 10 Band EQ > MXR Analog Chorus > MXR Carbon Copy Deluxe > TCE Alter Ego > TCE Hall of Fame > TCE Shaker > Fulltone Supa-Trem > Truetone Pure Tone Buffer
Powered by two Truetone 1Spot Pro CS12's running into an original Rockman Smart Gate to the front of a Marshall Haze 40, and a super cool Blinky Pac-Man Ghost Plectrum Generator to boot.
Boss CS-3 > EHX Small Stone > EHX Neo Mistress > Timmy > EHX Soul Food > Fulltone '70 Fuzz > TCE Dark Matter > Boss GE-7 EQ > Boss CH-1 > MXR Carbon Copy
Powered by a Donner Power Brick (aka glorified daisy chain) running into the original Rockman Smart Gate into a Marshall Haze 40, or a Marshall 3315 4x12, or a Fender Mustang III V2. Depends upon the mood and the room I choose to jam in.
I always forget most people run their compressor before their overdrives.
Yep, time for another update.
Being that I got a Boss MD-500 last week, it was obvious everything had to change. Bought a new power supply (Truetone 1 Spot Pro CS7) and broke both of my boards down. It was time for the Pedaltrain Jr. to go back in its case and break out my Gator pedalboard, as it's a bit larger.
Being that my Pedaltrain Pro has two 1 Spot Pro CS12 power supplies, I decided that it might be best to use the new CS7 in place of one of the CS12's. This is where it got a little fun. Gator was awesome enough to include a place to put your power supply underneath the board. Sadly it was created to accommodate a Voodoo Lab supply and not a slightly larger (and better) CS12. I ended up having to dismantle the plate that holds the power supply and use Velcro to hold the CS12 in place. No biggie, but a bummer at the same time.
Anyhow, here are the results.
One Gator pedalboard (large) powered by a Truetone 1 Spot Pro CS12 > Guitar > Boss CS-3 > Timmy > EHX Soul Food > TCE Dark Matter > Fulltone '70 Fuzz > TCE Spark Mini > Boss GE-7 > Boss MD-500 > TCE Alter Ego x4 > out to original Rockman Smart Gate > Amp
I have a new Keeley compressor on the way to replace either the CS-3 or the MXR on my larger board.
Pedaltrain Pro powered by a Truetone 1 Spot Pro CS12 & CS7 > Guitar > Morley Power Wah > TCE Sub n Up > MXR Studio Compressor > MXR Phase 95 > Timmy > Wampler Tumnus > TCE Mojo Mojo > Fulltone OCD > Way huge Swollen Pickle > MXR 10 Band EQ > MXR Analog Chorus > Boss CH-1 > MXR Carbon Copy Deluxe > MXR Carbon Copy > TCE Hall of Fame Reverb > TCE Shaker > Fulltone Supa-Trem > out to original Rockman Smart Gate > Amp
Both of these boards kick butt. Obviously things will change after Christmas.
