    Well you've certainly got some nice pedals, but no board :p

    Owned a lot of pedals, but I sold most of them recently (20+). The pedalboards too. I only use four pedals, so during the quarantine I made myself a small pedalboard. So, this is it:

    Fantastic organization skills
    Is the board custom made?

    Never felt the need for a board, I'am just a bedroom player at the moment.

    This is where I've settled for now. I change the DOD Phasor 201 out for an MXR Phase 90 sometimes but the rest of this arrangement will likely stay the same for a while.

    nice board, do you use the put the gain right up on the OCD?
    I get a fuzzy sound when I do that.

    Thanks! Yeah, sometimes I run the gain way up, mostly for screaming, feedback laden leads. I also use it in combination with one of the two fuzz pedals on the board. It is too much saturation for chords or fast riffing but I really like what it does for long sustained notes.

    that's cool man. I usually put the gain between 12 and 1 to get a clearer sound. It is a great pedal and very versatile. It's pure rock n roll.

    Clean. I love it. Especially your tetris skills. Mine should be smooth too once I get two of my pedals back from loan

    Thanks mate. Yeah, spot on. It's been a constant game of Tetris. Finally happy with it though.

    Nice. How come you're using the ES-8 aswel? Are you running the HX in the loop? Just interested on how people run their gear.

    I still building it, so its not yet operational. Concept is to use HXFX in 4CM where the FX loop will be hardwired to the amp loop and bank/scene switching will be done with MIDI - I always have at least a bit of reverb on so it will be most likely always on anyway. I can always bypass it with MIDI too I believe. Then front pedals from HXFX (if I will use any) will take one of the ES-8 loops. I have enough drives and amps to not to take any drives from HXFX tho, I may frontload phaser or univibe from time to time only

    Been A while since I posted in a pedalboard thread. I have a lot of pedals and three board sizes to choose from, but decided to simplify things. I got bored with the huge board I was using through my Marshall 4x12, and also wanted something portable, so I dove into modulation. I am running a Pod Go through a Headrush FRFR-108 mounted on a PA stand, and I can't begin to tell you how impressed I am. Having been anti modulation in the past, I am now sold. The whole setup is easy to to transport and sounds fantastic.

    That said, I still love my tube amps. Especially my Marshall DSL 100, so I opted to pick through my pedal collection and creat a smaller board out of the pedals I tend to gravitate towards more often than the others. I ended up with this...

    20201002_183849.jpg

    Boss TU-3 > Keeley Compressor > MXR Phase 95 > Wampler Tumnus > Timmy > Fultone OCD > TCE Spark Mini > into front of the amp.

    Boss CH-1 > Boss DD-500 > Fulltone Supa-Trem > TCE Hall of Fame > into the effects loop.

    Works great switching between the OD and clean channel on the DSL 100.

    No room for a board in the current digs, I just have 'em set up next to the amps:

    This pic is about a year old. Maybe a little more. This board sees a lot of changes. Pedals come and go.
    Two of the boxes in this pic are gone. Sold that Catalyst and the Throttle Box maybe 9 months ago or so.
    This is a board I use with a smaller amp for buddy jams and such.
    My main performance board is a Helix Floor, which is infinitely more versatile.
