    I have a Full Tone Fat Boost far left not in photo here.

    It was my original board and had digital. I ripped it apart, built a newer board...still had digital.

    I slapped this board together with pedals lying around and turns out all analogue. (TU-2 digital?).

    This has TS (Cream), Tube OD (Tonebone) and the Fat Sandwhich which I think could be an inmproved MXR + sound. Angry Troll is when I get bored with signal.

    Grey pedal is Vox30 Amp sim which is last in order.

    Wow, how do you get in there with your foot to turn them on/off without hitting other ones by accident?

    Except for top row, most pedals remain on or off.

    I'll have to practice Kung Fu in all likelyhood.

    That's not a pedal board. This is a pedal board.

    I have a GE-7 I did not include. Probably more of a metal thing.

    I find pedals essential because I need to play at low volumes and need a pedal to get a gritty tone and still have clarity.

    I usually have 2 od/distortion pedals on my board(s).

    One is to get a mild grit on chords and the other is a bit more aggressive.

    Now, there's the vibe of delay............or is it, ambiance?

    I usually leave some sort of delay on and I get nuts if the delay fade/trail off isn't clear.

    I have a love hate relationship with chorus.

    I guess it's from my love of Any Summers or the curse of Andy Summers.

    Then there's Brian May.

    I once jammed with Pete Steele during my Summers/May infatuation.

    Christ, it wasn't working.

    IMO, my Iron Ether Polytope does the chorus thing by pitch shifting or have this note warbble thing going on...................I like it a lot.

    Then, there's being in tune.

    I'm very conscious of being in tune..................really in tune.

    My head twists when my guitar is off .................even slightly out.

    It bugs me.

    The GE-7 is a nice piece. Some would say "essential," but at least worth its real estate.

    If you have Chorus and it sounds thin, try Way Huge Angry Toll. It really beefs up lost tone.

    It was time to upgrade the mickey mouse linkage from the dirt board to the effects board. It was a good time to upgrade when I added the iso brick on the dirt side. The boards now can be updated to use as singles or linked easy enough. The boards are Temple Audio Trio 28s. I really like the Temple board solutions. Boards by themselves are relatively cheap, they get you with the mounts and modules.

    Prior to the change the boards were linked cabling thru the cutouts, worked ok, but not the best method. Less hassle making changes too.

    Left side bottom cable is straight through from the Thomas Organ Wah - > Fulltone MDV-2 -> Loop Switcher Input on the Effects board. Loop 1 on that side goes to the Analog Man Comp. Loop 2 goes back to the dirt board with the remaining 2 cable connections between the boards. I noticed too, much quieter with this change and the power supply added. ISO bricks under both boards, no daisy chains going on. Joyos are cheap switchers buty they work well. PXL-Live is a midi switcher also, both have 8 loops. PXL-Live is buffered bypass, PXL8 is true bypass. I use labels on magnetic tape to ID the loops, makes for easy changes.

    Nice set up, you need (3) boards now!!

    BTW, how do you like that Ditto Looper? I have a love/hate relationship with mine. Why, I can't get there to be NO slight pause at the end of the loop and when it stars over. Is there some magical trick to doing this so its seamless when it repeats???

    Lol.. If I gigged, there would only be (1) board. Probably just the Tube Driver, OCD and BE-OD with the MDV-2 and Wah and Tuner. For effects probably the Belle Epoch, Nebulous and Ditto if they fit.

    The Ditto is like my other old Akai Headrush loopers. The trick is practice. It's all in the timing. It is hard to get a perfect loop for sure, it doesn't quantize, I guess the Boss loopers do. When I do get a loop I like I save it in the wiretap. Then I can recall anytime later. Not like the Boss loopers where you can save multiple loops directly.
