Guitarists - Show me your pedalboard! Effects Pedals, Units & Accessories

That's what I'm debating. I have already spent 170$ on a boss and have a carbon copy 150$?
I'd keep the carbon copy but if I spend another 150-200$ on a delay pedal I might as well save for something that has firmware updates, tons of presets available, foot tapping, something that will be hard for me to replace.
Cause the boss has been on my board since 2006-07 or so, and I already wanted to replace it when the dd7 came out less than 6 months later.
The nova repeaters looks promising as well as the strymon stuff.
I may buy a used damagecontrol timeline

Does Barber even do delay pedals?
Wampler makes an analog Faux tape delay I know of and I love the Wampler quality but the TC has like 10 modes, loop and all that. Had I no delay at all I would probably get the Wampler just because I want to build my collection of those pedals.

PGS is $30 off on the Flashback w the email code they sent me, pretty freakin' cheap price for a quality pedal, does anything a Boss or MXR can do and better if you ask me. They are one trick ponies for more money??As far as I know Boss are not true bypass and their buffer circuits are not what one would term high end quality. The only pedal that comes close to the Flashback is the Hardwire Delay and it is damn good I had them both and I really liked the TCs ability to not sound so digital and hard unless of course you want it to.

If I were to drop a lot of bucks it would be the Eventide. Never had Strymon no idea what they run or how good they sound. What is a good vendor for Strymon, I have never run across them until I saw some using them here.

The little TC is like $130 right now, pisses me off because I paid $160+ for mine. Killer delay pedal, I love mine, TC has a good rep. As far as Boss goes, I left them years back. I just cannot really deal w Boss anymore, I look at them as more entry level pedals. OK if you get some mods done on them but you end up with enough bucks to just get a better pedal. Boss delays are pretty straight up digital w no modes for tape, analog, lofi, and others. The Flashback has it all and that little puppy sounds great, lays back in the mix and morphs into your tone, much less it also does mutli taps at 1/4 note, 1/8 note or both, try finding that on most pedals period.

I just discovered the Strymon website, wo, now that is some high end pricey gear. I hope its worth the money. That new delay unit looks amazing sort of like the Eventide.

I remain fans of Barber, Wampler for all things overdrive and high gain. I would like to see a high voltage plate real tube OD or gain from these builders. I have one of the Ibanez Tube Kings that ramps to a 100v internally, really has a great sound but I am sure the gurus could do a great one.

Hermida is also cool and the Timmy by Cochran but others have gotten close to or copped that circuit like Lovepedal is reported to have done.

I realize guitarists have little to say but how about a brief walk through of your board chain, it is interesting to see how some run things and what they have come up with. It also is a learning experience for others.

Yes I've seen them.. DSP is the new thing to use..Well not really new.
They look great and the clips I've heard of the Lex sound really really good...

something I was thinking about trying for my modulated reverb sound was running my Dd-6 mono into my rv5 mono into my 2nd input on the dd6 and back out the stereo out on the RV-5.

Not permanent, just wondering if it might get a nice shimmering cascaded delay-reverb sound

I think you might get some weird effect for sure. Let us know what happens.

Since it is a matter of reverb and delay there is a less likelihood of phase cancellation by repiping the stereo image. I think some effects may not allow a feedback loop from their left back into their right, I've never tried it but it if it works you might could get some wicked multiple delay taps going. I've also run reverb before delay and it works but I tend to go back to delay into reverb which is what I am running now.

Are you still running a mono amp input? Sounds like it. I am considering expanding to a 2nd amp so I can try and run a stereo L/R image using my amp loop chain feeding one side into each of the 2 amps loops for stereo. I have always loved stereo imaging on chorus and delays. Cool as well to put reverb on one side of the delay to a stereo feed which pulls the stereo image wider and more deep sounding. I am wondering if this will work without making ground loop or causing any noise.

Thursday my goal is to get my 4x12 back from my buddies house and install the new speakers so I can wire it up for my mono/stereo setup. Then I will be using a stereo setup mostly.

I have summing pedal where I can run pedalboard stereo or mono. It's passive innards with a LED Indicators. It connects the two signals into summing together when ran mono and then you can flick the switch and go stereo where the jacks just connect together.

This makes it so I have a constant simple rig/complicated rig option without redoing my pedalboard. I have not used it much. I need to plug it in with my reverb and delays that pan back an forth to see if there is any phasing problems when the pedal thinks it's sending stereo bouncing and they both get sent to the same input. Any weird swelling or dying that might take place when they cross that "middlepoint" ya know?
But it's a good idea. My buddy chuck made it for me when we talked about the annoyance of removing patch cables from stereo rigs to be able to use them in situations where you can't bring 2 amps

I thought if you summed true stereo you got phase cancellation issues. They sum the outputs on my pedals to a mono jack, have no idea how they do it.
I am lucky my cab is wired mono and stereo but I am looking at getting a new twin amp as to not split the cab that way I can separate the sides across the room, that is too cool to get delay panning back and forth.

ITs not that my pedals ant do mono. But when you plug in the patch cables a failure to run an output your repeats get cut in half.
I play mono sometimes and stereo sometimes. And since I run out of my chorus into a stereo delay in/out and a stereo reverb in/out, it's a pain to remove patch cables on a tight pedalboard when I wanna play mono. The way the pedal works is that it takes a stereo input an sums them OR connects them as intended.
That way on mono gig/practices I can run a single output or run a stereo output.
The idea is NOT messing with my pedalboard as much as possible.

With my straight mono/stereo 4x12 I feel they pan pretty well. I like separate cabs, but If you put the cabs too far apart it's weird Like when stereo speakers are not properly placed.

They don't completely cancel out. At least when I tried it for a couple minutes it didnt. It's a pedal or yet to solder up enough patch cables for. I could maybe wire a phase reverse switch if it's really noticeable when cranked up.

Tim - are you using this wiring or something similar for your summing box?
Why Not Wye?
Old 5th October 2011

VERY similar except mine uses no resistors to keep noise Down. And since the outputs of my pedals are in parallel the resistances are pretty much the same as my pedals output impedance I believe.
It's as simple as wiring two jacks the output of the mono signal is always connected to one jack and the other one goes to a A/B footswitch where one goes the the "mono" output and the other goes to a separate jack with when in "stereo" mode simply connects inputs and outputs an when in mono mode it jack runs both signals to the mono out

Tim - if you read the Rane article, you need those resistors in there to have it accurately sum to mono without phase and other issues. Rane wrote the definitive book on this for live sound and recording; any noise would be negligible compared to crosstalk and/or phase issues.

I understand how your switch part works, but the mono summing seems to be exactly what the article warns about.

I didn't read the article, just glanced at the schematic for 5 seconds. I haven't stared inside the pedal hardly.

My buddy that Builds pedals built it an gave it to me to try out

Just moved stuff around & nothing is connected, but you have eyes & can see that...

Ibanez SB7 Bass Synth
Ibanez TK999HT Dist
Morley Bass Wah PS2
MXR Custom Comp
Vox Brit Boost OD
BBE Mind Bender Chor/Vib
MXR Carbon Copy AD

Constantly been playing around with the path since July when I got my geetar, '74 Quad Reverb & began collecting the pedals pictured.
The 100W Quad currently gets very little action in this tiny, thin walled space; instead I use the Wollensak r2r in PA mode w/Califone 12" as a practice rig...which uses a pair of miniature power type-12ab5 yielding about 10w push-pull... sonic candy when driven and somewhat similar to a lower output el84.
Both were $0. It's amazing what people throw away...and you wouldn't know they were salvaged by the tone. Plus throwing in a pair of 60s Mullard 12au7 & 12ax7 didn't hurt...surely helping me sound better than I am while having very little actual experience [,skill?] & only a vague idea what exactly I'm doing and want to do. I'd say my ear is my best attribute as a music man who has intentionally been avoiding 'the right way of doing things' in favor of searching for a better way; my diy way. Even if it's the hard way, I want to hear something different which aint exactly easy in late 2011. I'll also be the first to admit that killer effects [esp dist and delay] can either really help sloppy technique sound like it's intentional, or greater amplify the fail.

This is a great thread!! Been following it for ages and have now finally gotten around to taking some pictures of my current gigging rig. it can be seen here!

Load your pics, this site is so much better than others I look at where you cannot insert an image. They also censor quite a bit more for words like bull**** or bitchin' which I find rather prudish and 1850.

You can upload your pics into a photo album on your personal CP info (top left tab) merely get the URL or direct link and insert on the image tab above the post window. Best thread on boards I have seen. I tried to start one on FAV guitars but it seems to drop down before it is noticed I guess. Helps to remember to subscribe to the thread so you can cal it up on the Quick Links tab.

Hey guys, anyone want my Original, Rare DBA "Robot Pedal"?

I have the first Original and out of stock Death by Audio Robot pedal.
Not the one you can find now.

Anyone want it? I need to move it, like today.
