The other Eventide pedal is actually a Pitchfactor, and it's awesome.
I have the modfactor and the timefactor on one of my newer boards.



I love both the Eventide pedals- they are amazing at what they do.
The only issue I have with the modfactor is the q-wah sound isn't that quishy.

On the other hand, who hear is going argue that Tom Morello isn't reknown as a sonic innovater of the new generation, yet his pedal board is minimal.

There a few guitarists who just can't say no to candy, and who the **** actually knows how much they are even using! There are few guitarist that have developed a reputation for FX as integral to what they do - The Edge, Fripp, etc. I tend to refer to some of the goes as "eletronic guitarist" in that they are in sense "playing" the electronics as much the guitar like Keith Emerson played the Moog modules as much as he did the keyboard. And I don't apply any of this to them.

On the other hand, the bulk of us are "electric" guitars where the game is manipulated as much sound from the guitar and the amp as possible. When you are young, you just plain can't do this so you stock up on the boxes to get a variety of tone. As time goes on, if you are truly a player, you find 3 things: 1) You get tired of keeping up with all the ****. I mean its not like anything new has been invented in decades! 2) You get tired of dancing. You just want to become with instrument. 3) You find its really more challenging and interesting to see what tone you can coax without relying on the boxes

And finally, the statement: "We aren't all Jeff Beck" is as equally false as true. We are not the individual Jeff Beck he is uniquely unique. But on the other hand we are ALL Jeff Beck in that we have within us inner voices that can be developed and brought out and too much concentration of those boxes serves to inhibit the process.

The only effect I always want to keep is the wah. Pedal like that, the Wammy Pedal, etc, can actually be played so the effect come from you rather than just a box. On the other, I can't stand an "auto-wah!"
Bumped this one up. Nailed it on the head IMO.

I am pretty simple, I think. After years of dancing, I just can't do it anymore. I narrowed my board down to a tuner, wah, a uni-vibe, dm-2 delay, and booster. I use the BBE Sonic Maximizer for a rich compliment to the Marshall JCM2000 DSL. I really dig the tone... This is all driven by a few guitars, but my current main squeeze is my 2008 Les Paul Standard.

I use the channel selector footswitch or crunch, but I am experimenting with the clean channel and a TubeWorks Tube Driver for that... We'll see.

You've got some nice stuff there grego


Synth bass guitar rig; signal starts at the Philosophers Tone on the large board, and most of the large board is split in two via the Boss LS-2, with octave/vco/fuzz/filter in each loop; The LS-2 allows me to run the loops individually or in parallel. I just added the 2nd Freqbox and rearranged into the dual oscillator setup, and have a CP251 on the way to replace the Grinder (meatball clone)... good stuff





The whole rig is powered with two PedalPower 2+'s, including the MP201 and an FCB1010 (not pictured, used for the ableton rig), so ultimately there are only two power chords to the mains for the whole ground setup... (*edit- rather, will be.. the dc brick is powering two pedals, while waiting for cables in the mail)

I downgraded from the switching unit to something I can fly with. It was hard. It took 4 weeks of detox, but after several Gearaholics Anonymous meetings, I've been clean for 5 months.
Note: The unmarked silver pedal is a Durham Sexdrive. They're all fastened to a grill I bought at Lowes.

Latest version of my pedalboard, with a few things moved around and a few new pedals.
From right -
  • Dunlop Wah, Keeley-modded with true-bypass & Fasel inductor
  • Boss tuner
  • Keeley Compressor
  • Paul Cochrane Timmy - this pedal is incredible. Totally transparent, amazing sounding. Stays on all the time.
  • Barber Direct Drive - use when more dirt/crunch is needed. Cleans up very well by rolling off the volume
  • Keeley Katana Boost - for solos, either clean or overdriven.
  • Mike's Tone Garage A/B Loop - true bypass, so when they're not on, the entire top row of pedals is out of the signal path.
  • Loop A: Keeley-modded TS9, original Ibanez AD9 I bought in 1983. The TS9 sometimes gets swapped out for a Guyatone TZ2 The Fuzz, a much cheaper copy of the Univox Super Fuzz. Will often also just use the AD9 for slap-back echo.
  • Loop B: MXR Phase 90, original Ibanez Super Stereo Chorus I bought in 1987, DD6 Delay.
    Voodoo Pedal Power 2 for all power, George L's for cabling.

The most useful EQ control is right there in your hands.

Here is a cool one for Black,Brown Fender and Marshall EQ.

But when the amp is right.. You don't need outboard EQ really.

I try to keep it simple. I'm not a "great" guitar player, anyway. I've built this up over time based on what I felt I really needed in response to various shows and gigs.

I meant the playing hands themselves! Everybody has experienced the phenomenon of two players using the exact same equipement and the exact same settings yet sounding totally different. The frequency makeup of the sound is totally different because what a Hammond B3 player is doing with the registers a guitar player is doing with (mainly) his strumming/picking hand - basically changing the overtone spectrum depending where and how the note is being produced.

Having gone through painful but rewarding early classical guitar training I feel very strongly about this. Listen to a master classical player like Julian Bream, he has a huge spectrum of 'shade and light' and an small orchestra's worth of tonal colors at his disposal.

I'm not against using EQ pedals of course but the assupmtion that players are missing out when not doing so is wrong. I think that any kind of distortion/overdrive/fuzz box is a VERY complex EQ device and once you add the player the options are limiteless.

It's one of the reasons why I never was fascinated by Guitar synths. I feel that the spectrum gets limited and not expanded that way because 'managing' the string overtones gives you so many more options than even the most advanced sampling of a synth IMO.

Uh, the digital pedals are only on sometimes, as needed. The only pedal that's on all the time is the treble booster, which I built. No problem with "digital trash." That's an older DD3 delay that is made in Japan. The chorus is also an older one. The verbzilla was the most versatile reverb I could find and I auditioned several before deciding on it. It sounds good. I've found the best results by putting the time based effects on the effects loop, and the treble booster on the amp input. That way there's no degradation of tone when the time effects are bypassed.

To each his own, my friend.

This is the inside jacket phot from the Infinite Monkey Theory album I did with Angora back in '04 or '05. That's actually a combination of the guitarist's pedalboard (bottom) and the bassist's pedalboard (top). Plus some beer (flying through the air overhead at the moment the pic was snapped).

If you've got a good guitar and a good amp, you've got most of the tone shaping you need. While an EQ is nice, why not just use a better parametric EQ during mixdown or live on the board? I agree that one shaping is everything; if you think of it, overdrive/boost and distortion all shape your tone with EQ, although a different type than you're talking about.

Out of curiosity, what are you typically boosting/cutting, and what amp/pedals are you using? Maybe I'm missing something

Here is my DIY pedalboard, simple and efficient (the long white cable has been replaced for a short one?) :

Guitar In > Behringer OD > Belcat OD > Amp In
and?
From Amp Loop > Ibanez Chorus > Artec Tremolo > Belcat Analog Delay > Behr. Volume Pedal > Back To Amp Loop
and...
Rivera FootSwitch > Amp FS In

Inside the pedal board, the AC connector is going to a 9V DC supply and its multipedal connectors?
The wood frame has a cover, this makes a flight case once closed !
That's all, folks !

Do you have an endorsement with TC Electronic? That's alot of gear with the one brand name on it for one board.
