This is my retired pedalboard. Sadly I used it for the last time a couple of months ago. I love tube amps but I've gone full on with the Kemper Stage.

I've never been a fan of SS, but this Quilter is really good. https://www.quilterlabs.com/index.ph...overdrive-200/

Basically I've switched to gigging a Kemper Stage. I was going to post a picture of my Kemper Stage on this thread as a fun thing, but some people may not have appreciated it!

Ha! I still have a Line6 Floorboard somewhere in storage that I was tempted to post in this thread just to see everyone get their panties in a wad.

I already posted a picture of my Helix Floor... maybe some folks didn't appreciate it. But then, I didn't notice.

Good job! I missed that post. I would have appreciated it, as I assume many would and not just for possible intended subtle humor. The Helix is a great unit.

I just got a Boss GT-6. It is absolutely just as terrible as it has been for 20 years. Gonna sell it to help someone out.

Fwiw, I also posted a picture of my older pedalboard before - proof of evolution or something.

I think pushing air is the deal when playing live. My Eleven Rack didn't sound all that bad as I was driving people out of venues covering their ears eight years ago.

Gotta say that, while it took me some time getting used to, I also enjoy playing with IEMs a lot these days. Especially on smaller stages and on longer corporate gigs, the sensation of pushing air wears off after around an hour or so, efficiently being replaced by ear fatigue.
On larger stages (especially open air, when there's way less reflections), higher volumes are still fun, but even in those cases I'm perfectly fine with my single 10" FRFR monitor, sometimes enhanced a bit by some additional feed through the venues monitoring.
Sure, there's the odd moment when I'm missing things such as my Orange 4x12 (which for me is the most phenomenal cab I ever played, original greenbacks and all), but that's really getting rare.
Only thing I really miss on IEM gigs is the option to get natural feedback. Was thinking about a sustainer PU already, but as plain pickups, they unfortunately suck, and I need a nice neck PU.

I've been reluctant to go the IEM direction with our band. I'm not good about letting go of the visceral pleasure of playing to the point of loud. Even though I have a substantial case of tinnitus, I still don't wear ear protection when we play. I damaged my ears beginning 50 years ago playing in bands and shooting guns without ear protection. The damage is done. I wasn't good about ear protection then and I'm not now, except when I shoot. I would however caution younger people to wear ear protection. Tinnitus is the opposite of fun. My best friend has hearing loss, obviously not a good thing.

Our band plays a few outdoor venues in the summer. Up until last year I always brought out my Twin. I sidewash myTwin and it's mic'd. It's just about the great sound of the Twin and what we hear on stage because the sound company ensures the band can be heard a mile away. No one suffers out front due to the speakers at the top of the stage. The only person that suffers is our bass player across the stage with the Twin beamed at him like a death ray.

It'll be better on the bass player this year with the Kemper Stage.

I’m leaving the past behind, fellas. The 2290 (and the tc foot controller) is in the classifieds... the roland, yammy and the VHT are next

I don’t rock like that anymore lol

You're new here. I believe the rule is that you need to have contributed at least 50 posts before you can post images.

Momentary state of things. The MIDI in the GEC-5 is triggering a Voodoo Lab Control Switch that switches my Fuchs ODS Classic. No MIDI on Timeline and Mobius, I like free access to those. I rarely need Volume or Expression Pedals, if I really do I just put them next to the board. Keeps it small.

How do you get to the ODS Ethernet connector? I have a Fuchs TDS this sort of sounds interesting.

Fuchs offers, if you contact them, a little box, made to your wishes, that adapts from the jacks to RJ45. Having said that, inside the Fuchs this is all very simple. I took another RJ45 cable, stripped the insulation and - after measuring the cables from inside the Footswitch to the open ends, just soldered jacks to it, common ground. Those are connected to the Voodoo Lab Control Switcher. Works just fine.

I think you're going to need a few more pedals. I would want at least 5 phasers and 7 treble boosters.

Yes,... must remember to lift with the legs and not the back. Actually, the board will most likely not leave the studio very often if at all. I just wanted a pedal board that will cover the needs of most clients during their sessions. From simple tones of Rockabilly to that of the more elaborate David Gilmour.

My wife would never allow it at this point in time, lol. I will be thinning out the pedal herd a bit by selling off a couple delays,... but will probably replace them with the Dawner Prince 'Boonar' delay modelled after the famous Echorec(all things Pink Floyd in that box). Probably dump a distortion or two as well. However, the GigRig Pro14 switcher makes it easy and quick to swap pedals in and out of the signal chain.

Ha-ha, yes,... with a touch of Skittles. Oh and the spoons,... aye, the spoons,...can never have enough spoon in the mix,... similar to the "more cowbell" syndrome,
