    Well guys, it's still a work in progress. There's a couple of pieces missing, but here it is so far...

    [​IMG]

    SIGNAL CHAIN

    Wah>Rotovibe>Arbitrator Fuzz Face>Moollon Clean Boost>OCD>Sweet Honey Overdrive>Joyo Crunch>Metal Pedals Dirty Bitch>Joyo Classic Flanger>Danelectro Chili Dog>Carl Martin Red Repeat Delay.

    Still to come:

    Homebrew Ultimate Octave - will go between Arbitrator and Moollon Boost
    Dunlop Tremolo Stereo Pan - will go between Joyo Flanger and Carl Martin Delay

    Danelectro Chili Dog will be coming off

    Thanks... It's my "definitive" board.
    I mostly use Distortions as you can see...

    Yeah, I'll be using 2 Fuzzes and 4 distortions. Then a boost, ambients, etc. Just a simple setup that really works well for me. One thing I'm glad about is the fact that I can't crowd my board. So I'm forced to get exactly what I need. At first, I was thinking the board space was a little too small. It's worked out great after all.

    That has been my experience too. I limited myself to a couple boards a little bit smaller than yours and one is set up now for live use, only individual pedals, and A/B input switch, and my loop pedal.

    The other has a combination of my digital multi-pedal and several other pedals, and although it works fine live really comes into its own in studio settings.

    Like you I was forced to decide exactly what i needed - and did NOT need - and that actually has worked out well as it has for you. (I do have a 3rd back up/misc pedalboard but that is really not in use now. It lives under the sofa in the studio and rarely sees daylight.)

    Agreed! One thing I have been constantly aware of is redundancy. Even though I have several OD/Distortions, they all are quite different from one another. And the same goes for my fuzzes. One is a Fuzz Face that I built (Arbitrator), and the other is a Fuzz/Octave by Homebrew. That covers things for od and fuzz. So anything more will be foolish, and take up precious real estate. Also, I keep my signal as clean as possible, so it would be foolish of me to load a bunch of buffered pedals on my board.

    It's all about simplicity...with me anyway! :)

    MAn!!! Talk about efficient. That's simple and to the point...in a good way too. I'm kind of surprised to see the compressor in front of the chain. Personally, I never liked compression in front of OD/dist/fuzz. How do you like it?

    Also, I love the Keeley Fuzz Head. That's a great pedal!

    How's this for small and uncomplicated:
    Vox V847 Wah - Boss DS-1 Distortion - Behringer SF 300 Super Fuzz - Behringer TU 300 Chromatic Tuner
    Does everything I want for the moment. Only thing I'd change is the SF 300... I'd love an original Maestro fuzz to go in it's place!

    vox reissue wah, late 90's proco rat and 1978 boss bf1 flanger like neil young has in his gigantic board. the suitcase was a gift from a buddy of mine who has the same birthday as me. he knows i like old stuff and when i told him my plans for it he thought it was a clever idea. the fender logo was one i had laying around so i figured i'd put it to good use - i already wrecked the suitcase so whats 2 more holes gonna hurt?

    here is the latest pic of mine. always seems to be work in progress. i think thats it then i have to change things:dunno: around a bit.

    i won't put them all down as you can see them. the green one is a byoc overdrive 2(ts 808 clone) the orange one is a byoc leeds fuzz. the vox 847 wah case has the byoc wah inside, i think its a modded early vox clone, but not sure. but sounds good and without the hum the 847 guts give me.

    Ain't that the way it goes! I seem to re-do them every 6-12 months.

    Am I the only one that uses volume pedals a lot? All my boards have a volume pedal after everything but before the delay and if used, loop pedal. Biddlin has 2 pedals but it could be 2 wahs or a wah and a volume.

    thinkgreen, how do you use your loop pedal live? Background tracks? record a riff? ...curious....

    I've not used the loop pedal much as of yet. I struggled using it for overdubbing, something I think will take a lot of practice. But I did plug my iPod in to the line out with backing track on and that helped at band practice. Not got enough confidence in it to use live yet. But it has got a lot of potential. A volume pedal is on my list of wants.

    This order seems to work. When I've googled stomp box order, most things I've read puts the compressor first.... but I'm sure open to suggestions. The way I have it set it doesn't compress as much as it boosts the signal thru the chain... Some days I play without it and others it's kicked in all the time. Depends on the mood. :)
