Looks like a real nice setup. There's a lot of tonal possibilities you could get out of that board

Thanks smile.gif

There's a tuner, compressor, distortion, overdrive/tone shaper, chorus, tremolo and delay.
Everything a pedalboard needs smile.gif

Good question, Ville - and what sort of styles would you be playing with this pedalboard?

I answered WeePee's question in my last post.
But as for what styles I'll be playing, I say whatever comes to mind smile.gif
I can play everything from Pop and Rock to full blown apocalyptical metal with this board.
Just wait, I'll post some clips soon smile.gif

Very neat looking setup!

It is interesting to see tremolo in this setup. Why no wah pedal?

Not to big and well organized smile.gif Congrats smile.gif I remember how some very simple things became a huge problem while designing my pedalboard...Things like power supply distance from the most hum sensitive units, comfort of usage, space for power chords and signbal chords, Wah angle, ground loops etc. Even all the pedalboards look very "obvious" it's still a lot of work to be done to make it work correctly smile.gif

Great pedalboard man!! It looks amazing. I'm with Bogdan with this one, I would add a Wah Wah and a Volume pedal and I would be 100% happy.

I don't use it that often, but Tremolo can be really awesome on some parts.
And this particular Tremolo you can control the tone of the tremolo as well as having two speeds. really neat smile.gif

I have never used a Wah pedal, never found the use for it really..
Don't think it's all that great to be honest smile.gif

Thanks smile.gif I went for a small pedalboard as I want it to take up as little space as possible.
I actually have one pedal more on there than I originally planned, so putting it all together was kinda hard.
It went well in the end, and sound really spiffin' good if you ask me smile.gif

Thanks mate smile.gif
Volume pedal I have thought about, but just for the sake of creating swells.
Maybe I will someday, but not important right now. I need to finish some songs that I have been neglecting for too long smile.gif

Turns out my pedalboard wasn't finished at all...
The only pedals that's left on the board from that setup is the Delay and the Tuner :-)

Darn you Bearfoot FX! laugh.gif

I'll put up a demo of the board once it's "finished" again, waiting for the last pedals now.
This is gonna ruin me in the long run... laugh.gif

What happened man? You didn't like the pedals you already had in it anymore?

Yes, I liked them a lot :-)
However, I ended up trying Bearfoot FX Sparkling Yellow Overdrive 1 & 2, plus a Mad Professor Sweet Honey OD (Handwired version).
To be truthful, they killed what was already on my board laugh.gif

So I sold off a bunch, and ordered them (amazing pedals), and now I've ordered three more Bearfoot FX pedals.
Emerald Green Distortion Machine, Dyna Red Distortion and Pale Green Compressor.

I can't wait to get them home, and I'll make a test of all pedals and put on here after a little while :-)

I promise you, they're good :-)

This is one reason I'm happy and sad about using the Axe Fx.

Happy that I don't keep spending money buying pedals

and sad because I don't get to buy lots of new pedals to try out.

I love David Phillips ( LA Sound Design) pedal boards he does for clients , so neatly laid out and immaculate cabling and awesome sounds

I do agree - pedalboard design (what, where, how connected) is an Art itself. It's like never ending puzzle. Especially when You have to keep in mind all the outputs and inputs in use, some free spacing for power supply cinnectors, distance from the power supply etc...it's always a bit confusing

Haha! biggrin.gif Darius also pointed out a good thing about the art of arranging pedals. Good point here, as if you don't have a midi controller, you might as well start taking dancing classes too biggrin.gif

I for one am preparing my setup for the time when I will also be playing the guitar while singing - we're writing and arranging the songs on the new album so that they may accommodate 3 guitars. So, I will have to keep it simple most likely - I already have a simple setup but for the times when I play with the Pantera tribute, I always have to borrow a wah and a whammy pedal as I lack those..

Let us know when it's done, mate smile.gif

Here is mine:

Attached Image

Today I went to rehearsal room to configure new set-up. As I said my amp has no clean channel. I buoght a HBE Detox and a G-Lab midi looper so I could switch HBE through my Midi controller. I was doing test today. It works. Midi looper was necessary because I have to make 3 things at the same time to get clean tone - 1. Switch of the boost 2. add volume compensation in FX loop of the amp 3 switch on the HBE to cut of the gain.. some people might tell me It would be easier to by an amp with clean channel but...I love the tone and dynamics response of this one so...I found the other way smile.gif

Very interesting approach - you are referring to your Cornford amp?
