Help placing pedals in my first board


Silver Supporting Member

I've been looking around many threads over here for a couple of months by now. I had made a decision to go back to pedals and had already bought a couple of them when I became aware of TGP. The before-TGB/after-TGP can be easily seen below. :bonk

When I bought the PT-2 I chose one where there would be lots of free space if I decided for more pedals some day - I just didn't know how soon it would happen. :)

I'm not in a band, so I'll be playing only at home. This way, I'm trying to make almost all of them fitting the PT-2 (including all my dirties lol). Some will stay out of the board, either at the very beginning or at the end of the pedal chain that goes in front of the amp, as well as at the beginning or the ending of the chain that goes in the FX loop. Also, since I had a Phase 100 when I bought the Empress, I'm going to place the former before dirty and the later in the loop.

Does the pedal placement seem reasonable for you guys? I'm playing through an Orange Rockerverb 50 head into a Mesa Rectifier 2x12 cabinet. Most dirties are for the clean channel, in order to have different flavors.

I know it's crowded and tight but they seem to fit this way. Like I said, since I'm not going to take it outside, it doesn't bother me that some pedals go a couple of millimeters beyond the edge of the PT.

Thanks in advance!

PS: most cables are Planet Waves Classic Series. It's going to take a while until I have the opportunity to buy very good cables for a reasonable value (i.e. US regular prices). I'm not really concerned about tone sucking right now.

PS2: Yes, I noticed that the Phase100 and the Colossus are twisted lol. But I was not going to take another picture just because of that.
