If minimal pedalboards for P&W were a contest, I like my chances.

Epi DOT with 5e3 1x12


The only other "effect" is a Herdim pick backwards for proper U2 copping on one song.



My wife is playing a little acoustic, otherwise, just bass guitar, acoustic piano and drums. No keys, no second electric, no tracks.

I loved my Voyager until it too a schvitz on me. It has volume drops when engaging/disengaging the pedal =/

this would fit in any "mini-Board" contest. i am not a P&W player, but what i have learned from TGP is that the common P&W player needs a bit more gain stages and some extra effects - i dont know... i would it call small board without putting it in any genre.

Nice work. Its way overblown how many effects you need to play P&W music. All you really need is a good drive sound and some basic delay capabilities. And that's what you have!

exactly. It drives me up the wall when I see someone with a HUGE board that they don't know how to use. A lot of the pros (James Duke, Droff, the dudes from Elevation, Kunde, etc) all have huge boards because they know their gear inside and out and use it. When i started out 90% of my tone came from a Jekyll & Hyde and a DD5, now i run 2 gains and a clean boost and a Tap Delay (occasionally with a 2nd delay), i haven't even had a reverb on my board for months and i haven't really missed it (ok, that's a lie :p )

Start with simplicity, KNOW YOUR GEAR and ditch all the extra stuff that's not-necessary *gets off soapbox*

Its my understanding that your rig is clearly below minimum standards for P&W

I see the gain knob is on full, so my guess is tht he uses the volume know on the guitar for different gain stages.

Cool pedals BTW. I love the Voyager looks. Not in my ballpark sonically speaking, but good sounding as far as I've seen on demos.

Thanks for the props guys.
It's actually a Trader Joes green tea mints tin, not altoids.
I have gain full up and do control dirt stages with guitar volume/tone.
I like using the 4-knob config on the DOT and adjust the pickup that is off for the next passage so I can make quick dynamic changes by switching pickups. It takes a little extra pre-thought, but I can go anywhere on stage and not have to jump back to the pedalboard for a stomp for lead boost or jump into/out of a chorus.

I dropped a Polytune V1 into the mix. And use a Snark version of a 1-spot.

My acoustic is a just a Taylor 410e with a PW mini clip on tuner and A-T wireless. My wife's acoustic setup is equally minimal- Blueridge BR-143 and Radial DI. She just sport a Lava Pink Diamond cable, though.

I have been trying to upload a :40 second clip of my U2 style song intro.

Neat! But how are you going to do Oceans with just a single delay? :drown
I have actually never played Oceans in a service. I have worked it up a few times, but it always gets scratched from the list. And always with 1 delay- DD-5 usually followed with a Flint.

My wife and I have a solo vocal/acoustic rendition on deck when needed.

This week, we are playing 'Holy Spirit' -wife predicts it is the new Oceans- and I am using the semi-hollow natural feedback instead of a compressor for the sustain.

She hasn't heard "Touch The Sky" yet has she? :p
