    Here's the proposed layout of a new board I been collecting pieces for. Its taken more than a year of testing, saving, and searching. I'm going to connect them with Lava Cable pedal board kits and power was going to be supplied by a rechargable power supply called a Voltz. I will have to do some fabricating to make it fit under the pedaltrain 2 but the prospect of being free from a power cord and 60cyl hum will make it worth it. The wah is a loaded Area 51 and the BJFE's make the palette of tones available limitless. I was able to pick up most of the BJFE pedals before the prices went through the roof and selling off unused equipment funded most of the rest.At todays prices and exchange rate the cost of a board like this would be pretty steep. I'm hoping this is the final incarnation for awhile. So much so that I may layout and drill through holes in the pedal train and use longer machine screws to fasten the pedals to the board insteed of velcro. The order I found best with my rig goes like this: Turbo Tuner > Wah > Candy Apple Fuzz > Little Green Wonder > Honey Bee > Baby Blue Overdrive > Dyna Red Distortion >Tiny Orange Phaser > Mellow Yellow Tremolo > Deep Blue Delay > Sea Blue EQ > A-B-AB box ( for driving two amps )

    Insane! Great board. Lots of $$ invested in those great tones, though. I will say, that the HBOd at least (the only BJF I own) is well worth every penny!

    That is one beautiful board you have assembled! I do miss my HB, BBOB, and and soon my MP LGW and I will always have fond memories of each of those little gems. Bjorn makes some of the very finest pedals out there with several very creative and rather unique designs to his credit. Maybe one day I will get another Honey Bee but at the time I sold it it made sense and I'm not one to cry over split milk or get caught up in seller's remorse. That being said, that picture of your amazing collection does kind of pull on the old heartstrings:NUTS. I know you will have a blast creating wonderful tones with your pallete of colors there. Pedal porn for sure!!:drool

    Thanks, The Loop is for spliting the signal for feeding two amps when you need the crazy BIG tone thing. The TOP is very lush and at slow speeds adds a great atmosphere to your tone. It is very tweekable and easy to setup so its not overpowering. This way it follows you ,insteed of you trying to catch it. The Delay is the same way, in it being the first delay I've used that stays behind you, doesn't get in the way. It isn't pristine clean but ended up being the missing link in my classic rock tones. Very echoplexish, works great for Allman Bros. slide work and Zeppelin tones. Here's a link to the power supply, 8 hrs of clean power / charge http://www.amperordirect.com/c/c-amperormusic/index.html

    Voltz thing looks pretty cool..great idea!
    I've got my mini board down to just needing one ac for my Line 6 delay...still using batteries for the BJFs...But no cords would be sweet! Gas kicking in!

    The LGW has alot of gain on tap, you can dial out the mid hump, good dynamics and feel, and it plays nice with other pedals, mixing with and merging with other drives or fuzzes to create new and usable tones. I have an older Eternity on my other board and the tones and builds are in the same league. ( the pros )
