    Redesigned the pedalboard .... :dude

    Axess BS-2 (under the 2nd level)
    George Teese RMC2
    Peterson Strobostomp
    Keeley Compressor
    Xotic RC Booster
    Boss SD-1 (modded: Keeley and true bypass)
    Maxon AF-9
    Fulltone Choralflange
    Red Witch Moon Phaser Deluxe
    Red Witch Pentavocal
    (and clock ....)

    All powered with Pedal Power II (under the 2nd level). Fastened with Mounty P's and metal straps.

    Delays, pitch, reverbs, solo boosts: Intelliverb in amp's fx loop, controlled by the Midimate.

    Only thing on the list is a Line 6 Rotomachine (if there's room).

    Yek,
    THANK YOU!!!!!!! Some great ideas there. The duct tape with the different settings on the pedals is a great idea, not to mention the clock. Well Done! My Choralflange will soon have a makeover also! :dude

    Looks cool Yek.

    My pedal board layout is pretty close to yours...
    What are the dimensions of your board? (inches?)

    Thanks.

    The board is 27" wide, 18" deep, and the space between 1st and 2nd level is about 2.2".

    Knew it was close... mine is 23x18. Second level 2.5 high.

    I stick my Stobostomp over the wah.

    It's where your Keeley comp/RC booster is.

    That's how I guessed from your pic the depth was the same as mine. The Strobo will just fit on the second level over the wah.

    ... I also built a guard around my board to stop people from possibly grabbing at things. I went down the sides too though.

    It's the new tremolo pedal from Red Witch.
    Verrrry nice. Because it has a volume control, 5 separate voicings, a separate stomp switch for changing between soft and hard, and "bottom" control (takes out low or high freq's from the decaying sound).

    Okay, actually makes sense in my setup too, I'll try that.

    Well, untill I mount the patch unit I got from Loop-Master on my board, I use the side to insert the guitar cable, so .... On the other hand, our singer tends to step on my cables and sometimes pedals, so maybe it's not a bad idea ...

    Hahaha...the clock.....

    Reminds me of the time I had a clock on my keyboards.
    We played sets of 45 minutes and had to start at certain times. That's why I had the clock.

    So my guess is..........

    A clock is defintely needed on my board- I keep having to pull out my cell to check the time mid set (not cool).

    Where'd you get the mounty-p's? They're a great idea but I have a hard time finding em.

    Well, JPL Audio did that. I think they are not around any longer.
    Fact is that the stock/modded SD-1 hisses when inactive. The TB made that disappear. Nowadays several modders offer a non-bleed-through mod for the SD-1, including Analog Mike.

    Exactly!

    A shop here in The Netherlands mailed me a couple of sets. Still use them, they are great. Nobels makes them, they are on their site http://www.nobels.de/cgi-bin/products/show.pl?e_mounty-p.

    Where can I get a clock like that? Is it backlit? Standard grey is OK - I'm not really into custom colours...... :cool: :D
